(People's Daily Online)    17:02, May 20, 2016

The Washington D.C.-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has provided a total of $96.52 million to at least 103 Chinese groups and organizations involved in “democracy or human rights,” Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, of the $96.52 million, $6.25 million went to groups affiliated with the Tibet issue and $5.56 to groups related to the Uighur issue. The World Uyghur Congress, a separatist group, also received funding.

The report said that NED provides about 1,200 individual donations to non-governmental organizations around the world. It is registered as a non-profit organization, but most of its funding comes from the U.S. government.

China adopted a new law regulating overseas NGOs activies on Chinese mainland on April 28. Ren Yangli, a scholar from Beijing Normal University, said on Thursday that this law will allow more NGOs to enter China lawfully, while it also enables China to punish those who enter unlawfully with the intention of overthrowing sovereignty and disturbing the peace.
