Intel has apologised to China for warning its suppliers not to use labour, or source goods, from China’s Xinjiang region.
China is credibly accused of conducting genocide in Xinjiang, a region whose inhabitants are mostly members of the Uyghur people and practice Islam. Human rights organisation Amnesty International’s assessment of the situation in Xinjiang found “Muslim ethnic minorities face systematic state-organized mass imprisonment, torture and persecution amounting to crimes against humanity.”
The USA’s assessment of the region states that China has implemented “wholesale policies, practices, and abuses … designed systematically to discriminate against and surveil ethnic Uyghurs … restrict their freedom to travel, emigrate, and attend schools, and deny other basic human rights of assembly, speech, and worship.”
