US could sanction Chinese officials over Xinjiang abuses 18.4.2018 General News
A senior US official says the United States would pursue sanctions on Chinese officials involved in a sweeping security crackdown in the western region of Xinjiang if they were deemed appropriate for designation under a law targeting human rights offenders. Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Laura Stone said today that the US was deeply concerned about China's detention of at least "tens of thousands" of ethnic Uighurs and other Muslims and could take action under the 2016 Global Magnitsky Act. Beijing has defended its crackdown as a "People's War on Terror." The programme has swept up countless people without legal due process, including relatives of American citizens. US lawmakers raised the possibility of Magnitsky Act sanctions in April, signaling growing alarm in Washington over human rights abuses in Xinjiang.

New China 'crime' crackdown targets threats to party rule 16.3.2018 General News
As Tibetans prepared to celebrate a Buddhist new year festival with prayers and dance, police officers went to schools, airports and public squares to read out "21 kinds of dark and evil forces," a list of new criminal targets. "Number Two: Individuals associated with the Dalai Lama clique" supporters of the Tibetan spiritual leader said the list issued by the Chinese region's public security bureau. Slightly further down the list were people described as "Protecting the Mother Tongue" those seeking to preserve the Tibetan language. These targets are part of a new campaign against alleged organized crime in China that expands the range of people law enforcement officials can take into custody in the name of preserving peace and order. Analysts say the crackdown will help President Xi Jinping win political support in village, county and other lower-level jurisdictions.

US leader Pelosi seeks efforts for meaningful Tibet autonomy 10.3.2018 General News
On the 59th anniversary of Tibetan Uprising Day, a top American leader today sought to re-energise international efforts to ensure meaningful autonomy for Tibet. "If we do not speak out for human rights in Tibet because of economic concerns, then we lose all moral authority to talk about human rights in any other place in the world," Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, said in a statement. Every year, Tibetan Uprising Day commemorates resistance to occupation of Chinese government forces in Tibet on March 10, 1959. "Let us move forward together, renewed by the enduring faith of the Tibetan people and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and re-energise our efforts to ensure meaningful autonomy for Tibet and guarantee that the culture, religion and human rights of the Tibetan people be fully and forever respected," Pelosi said.
