It continues: “The fact that children are deprived of the opportunity to practise their Uighur culture, that they are sometimes given Han names, and that they are sometimes subject to adoption by Han ethnic families, all bolsters the evidence that their forced removal is carried out with the intention of destroying the Uighur population as an ethnic group as such.”
