Chinese surveillance camera maker Hikvision is the latest company in that country to face the threat of US sanctions, with a report saying the action would be taken on the alleged grounds of enabling human rights abuses.

the FinancialTimes reported that the United States had not yet made a final decision on whether or not to apply the sanctions, as Hikvision’s cameras are sold in 180 countries, including the United States.

Currently, the United States has implemented sanctions against a number of Chinese companies, the best known of which is telecommunications equipment supplier Huawei Technologies.

Washington has raised the specter of sanctions against Hikvision as long as two years agobut at the time, it was under the accusation that the company was owned or controlled by the Chinese military.

Hikvision was one of 20 companies on the list targeted by the United States at the time, with China Mobile Communications Group, China Telecommunications Corporation and Aviation Industry Corporation of China also on the same list.

The current action planned against Hikvision is based on allegations that the Chinese firm is helping Beijing violate the human rights of Uyghurs, a minority group concentrated in Xinjiang province.

Hikvision’s top five markets are the United States, Vietnam, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Brazil, according to the FT report.

Hikvision has no media contact on its Australian website. A request for comment has been sent to the only email address provided.
