UK lawmakers declare China’s treatment of Uyghurs genocide

UK lawmakers declare China’s treatment of Uyghurs genocide

British lawmakers unanimously declared China’s ongoing crackdown in Xinjiang a genocide on Thursday. With this, the United Kingdom joins the United States, Canada and the Netherlands in condemning Beijing’s actions against Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in the far-west region in the strongest possible terms. The motion was introduced by Conservative lawmaker Nusrat Ghani. In her speech she remarked, “while we must never misuse the term genocide, we must not fail to use it when it’s warranted.” Consequently, the House of Commons passed unopposed a non-binding resolution condemning “mass human rights abuses and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region.” The support for the motion is non-binding, meaning it is up to the government to decide what action, if any, to take next.

China has been accused of detaining up to 2 million people in a system of camps set up across Xinjiang in recent years, with survivors alleging widespread abuse, including brainwashing, torture, rape and forced labor. Beijing continues to defend the system as a vocational training and deradicalization program vital to ensuring the region’s security.

“Statements of solidarity mean a lot, but Uyghurs need them to be followed up with meaningful action, said Rahima Mahmut, Director of the World Uyghur Conference in the UK, when reacting to the motion. “Only when the Chinese government faces the consequences of its actions will it be deterred from further abuses. That the British parliament has unanimously recognised this as genocide is a major victory for all those who have been drawing attention to these abuses over many years.”

Thursday’s motion comes in the wake of Britain’s increasing tensions with China as Britain joined the US, France and Netherlands in sanctioning Chinese Communist Party officials over human rights abuses. In response to the motion, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced new sanctions against UK institutions and individuals including Ghani.

The Chinese embassy to the UK on Friday strongly opposed the motion and described it as a “blatant interference in China’s internal affairs”.

President Biden formally recognizes Armenian genocide

President Biden formally recognizes Armenian genocide

On Armenian Remembrance Day, President Biden became the first US President to formally designate the killing of 1.5 million Armenians during WWI as a genocide.

In a statement released on Saturday, President Biden spoke of the atrocities and honored both the victims of the massacre as well as the survivors who found refuge in the US. President Biden’s statement fulfills a campaign promise to use the word “genocide” to describe the systematic extermination and deportation of Ottoman-era Armenians in what is now present day Turkey.

President Biden maintains that the purpose of his statement is to “remember so that we remain ever-vigilant against the corrosive influence of hate,” and not to “cast blame.” However, some political analysts question the timing and purpose of the president’s announcement and worry that it will fuel anti-Western forces in Turkey.

There is concern that President Biden’s recognition could further fracture the already tenuous diplomatic ties between the US and Turkey. Continued positive relations between the two countries is especially critical in light of President Biden’s recent pledge to remove all US forces from Afghanistan by September 11th this year. Turkey maintains a small force in Afghanistan that would provide needed stability to the region in the wake of a US withdrawal.

President Biden’s historic choice to formally recognize the Armenian genocide marks an inflection point with bipartisan support. In its reception, President Biden’s statement has largely been viewed as not only a sharp pivot from the prior period of US denial but also a sign of the administration’s broader commitment to the defense of human rights.

Leaked documents expose loopholes in Malta cash-for-passports scheme managed by Swiss citizen who holds PhD in Law from the University of Zurich

Leaked documents expose loopholes in Malta cash-for-passports scheme managed by Swiss citizen who holds PhD in Law from the University of Zurich

Ius Doni: The Acquisition of Citizenship by Investment

Leaked documents Wednesday exposed Malta’s cash-for-money scheme, which provided loopholes for Chinese, Saudi and Russian millionaires to attain EU passports. The documents were exposed by the Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation following material obtained from a whistleblower as part of an investigation that began in 2013. In this scandal, foreign nationals were given passports following lucrative investments worth millions of euros and a requisite three-week stay in the country.

According to the Foundation’s investigation, while Malta’s Parliament was in recess, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat introduced a scheme for individuals to buy Maltese passports behind the scenes. He did so by establishing a new state agency known as Identity Malta, which incorporated all departments responsible for passports, identity cards, and work and residence permits. He subsequently signed an agreement with Henley and Partners to take over a passport sales program. This endeavor has been reported to have made over EUR 1 billion in the first 18 months of operation alone.

According to the EU Commission, so-called “golden passports” undermine the essence of EU citizenship, and the commission has stressed that member states should only provide passports to individuals with genuine connections to the country.

Following the Foundation sending Henley & Partners a list of 40 questions, they received a number of detailed classified responses and a single statement for publication. According to the corporation, they had simply assisted Malta in “a remarkably successful sovereign and economic innovation platform, raising hundreds of millions of Euros … without which healthcare, social and cultural investments would not have been possible.” They further claimed that allegations of a “systemic problem” are “fundamentally false and potentially defamatory”.

Demand for passports was especially high from Russian buyers following EU imposed sanctions on the state in 2014 with regard to the Crimean Referendum and Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, whilst demand was also identified from individuals affected by former US president Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban.” There has also been recent spike in UK citizens buying passports following the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Cyprus, which is alleged to be running a similar scheme, is facing infringement proceedings, too.

UN rights experts urge Switzerland to repatriate young girls held in Syria camp

UN rights experts urge Switzerland to repatriate young girls held in Syria camp

UN human rights experts on Thursday called on Switzerland to repatriate two girls, aged 9 and 14, who are being held in a camp in northeastern Syria. The girls’ mother allegedly abducted the girls five years ago and joined ISIS.

The Syrian Democratic Forces arrested the girls’ mother and transferred her as well as her daughters to the Roj camp in the summer of 2019, where they are still being held today.

The two fathers of the girls, who live in Geneva, asked the Swiss government to take necessary steps to repatriate their daughters. The mother took the girls on the guise of a vacation in August 2016, but went to Syria instead.

“Deprived of their liberty for several years already in the camp of Al-Hol and then in Roj, denied of their right to return to Switzerland and be reunited with their families, the detention of these two children increasingly exposes them to all kinds of abuse,” the experts said.

The half-sisters’ health is also a concern. The older daughter reportedly has anemia and allegedly suffered a severe shrapnel wound to her leg. She has needed three operations. The younger daughter is also said to be in poor health.

Children detained for association with armed groups should be recognized as victims of serious violations of human rights and humanitarian law, and family reunification should always be a priority, the experts said.

“The detention of these two Swiss girls in these conditions is contrary to their best interests and contravenes international human rights conventions to which Switzerland is a party,” the experts further said. “In this respect, Switzerland’s position not to actively intervene to repatriate the mother of the two children should not be a reason to leave these two girls in such a distressing situation in which they are held now.”

There are several thousand children still living in camps in northeastern Syria in similar conditions to those of the two girls.

Dutch court convicts Syrian man for war crimes

Dutch court convicts Syrian man for war crimes

The District Court of The Hague, Netherlands, convicted Ahmad Al-Y, a 31-year-old Syrian man, on Wednesday for fighting with the terrorist organization Ahrar al-Sham, and sentenced him to six years in prison.

The court convicted Al-Y for the war crime of assault on personal dignity. In 2015, Al-Y fought with Ahrar al-Sham in the battle of al-Ghab in Syria. In a video posted to Youtube, Al-Y is shown taunting dead bodies by kicking and spitting on them, among other things.

The Dutch authorities arrested Al-Y in 2019 when he tried to apply for asylum in the Netherlands. The German authorities put Al-Y on their most wanted list, which caught the attention of the Dutch police.

The court gave Al-Y a lower sentence in comparison to similar cases. The court’s rationale was that Al-Y is not a foreign fighter, he is Syrian and the actions took place in Syria. Ahrar al-Sham also operates on a smaller scale than other terrorist organizations like ISIS. Additionally, the victims were not recognizable in the video.
