October 25, 2012

From Patrick Burke with CNSNews.com, “Both Candidates Ignored Human Rights in China During Final Debate, Activists Say”:

Sharon Hom, executive director of the group Human Rights in China, an international Chinese human rights NGO based in Hong Kong and New York, said even though the candidates did not mention human rights, they “did in fact talk about issues that have great implications for human rights in China.”

“Human rights are intimately related to trade and business. In that respect, the presidential candidates did in fact talk about issues that have great implications for human rights in China,” Hom said in a statement to CNSNews.com.

“Both candidates stressed the importance of China playing by the same rules as everyone else -- and we believe that one of those rules is upholding the rule of law,” she said.
