The Law Societies of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland unreservedly condemn the recent announcement by the Government of the People’s Republic of China of sanctions against lawyers for providing legal advice on the human rights violations in the Xinjiang region of China.

The actions of the Chinese Government constitute an attack upon the rule of law and the independence of the legal profession, and should be rescinded immediately.
