New secret documents reveal the relationship of the Chinese leadership to the suppression of Uyghur Muslims

A batch of "top secret" Chinese documents have been leaked to Britain's independent Uyghur court, linking the oppression of minorities in Xinjiang to direct instructions from the Chinese president.

A new set of previously unpublished "top secret" Chinese documents were leaked, linking the practices of the Chinese authorities against minorities and Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang, and the instructions of the Chinese leadership.

The documents have reached the independent Uyghur Court, based in Britain, and are 11 documents consisting of 300 pages, covering the period between 2014 and 2018.

It also includes 3 letters by Chinese President Xi Jinping sent to the highest leaders of the Communist Party in 2014, asking them to "educate the Uyghurs and resettle them to achieve ethnic balance in Xinjiang between them and the Han."

For his part, Dr. Adrian Zenz, an academic who was asked by the court to certify the documents, explained that they reveal the direct relationship between what the Chinese leadership wanted in 2014, and what happened later in Xinjiang, of persecuting Uyghur Muslims and detaining them in “re-education” camps, and forced labor, and demographic change to reduce their number against the population of the Han race.

Zenz believes that these documents reveal the Chinese leadership's desire to commit a "cultural genocide" against the Uyghurs, with the aim of protecting the ruling Communist Party and its interests, according to his interview with the Guardian newspaper.

The leaked speeches of the Chinese president included some sharp instructions such as "the need for the regional authorities to engage in an all-out battle to prevent violent terrorist activities in Xinjiang from spreading to the rest of China," calling for a "crushing preemptive strike to buy time."

In his speeches, the President also drew attention to the necessity of achieving "peace and stability in the region to ensure long-term economic growth," noting the importance of Xinjiang for major national projects.

Some other secret documents included explicit calls for a demographic change in the region, and not to allow the "severe imbalance of ethnic distribution of the population" to continue, by transferring about 300,000 people of the Han ethnicity to the region and "re-educating" the Uyghurs to conform their ideas and beliefs with the ruling party.
