Norway: Practitioners from Thailand Arrive in Norway

Print

On the afternoon of January the 26th 2006, the eight Falun Gong practitioners who were unreasonably arrested by Thai police bowing to pressure from the Chinese Embassy to Thailand arrived in Norway. They are going to live in this land of freedom.

These eight practitioners staged a protest at the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok on December the 10th 2005, against the incident of Chinese policeman He Xuejian raping two female Falun Gong practitioners. Bowing to the Chinese Embassy’s pressure, they were illegally apprehended and unreasonably beaten by the Thai police. With the concerted efforts by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Norwegian Government, they finally made it to this free country.

Local practitioners welcomed them upon their arrival at a Norwegian airport, along with a banner reading “Falun Gong is Good” and another banner appreciating the Norwegian Government and its people.

They were excited to set foot on this land of freedom; however, they said that although they have regained their freedom, tens of millions of other Falun Gong practitioners are still subjected to persecution and that they will continue to expose the vicious persecution against Falun Gong so as to let more people know the facts.
