Oral Statement - General Debate on Item 4 (“Human Rights situations that require the Council´s attention”) at the 20th Session of the UN Human Rights Council

Thank you Madam President.

The Nonviolent Radical Party (NRP) is extremely concerned about the recent deaths of two Uyghur minors in detention and the attacks on religious schools in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR), China. All three incidents fall against the backdrop of heightened security presence in Xinjiang since the death of 4 Uyghurs following clashes with police in Korla and the anniversary of a brutally suppressed peaceful protest in Urumqi on 5 July 2009 which caused ethnic unrest leaving hundreds dead.
