During Luo Gan's visit to Finland in September, a lawsuit was filed against him. The charges were crimes against humanity, genocide and torture for his role in the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners: head of the 610 office, described by human rights advocates as the central control structure for the state terror employed against Falun Gong practitioners in China today. Practitioners in Finland contacted the Finnish government and also Finnish Members of the European Parliament to let them know the details of the lawsuit.

One Finnish Member of European Parliament sent an encouraging reply to local practitioners. The MEP wrote that the methods used by the Chinese government in persecuting Falun Gong since the beginning of the persecution in 1999 have not only received condemnation but worldwide attention. The European Parliament is also aware that the Chinese Communist party was responsible for persecution of belief and human rights.

The MEP wrote that although the situation in China is unchanged, cities around the world are still unable to apply enough pressure on the Chinese government to prevent them from these doing specific things and as a result the murderers who are still persecuting Falun Gong practitioners cannot be brought to justice. Reports have shown that the Chinese government is still persecuting Falun Gong.

The MEP reminded practitioners that action must be taken, that justice will prevail, and that as a result, the persecution of Falun Gong will come to an end. In conclusion, she stated if there was an opportunity for her to do so, that she was willing to help with the lawsuit against Luo Gan.
