That this House notes with great concern the findings of the United Nations OCHR report Assessment of Human Rights Concerns in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region released on 31 August 2022; is horrified by the details in this report including the use of arbitrary detention, forced sterilization and mass slave labour; notes that the evidence for these egregious crimes against humanity is beyond reasonable doubt; urges the Government to strengthen Magnitsky style sanctions against officials in the People’s Republic of China who are involved in these crimes; and calls on the Government to now accept this Parliament’s declaration that the atrocities occurring in the Xinjiang region amount to genocide.
