Radio Free Asia: Activists Slam China's Human Rights Record Amid UN Review

October 23, 2013

From Radio Free Asia, “Activists Slam China's Human Rights Record Amid UN Review”:

In a statement released shortly after the Chinese delegation to the Council's second Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Beijing's rights record, the New York-based group Human Rights in China (HRIC) warned that the ruling Chinese Communist Party has continued to detain and punish citizens who had tried to contribute to the review.

"The Chinese are in the best position to know the situation of human rights in China," the delegation told the Council in its closing comments on Tuesday.

But HRIC said Beijing was trying to present itself as one with the Chinese people.
