Dr.@adrianzenz testifies for the second time at the @TribunalUyghur
Dr.@adrianzenz presents his new findings regarding the connection between internment camps and the central government. Development and implementation of the “re-education”.
"We can see that Beijing carefully prepared its campaign of subjugating the Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang through an unprecedented build-up of different types of police forces, complemented by an advanced surveillance system based on the latest technologies."
"My methodology is to triangulate information from different sources at different levels. In my opinion, it is to look at a wider context. I look at local newspapers, witness accounts, and Chinese sources. I often try to create an early draft to hand over to experts."

.@PeterIrwin_ of @UyghurProject testifies at @TribunalUyghur about the arrest of Uyghur religious figures and intellectuals.
@PeterIrwin_ @UyghurProject @TribunalUyghur "We spoke to 5 imams, we wanted to learn what was happening to Imams in Xj. These Imams have been going in and out of prisons back in the 90s. Eventually what was happening to these Imams was for example they will go to patriotic courses in Urumqi for 15 days."@PeterIrwin_
"They were told that their preaching has to be in line with the party policies. They were responding to restrictions in a creative way. They found ways to continue to teach children. The surveillance, control & detention of close associates have made them leave the country."

The afternoon session of @TribunalUyghur second hearing started with Rodney Dixon QC who regularly appears in all international criminal courts, including the ICC. He provided an overview of his submission to the ICC Prosecutor regarding the persecution of Uyghurs in ICC states.
@TribunalUyghur "Early indications of genocides are the number of people in thousands who disappearing & are not being heard again. It doesn’t equate to assimilation. If they were to bring people back to work in the Chinese system then we will be hearing from them again, they won’t be silenced."
"The alleged plan is to bring them back and target them as a group, regard them as terrorists, but there is no evidence of any person involved in any terrorist activities." -Rodney Dixon QC. #UyghurTribunal

‘Perfect Police State’ author @geoffrey_cain speaks of the CCP's surveillance of the entire Uyghur region, “slow, sinister erasure” of Uyghur culture, the complicity of tech firms, & how the surveillance has been embedded in the daily life of Uyghurs under the PRC #UyghurTribunal Image
@geoffrey_cain "what started out as a targeted campaign on counter-terrorism/anti-terrorism emerged rather like a snowball effect. People who developed technology bought into the CCP’s propaganda before they knew what it was really for." @geoffrey_cain testifies at @TribunalUyghur
"With the help of her family, one of my interviewees got out of the camp. After her release she said for at least one year she couldn't do anything & she was very traumatized. Through the process of going to a psychologist, she understood what had happened to her." @geoffrey_cain

Rukiye Turdush @parlabest speaks of the CCP's Family Planning Policies & how the family planning workers approach the Uyghur people.
"Most family planning workers are very loyal to the Chinese govt, & they assist the govt while being aware of genocidal consequences." Image
"In 2017, Xinjiang Party Secretary Chen Quanguo encouraged officials to “round up everyone
who should be rounded up.” This vague phrase appears repeatedly in internal documents
from 2017." -Rukiye Turdush @parlabest
"Parents of Uyghur children were arrested & these kids were removed from their homes to orphanage camps & not allowed to see their parents, so they break their lineage, they were not allowed to practice their religion & culture & not allowed to speak the language." @parlabest

& other Muslims in Xj subjected to forcefully health
check and their blood was used for DNA sequencing. Image
@MayaMitalipova "For successful organ transplantation doctors rely on several important criteria including three main blood tests, cell surface tests and limited DNA tests to determine if a patient and a potential donor are a match." @MayaMitalipova @TribunalUyghur
"Next to concentration camps, there are crematoriums as reported by @RFA_UyghurNews, and there are a lot of people who are missing in the camps, this could be the result of torture or they are subjected to organ harvesting as well in my opinion." @MayaMitalipova #UyghurTribunal
