UK Commissioner Will Cancel Speech Unless Hikvision Answers On Xinjiang UPDATE: Cancels

By Charles Rollet, Published Mar 17, 2022, 07:59am EDT (Info+)

Just days after declaring that buying Hikvision puts "money over values", the UK's top video surveillance official says he will pull out of a national surveillance conference if Hikvision remains "unwilling to answer" his questions about Xinjiang.

UPDATE 3/22: Commissioner Sampson announced he is pulling out of the conference, stating "it is critical that we have open, honest and evidence-based debate" after Hikvision claimed, without evidence, that questions about Xinjiang touched on "commercially sensitive information" that would be covered by "anti-Hikvision and anti-China platforms".
