Disney is under fire for shooting its new film Mulan in parts of China where the government is accused of serious human rights abuses.

The public security bureau in Turpan is tasked with running China’s “Re-education” camps where Uighurs are held in detention, China expert Adrian Zenz told the BBC. The “Publicity department” named by Disney is responsible for producing state propaganda in the region, he adds.

Activist Shawn Zhang also criticised the company, writing “How many thousands of Uighur were put into camps by Turpan Bureau of Public Security when filming Mulan there?”.
