Thoughts on Bo Xilai's Name Being Removed from the List to Visit Canada

Prior to Hu Jintao's visit to Canada, sources said that the Chinese Minister of Commerce, Bo Xilai, would accompany Hu to Canada. But when the Chinese delegation arrived in Toronto, Bo Xilai was not one of the delegation.

Records indicate that when Bo was the mayor and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Secretary of the City of Dalian, and when he was Governor of Liaoning Province, Liaoning was one of the worst provinces with regard to the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police put 45 high-ranking officials who participated in the persecution of Falun Gong, including Bo Xilai, on a list to be monitored. These officials may be denied entry into Canada, expelled, or criminally charged.

On August 26th, Falun Gong practitioners from Canada appealed to the Canadian government to ban Chinese Minister of Commerce Bo Xilai, who has been charged for crimes against humanity for his involvement in the persecution of Falun Gong, from entering Canada. On September 7th, one day before Hu Jintao's visit to Canada, acclaimed Ottawa human rights attorney Lawrence Greenspan submitted a lawsuit to the Ontario High Court, charging Bo Xilai with the crime of torture and requesting that Bo compensate the plaintiffs for the damages.

Before Hu's Canadian visit, over 100,000 Canadians signed a joint letter to Prime Minister Martin, asking Martin urge Hu to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. The Canadian society expressed great interest in the Falun Gong issue. An editorial from the Ottawa Citizen on September 9th said that Martin should bring up the issue of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners that is currently happening in China.

Under great pressure from the public, Bo Xilai disappeared from the list of officials visiting Canada. On the morning of September 9th, at a joint press conference between the Canadian and Chinese governments, Canadian Prime Minister Martin said he discussed human rights, including the persecution of Falun Gong, during the meeting with Hu. This proved that Chinese Communist Party's attempt to fool and silence the international community on the Falun Gong issue is failing.

Media in China are still touting Bo Xilai to deceive those who don't know the truth. However, it is now an undeniable fact that his name was removed from the delegation to visit Canada. Outside of China, where the truth is more widely known, everyone would feel insulted to be accompanied by a person with such a terrible record. More importantly, the vast majority of countries that value freedom and respect spiritual faith will not embrace a person who has committed human rights violations. Bo has already been sued in the United Kingdom, Poland, Romania, Russia, the United States, Peru, and Chile. The moment he steps outside of China, he is faced with the risk of being expelled back to China, arrested, or even tried in court.

Those that actively participate in the persecution of Falun Gong believe that their power is strong, or that the outside world doesn't know what evil deeds they've done, so that they can shirk the responsibilities of the persecution. However, the fact that Bo Xilai couldn't come to North America to visit, and that the Canadian Prime Minister openly raised the issue of Falun Gong to the Chinese government, should send an alarm to the CCP officials who believe that their power is endless, the police, and the public who are still unclear. They need to cease persecuting the innocent and violating the principles of heaven. Otherwise, they will eventually have to pay for all they've done.

In March 2003, Fawanghuihui, a website that monitors the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, submitted to the United Nations a list of over 10,000 officials from the 610 Office*, police, and other people involved in the persecution. If these people leave China, they may be sued at any time. In January 2004, 45 CCP officials, 610 leaders, government officials, and labour camp staff were placed on a list to be monitored by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In March 2004, the Friends of Falun Gong and the International Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong submitted to the United States government a list of 102 top perpetrators of the persecution including Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing, Zhou Yongkang, Li Lanqing, and Wang Maolin. The organisations requested that the US government ban these people from entering the United States. Immigration laws in the United States stipulate that if a foreign government official has participated in serious violation of religious freedom in the last two years, the officials and their families cannot enter the United States. *The 610 office is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.

Karmic retribution from heaven is bound to happen. Thanks to the long-term peaceful appeals and truth-clarification by Falun Gong practitioners, the power of justice in the international community is being solidified. It can be forecast that there will be broad based, deep, and systematic investigation related to all crimes, individuals, and organisations who participated in the persecution against Falun Gong. Even today, former members of the Nazi Party are being tracked down and arrested. Those who commit crimes against innocent Falun Gong practitioners will meet with the same result. No matter how far they travel, sooner or later, the persecutors will be found and investigated, unless they stop what they are doing immediately and try to make up for the damage they've caused. All those that participate in the persecution should see the situation clearly, stop helping to commit evil acts, and use this precious time to make up for the losses.
