Another thirty-minute "trial" in the CCP propaganda stunt called a "legal system", no doubt!

But CCP Show-Trials aside,
How many will the CCP kill in secret?
Or send into the labour camp gulag?

No one knows.

Chinese Separatists Tied to Norway Bomb Plot

Published: July 9, 2010

BEIJING — The arrests on Thursday of three men in Norway and Germany accused of orchestrating a terrorist bomb plot seemed like another routine raid by a Western government in the continuing campaign against groups linked to Al Qaeda. But one detail stuck out: Norwegian officials said one of the men was a Chinese Uighur, and all three supposedly belonged to a group that advocates separatism in western China.

If the Norwegian officials are right, the bomb plot was a rare instance in which the group, the Turkestan Islamic Party, had tried to carry out an attack in the West that was unrelated to its goal of gaining independence for the restive region of Xinjiang, in China’s hinterlands.

Terrorism experts say the plot in Norway indicates that Al Qaeda and the few members of the Turkestan Islamic Party, or TIP, who trained in the tribal areas of Pakistan see some mutual benefit in cooperating.

The killing of a prominent Chinese Muslim separatist linked to al Qaeda in Pakistan last month has likely given China “a significant success in its campaign against Islamic separatists”, a senior Pakistani security official told CBS News Monday night.

Abdul Haq al-Turkistani, who led a Chinese Muslim militant group called Turkistan Islamic Party, or TIP, was confirmed to have been killed in a U.S. drone strike on Feb. 15, according to Pakistani security officials who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity.
