China strongly deplores the US signing into law of the "Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020". We urge the US side to respect China's counter-terrorism and de-radicalization efforts, stop applying double standards on counter-terrorism issues, and stop using Xinjiang-related issues as a pretext to interfere in China's internal affairs.
Ceasing PRC "Mass Surveillance" Now Official US Policy
The law makes ceasing PRC "use of mass surveillance" in Xinjiang official US-China policy:
United States policy toward the People’s Republic of China should be explicitly linked with the situation in China’s Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, specifically as to whether [...] the use of mass surveillance and predictive policing to discriminate against and violate the human rights of members of specific ethnic groups has ceased and is not evident in other parts of China [emphasis added]
The law also calls out violations of religious freedom in Xinjiang, specifically the:
particularly severe restrictions of religious and cultural practice
On the other hand, perhaps Hikvision should be encouraged to provide analytics for human rights violations. If their technology for that purpose is as atrocious as all their other analytics, Uyghurs could benefit from all the bad data it provides!
UPDATE: the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a federal religious freedom watchdog, has called for Hikvision's chairman Chen Zongnian to be one of the officials sanctioned by this new law:
We urge the Trump Administration to swiftly implement this new law by sanctioning Communist Party Secretary Chen Quanguo, former Political and Legal Affairs Commission Chief Zhu Hailun, Hikvision Chairman Chen Zongnian, and any other Chinese official responsible for the crimes against humanity occurring in Xinjiang [emphasis added]
The above is a quote from USCIRF Commissioner Gary Bauer.
