Sky News is alleging it found evidence that batches of Uyghur slaves are being sold in an online slave market with the apparent approval of the Chinese Communist Party. Of course, the CCP denies these claims.
For months, there have been reports that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been locking Uyghurs, a minority Muslim group, in concentration camps in an effort to suppress the minority group. The CCP insists these camps are for “vocational training.”
Unspecified sellers in China are increasingly using online venues to advertise Uyghurs for sale in “batches of 50 to 100 workers,” Sky News revealed on Friday.
“On Chinese websites, there are dozens of postings advertising Uighur [sic] labour, in batches of 50 to 100 workers,” Sky News reported on April 16. “Baidu, the company hosting the job postings, did not respond to a request for comment.”
Baidu is a Chinese multinational technology company providing Internet-related services, including China’s top search engine.
The Baidu advertisements suggested Uyghur laborers were under “tight political and social controls,” according to Sky News, which noted that one posting stated the “security of workers will be guaranteed by the government.” Sky did not mention the ads suggesting the workers would be compensated in any way.

Sky News added that it contacted the agents arranging these deals through the phone numbers in the ads:
One agent told us that workers from Xinjiang needed to be “examined politically” before they could be transferred.
The local government of the receiving province would also do a “political examination”.
All workers would be accompanied by “supervisors”, the agent said, and “under half-military management”.
