Sajid Javid is under pressure to ban work with a blacklisted Chinese genomics firm over concerns it has been used to suppress the country’s Uyghur population.
The potential sanctions would be administered by the U.S. Treasury Department, which publishes a Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list that prohibits American companies or citizens from trading or conducting financial transactions with those listed and freezes assets held in the United States, the Financial Times said, without clarifying which sanctions would be used. If imposed, the sanctions could have dire consequences for the maker of surveillance equipment, which already faces other U.S. restrictions for activities contrary to U.S. foreign policy and national security.
The Department of Health has banned the purchase of cameras made by the Chinese state-backed technology company Hikvision amid allegations it has been used to spy on the country’s Uyghur minority.
