Many German MPs Express their Concern about the Persecution of Falun Gong

In the later part of February and early March, 2006, another two German MPs replied to practitioners to express their concern about the persecution of Falun Gong.

It was said in a letter from MP Alois Karl on February 24th, “I personally think that it is no doubt to protect general human rights. Moreover, I think Germany has a responsibility to protect human rights.”

He suggested Falun Gong practitioners to list the details of the persecution. “According to my experiences, the detailed personal cases are extremely important. Do not underestimate the efforts of providing detailed description of every persecution instance. The German government, I and my colleagues would talk to those representatives of related countries. If it’s necessary, we could give direct help to the victims. ”

Thomas Silberhorn, another MP, replied on March 6th, “The human rights group and the Humanitarianism aid group of the Christian Democratic Union and Christian Social Union are very concerned about the persecution of Falun Gong. They’ve expressed their condemnation of these. Not only the German Federal Parliament passed a resolution condemning them, but also consultations are on-going through the written or oral form between Germany and China.”

Silberhorn also said to the Falun Gong practitioners that 'we always keep in touch with the representatives of Falun Gong in Germany. We’ll take every chance to negotiate with China on this topic whenever we can make contact, till the very basic human rights are granted in China'.
