On Saturday, Hong Kong challenged Amnesty International’s claim that a Uyghur student vanished after being questioned at the airport and said that official records proved he had either not entered the city or had been denied entrance.
Abuduwaili Abudureheman, who was born in Xinjiang in western China, was visiting a friend in Hong Kong on May 10 when he left South Korea, according to Amnesty International. However, after texting the friend about being probed after arriving, Abuduwaili Abudureheman vanished. According to the organization, he has spent the previous seven years in Seoul studying in order to get a Ph.D. in sports and leisure in 2022.
The administration vehemently denounced Amnesty’s “groundless and unfounded remarks” as an effort to slander it in a statement.
In reality, according to the HKSAR Government’s records, the individual hasn’t arrived or been denied entrance by Hong Kong, according to the statement, which made use of the region’s formal name, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Without verifying the information, the group “deliberately attacked the HKSAR Government and slandered the human rights situation in Hong Kong.”
