Korea: Practitioner Attacked in Front of Chinese Consulate, Assailant Arrested and Found Guilty

Print

At 10:40 a.m. on June 26th, 2006, a Chinese man, who had come to Korea one week before, violently assaulted a Korean practitioner who was protesting against the persecution of Falun Gong in front of the Chinese Consulate. The female practitioner was protesting alone.

At 12:40 p.m. on the same day, the Seoul South Gate Police Station arrested Cui Hai, a 36-year-old male, on suspicion of violence, damaging people's property, and interfering with others’ business. He tore the practitioner’s banner and some truth-clarification brochures in front of the Chinese Consulate and violently broke practitioner Ms. Zhao’s truth-clarification materials. Ms. Zhao is a 36-year-old lady who was conducting the peaceful protest there.

Ms. Zhao, who held a banner in front of the Chinese Consulate and peacefully protested, said, "A man in his 30's suddenly came forward and tore the banner while cursing. He attempted to tear the flyers in my bag." The banner said, "Bring to Justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang - the culprits for persecuting innocent Falun Gong practitioners." Cui Hai violently pulled Ms. Zhao's shoulder and arms, trying to get her bag. Fortunately, two Pakistani men that were nearby stopped him preventing Ms. Zhao from being attacked more violently. At that point, a police officer passed by. Cui Hai, afraid of being arrested, hid in the Chinese Consulate.

Cui stayed in in the Chinese Consulate for more than two hours and then attempted to confront Falun Gong practitioners. He was arrested by police.

Cui Hai entered Korea on June 19th. He has been to Korea many times previously. A Korean judge ruled that he was guilty on June 27th and fined him.

The Falun Dafa Association of Korea believes that the incident was not accidental, but orchestrated by the CCP.
