NEW YORK  (TNS) — China poses an increasingly dire threat to the international human rights system, Human Rights Watch said in its annual report released on Tuesday.

The Chinese government under President Xi Jinping “has constructed an Orwellian high-tech surveillance state and a sophisticated internet censorship system to monitor and suppress public criticism,” HRW director Kenneth Roth said in the report.

“Abroad, it uses its growing economic clout to silence critics and to carry out the most intense attack on the global system for enforcing human rights since that system began to emerge in the mid-20th century,” he added.
