Falun Gong will sue Chinese Minister in Auckland

Media Advisory: New Zealand Falun Dafa Association (Falun Gong)

Falun Gong will sue Chinese Minister in Auckland High Court

Falun Gong practitioners in New Zealand are going to sue Bo Xilai in Auckland High Court today. A statement of claim and accompanying documents will be filed at the Auckland High Court, midday, Tuesday, 4th April 2006.

Bo, the Chinese Minister of Commerce who has been sued for genocide in eight countries, plans to accompany Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, to visit New Zealand this week.

Falun Gong practitioners in Australia have also lodged a legal case against Bo Xilai during his visit in Australia. Yesterday, the legal documents were served upon him. Should Bo arrive in New Zealand, he can expect service a legal document upon him here in New Zealand also.

Last week, The New Zealand Falun Dafa Association has written a letter to the Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Justice and Minister of Immigration, calling for Bo Xilai to be banned from entering New Zealand.

Bo was the governor of Liaoning province from 2001 to 2004. During his supervision of Liaoning province, he directed, controlled, supervised, and authorized the campaign of terror and persecution against Falun Gong practitioners in his province. The deaths of 341 Falun Gong practitioners due to torture have been recorded in Liaoning province.

Recently separated sources have revealed that a concentration camp is currently running in SUJIATUN, North-Eastern China, where thousands of Falun Gong Practitioners are illegally detained and their organs are removed to sell to domestic and international buyers. The organs are removed from living Falun Gong practitioners without their consent. This concentration camp was built and operates in Liaoning province, which is the province that was under the supervision of Bo Xilai.

Bo has been sued for torture, crimes against humanity and genocide by surviving Falun Gong practitioners in several countries, including USA, UK, Poland, Peru, Chile, Germany, and most recently Australia.
