On April 29, 2005, representatives of Taiwan Falun Dafa Association went to the Singapore Trade Office in Taipei to deliver a letter protesting against Singapore Court's unfair verdict against two Falun Gong practitioners and requested an immediate release of the two practitioners. The letter was delivered to the Singapore Trade Office at 3:30 p.m. The assistant representative Mr. Chen said that the letter will be sent to the Singapore government by the quickest express mail.
Mr. Wu Hui-lin represented the Taiwan Falun Dafa Association to deliver an appeal letter. Assistant representative of the Singapore Trade Office in Taipei came out to meet with Mr. Wu and said that he was aware that Falun Gong practitioners in Taiwan has always been peaceful and sensible and that he would convey Taiwanese Falun Gong practitioners' request to the Singapore government at the most rapid speed. The appeal ended peacefully.
Dr. Wang Yuyi, spokesperson of Falun Dafa Association in Singapore said during a media interview that governments and people from many countries throughout the world expressed their sympathy toward the persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. Unfortunately, Singapore becomes the only country besides China where Falun Gong practitioners are not only charged but also imprisoned. It is really regretful.
Mr. Chang Ching-hsi, president of Taiwan Falun Dafa Association said that in Singapore law, the article "Assembly without a permit" was historically used to deal with a political party for the purpose of preventing the party from gathering together and making troubles. Falun Gong practitioners practise exercises in public parks and expose the truth about the persecution by passing out various materials to the public. They have been always peaceful and serene and never caused any troubles. It is just like that many people today practise Qigong or Taiji in public parks. Could one consider that as illegal assembly?
In Singapore, it is even legal to sell pornographic video CDs. Why couldn't one possess and distribute these Falun Gong video CDs which did not violate any copyrights and contained no unhealthy contents (for instance, one of the VCDs was entitled, "False Fire" which expose the staged Tiananmen Square Self-immolation incident in 2001 won an honorary award at the 51st Columbia International Film Festival)?
In response to the court verdict, Taiwan Falun Dafa practitioners expressed that such a decision evidently indicated that Singapore authorities, under pressure from the Chinese communist regime, intervened with its judicial system and thus actually participated in the suppression of Falun Gong. Many countries throughout the world have realised the crimes committed by the Chinese communist regime in violating human rights. We hope the Singapore authorities will be able to see the truth for themselves, and that they immediately correct their mistakes and stop assisting the CCP to persecute Falun Gong.
