U.S. Rep. Ritchie Torres Files Federal Legislation Requiring Annual Intelligence Report on Uyghur Genocide in Xinjiang, China
May 25, 2023 | Ritchie Torres
The “Uyghur Genocide Intelligence Review Act” has been officially adopted as a key legislative priority for Congress by a unanimous and bipartisan group of members of the House Select Committee on the CCP as a way to end the CCP’s ongoing genocide. It’s also being supported by the Uyghur Human Rights Project, which works to promote the rights of Uyghurs.
“Uyghurs are very grateful to Rep. Torres for this bill to make sure Congress has up-to-date documentation of the ongoing genocide,” said Omer Kanat, Executive Director, UHRP. “In the midst of ongoing atrocities, policymakers must understand that genocidal policies continue and are becoming more intense and permanent.”
