“The UN report proves that Liberia is on the right side of history” – Uygur

On September 8, a newspaper called “Front Page Africa” ​​published in Liberia published a review article about the report published by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The newspaper’s columnist Lennart Dodoo said in his article, “This UN report proves that Liberia is on the right side of history.”

He explained this by saying that the Liberian government was one of 47 countries that signed the UN Human Rights Council in June of this year to condemn the serious human rights violations committed by the Chinese government against the Uighurs and request an unrestricted investigation in the region.

He said: “Liberia’s decision to sign a joint statement condemning China’s human rights record at the UN Human Rights Council is confirmed by the recent human rights report released by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHRCH). . . The Kingdom of Eswatini is the second African country to sign the declaration.

In the article, the author noted that this latest report, published on August 31, is an impartial and independent assessment of the atrocities committed by the Chinese government against the Uighurs.

The author also noted that China is regarded as Liberia’s main development partner, and that it has assisted Liberia in many areas, from peacekeeping missions to the fight against the Ebola virus, in its socio-economic development.

“Liberia’s decision on China raises concerns that China, the world’s second largest economy, will stop supporting Liberia. “However, some Liberian diplomats believe that this decision is beneficial for the protection of human rights and human dignity, especially for a country like Liberia that has experienced serious human rights violations.”

In June 2022, Liberia became the second African country after Eswatini among the 47 countries that signed the condemnation of China’s oppression of Uyghurs.

On August 31, after the High Commissioner for Human Rights finally released its report on Uyghurs detained under pressure from China, the impact was profound. It is expected to be an important topic at the 77th General Assembly of the United Nations, which opens next week.
