Spanish Government Grants Political Asylum to Two Falun Gong Practitioners
(Clearwisdom.net) According to a Radio France International (RFI) June 12 report, the Spanish Ministry of Home Affairs granted two Falun Gong practitioners the right of political asylum. Their Chinese passports were expired, but the Chinese Embassy in Spain refused to renew their passports, and asked them to go back to China to renew. Considering that two practitioners risk the danger of being persecuted in China, the Spanish government granted them political asylum.
The two practitioners have been in Spain for five years, and their Chinese passports expired in April.
