Xinjiang govt reveals details of crimes committed by officials

URUMQI: Local authorities in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on Tuesday revealed the details of crimes committed by some senior officials who loudly condemned the “three forces” of terrorism, extremism and separatism in public, but provided financial and intelligence support for terrorist activities in private. It is believed that this is the first time the regional government has made these details public.
The two officials were exposed in the fourth documentary on the anti-terrorism fight in Xinjiang, which was released on Friday. The documentary contains a number of video clips concerning the region’s terrorist activities, cases of “two-faced people” and problematic Uygur textbooks, and for the first time revealed how the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) introduced terrorist recordings and videos into China. One case is related to Shirzat Bawudun, a former high-ranking official in the region, who was later found to be secretly supporting extremist activities linked to ETIM.
Shirzat earned the title of “counter-terrorism hero” after being injured in a violent terrorist kidnapping, but later became involved in colluding with key members of ETIM, using his position to benefit his brother’s company and providing large sums of money to ETIM.
The other case concerns Sattar Sawut, then head of the regional Education Department, who organized a criminal group to spread extremist ideas and incite ethnic hatred through composing Uygur textbooks, thus facilitating the spread of terrorism and extremism in Xinjiang.
The documentary drew widespread attention from home and abroad after its release. It shows that although there have been no terrorist attacks in Xinjiang for four consecutive years, the region still faces severe challenges from terrorism and extremism. Facts in the documentary refuted fallacious Western lies about Xinjiang, such as “excessive anti-terrorism” and “genocide”, and displayed the legitimacy and necessity of anti-terrorism work, Xu Guixiang, deputy director of the publicity department of the Communist Party of China Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Committee, told a press conference on Tuesday.
