Treatment of minorities, detentions and suppression of freedoms to be scrutinised
China’s human rights record will be examined on Tuesday at a UN event expected to focus on Beijing’s treatment of ethnic minorities, detention of activists and suppression of religious and civil freedoms.
The process, known as a universal periodic review (UPR), takes place every five years for each UN member state. The country under review is meant to demonstrate how it has followed previous recommendations as well as answer questions from states, NGOs and others.
