(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Liu Deqin. I have worked in Germany since July 2003.

On June 30, 2003, I obtained my visa to go to Germany. When I got the visa mailed from the German Embassy, I found that the mail had been opened.

In July 2003, members of the 610 Office talked to me. The main point was to demand that I become an informant and spy by taking pictures and monitoring the activities of Falun Gong in Germany. I kept silent during the talk, thinking that I would not do those things. I booked an airline ticket and left China as soon as I could.

On July 27, 2003, I arrived safely at Berlin, Germany. When I called home to China several days later, the line did not sound right. After dialing, there was a message like it was phone directory assistance, saying that the number you dialed was not activated. It was confirmed later that my home phone in China was being monitored.

In late August 2003, my cell phone rang at noon one day. The incoming number had a prefix 0086, which is the international dialing code for China. The call was from Zhao, an agent from the Ministry of State Security in China. My wife was the only one who had my German cell phone number. So I asked how she got my number. She said they had ways of finding it and asked me to work for them. I rejected the offer and hung up. After that, I simply hung the phone up when I saw the number. After several unanswered calls, they stopped calling. It might be that I had nothing which they could use to blackmail me. So when I rejected them, they had to give up.

I had kept this incident a secret since I did not accept their request. But now I realize that this is an aspect of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong and should be exposed. The CCP seeks every opportunity to do evil. As long as we have upright hearts, it will be in vain.
