Editor's note: according to an incomplete estimate based on Clearwisdom documents, more than 90 Falun Gong practitioners living in 19 countries have had their Chinese passports withheld or were denied extensions of or [additional] visas at Chinese consulates and embassies abroad.

This is the overseas extension of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Jiang Zemin group's irrational persecution of Falun Gong, and it is a severe violation of human rights, as well as a violation of international agreements and laws. This article contains a few of those cases that have been translated into English.
