On behalf of all Turkish Falun Gong practitioners, the Turkish Falun Gong Association recently sent a petition to the Human Rights Investigation Committee of the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TGNA) to expose the Chinese Communist regime’s atrocities against Falun Gong practitioners in over thirty concentration camps. The petition called on the Turkish authorities concerned to help put an end to the cruel persecution and reckless killing of Falun Gong practitioners in China, which has lasted for over seven years.
On April 4th, 2006, Mr. Mehmet Elkatmis, senior member of the TGNA and chairman of the Human Rights Investigation Committee of the TGNA, signed a reply letter in person to explicitly express the Committee’s strong condemnation of the Chinese regime’s atrocities. The following is the translation of the text of the reply letter:
Letter of the Human Rights Investigation Committee of the Turkish Grand National Assembly.
Date: April 4th 2006.
Dear Ms. Goldring and Mr. Kocman of the Falun Gong Association:
With regard to the petition addressed to this Committee, in which you explained that Falun Gong is illegally banned in China and the fact that Falun Gong practitioners are being cruelly tortured and persecuted in China, this Committee has fully reviewed your appeal.
According to the international human rights convention, cruel torture and abuse are absolutely prohibited, and these inhuman deeds are entirely unacceptable. Around the world, no matter where it is, this kind of cruel torture and abuse are crimes against humanity. This Committee therefore strongly condemns the behaviours of cruel torture and abuse against Falun Gong practitioners.
The Human Rights Investigation Committee of the Turkish Grand National Assembly
Member of the Turkish Grand National Assembly in Nevsehir City
