Parliamentarians from 22 Countries Lead ‘Do Not Extradite’ Pledge

October 29, 2021


The government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is carrying out a global campaign of threats and intimidation against Uyghurs, Tibetans, Hong Kongers, Chinese dissidents and other activists abroad. Those extradited or deported to the PRC will not face a fair trial and are at severe risk of persecution, arbitrary detention and torture.

We, as legislators from across the world, pledge to advocate on behalf of all those facing extradition or deportation to the PRC based on their ethnic, religious or political status or activities, and call on our governments to put a stop to all attempts to harass and intimidate these groups in our jurisdictions.
