OFAC makes Xinjiang-related Global Magnitsky (human rights?) sanctions designations

As part of its continued pattern of actions against China, today OFAC added the following people:

CHEN, Quanguo (Chinese Simplified: 全国), Xinjiang, China; DOB 1955; POB Pingyu, Henan, China; Gender Male (individual) [GLOMAG].
HUO, Liujun (Chinese Simplified: 霍留), Xinjiang, China; DOB 1952; Gender Male (individual) [GLOMAG].
WANG, Mingshan (Chinese Simplified: 王明山), Xinjiang, China; DOB Jan 1964; POB Wuwei, Gansu, China; Gender Male (individual) [GLOMAG].
ZHU, Hailun (Chinese Simplified: 朱海), Xinjiang, China; DOB Jan 1958; POB Lianshui, Jiangsu, China; Gender Male (individual) [GLOMAG].

and entity:

XINJIANG PUBLIC SECURITY BUREAU (Chinese Simplified: 新疆公安局) (a.k.a. PUBLIC SECURITY DEPARTMENT OF THE AUTONOMOUS REGION; a.k.a. PUBLIC SECURITY DEPARTMENT OF XINJIANG UYGAR AUTONOMOUS REGION; a.k.a. PUBLIC SECURITY DEPARTMENT OF XUAR; a.k.a. XINJIANG BUREAU OF PUBLIC SECURITY), Xinjiang, China [GLOMAG].

to its Global Magnitsky sanctions program. Global Magnitsky is for both human rights abuses and corruption – one has to assume these are for the former.

My choice of words above is no reflection of my feelings about what is allegedly occurring to the Uighur ethnic minority in the Xinjiang area – it’s just an acknowledgment of fact. If you look back over the last few weeks, there have been quite a few State Department pronouncements about Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong and related actions/reactions by Chinese authorities, in addition to the issuance of the Xinjiang Supply Chain Advisory. It seems, justified or not, more of a campaign than an isolated action.
