BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese lawmakers ratified on Tuesday a U.N.
convention that tackles the financing of terrorism, the official Xinhua
news agency reported.
The International Convention for the Suppression of the...
Financing of Terrorism was approved by the Standing Committee of
the National People's Congress, ahead of China's annual full session of
parliament which opens on Sunday.
China has supported the U.S.-led war on terrorism but human
rights activists say it is using the campaign to legitimise a crackdown
on Muslim Uighur activists in its far northwest.
The Convention gives signatory countries the power to charge people suspected of financing terrorism.
