Church Court Chambers’ international law and human rights barrister Michael Polak has been instructed by two British Uyghurs to challenge the Government’s decision to allow Huawei to contract to provide a 5G network on the basis that it is alleged that there is evidence of the use of slavery within the Huawei supply chain and evidence that Huawei is ‘deeply implicated in the ongoing surveillance, repression and persecution of Uyghurs and other Muslim ethnic minority communities in Xinjiang’ according to the Australian Security Policy Institute’s Report Mapping China’s Technology Giants
