Infinian human rights lobby groups have expressed their desire for the government to condemn the punishments of these crimes as crimes against humanity. Although he wished he were not forced to use this term in relation to a friendly nation, spokesman Yemane Rudnay states that 'the facts must be met head-on.'
'As a human rights lobby, we do not seek to undermine the legal system of the Qing, nor to deny them the right to punish criminals. Each of the ten abominations is indeed based on asocial or criminal behavior of man, and we would be wrong to say that treason should be entirely tolerated. The subject of this is quite logically up to debate, but the death penalty, torture and mutilation are gross violations of the rights of man.'
'We believe these punishments to be degrading and inhumane, capital punishment included. The extensive maiming of criminals, whether through Mo, Yi, Yue, Gong, Zanxing, Zhang, or death, should be considered barbaric. We call on the government of the Imperial Federation to strongly denounce these punishments, as they directly conflict with the way of life in Infiny. Should the government not denounce the cruel and barbaric measures of the Qing, then they will be guilty of hypocrisy, significantly undermining their claims of 'freedom, equality, and tolerance.´'
