Korea: Practitioners Gather in Front of the Chinese Embassy and Condemn the Murder of Gao Rongrong
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Gao Rongrong was tortured to death, news of which has shocked the world. On the morning of June 24, 2005, Korean practitioners held a press conference in front of the Chinese Embassy and strongly condemned the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) atrocity. They called for an end to the persecution and for bringing the murderers to justice. Practitioners also called on Chinese diplomats in embassies and consulates to denounce the CCP and to stop being accomplice to the brutal persecution.
Ms. Gao Rongrong, an accountant at the Luxun Fine Arts College in Shenyang City, was abducted from her home by local police on June 22, 2003, and taken to Longshan Forced Labor Camp. On May 7, 2004, she was shocked with electric batons for 6 hours and her face was grossly disfigured.
Ms. Gao was successfully rescued by Falun Gong practitioners in October 2004. Photographs of her disfigured face were publicized widely to expose the brutal persecution. The Public Security Department labeled Ms. Gao's escape as the "Number 26 Case." At this point, 610 Office head Luo Gan personally took charge of the ongoing persecution plan. Instructed by Luo Gan, the Liaoning Province CCP Political Judiciary Committee, the Procuratorate, the Department of Justice and the Police Department collectively concealed information about Ms. Gao Rongrong's case. Those practitioners thought to have been involved in her rescue were rounded up and cruelly tortured. Gao Rongrong was unfortunately rearrested in March 2005, and detained until she died as a result of further persecution. On June 16, 2005, Ms. Gao died in the emergency room of China Medical University Hospital of complications stemming from torture and abuse in custody following nearly two years of incarceration, brainwashing attempts, and torture for her beliefs.
Recently, three former CCP officials who have defected to Australia exposed inside details of the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong. Their revelations have astounded the world and brought the attention of the international community. Ms. Gao's death further exposes the CCP's brutal persecution of Falun Gong.
