Jiang Renzheng and his wife Guo Rui are Falun Gong practitioners. Falun Gong is a traditional Chinese qigong practice, which is based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. On March the 7th 2005, Jiang, Guo and their two little ones were deported from Germany to the People’s Republic of China. China, without exception, persecutes all those who practise Falun Gong. Germany refused asylum to this family, because the German authorities did not believe that this family would be in any danger.
On return to China, staff from the Chinese State Security Ministry interrogated Mr. Jiang, asked for information on all German Falun Gong activities and tried hard to have him renounce his belief in Falun Gong. On April the 8th 2005, police arrested Mr. Jiang after one month of continued harassment and intimidation tactics. They then sentenced him to three years forced labour to be served at the Benxi Forced Labour Camp, without legal process or recourse to law.
Jiang and Guo’s parents were taken by surprise about this unprecedented force against their offspring. They cried frequently and could not understand why Jiang, who had not even once breached any laws, rules or regulation, was being treated in such a cruel manner.
We appeal to the German Federal Government for action regarding the immediate release of Mr. Jiang Renzheng. We are also asking that Mr. Jiang Renzheng, his wife and children will be allowed to return to Germany.
