Appeal from Prison by Dafa Practitioner Liu Qingtao

May 26, 2002 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Liu Qingtao is being illegally imprisoned in a detention center in a large city in northern China. Because he firmly believes in Falun Dafa and has clarified the facts of the persecution, he has been denied his personal freedom and the freedom of speech by Jiang's regime.

Liu Qingtao was arrested at Beijing Railway Station on October 28, 1999. He was held without trial until the beginning of 2002, when he was finally brought to court. Liu Qingtao waited twenty months for an appeal. The only reason the court finally decided to hear his case or his appeal is because he had gone on several hunger strikes. Otherwise, he might have been held without trial indefinitely. He was not given the name of the person in charge of his case once he was allowed a trial. The prosecutors asked the same question of Liu at the first and second trial: "Do you still practice Falun Gong?" Liu Qingtao's attitude remained firm: "Falun Dafa is entirely good! I have done nothing wrong!"

Liu Qingtao wants to appeal to the International Human Rights Commission by posting the facts of his case on the Clearwisdom website.

He has also requested that the International Human Rights Commission pay attention to the human rights of Falun Gong practitioners in Mainland China. At the time of the United Nations Human Rights Conference, there were still many Dafa practitioners being kidnapped in China. They are still going on hunger strikes to protest the abuses of Jiang's dictatorship and to call attention to the persecution of people who cultivate "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." In jails, forced labor camps and detention centers, there are still many innocent Dafa practitioners who are suffering. Kind-hearted people, organizations and associations around the world, please extend your support. Please help stop the trampling of human rights by Jiang's regime.
