Barry Sautman told Voice of America in an article published on 23 January 2015 that it’d more difficult to go after corrupted security officials in Xinjiang despite the escalating anti-corruption drives under the leadership of China’s president, Xi Jinping.

QUOTE:

Barry Sautman is a professor who studies China’s ethnic policies at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.says that going after security officials is more difficult in Xinjiang because doing so might raise questions about the party’s approach to maintaining stability.

“I think it is quite possible, for example, in other parts of China to touch people who are involved in various parts of the security apparatus, the Gong An Ju for example [public security officials] and it is more difficult to do that because of the security situation and the role that people play,” Sautman noted.

(香港科技大学研究中国民族政策的学者巴里•沙伯力说,这使得追究新疆公安人员的责任更加困难,因为那将影响中共的维稳努力。

他说:“我认为很可能,比如说,在中国某些地区,可以对公安等各安全部门的人员进行处置。而考虑到当地的安全局面和民众所起的作用,(在新疆)这样做则会比较困难。”)
