MEP Raises Questions about Human Rights Lawyer Imprisoned for Speaking out for Falun Gong

Cristiana Moscardini is an Italian politician and Member of the European Parliament for North-West with the Alleanza Nazionale, Co-president of the Union for a Europe of Nations and sits on the European Parliament's Committee on International Trade. Ms. Moscardini recently questioned the European Parliament regarding the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) verdict against renowned Chinese human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng and the regime’s atrocities of harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners. Here is a transcript of the question:

A court in Beijing recently found lawyer Gao Zhisheng guilty of subversion. Gao is an active human rights attorney. As we can imagine, the Chinese regime sentenced Mr. Gao because he defended Christian members of unofficial churches and practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual movement. His two lawyers were neither allowed to enter the court nor meet their client. Consequently, they cannot confirm whether Gao pleaded guilty as the regime claimed.

1) Can the committee request the Chinese authorities to protect the safety of human rights activists?
2) We have “normal” trading with such countries. How long can we tolerate their violation against human rights?
3) Can we verify that China is the largest country for organ trafficking. Most of these organs come from “Gulag” (concentration camps) where political prisoners, Falun Gong practitioners and Roman Catholics are being detained.
