China conducting intense global attack on rights: HRW

@hrw
The Human Rights Watch, HRW, yesterday said that China is using its economic and diplomatic might to carry out the most intense attack ever on the global system for protecting human rights.

Human Rights Watch made the allegation in its annual report, launched in New York two days after its Executive Director Kenneth Roth was barred from entering Hong Kong to release it there. The 652-page report said, Beijing has long suppressed domestic critics. Now the Chinese Government is trying to extend that censorship to the rest of the world.

Mr Roth was supposed to address a news conference this week in the semi-autonomous Chinese region of Hong Kong, but he was turned back by authorities at the city's airport on Sunday. Instead, he launched HRW's World Report-2020, which reviews human rights practices in nearly 100 countries, at the United Nations headquarters.

The report accuses China of repeatedly threatening other member states at the United Nations. It says that pressure has even reached the Secretary-General Antonio Guterres noting that he has been unwilling to publicly demand an end to the detention of Muslims in Xinjiang.

The report also says China, which has a Permanent Seat on the UN Security Council, routinely blocks initiatives at the world body's Human Rights Council.
