Letter from Swedish Citizens to the UK Secretary of State for the Home Office
RT Hon David Blunkett MP
Secretary of State for the Home Department
Home Office for the UK
It was with great shock and astonishment that I learnt that Mrs. Lili Lin, 28, from Manchester was treated so harshly and was denied her basic rights when she was taken away for deportation to China, on 26th of February 2003.
Mrs. Lili Lin has married and settled in the UK. She has been actively volunteering in Falun Gong activities in front of the Chinese embassy and consulates and she has also been introducing the self-improvement method to people in Liverpool, where she moved after her marriage.
Mrs. Lili Lin is a genuine Falun Gong practitioner and the life of both her and her unborn baby are at immediate risk if she is sent back to China. Falun Gong-practitioners have been severely persecuted in China since July 1999, as you all know, merely because they want to be good and healthy people. Please save her life and guard the human rights of the civilized world.
Many international human rights organizations have verified hundreds of cases of Falun Gong practitioners being tortured to death. Daily, horrifying reports flow in about Falun Gong practitioners being harassed, forced to leave their homes, forced to have abortions, brainwashed and killed. Not even young kids or handicapped people are spared under the Jiang Regime. Imagine how the Chinese authorities will treat a young and beautiful woman, who is certainly known to be a Falun Gong practitioner.
We appeal to you: Don't let the UK do such a mistake as to give a helping hand to these atrocities by sending Mrs. Lili Lin back to China.
Please be mindful. We put our full trust in you.
