Why oh why? I know China and Cambodia are very close and China has a lot of major influences on Cambodia in general and the Chinese numerous investments are contributing to the overall Cambodian economy and stuff but why does Cambodia has to comply to the Chinese demand for the return of the Uighurs for? Leave those 22 members alone. They already had enough suffering at the hands of the Chinese government. Can't Cambodia just say know or send those refugees away to another place so that Cambodia does not have to deal with the issue of the Chinese demand? Why oh why? It is happening again: Does any of you remember the time when the Cambodians trying to escape the mass killing of the Pol Potists in the 70's????? Countless of people of all kinds of ethnicities got slaughtered because other countries refused to acknowledge their suffering when they asked for help. For example, Chinese/Chinese-Cambodians went straight to the Chinese diplomats to ask for immediate intervention, but China turned their back on those Chinese in Cambodia because of the "great" friendship between China and Pol Pot's regime. As a result, those Chinese in Cambodia got slaughtered mercilessly at the hands of the Pol Potists. It is similar to the case of the Uighur refugees in Cambodia right now. The Cambodian government thinks that these refugees' lives are nothing when compared to China's huge financianl and economic packages designed to help Cambodia for many years to come. So now Cambodia is preparing to send these unfortunate Uighurs back to China. Why do money and friendship have to be more important than the human lives of the Uighurs?????????? Cambodia must leave these Uighurs alone and find a home for them somewhereelse to avoid the Chinese pressure. Cambodia must remember that too many Cambodians suffered the senseless killings of the Pol Potists because no other nations in the world helped those victims.

Cambodia to send 20 Uighurs back to China: US rights group
(AFP) – 1 hour ago

WASHINGTON — Cambodia is sending 20 Chinese Muslims who fled there after July unrest in Xinjiang back to China where they face possible persecution, a US-based Uighur rights organization said Friday.

The group has been taken to the Phnom Penh airport and is about to be put on a plane to Shanghai, said Henryk Szadziewski of the Uighur Human Rights Project in Washington.

"There is a plane ready to take them away," he said, adding that his organization had received the information from local sources in Cambodia. No officials could be immediately contacted for comment.

"This is an outrageous violation of international law, China's use of the boot of repression only guarantees deeper resentment and anger among Uighur Muslims and further tarnishes China's global image," said Leonard Leo, chair of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, a non-partisan advisory board to the US government.

The group arrived at the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) office after fleeing deadly unrest in northwest China's Xinjiang region and their presence in Phnom Penh was first made public two weeks ago.

The clashes between Xinjiang's Muslim Uighur community and China's majority Han ethnic group left 197 people dead and more than 1,600 injured, according to an official toll.

Amnesty International urged Cambodia earlier this week not to deport the group, earlier said to total 22 Uighurs, which is seeking UN refugee status in Cambodia, saying they risked torture at home in China.

The right group's appeal came after China warned Tuesday that UN refugee programmes "should not be a haven for criminals" and said the 22 Uighurs, including three children, were involved in criminal activity.
