Not sure what to make of this:


A Chinese research team’s study of drug addiction treatments published inScience on 13 April is coming under fire from Human Rights Watch (HRW), the New York City-based advocacy group. This week’s issue of Science contains a letter from the group accusing the Chinese team of not making it clear whether their research subjects were held “without due process” in compulsory treatment centers and subjected to “forced labor.” But a response from the study authors describes their considerable efforts to ensure that the research was conducted in an ethical manner, and bioethicists based in both the United States and China have also defended the Chinese researchers, calling the accusations unfair.
