VOA: Martial Bachoffner, a 34-year old French computer engineer from Montreal, was arrested by Chinese police and deported after unfurling a banner to support Falun Gong. He returned to Canada on May 17, 2002, receiving a warm welcome. Martial said he told the police that the persecution of Falun Gong was the same as the persecution of Jews by the Nazi Regime. His actions were legitimate because China has signed the Human Rights Conventions of the United Nations.
