Indonesia: Human Rights Monitor in Jakarta Writes to President of Indonesia to Condemn the CCP's Brutal Persecution of Falun Gong

Dear Sir,

Imparsial, the Indonesian Human Rights Monitor, has received information from the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong that the Chinese Government has arrested, detained, tortured and murdered Falun Gong practitioners in China in a brutal and widespread, systematic manner.

By reference to the report, the Chinese Government specifically has practised the following:

  1. Founded concentration camps and prisons to detain Falun Gong practitioners. The practitioners who are arrested are at high risk of torture and are sometimes even murdered by the policemen. Instituted a special state force with instructions to specifically use violence to take away the human rights of Falun Gong practitioners. Those special state forces include the 610 Office, Law and Politics Committee, Court, State Security, Public Security, Municipal and security officers.

  2. Made use of Hospitals and mental hospitals as places to detain Falun Gong practitioners. There is strong indication that those places are used as sites to do illegal organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners;

  3. Founded torture and brainwashing centres.

Those criminal acts are clearly a cruel violation of human rights, which oppose the Universal Declaration of Human Right, the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights, and the Anti-Torture Convention.

To carry out Indonesia's duty as a member of the United Nations, to respect human rights as declared in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and also as a country that has ratified the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights and the Anti Torture Convention, Imparsial urges the President of the Republic of Indonesia to convey strong objections to the Chinese government with regards to the violent suppression of Chinese Falun Gong practitioners' human rights in China. We urge the president to call upon the Chinese government to stop their violent persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and demand to bring to justice the people who are responsible for the cruel violence against human rights.

Thus this is our appeal. We appreciate your attention and cooperation.

Our regards,

Poengky Indarti, S.H., LL.M
