Falun Gong Group Files Lawsuit against Beijing Deputy Mayor
Despite a legislative resolution adopted last week that prohibits known Chinese human rights violators from entering Taiwan, Ji Lin arrived in Taipei yesterday
The Taipei Times - “Having served in several party and government leadership positions in Beijing since 1998, Ji Lin has played either an assisting or leading role in mass arrests of Falun Gong practitioners in the city,” Taiwan Falun Dafa Association chairman Chang Ching-hsi told reporters outside the Taiwan High Prosecutors’ Office.
“In 2008, when he served on the organizing committee of the Beijing Olympics, he launched another wave of mass arrests of Falun Gong practitioners in Beijing in the name of security, which led to the torture and death of a well-known local musician, Yu Zhou,” Chang said.
Ji, who the Falun Gong had said would arrive at 11:55pm, arrived in Taiwan at about 3pm, accompanied by a delegation of more than 200 members for meetings on potential cooperation in business and technology.
