After hearing testimonies from victims of violent persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), China experts, and representatives from non-government organisations, the Czech Petitions Committee of the Chamber of Deputies passed a resolution calling on the CCP to:
immediately stop the persecution of Falun Gong and to release unconditionally all unjustly detained Falun Gong prisoners.
The hearing was held on June 8, 2021, after the issue garnered attention from a petition to stop the persecution of Falun Gong in China. The petition has collected over 150,000 signatures in the Czech Republic.
Falun Gong practitioners have suffered horrific persecution at the hands of the Chinese regime since July 20, 1999. Today, Falun Gong practitioners have been victims of forced organ harvesting in China since 1999.
