Chinese government ‘committed genocide’ against Uyghurs, independent tribunal rules

Uyghur Tribunal

China has committed genocide — among other crimes against humanity — against Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, an independent tribunal in London ruled on Thursday.

About the tribunal: Sir Geoffrey Nice, a British barrister and international human rights lawyer, founded the Uyghur Tribunal in 2020 at the request of Dolkun Isa, President of the World Uyghur Congress, to hold China accountable for its alleged crimes. The group, established with the help of the Coalition for Genocide Response, currently consists of lawyers, academics and businesspeople, according to The Guardian.
