Italy: Milan Criminal Court Pronounces Judgment on Chinese Newspaper after it Slandered Falun Gong

Falun Gong practitioners won their case, the plaintiff’s lawyer talks about the verdict
 

On July 6th, 2006, the Milan Criminal Court pronounced judgment on the Chinese newspaper, “European Chinese Paper”, which had slandered Falun Gong and the charge was established. After practitioners won the case, their lawyer Giuseppe Rossodivita made a declaration about the charge, talked about how he looked at the case and the impression he has of Falun Gong, after being the legal representative of the Falun Dafa Association and practitioners in Italy for four years.

The Plaintiff's Lawyer: Giuseppe Rossodivita
He said in his declaration that yesterday, after the full debate in court, the Milan Criminal Court, 3rd Criminal Court Judge Dr. Cernuto had established the charge against the director and reporter of the Chinese newspaper “European Chinese Paper”. The charge is a significant one. This was a successful response to the persecution of the Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP in Italy. I think it’s essential to point out that it is a fact that China caused Falun Gong to lose its rightful legal place in society and its public good name from the start of the persecution and then started their cruel suppression. Also the persecution is still continuing in that country, using such violence and cruel torture.

Luckily, the practitioners in Italy don’t have to endure the horrifying persecution from the Chinese Government, although during the investigations and the debates, the court discovered that the Chinese Embassy was directly controlling the local Chinese media and had conducted a massive dissemination of information against Falun Gong in Italy in 2002.

The Falun Dafa Association in Italy took the action they absolutely had to take to submit such litigation to the court, the case in the Milan Court is the first successful result and there are still other cases in the progress of being heard.
