An important member of the French Council of the State wrote to the president of the French Falun Dafa Association to express his support for the freedom of Falun Gong practitioners to practice after learning of Jiang regime's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners from a friend. Following is a translation of his letter.
Council of the State
Paris, January 22nd 2002-02-03
Marcelle Roux let me know of the persecution which the Falun Gong practitioners are subjected to by the Chinese authorities.
I was not able to join the demonstrations that you have recently been holding in front of the Chinese embassies and consulates in Paris and around the entire world, but I make my most heartfelt wish that the authorities renounce their attempt to block your freedom to practice, in which they have been undertaking methods that are contrary to human rights and to the international obligations that they are bound by.
Mr. President, please accept all my best wishes.
