World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong: Greetings to you.
We are shocked to know that our friend, Ms. Lin Wenrong, has been detained in Wuhan since January 29, 2003. The only reason for her detention is that she practices Falun Gong and wants to be a good person. Ms. Lin Wenrong, 35, graduate of the Academy of Music in Wuhan, came to Germany to pursue further studies in April 2002. In January, she went back to Wuhan to reunite with her family and relatives during the Spring Festival. She was due back to Germany on February 17, 2003. When she did not return on that day, her housemates became concerned. According to the information from her friends, Lin Wenrong was unlawfully arrested by the local police upon her arrival at Wuhan and has been detained until now. So far no one knows her whereabouts. News leaking from Wuhan reveals that the Falun Gong Control Office in Wuhan, also called the "610 Office," will decide how to deal with the case of Lin Wenrong in the near future.
News leaking from Wuhan tells us that the Political-Legal Committee of Wuhan City and the Public Security Bureau have released an official document, asking security forces to register the names of all those who practice or have practiced Falun Gong in the past. Everyone is supposedly required to write a "repentance letter," or will be subjected to mental "re-education." The arrest of Lin Wenrong is closely related to this situation. According to the analysis of observers, the renewed arrests of practitioners in Wuhan are associated with the upcoming meetings in Beijing, the National People's Congress and The Chinese People's Political Consultation Conference. Since July 20, 1999, the Falun Gong Control Office also called the "610 Office" and the public security system have intensified their persecution of Falun Gong members whenever there are sensitive occasions, such as April 25, May 13, July 20, any festivals, international meetings, National People's Congress, or the 16th Party Congress.
There is not much time left to rescue Ms. Lin Wenrong. In addition, the renewed arrests of practitioners in Wuhan are victimizing many people and causing serious damage. As Lin Wenrong's friends and as Falun Gong practitioners in Germany, we are urgently calling on you to investigate where Lin Wenrong is detained and find the leaders and criminals involved in this case. We are appealing to you to investigate the officials in the Wuhan City Political-Legal Committee and the Public Security Bureau who are responsible for the renewed arrests of practitioners in Wuhan. We call for the unconditional and immediate release of Ms. Lin Wenrong and other imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners and for an immediate end to the persecution. In the meantime, the evildoers should be sent for trial.
Because of Jiang's evil policy to conduct a genocidal campaign against Falun Gong, in the past three years Falun Gong practitioners in Wuhan have also been subjected to murder, torture and brutality. The following are the Falun Gong practitioners in Wuhan who have been tortured to death: Cai Mingtao (27), Pen Min (30), Lee Yinghsiu (52), Peng Shunan (53), Fu Xiaoyun (53), Liu Qunying (42), Tian Baozhen (42), Lee Zhangjun (33), and Wang Haoyun. In view of this holocaust that is happening in China, we are urgently calling on you to investigate those involved in the torturing and murdering of Falun Gong practitioners in Wuhan, such as their commanders, criminals and responsible units. We hope that those who have committed crimes against Falun Gong will be put on trial. These criminals have committed murder, torture, genocide and crimes against humanity. Chao Chihfei, Hupei Provincial Police Department Supervisor, has committed human rights abuses to the extent of violations of International Law like torture, murder, and crimes against humanity. Chao Chihfei was charged with murdering a Falun Gong practitioner in Hupei, Peng Min, and his mother, Lee Yinghsiu. On December 21, 2001, a judge in a United States District Court found him guilty as charged and Chao was ordered to pay US $50,000,000.
We suggest "The World Organization" investigates the following units and individuals:
Political-Legal Committee of Wuhan City
Wuhan Municipal Party Committee
"610 Office" in Wuhan City
Public Security Bureau in Wuhan City
