Az ENSZ Emberi Jogi Bizottságának 24. ülésén elhangzott kormányzati nyilatkozatok a tibeti/kínai emberjogi helyzetről

2013. szeptember 17./ITN/TibetPress

jelenleg csak angolul olvasható. Magyarul később.

European Union: China has made pledges relating to minority rights and freedom of express and association as part of its bid for re-election to the HRC. Against these commitments, the EU expresses its concerns about on-going reports of human rights violations in China, particularly the use of force against peaceful protests, especially in Tibetan-inhabited areas and Xinjiang. The EU is likewise concerned about the widespread exercise of the capital punishment. We would also like to reiterate our deep concerns regarding the detention of several Chinese civil society activists, including Dr. Xu Zhiyong. While encouraging China to continue its efforts to fight corruption and strengthen the rule of law, the EU urges China fully to respect the rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association, and rights of persons belonging to minorities. The EU looks forward to China's participation at the forthcoming UPR examination scheduled for October.

USA: China has increased arrests, enforced disappearances and extralegal detentions of public interest lawyers, Internet activists, journalists, religious leaders, and others who challenge policies and actions, including Xu Ziyong; has increased Internet controls, press censorship; and limit religious freedom, particularly in Tibetan and Uighur areas.
Czech Republic: We are closely monitoring the human rights situation in China. We express our concern about detentions of human rights defenders, independent journalists, and political activists. We encourage the Chinese authorities to respect the right to freedom of expression as enshrined in relevant international conventions and declarations.

Germany: Germany continues to be worried about human rights violations in China. Recent reports about harsh sentences, including capital punishment, against Tibetans charging them with incitement to self-immolations raise strong concerns. Germany calls on the Chinese authorities to respect fundamental rights, especially the rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association under the UDHR and the Constitution of the PRC and rule of law. Germany urges China to address the deep-rooted causes of the on-going self-immolations in a peaceful manner, respecting cultural and religious rights of Tibetans. In this respect we continue to encourage China to facilitate a visit by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in the near future. We look forward to raising some of these issues during the upcoming UPR.

UK: China pledged to guarantee the lawful rights of ethnic minorities as part of its bid for re-election to this Council. The UK urges China to ensure the constitutionally-guaranteed rights of freedom of assembly and demonstration are fully protected, including in ethnic minority areas.

Austria: In China, within the system of “re-education through labour” (LAOJIAO), persons can be detained for up to four years without any meaningful judicial oversight. It is believed that there are currently thousands of activists held in “re-education through labour” camps. We noticed with satisfaction that some of the Chinese “re-education through labour” camps were recently closed in a number of regions. We call on the Government of China to fulfill its promise to abolish once and for all countrywide these so called “LAOJIAO”, where persons can be detained for up to 4 years without adequate judicial oversight, as well as any other form of extra-legal detention.

Human Rights Watch: Chinese officials often insist that the country’s human rights be given special consideration and be considered in light of “national conditions.” Yet the purpose of UPR is for all countries to be scrutinized equally, and a government that denies rather than embraces popular participation in the process deserves no leeway. We call on China to take concrete and meaningful steps to put an end to human rights violations. No State can be exempted of its obligations to protect human rights. If China does not show significant progress through the UPR, given the gravity of the abuses, member states should seriously start considering the situation through a resolution.
