The letter is as follows:
Dr. Ivan Langer
Minister of the Interior of the Czech Republic
March 19, 2008
I would also like to join the support for the persecuted practitioners of Falun Gong in China.
Based on your letter, I have understood more about the principles of Falun Gong, how people's behavior should conform to the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance", and I have decided to give my support. Spreading the belief in and principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" will have a tremendous effect on the understanding of the friendship of communities and countries and will induce respect and co-operation.
Therefore, I strongly condemn the atrocities committed by the CCP against Falun Gong practitioners. Freedom of belief is the basis of a free society. Before they take up the burden of being responsible for the freedom of their people, China cannot be taken as a truly developed country based on democracy.
