2010 UN Report Highlights Falun Gong Persecution in China

Submitted by Falun Gong Human Rights Working Group

As in previous years, allegations of severe human rights violations in China were a significant component in reports presented at the 13th Session of the UN Human Rights Council, held in Geneva from March 1-26th. Three UN Special Rapporteurs detailed ongoing violations of Falun Gong Practitioners’ human rights in their annual investigations and conclusions to the UN. The Rapporteurs included Manfred Nowak, whose mandate is to investigate torture; Asma Jahangir, whose mandate is freedom of religion and belief; and Margaret Sekaggya, who investigates the status of human rights defenders around the world.

All three Rapporteurs sent numerous appeals to the Chinese government concerning Falun Gong practitioners, Tibetans, Christians, Uyghurs and those who have sought to defend their legal and human rights. Their reports can be downloaded from the UN official web site:http://www2.ohchr.org/english/bodies/hrcouncil/13session/reports.htm . (Document Numbers: Manfred Nowak, A/HRC/13/39/Add.1, A/HRC/13/39/Add.5; Asma Jahangir, A/HRC/13/40/Add.1; Margaret Sekaggya, A/HRC/13/22/Add.1).
