“You have to have both views represented”
This story also says this professor’s position is funded by a Chinese non-profit but that must just be a coincidence.

University of Cambridge professor defends China’s human rights abuses
Peter Nolan, a professor at the University of Cambridge, warned his students against criticizing China’s human rights violations against nearly two million Uighurs.
Nolan told students that there is not a “homogenous, correct view of what is happening [to the Uighurs] in Xinjiang,” Open Democracy reported.
“You have to have both views represented,” he said. “Otherwise the college will be perceived as being a campaigning college for … freedom for the Weiwu’ers [Uighurs].”
The comments were made at a private meeting last November, but just reported on this month by Open Democracy, a global investigative journalism organization.
Further, in his recorded comments from the meeting last winter, Nolan compared the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Uighurs to the treatment of minorities in “all countries.”
The professor also accused the U.S. Congress of funneling money to media outlets to report on the Uighur genocide, claiming its main goal is regime change.
Nolan’s position is allegedly funded by the Chong Hau Foundation, a Chinese nonprofit that is controlled by Wen Ruchun, the daughter of former Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabo.
Professor Nolan serves as the director of the Chinese Executive Leadership Programme, which each year brings CEOs from China’s largest firms to the University of Cambridge for a three-week training program, the university’s website states.
Nolan has taught on topics such as economic development, globalization, and the transition of former planned economies, according to the university’s website.
He’s authored a book that argues the idea that China is buying the world is a myth.
