Former U.S. military contractor Erik Prince had “no knowledge or involvement” in a preliminary memorandum signed by a Hong Kong-listed company to build a training base in China’s far western region of Xinjiang, his spokesman said on Friday.

Xinjiang is a major part of China’s Belt and Road infrastructure network but the region has faced attacks blamed on members of the Muslim ethnic Uighur minority. Beijing has responded with a security clampdown condemned by rights groups and Western governments.

Frontier Services Group (FSG), a Hong Kong-listed company founded by Prince, said in a Chinese-language statement posted on its website on Jan. 22 that it had signed a deal to build a training centre in southern Xinjiang.

Reuters reported on the statement on Thursday.

A Prince spokesman told Reuters on Friday that Prince had “no knowledge or involvement whatsoever with this preliminary memorandum regarding the company’s activity in Xinjiang.”
Will the Administration censure and sanction the company and Erik Prince over this?

Of course it won't.

DeVos is Prince's biological sister, not his sister-in-law.

DeVos is Prince's biological sister, not his sister-in-law.

My mistake - her husband used to be more famous than her, when he ran for Governor of Michigan, and he is Prince’s brother-in-law.
