US lists China among worst human trafficking offenders
« on: June 28, 2017, 07:24:28 AM »


The US State Department has downgraded China in its annual "Trafficking in Persons Report," placing it alongside what are deemed the worst offenders. It's the first time China has appeared in the category.


The Trump administration pointed to claims that China coerces labor from its ethnic Uighurs, a Muslim majority in the west of the country, and to forced repatriations of fleeing North Koreans, as reasons for downgrading the country in the US government's annual "Trafficking of Persons Report."
China is now in the report's third tier of offenders, which also includes North Korea, Syria, Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Russia.

Unveiling the report in Washington on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Beijing "does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so."
