SYDNEY – On June 4, in Martin Square in central Sydney, at an activity commemorating the 16th anniversary for the “1989 Tiananmen Democratic Movement,” the top secretary of the Chinese Consulate in Sydney, Australia, Chen Yonglin, unexpectedly announced his resignation from the Chinese Communist Party. This comes at a time when an “International Judicial Committee for Bringing the Chinese Communist Party to Trial” is in the process of being established.
Chen expressed his resolution for quitting the CCP to the media. “My main job was to carry out the Chinese government’s policy, to persecute Falun Gong practitioners in New South Wales, and to keep their activities under surveillance, including hiring people to collect information regarding the whereabouts of Falun Gong practitioners’ activities. The CCP’s policy towards Falun Gong in Sydney is as follows: to sharply oppose, to deliberatly attack, to strive for support (of the Australian government), and to win sympathy (of the public in Australia).”
At present, consulate security personnel are seeking Chento to apprehend him.
The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) is aware that the CCP authorities are using one-quarter of China’s financial resources in the persecution of Falun Gong. A great deal of these resources are used overseas. The ambassadors from the Chinese Embassies and the diplomatic officials of Chinese Consulates in every country are employed to spread propaganda to create ill-sentiment in China, to bribe overseas Chinese organizations, and to carry out the CCP’s policy of persecution using all kinds of means.
Persecuting Falun Gong has become the CCP’s diplomatic officials daily job. They collect overseas Falun Gong practitioners’ personal information and compile blacklists. Large-scale “economic diplomacy” is used to threaten and seduce overseas organizations and companies. They set about destroying the media that Falun Gong practitioners participate in. They waste the money of taxpayers in China. WOIPFG has been recording the criminal activities of the Chinese embassies and consulates during the six year persecution of Falun Gong. After the “Special International Criminal Court to Try the Crimes of the CCP’s Persecution against Falun Gong” is established, it will sue the guilty in turn, investigate individual responsibility, and punish criminals accordingly.
WOIPFG hereby claims that we welcome Chen’s actions in declaring his resignation from the CCP and in opposing the CCP’s policy of persecuting Falun Gong. We also would remind the Chinese Ambassador in Australia, Fu Ying, and the officials, Qiu Shaofang and others in the Chinese Consulate in Sydney, that they are responsible for the security of Chen and his family members. At the same time, we also appeal to all Chinese Ambassadors and officials in Chinese Consulates to stop helping the CCP to persecute overseas Falun Gong practitioners as Chen has done, as the CCP is bound to collapse and will soon be judged by history. We will continue to closely monitor the actions of the Chinese Embassy in the United States, such as the Chinese Consulates in New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and so on, which have actively participated in persecuting Falun Gong for six years.
Presently, we are witnessing an important turning point in history. For the sake of yourselves and your families, we hope that you can follow the main historical current in withdrawing from the CCP, thereby giving up the way of evil and following the way of goodness. There will be rewards for good and repayments for evil. The choice you make will have resounding results beyond this life!
