Foreign Falun Gong Activists Ordered to Leave China

A total of 59 foreign Falun Gong activists advocated the cult and created a public disturbance on Tian'anmen Square on Thursday. Of these, 53 from 12 countries, whose nationalities and identities have been confirmed, were sent out of the country by 6 p.m. Friday.

The remaining six, who refused to reveal their nationalities or present any form of identification, were detained by the Beijing police for investigation, sources said.

The 59 foreigners, who caused trouble on the Tian'anmen square from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, violated China's Law on Assemblies, Processions and Demonstrations and regulations dealing with destructive cults.

In accordance with the law these foreigners were removed from the square by police patrolling the area Thursday afternoon. They were reprimanded and admonished according to law, but were treated humanely.

The 53 foreigners, whose identities have been determined, were ordered to leave China within a time limit according to law. They had all left by 6 p.m. Friday.

The six foreigners, who did not have passports or other valid documents of identification with them, have refused to say who they are. They were detained by the Beijing police for investigation according to the Chinese law on border entries and exits.
