The annual Sino-Deutsch Human Rights and Legal Issues Symposium in Hamburg and the incident of Jiang Renzheng attracted public attention to the current situation of human rights and law in China. Jiang Rewnzheng was deported by the German Government on the assumption that he would be safe back in China. When he returned, he was persecuted by the Chinese Communbist Party. The following report is based on a recording by Tian Yi, special correspondent of Radio Free Asia in Germany.
The annual Sino-Deutsch Human Rights and Legal Issues Symposium started in 1999. This year’s symposium was held at the City Hall and the Chamber of Commerce of Hamburg on June 20th and 21st. For the purposes of protesting against the Chinese Government for the unceasingly brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, and to arouse Germany and other European countries to pay attention to the human rights conditions that show no regard for the law in China, Falun Gong practitioners from northern Germany held a series of activities around this symposium.
As far as the incident of Jiang Renzheng is concerned, it involves legal issues between China and Germany and the conventions of the U.N. human rights and refugees. A Falun Gong practitioner, Miss Jiang Ning said that they recently held a series of activities such as collecting petition signatures for rescuing Jiang Renzheng, protesting against the persecution and appealing for public attention to the human rights abuses in China.
