China Spied On Qantas 'Falun Gong' Employee
Epoch Times: SYDNEY—A Qantas employee, removed from her job after being deported from China for practising Falun Gong, was likely targeted by Chinese spies, says a representative of Falun Gong in Australia.
Mr. John Deller, spokesman for the New South Wales Falun Dafa Association, said that Falun Gong practitioner Sheridan Genrich, a Qantas flight attendant, was stopped and interrogated before she was searched during a stopover in Beijing.
“They had already targeted her, so they must have known she was a Falun Gong practitioner,” he told The Epoch Times.
“Falun Gong is not illegal in China,” he said. “The Peoples Congress have to pass laws to make something illegal and they haven’t done that on Falun Gong.”
Mr. Deller said that within Chinese law and the Chinese constitution, people in China have the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression.
“It is actually the persecution of Falun Gong which is illegal,” he said.
