Finland: Bo Xilai Faces Lawsuit before EU-China Summit
(Clearwisdom.net) In the morning of September 8, a representative of the Finland Falun Dafa Association delivered a letter and other related documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Office of the Prime Minister, requesting the Finnish government to ban Bo Xilai from entering the country. Bo is directly responsible for carrying out the persecution of Falun Gong. A press conference was then held to announce that the Association will file a lawsuit against Bo Xilai for torture based on the Finnish criminal code.
Bo was the governor of Liaoning Province before he assumed his current position as Minister of Trade in February 2004. Under his direction, Liaoning is one of the provinces that have been persecuting Falun Gong most severely. For example, during his tenure as governor, he directed more than 10 million dollars to renovate prisons to persecute practitioners. To date, for persecuting Falun Gong, Bo has been sued in more than 10 countries including the U.S., the U.K., Germany, Ireland, Russia, Australia, Korea and Spain.
A practitioner representative told the report: "It is unacceptable that criminals like Bo Xilai who have persecuted so many people are still at large."
The EU-China summit will be held in Finland on September 9. Representatives from Europe includes the Finnish Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, President of the European Parliament and Commissioner for External Relations and the European Neighbourhood Policy. The Chinese delegation reportedly includes Wen Jiabao, Bo Xilai and Li Zhaoxing.
On Tuesday, three MEPs jointly wrote to the Commissioner for External Relations, requesting the EU delegation to discuss with the Chinese delegation regarding the allegations of the Chinese Communist regime's atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.
