Press Conference Announcement: Dolkun Isa, President of the World Uyghur Congress, Discusses the Removal of his INTERPOL Red Notice

National Press Club, Zenger Room, Wednesday, March 7th, 12:30 PM
The World Uyghur Congress and the Uyghur Human Rights Project cordially invite you to a press conference featuring Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress, in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, March 7th, at 12:30 PM at the National Press Club.
Mr. Isa will discuss the recent announcement by INTERPOL of the removal of the Red Notice placed on him by the Chinese government. Mr. Isa, a prominent Uyghur activist, has been the target of Chinese government harassment and interference for two decades. Despite his German citizenship, the Chinese government was able to use the Red Notice system as an important tool to attempt to disrupt legitimate human rights advocacy. The Chinese authorities have also successfully prevented him from participating in UN events and meetings at the parliaments of European countries. Mr. Isa will also discuss recent developments in the human rights situation of the Uyghurs, including stepped-up threats and reprisals against Uyghurs living in the U.S., France, and Egypt. He will be available to answer questions.
The event is open to all.  The below QR code can be used to access the National Press Club on the day of the event:
