In response to the Star news report, WADAH urgently appeals to the Minister of Home affairs not to extradite the Uighur political refugees. Uighur political activists are being persecuted and unfairly treated in their homeland. These refugees if extradited shall face oppressive measures and subject to mistreatment.
The People’s Republic of China has embarked on rigorous policies discriminating against Uighur Muslims and is actively pursuing programs that suppresses freedom of religion and is persistently victimising religious adherents. It has acted harshly against all dissidents and opponents.
Previous Uighur refugees deported to their country has faced severe punishments devoid of fair trial.
Once again, WADAH pleads to the Minister to use his discretion and authority to allow due process and prevent the expulsion of the Uighur political refugees.
