Uyghur Man on Trial for Spying
A Chinese man will go on trial next week, charged with spying on Uyghur refugees in Sweden.
The man, a Swedish-based Uyghur journalist is accused of passing on detailed information to Chinese authorities regarding refugees in Sweden from China's Uyghur minority, including former prisoners of the US Guantanamo Bay facility who were found to be innocent.
The public prosecutor in the case says that preventing Uyghur’s released from US custody from getting asylum in Sweden has been a high priority for China which continues to treat the former prisoners as terrorists. The suspect denies the charges.
