Por semanas, rumors have swirled in Washington about President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry and his opposition to taking concrete action against the Chinese Communist Party’s use of slave labor. Ahora, we may have an answer about his reluctance to take action: según un nuevo informe, Kerry and his wife have at least $ 1 million invested in a Chinese investment group called Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P.
That fact alone raises serious questions as to whether Kerry can negotiate in good faith with Beijing on climate change but it gets worse. According to the report, Hillhouse is a “top shareholder” in a Chinese technology company called YITU Technology, which was blacklisted by the Trump administration in 2019 for being complicit in the surveillance, detention, and repression of Uyghurs and others. En otras palabras, Kerry appears to be profiting from slave labor.
