WUC Raises Uyghur Crisis at the 43rd Session of the UN Human Rights Council

This week the 43rd session of the UN Human Rights Council (UN HRC) started in Geneva. In her written update to the UN HRC, UN High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet mentioned that she welcomed China’s apparent decision to grant her a visit to East Turkistan this year. She further called for unfettered access to investigate allegations of serious human rights violations against Uyghurs and others. The High Commissioner had requested a visit on three occasions over the last year and a half, which have been routinely denied or deflected by the Chinese government. The WUC has been calling for a UN led independent investigation to the region and insists that the High Commissioner be given unfettered and meaningful access to the region and the camp facilities, if she is finally allowed to visit.
