Babur Ilchi, program manager at the Uyghur Human Rights Project, an advocacy group in Washington, D.C., said that Reuter’s findings confirm what Uyghur organizations and researchers have been saying: that there must be greater due diligence to ensure that no Uyghur forced labor goods are entering any market.
“It highlights a clear need for stronger enforcement and for Canada, the U.K. and the EU to avoid becoming a hot market for dumped Uyghur forced labor goods,” he said. “These goods are directly fuelling a genocide and should be locked out of consumer markets.”
