On December 14th, another three Falun Gong practitioners were arrested by Thai police in Pattay while the practitioners were distributing leaflets exposing the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners’ human rights in China.

In the open letter to the Thai Ambassador to Italy, the Italian Falun Gong Association urges the Thai government not to bow to the pressure from the CCP’s evil regime and act as an accomplice in the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong.
