More UK MPs Support the Trial of Jiang for his Crimes against Falun Gong Practitioners

In October 2002 and August 2003, U.S. and Belgian Falun Gong practitioners filed lawsuits against the Chinese dictator who orchestrated the persecution of peaceful Falun Gong practitioners. UK practitioners have informed their parliamentary representatives about these important events. Here are some of the replies:

Recently, Dr Rudi Vis MP wrote to a practitioner: “Thank you for your letter of 11th July concerning the persecution of Falun Gong especially by the ex-communist leader Jiang Zemin. I was already familiar with the crimes and with the proposed lawsuits but it is always good to receive reminders of the crimes committed. I entirely agree with the content of your letter.”

The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, Charles Kennedy, wrote “Thank you very much for your letter regarding your concerns about Jiang Zemin. I really do appreciate you taking the time to write to me and was very interested to read your letter. I would like to assure you that my colleagues and I in the Liberal Democrats take your concerns and suggestions very seriously and I have made a note of your comments and will bear in mind in future policy discussions. Thank you once again for writing and best wishes.”

Two further prominent Liberal Democratic MPs wrote to practitioners. One of them said in his letter: “Persecution of Falun Gong practitioners does seem to be an act that would be unwarranted in our society. I agree with you that people being tortured to death for adherence to Falun Gong is unacceptable. Anybody who commits such acts should be brought to justice in the correct way and tried under international law.”

John Thurso MP said in his letter, “It was very kind of you to write as you did on the 11th July about the continuing persecution of those practicing Falun Gong in China. It is an issue which I have recently raised with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and I am most grateful for the information you have provided.

A prominent conservative MP said in his letter “Thank you for … letting me know of your strong concern about the situation in China with regards to the Falun Gong. I will of course bear very much in mind the issue you raise in my discussions with colleagues here and it was kind of you to keep me informed of developments”

A Welsh MP wrote to a practitioner “I am wholly supportive of your campaign. Please keep me informed of all future development pertaining to the case.”

A lady MP in the south of England said in her letter “Thank you for recent letter. The plight of the Falun Gong has been brought to the attention of parliament on many occasions and I know that this is one of many issues that will be raised by the Prime Minister in his visit to China.”
