In exile: Chinese ex-police officer reports torture against Uyghurs

Hundreds of armed police officers go from house to house in the Uyghur communities in western China, taking people out of their homes, handcuffing them and threatening to shoot them if they resist. A Chinese in exile describes the government’s actions against allegedly innocent Uyghurs. The man, who wants to remain anonymous in order to protect his family members who remained in China, said he was once sent to the Xinjiang troubled region as a police officer.

In one Interview with the American news channel CNN the man reports under the pseudonym “Jiang” about systematic torture against ethnic Uyghurs and about the prison camps in the region. For years, China has denied interning people solely on the basis of their ethnicity. Beijing officially takes the position to fight separatism and Islamist terrorism in Xinjiang.
