Another 11 Chinese companies are added to the US "black list"

Chinese companies

The USA have added 11 more Chinese companies on their "black list" due to the supposed their involvement in the oppression of Uighur Muslims and other Muslim ethnic minorities within the China. With their inclusion in the "black list", the 11 Companies can no longer buy American technology without special permission.

Nine of these Chinese companies were added to the US list because they allegedly forced Muslim Uighurs to do forced work. These companies are OFilm Group, Changji Esquel Textile, Hefei Bitland Information Technology, Hefei Meiling, Hetian Haolin Hair Accessories, Hetian Taida Apparel, KTK Group, Nanjing Synergy Textiles and Tanyuan Technology.

According to the US Department of Commerce, the other two Chinese CompaniesThe Xinjiang Silk Road BGI and Beijing Liuhe BGI, were blacklisted for genetic testing used to further suppress Uighurs and other Muslim minorities.

"Beijing is actively promoting coercion work "and the abusive collection and analysis of DNA to suppress its citizens," said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

The US claims that this move on their part will ensure that their goods and technologies will not be used for the heinous actions of the Chinese Communist Party against defenseless Muslim minority populations.

US blacklist

OFilm is said to be a strategic partner and supplier of various technology companies such as Acer, ASUS, Amazon, Dell, HP, HTC, Huawei, Lenovo, LG, Meizu, Microsoft, Oppo, Samsung, Sony, Vivo, Xiaomi and ZTE, according to a report released in March.

The same report stated that OFilm produced key components for the cameras of some models iPhone.

Shortly after the release of the report, LG withdrew from OFilm and denied having any relationship with one of the factories mentioned in the report.

"LG Electronics expects all its suppliers to comply with our supplier code of conduct, which is very clear about our attitude towards forced labor. "LG Electronics has no direct relationship with any company called OFilm," the company said.

Meanwhile, Hefei Bitland, one of the Chinese companies that has also been blacklisted, says on its site that it is working with Google, Haier, Hisense, HTC, HP and Lenovo.

China has been blamed many times for mistreatment of Muslim Uighurs and other Muslim minorities, with many reports stating that the Chinese authorities watch the movements of these people. There have also been reports of others human rights violations, such as spyware installation on the phones of the Uyghurs and for placing the Muslims in training camps".

Prior to the latest sanctions, 37 other Chinese companies had been blacklisted in the United States for Xinjiang-related violations. Other major Chinese technology companies that have been excluded from the US are Huawei and ZTE, as considered a threat to the national safety.
