CGTN published this video item, entitled “The Point: “Uygur Tribunal” hearings” – below is their description.
The Uygur Tribunal held hearings in London on allegations that China is committing “genocide” and other human rights abuses in Xinjiang. The Chinese Embassy in the UK lashed out at the tribunal, saying it is just another anti-China farce concocted by a few individuals with the end goal of using Xinjiang to contain China. How does the tribunal work? How credible is it? And what is its true purpose?

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
