Chinese Communist Party Embassy Officials in Thailand Hire Drug Addict Vandals
On August 2, opposite the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)
embassy in Thailand, over a dozen men forcibly removed
banners exposing the CCP ‘s persecution of Falun Gong.
This was the fifth incident of it ‘s kind since July
that Thai Falun Gong practitioners have encountered.
Local Falun Gong practitioners said that earlier
on, the perpetrators once confessed that
their bosses are the CCP embassy officials.
They admitted they were hired to hinder
the sit-in protest and truth clarifications
by local Falun Gong practitioners.
Ms. Zhong, who witnessed the
robbery, tells what happened.
Ms. Zhong: “Around 9:30 am, over a dozen
people arrived by car and motorcycle.
They removed all the banners,
took them, and swiftly drove away.
We had only a small group, and
couldn ‘t get the banners back.”
Ms. Zhong has been part of a long-term sit-in
protest opposite the CCP embassy in Thailand.
She says that robbing banners is one of the usual
methods they use to destroy the truth clarification
efforts of local Falun Gong practitioners.
Another witness says that the
perpetrators did not hide their identity.
Their uniform showed that they were
members of a local Chinese organization.
Ms. Huang, Falun Gong practitioner:
“They pushed me to the ground twice.
This was when I was trying
to snatch the banners back.”
Ms. Zhong: “They were from the Brotherhood Hall,
and were all dressed in uniforms of security guards.
The uniform was printed with their address.”
Local Falun Gong practitioners tracked the address.
At the Brotherhood Hall, other members revealed
the peoples identities and motives for the incident.
Ms. Zhong: “Later we went to their meeting venue.
Some members told us that those perpetrators
are punks, who were hired to rob the banners.”
Ms. Huang: “We were also told that
most of these punks are drug addicts.”
July 20 this year marked the 14th commemoration
of the persecution of Falun Gong beginning in China.
At a commemorative event, the perpetrators from the
Brotherhood Hall also arrived at the scene to sabotage it.
Falun Gong practitioners immediately called the
police and held those who were grabbing the banners.
Questioned by local police and Falun Gong practitioners,
the perpetrators confessed who was behind the scenes.
Ms. Zhong: “On July 20, Ms. Lin
asked them who was their boss.
The rogue said that it ‘s the CCP, people from the
embassy. But he didn ‘ t tell who that person is. ”
Reports from the World Organization to Investigate the
Persecution of Falun Gong indicate similar incidents
at CCP embassies and consulates since July 1999,
when the CCP began persecuting Falun Gong.
There have been proactive efforts to sabotage
overseas Falun Gong practitioners efforts
to clarify the truth of what is happening.
For over a decade, the CCP embassy in Thailand
has hired people to undertake vandalism, without fail.
They have stolen or slashed banners, as well as
threatened Falun Gong practitioners in sit-in protest.
They have also physically attacked and
hit Falun Gong practitioners using a car.
As more people come to know the truth about
Falun Gong, fewer groups or organizations are
willing to do evil things on behalf of the CCP.
Ms. Huang: “At first, the CCP commanded the
Thai police to capture the Falun Gong practitioners.
Later, the trick didn ‘t work, so they ‘ve hired
these punks to continue their evildoing.
And these people just care about money.”
According to the Thai Falun Gong practitioners,
the local CCP embassy has vigorously carried
out the persecution policies from Beijing.
The main method used by the CCP embassy
officials include pressuring the Thai government.
They also incite hatred among local Chinese people.
However, these evil deeds have never prevented
Falun Gong practitioners from clarifying the truth.
Rather, the CCP ‘s repeated vandalism has aroused
strong discontent among the local people who witness it.
They have openly expressed their support
and sympathy for Falun Gong practitioners.
Ms. Huang: “Now the truth about Falun Gong
has spread to the world via different media.
Also, Falun Gong practitioners have kept on
telling the truth to the Thai government.
So basically, the Thai police isn ‘t likely
to follow the CCP embassy ‘s request.”
Currently, after receiving calls from Falun Gong
practitioners, the Thai police have quickly
arrived on the scene to stop the perpetrators.
The Thai police have said that this is the best effort that
they could make, under the huge pressure from the CCP.
