Hotel in China fined for breaking Muslim guest ban
October 10, 201725
Authorities in the southern province of Guangdong have fined the manager of a hotel in the border city of Shenzhen for breaking a ban on ethnic minority Uyghur guests.
“According to rules set by the local police station, we had to pay a fine for accepting a guest from Xinjiang,” the employee said, in a euphemistic reference to the mostly Muslim, Turkic-speaking Uyghur ethnic group.
An employee in a sauna in Shenzhen’s Futian district said all service businesses had been required to demand IDs from customers since late September, as part of new security regulations.
Meat vendors at markets in the county, and in neighboring counties in the prefecture, are also gradually having their knives and choppers stamped with identifying codes, according to a post on the local police department’s official WeChat account.
