On October 19, Wang Junzheng, former Secretary of the CCP Xinjiang Political and Legal Affairs Commission and Deputy Secretary of the Party in Xinjiang Autonomous Region, was promoted to Secretary of the Party in Tibet. Wang, among other CCP officials, received the most severe sanctions from the West because he directly carried out the persecutions of Uyghurs in Xinjiang.
A large amount of evidence provided by UN experts and independent scholars showed that the CCP detained at least 1 million Uyghurs and other ethnic Muslims in concentration camps since 2016. Prisoners were brainwashed, forced into labor, and prohibited from practicing religion.
On March 22, 2021, the U.S. Department of the Treasury sanctioned Wang Junzheng and Chen Mingguo, Director of the Xinjiang Public Security Department, over human rights violations and corruption per the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act. In March 2021, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Canada imposed sanctions on one entity and four people, including Wang Junzheng.
