MEDIA ADVISORY: Press Conference to Highlight the Case of Dr. Gulshan Abbas and Other Crimes Against Humanity in Xinjiang

(Washington, D.C.)— Members of the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) will conduct a press conference with Campaign for Uyghurs to highlight the case of Dr. Gulshan Abbas, who was reportedly given a harsh 20-year prison sentence, and other crimes against humanity occurring in the People’s Republic of China. Members of Congress and Campaign for Uyghurs believe the sentencing of Dr. Abbas is likely retaliation for the efforts of her sister (Rushan Abbas) and brother (Dr. Rishat Abbas) to publicize the mass internment and other atrocities occurring in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

CECC Chair Representative James P. McGovern (D-MA) will be joined by Representative Tom Suozzi (D-NY), Rushan Abbas, and Dr. Gulshan Abbas’ daughter, Ziba Murat. Ambassador Kelley E. Currie, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues at the U.S. State Department, is also scheduled to speak. Other CECC Commissioners may also attend.
