Uyghur American Association rejects “terror” allegations leveled at Uyghur refugees in Thailand

The Uyghur American Association (UAA) expresses alarm over a March 24 report in the Bangkok Post in which a Thai police source claims the Uyghur refugees currently in Thailand are suspected of seeking to “train in terror” outside of China. UAA believes the comment is a targeted smear against asylum seekers with legitimate claims and is an attempt to influence on-going investigations into the cases of Uyghur refugees in Thailand.

UAA is concerned to learn the police source cited Chinese police allegations when making the “terror” claims. China’s documented record of regularly conflating terrorism with peaceful dissent questions “terror” accusations made by Chinese officials.

UAA urges Thai authorities to not deport Uyghur refugees and to work with UNHCR to find them safe third countries. UAA also encourages the United States and Turkey to continue their efforts to ensure the safety of the Uyghur refugees and asks the Organization of the Islamic Conference to monitor the situation closely.
