Reactions to UN special investigator Tomoya Obokata’s report, “Contemporary Forms of Slavery.”

The content of Uyghur slave labor in the report “Contemporary Forms of Slavery” released on August 16 by Tomoya Obokata, the UN Special Investigator, began to be covered by the international press today. This report, the world’s attention is “will UN Human Rights Council High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet release the report on Uyghurs before she leaves office on August 31st or not?” was published at one time focusing on the question But many media outlets are confident that the report on Uyghurs will be published by the end of this month.

According to experts, in September 2018, until the UN Anti-Apartheid Committee released a report on the detention of more than 1 million Uyghurs in concentration camps, countries and the press did not pay much attention to the concentration camps policy of China against Uyghurs. After the publication of the report, the war issue of the concentration camps began to occupy the international agenda, and to date, 10 countries and parliaments have recognized the “Uyghur genocide” and “crimes against humanity.”

Similarly, the issue of Uyghur forced labor has been recognized by the United States government, and special laws and regulations such as the “Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act” have been formulated in the United States. Although some Western countries are closely concerned about this, the issue of Uyghur slave labor has been officially and publicly recognized outside of the United States. There are almost no countries that have laws in place, and a report by a UN researcher called “Current Forms of Slavery” may have prompted this.

One of the Uyghur political figures who promoted this view, Mr. Free Alptekin, said that the report titled “Current Forms of Slavery” published by the UN special investigator Tomoya Obokata on August 16 will pave the way for a new wave of opinion about the Uyghurs internationally, and that this is very important for the Uyghur case. mentioned that it would be useful.

Ms. Abbas, the leader of the Uyghur Action Organization in Washington, who expressed the view that “the introduction of Uyghur forced labor at the UN may be a prelude to the publication of a report on Uyghurs”, was the resignation of UN Human Rights Council High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet on August 31 He stressed the high probability of publishing a report on Uyghurs before the departure.

The report titled “Current forms of slavery” is the 2nd report on Uyghurs published by the UN since 2018. If the High Commissioner of the UN Human Rights Council, Michelle Bachelet, releases the report on Uyghurs in the next 2 weeks, this report will be the 3rd. It will be a report and the impact will be higher than the previous 2 reports.

The Director of “Uyghur Judicial Archive”, Chairman of the Norwegian Uyghur Committee, and head of the Uyghur Information and Promotion Center, Mr. Balashiyar Omar said that the reason why the report prepared by the UN Human Rights Council is more important than the previous two reports is that it contains the statements of camp witnesses, punishment camps There is a wide range of content such as the evidence, forced criminal facts and the judgments of the “Uyghur Court College”.

According to the news published by “Free Europe” on August 17, “UN special investigator revealed that China has implemented forced slave labor in Xinjiang”, before Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, left her post on August 31, He will give the final report on his 6-day visit to the Uyghur region starting from May 23rd of this year.
