Missing and incarcerated: What is happening within China’s borders?
Upwards of 10,000 Uighurs have been reported missing after detention.

COVID-19 travel bans and harsher media restrictions have provided the Chinese government some shade from the international spotlight in the wake of the country’s alleged human rights abuses.

Experts, however, say it’s "business as usual" behind the iron curtains.

A Chinese court sentenced Zhang Zhan, a 37-year-old citizen journalist who documented the early days of the novel coronavirus outbreak, to four years in prison last week after challenging the government’s official narrative of the pandemic.

She is the first known Chinese citizen to face trial for documenting China’s COVID-19 outbreak. Zhang, a former lawyer, traveled to Wuhan from her home in Shanghai earlier this year at the outbreak's peak to witness the virus's toll on the bustling city where the pandemic began. She shared videos that showed crowded hospitals and residents worrying about their financial state.

Zhang's trial lasted less than three hours and she was convicted of "picking quarrels and provoking trouble."

"Time and time again, we watch China violate its most basic domestic legal obligations, its own domestic legal obligations, simply to silence people whose views it doesn't like," Sophie Richardson, the China director at Human Rights Watch, told ABC News.
