Almost five years after the internment campaign began, relatives interviewed by Reuters say such requests have fallen on deaf ears. China denies it has hampered efforts by relatives to find information on detained relatives. China’s foreign ministry declined to comment on its policies on communicating with overseas relatives of people detained in China, and referred Reuters to Xinjiang authorities. Of the eight relatives of detained Uyghurs Reuters spoke to, six were based in the United States, all of whom said appeals to the Chinese embassy in Washington went unanswered. Some relatives say China’s public attempts to discredit Uyghur claims of rights abuses have become a key way to learn more about their relatives detained in Xinjiang.

A Chinese national flag flutters outside the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) building on the Financial Street in Beijing, China July 9, 2021. REUTERS/Tingshu WangBEIJING, Aug 1 (Reuters) - China's securities regulator said on Sunday it will seek closer cooperation with its U.S. counterpart and will support overseas listings, after U.S. regulators tightened disclosure for Chinese companies and voiced concern about Beijing's regulatory actions. The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said in a statement that it had taken note of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) new requirements for disclosure regarding Chinese companies' listings and that the two sides should "uphold the spirit of mutual respect" and "strengthen communications on regulating China-related stocks." Following suit, China's cyberspace regulator said that any company with data for more than 1 million users must report for a cybersecurity review before seeking overseas listings. China's central bank has also said that non-bank payment firms must report plans for overseas listings.

Kris Wu arrives at the iHeartRadio MuchMusic Video Awards (MMVA) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada August 26, 2018. REUTERS/Mark Blinch/File PhotoBEIJING, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Police in China said they have detained a 30-year-old Canadian man surnamed Wu on suspicion of committing rape, with state media identifying him as Chinese-born pop singer Kris Wu. The student told Chinese media last month that Wu had lured her into having sex when she was 17 after plying her with liquor. A police statement last month said the student was invited by Wu's team to his house for casting in music videos. Chinese state media have indicated that Wu's celebrity status and foreign citizenship are unlikely to help his case.

This September China is set to implement its Data Security Law, which requires companies that process "critical data" to conduct risk assessments and submit reports. Organisations that process data affecting national security must submit to annual reviews. That was quickly followed by the draft Data Security Law, which mandates mass auditing of big data. One Chinese tech stock index (.CSIH11136) has tumbled 40% from highs early this year on a widening regulatory crackdown ranging from anti-competitive practices to data security. Foreign firms that collect data within China are required to undergo the same security reviews when transferring data outside the country.

The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), set up in its current format in 2014 by President Xi Jinping, implements online censorship that has tightened dramatically under his tenure. The agency champions Beijing's policy of "internet sovereignty" that keeps China's massive online ecosystem behind the country's Great Firewall. We continue to open up and support the development of internet platforms and we will continue to encourage Chinese companies to engage in international exchanges and cooperation," he said. POWERFUL AND BUSYWith frequent regulatory actions and warnings, the CAC looms large over China's sprawling internet. The CAC has since 2018 been headed by Zhuang Rongwen, a vice minister in China's central propaganda department.

"Excluding quality Chinese companies from the indices will only hurt the image of and cause losses to the indices themselves," foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said. The United States is unjustifiably oppressing Chinese companies, he told a regular briefing in Beijing on Friday. The stocks will be removed from FTSE GEIS, the FTSE Global China A Inclusion indices and associated indices. FTSE Russell has previously removed Chinese companies including Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (0981.HK) and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co (002415.SZ) from its indexes due to U.S. sanctions.

BEIJING, June 29 (Reuters) - China's foreign ministry said on Tuesday that the recent characterisation of Taiwan as a "country" by a senior Japanese official was erroneous and a serious violation. Japan's deputy defence minister on Monday warned of a growing threat posed by Chinese and Russian collaboration and said it was necessary to "wake up" to Beijing's pressure on Taiwan and protect the island "as a democratic country".

Officers of the People's Armed Police stand guard outside the Museum of the Communist Party of China that was opened ahead of the 100th founding anniversary of Party in Beijing, China June 25, 2021. "Without the Communist Party, there is no new China," read new propaganda posters throughout the city. Upgraded security and its attendant disruption isn't unusual ahead of major political events in the capital, but the fanfare has taken on added importance amid new political challenges to the Party at home and abroad. The Beijing city government did not reply to a request for comment. Throughout China, local state-run institutions, including hospitals, schools and military units will hold special events marking the anniversary, including political-education sessions and party history exhibitions.

TAOYUAN, Taiwan, June 21 (Reuters) - Taiwan welcomed 2.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses from the United States on Sunday as help from a true friend, more than doubling the major semiconductor-producing island's arsenal of shots as it deals with a cluster of domestic infections. The American Institute in Taiwan - the de facto U.S. embassy - said the donation reflected the U.S. commitment to Taiwan "as a trusted friend and an important security partner".

Despite the pandemic, China has continued to pressure Taiwan militarily, seeking to assert its sovereignty. Only around 6% of Taiwan's 23.5 million people have received at least one of the two-shot coronavirus vaccine regimen.

Police officers patrol in the old city in Kashgar, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China, May 4, 2021. "Regarding foreign journalists' coverage in Xinjiang, China has always maintained an open and welcome attitude," it said in a statement, adding that journalists must strictly abide by Chinese law in the region. "Build ethnic unity, build a Chinese life, build a better Xinjiang," read a banner in a residential building in Urumqi. The tourist drive is mostly targeted at domestic travellers, offering Xinjiang a new revenue source amid U.S. sanctions. China expects more than 200 million visitors to Xinjiang this year and 400 million by 2025, from 158 million last year.

"This (research and analysis) really shows the intent behind the Chinese government’s long-term plan for the Uyghur population,” Zenz told Reuters. The Chinese government has not made public any official target for reducing the proportion of Uyghur and other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang. "This goal is only achievable if they do what they have been doing, which is drastically suppressing (Uyghur) birth rates,” Zenz said. Official data showing the decrease in Xinjiang birth rates between 2017 and 2019 “does not reflect the true situation” and Uyghur birth rates remain higher than Han ethnic people in Xinjiang, the ministry added. 'END UYGHUR DOMINANCE'The move to prevent births among Uyghur and other minorities is in sharp contrast with China’s wider birth policies.

In 1959, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled into exile, following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. The CTA and Tibetan advocacy groups have received a boost in international support amid rising criticism of China's human rights record, particularly from the United States. Tsering reiterated that when the 14th Dalai Lama passes he will only be reincarnated in a "free country", according to his wishes. "Why are they so concerned with the 15th Dalai Lama?" "The 14th Dalai Lama is still living and he wishes to go to China ... the Chinese government leaders need to learn about Buddhism first."

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s cyber regulator has launched a hotline to report online comments that defame the ruling Communist Party and its history, vowing to crack down on “historical nihilists” ahead of the Party’s 100th anniversary in July. “Some with ulterior motives ... have been spreading historical nihilistic misrepresentations online, maliciously distorting, denigrating and negating the history of the Party,” said the notice. “We hope that the majority of Internet users will actively play their part in supervising society ... and enthusiastically report harmful information,” it said. “Historical nihilism” is a phrase used in China to describe public doubt and scepticism over the Chinese Communist Party’s description of past events. Internet authorities often increase censorship and online supervision ahead of major events including historical anniversaries, political meetings and sports events.

Last month the United States, the European Union, Britain and Canada imposed sanctions on Chinese officials over human rights abuses in Xinjiang. Beijing’s propaganda campaign, which has included 11 media briefings in the capital since December, has repeatedly included efforts to discredit overseas Uighurs who speak to media. It has also targeted individual overseas think tank analysts, journalists and academics with sanctions, amplifying critical social media comments and aggressive state media coverage. ‘DADDY, WHEN WILL YOU COME BACK?’Uighurs living overseas have said videos of relatives, often produced by Chinese state media outlets, are staged. On Friday, Chinese officials shared clips of Mamutjan’s daughter, sitting beside her grandparents.

REUTERS/Cate Cadell/File Photo(Reuters) - Cellebrite DI Ltd, a digital intelligence company, said on Thursday it has agreed to go public through a merger with a blank-check firm, valuing the equity of the combined company at around $2.4 billion. Founded in 1999, the San Francisco-based firm provides digital intelligence to public and private sector firms conducting investigations, helping them convict civil and criminal offenders. Special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, are shell companies that raise funds through an initial public offering to take a private company public through a merger at a later date. Cellebrite will merge with the SPAC TWC Tech Holdings II and begin trading on the Nasdaq after the merger under the new ticker symbol “CLBT”. J.P. Morgan Securities LLC is serving as financial adviser to Cellebrite, while BofA Securities is the capital markets adviser to TWC Tech Holdings.

BEIJING (Reuters) - Designer Zhou Li took to the stage amid applause following her runway show at China Fashion Week with a prop that has political overtones: a bouquet of cotton plants. Zhou, chief designer and founder of Chinese fashion brand Sun-Bird, is a patriotic supporter of a boycott targeting several major western apparel brands in China that have expressed concern over alleged rights abuses in Xinjiang province. She said her garments on show on Tuesday, which featured slick minimalist designs with ruffles and ancient Chinese characters, used Xinjiang cotton exclusively. H&M, Burberry, Adidas and Nike are among those hit by consumer boycotts in China after their comments on alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang resurfaced on Chinese social media last week. The European Union, the United States, Britain and Canada last week imposed sanctions on Chinese officials, accusing them of human rights abuses in Xinjiang.

He had been under surveillance, faced threats of legal action, obstruction and intimidation, he said. “We don’t know why he left because he didn’t say goodbye.”Announcing Sudworth’s move, the BBC said in a statement that he remained its China correspondent. “We urge China to live up to its stated commitment to facilitate unhindered reporting in China. In particular the FCCC calls for an end to dangerous, personal attacks on individual reporters and foreign media outlets.”China expelled more than a dozen foreign journalists working for U.S. media organisations in 2020.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China struck an optimistic tone toward President Joe Biden’s new administration on Thursday, saying “kind angels can triumph over evil forces” and playing down early irritants as the result of an atmosphere poisoned by Donald Trump’s term in office. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying attends a news conference in Beijing, China January 21, 2021. Biden, who took office on Wednesday, is expected to maintain pressure on Beijing but with a more traditional and multilateral approach. Also on Wednesday, the new Biden administration criticized China’s move to impose sanctions on former Trump administration officials including Pompeo - minutes after Biden was sworn in - as “unproductive and cynical”. Others were less optimistic, fearing Trump’s tough stance on China would persist into the new administration.
