Jailed Uighur intellectual won Sakharov Prize

European Parliament awarded the Sakharov Prize for human rights to Uighur intellectual Ilham Tohti who has been sentenced to life imprisonment in China for separatism. The outspoken former Professor of economics at a Beijing university was convicted in 2014. European Parliament head David Sassoli urged China to immediately release Ilham Tohti announced the award, which was sure to sow diplomatic tensions with Beijing. The award is likely to anger the Chinese government, which has reacted furiously in the past to international institutions recognizing Chinese dissidents with human rights awards. China punished Norway with years-long, unofficial restrictions on salmon imports and visas after a Norwegian committee awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize to the writer Liu Xiaobo, who died in Chinese government custody in 2017. In recent years, however, Chinese officials have appeared to tolerate a degree of criticism from Europe, a region they have sought to woo amid a withering trade war with the United States.
