Remarks: Sky News host Rita Panahi says it is remarkable China’s gross human rights violations “seem to just be not an issue for the Daniel Andrews government” amid its engagement with communist China over the Belt and Road Initiative. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has been widely criticised for the government’s agreement to the initiative while also neglecting to involve DFAT in the process.

Mr Andrews has now been criticised for refusing to speak out about China’s gross human rights violations against political dissidents and Uighur Muslims.
In parliament Mr Andrews told the opposition leader if he wants to “lead a human rights delegation to China or any other country and then try to do a trade deal at the same time, I wish him luck because I reckon he will need it”.
Sky News host Paul Murray said the premier only claimed “you can’t take the money and fight against human rights” and has instead chosen to take “the fist full of dollars”.
