China rejects UN report on torture as ‘untrue’

with one comment

The Chinese Foreign Ministry on Sunday rejected a U.N. panel’s report alleging that police in China used torture, calling the accusations “untrue and slanderous” and saying some panel members were prejudiced against Beijing.
The U.N. Committee against Torture said it was “deeply concerned about the continued allegations, corroborated by numerous Chinese legal sources, of the routine and widespread use of torture and ill-treatment of suspects in police custody, especially to extract confessions or information to be used in criminal proceedings,” in a 15-page report released Friday in Geneva.
Qin Gang, a spokesman of the Foreign Ministry, said some members of the committee were “prejudiced” against China, had ignored evidence presented by the Chinese government on the issue of torture and were citing unverified or fabricated information.
“They put untrue and slanderous comments into the committee’s final conclusion, which lacks justice and professional objectiveness, against which China firmly opposes,” Qin said, according to a statement on the Foreign Ministry’s Web site.

Yes, hmm, if they don’t like us, it’s because they are very bad people, because Communist China has sooo much respect for Human Rights… 😦
