Lisa Nandy – 2021 Comments on Chinese Sanctions Against UK Parliamentarians

The comments made by Lisa Nandy, the Shadow Foreign Secretary, on 26 March 2021.

These sanctions are a blatant attempt to silence British Parliamentarians who are shining a spotlight on the appalling persecution of the Uyghur people. They will not succeed.

The UK has a moral duty to continue to raise the horrific abuses taking place in Xinjiang, and we will continue to press the government to lead the international community to hold the Chinese government to account for their actions.
