Live: Are some media outlets manipulating facts in Xinjiang stories?媒体是否在新疆人权报道中歪曲事实?

In this week’s Headline Buster, we look at recent media reports on Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Some media outlets have jumped on the story about so-called overseas representatives of China’s Uygur ethnic group filing evidence to the International Criminal Court to spark an investigation on alleged human rights violations, including forced sterilization. But are these reports founded on strong evidence? What has been twisted?

In This Story: International Criminal Court

The International Criminal Court is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague, Netherlands. The ICC is the first and only permanent international court with jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression. It is intended to complement existing national judicial systems and it may therefore exercise its jurisdiction only when national courts are unwilling or unable to prosecute criminals.
