China is not taking it easy with nine citizens and five members of the parliament of United Kingdom as it imposes ban for spreading what it called lies and misinformation about the country.
The ban comes in retaliation for measures taken by the UK government on Monday over human rights abuses against the Uighur Muslim minority group. Among those facing the ban are: Tory MPs Sir Iain, Nusrat Ghani and Tim Loughton, and peers Baroness Kennedy and Lord Alton, who are all members of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China.
Reports had it that, the people will all be banned from entering China, Hong Kong and Macau, their property in China will be frozen and Chinese citizens and institutions will be prohibited from doing business with them.
However, UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said those sanctioned were shining a light on “gross human rights violations.”
