China: Blatant disregard of UN human rights experts’ recommendations
Amnesty International is deeply concerned that China has rejected recommendations made by other states during the UPR, to implement recommendations of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) in August 2018, to end arbitrary detention of up to one million predominately Muslim people in camps in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR). As a member of the Human Rights Council, China is obliged to uphold the highest standards of human rights. However, China’s rejection of recommendations to address serious human rights violations and its acceptance of those that contradict the views and recommendations of UN experts defeat the main objective of the UPR to strengthen the protection of human rights at the national level.
