Dominic Raab to take aim at China’s ‘extreme’ human rights abuses in rallying cry to UN


DOMINIC Raab will today take aim at China’s “extreme” human rights abuses and call for the United Nations to be sent in.

Britain has re-joined the UN Human Rights Council as a voting member.

The Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, will call for the UN to be sent in with regards to China’s human rights abuses

And the Foreign Secretary has been preparing a full-on verbal assault on both China and Russia to mark the occasion.

He will brand Communist superpower China “beyond the pale” in a dramatic upping of hostility.

And he will savage Russia’s poisoning and jailing of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

On China, he will use his virtual address to the global peacekeeping council to say: “The reported abuses — which include torture, forced labour and forced sterilisation of women — are extreme and they are extensive.

“They are taking place on an industrial scale. UN mechanisms must respond.”

Mr Raab will pile pressure on President Vladimir Putin over his treatment of opposition in Russia, saying: “It is disgraceful that Navalny, himself the victim of a despicable crime, has now been sentenced on arbitrary charges.

“His treatment and the violence inflicted on peaceful protesters can only further reinforce the world’s concerns that Russia is failing to meet its international obligations.”

Although China and Russia are rotating members of the Human Rights Council, they do not have vetos, unlike on the UN Security Council.

Mr Raab will also demand the Myanmar military coup bosses step aside and release the country’s elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi, after a bloody crackdown on protests.
