A Petition from the International Society for Human Rights Calls for Immediate Action to Rescue Jiang Renzheng

The following is the translated text of a petition from Germany-based human rights organisation International Society for Human Rights.

Jiang Renzheng practises Falun Gong. On March 7th 2005, he, his wife and their two children were deported to the People’s Republic of China (PRC). In China, Falun Gong practitioners suffer brutal persecution. Germany refused him asylum because Germany’s public authorities saw no danger for Falun Gong practitioners deported to China.

On April 9th 2005, Mr. Renzheng was sentenced without trial to three years of forced labour, to be served in a forced labour camp in Benxi City. He was sentenced because he practises Falun Gong and he was charged with “Endangering public security.”

Since July 20th 1999, the day when the PRC began the persecution of Falun Gong, more than 100,000 people have been detained. As of April 2005, we are aware of 1,583 verifiable deaths due to torture while held in China’s forced labour camps, police stations and psychiatric clinics.

The International Society for Human Right (ISHR) demands the immediate release of Jiang Renzheng.

My personal signature to this petition appeals for the immediate and unconditional release of Mr. Jiang Renzheng, the speedy repatriation of the entire family to Germany, for freedom of conscience to become the norm in the People’s Republic of China and for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong.
