Help to put China under pressure;

The next “UK-China Human Rights Dialogue” is due to take place in a few weeks’ time.

This is a chance for the UK government to raise concerns directly with China’s government. China is already under pressure following a statement condemning their “deteriorating” human rights record at the UN this March and a damning review from the UN Committee Against Torture last November.

The Committee agreed with evidence submitted by Free Tibet and other human rights groups that the “practice of torture and ill-treatment is still deeply entrenched in the criminal justice system”.

This is an opportunity for the UK to press for action. Please send an email to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office to ask them to ensure that torture in Tibet is high on the agenda for the meeting.
