Dr. Charles Li, an American Citizen and practitioner of Falun Gong, was detained after arriving at the Guangzhou Airport on January 22, 2003. He is facing a sentence of up to 15 years in a Chinese prison on dubious charges, and is only allowed 30 minutes per month of contact with the US Embassy.
Charles and his fiancée both practice Falun Gong (about), which has been brutally persecuted for over three years in China.
After receiving a medical degree in China, Charles came to the United States, and began graduate study in 1991 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on a full scholarship. He graduated in 1995 with a Masters degree in Physiology, and then went to Harvard to do research. He is now living in Menlo Park, California where he manages his own business.
I cannot believe that the Chinese government would want to arrest such a kind and honest person. Of course, I worry for Charles’ safety. I care for him very much. But I know he has done nothing wrong, and I believe he will come home soon.
People all over the world know that Falun Gong is good and that this persecution is evil. People can see through the lies and the propaganda for themselves. Even in China, the government and people know in their hearts that the persecution is wrong and cannot last. How long can people with ulterior motives cover up the truth?
Charles is an American citizen and has done nothing wrong. He should be released immediately. Please help bring my fiancé home.
