Falun Gong Practitioners in Malaysia Call for Singapore to Stop Assisting CCP with Persecution (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) In response to the recent false charges against Falun Gong practitioners and denied work permits and entry permits in Singapore, Falun Gong practitioners in Malaysia submitted a letter to the High Commission of Singapore in Kuala Lumpur on June 10, 2010, calling for the Singapore government to stop assisting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with its persecution of Falun Gong.

Falun Gong practitioners went to the High Commission of Singapore at 10:30 a.m. Falun Gong spokesperson Wu Wenqiang represented other practitioners to submit the letter. Walter Chia, the First Secretary of the High Commission of Singapore in Kuala Lumpur, came out to meet Falun Gong practitioners.
Mr. Wu expressed Malaysian Falun Gong practitioners' wish. They hope Singapore, as an international trade center, won't yield to the CCP's pressure or follow the CCP in its suppression of Falun Gong. The world is watching. They hope Singapore won't destroy its own reputation by assisting the CCP.
Mr. Chia accepted the letter and materials about Falun Gong. He said he would send the information back to Singapore. Reporters of local media attended the letter submission.
Falun Gong practitioners state in the letter that the international community has been raising its voice of justice calling for the CCP to end its eleven-year persecution of Falun Gong. They offered as examples, the Spanish court's indictment of Jiang Zemin and other top CCP officials for genocide and torture; and the U.S. House Resolution 605 that calls upon the Chinese regime "to immediately cease and desist from its campaign to persecute, intimidate, imprison, and torture Falun Gong practitioners."
Malaysian Falun Gong practitioners are deeply concerned over the series of incidents in Singapore and feel regret over what the Singapore government has done. They sternly call on the Singapore government to cancel all the groundless charges against Falun Gong practitioners immediately and safeguard Falun Gong practitioners' rights. They hope the Singapore government will choose a bright future for its people by standing with the countries and people of justice in the world to call for the end of the CCP's persecution.
The Singapore police arrested five Falun Gong practitioners at the Esplanade Park on the morning of October 5, 2009, handcuffed the practitioners and took them to the Central Police Station, where they were detained and interrogated. Their passports were confiscated and haven't been returned. On May 6, 2010, the police charged practitioners who distributed factual information about the persecution on the streets and at tourists attractions with "vandalizing public property," etc. In addition, two Chinese Falun Gong practitioners living in Singapore were denied work permit renewals and entry permits for no apparent reason.
The Singapore government brought six groundless lawsuits against Falun Gong practitioners from 2001 to 2006.
