Lisa Nandy responds to Chinese sanctions against UK Parliamentarians

Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to sanctions imposed by the Chinese Government against nine UK Parliamentarians, said:

“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.”
