Spokesman of Chinese Embassy in Washington answers question of a reporter


Q: Recently, the Falun Gong organization claimed that there is a concentration camp in Sujiatun, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province with more than 6000 people in it. What's your comment on it?

A: The story fabricated by Falun Gong began to spread on March 8. We didn't pay attention to it as it was so absurd. There is no such so-called "Concentration Camp" in Su Jia Tun, a district of Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. In fact, Su Jia Tun is located in the southern suburbs of Shenyang city of Liaoning Province. It is a pilot agriculture suburb and grain-producing district of Liaoning Province. There is no prison or any so-called "Concentration Camp" in Su Jia Tun District. Rumoring and stigmatizing are general tricks used by Falun Gong and this rumor once again reveals the real face of Falun Gong. Falun Gong claimed that the Concentration Camp is surrounded by 3-metre-high wall decorated with wire entanglement, and in it there detained over 6,000 Falun Gong members, two thirds of who have been burned in the incinerator. Later, Falun Gong realized what they fabricated was far beyond the proper, so Falun Gong changed the story and said that Concentration Camp was in a small hospital. Just think about it, how can a small hospital hold over 6,000 people? Such ridiculous rumor is really out of air and doesn't deserve our refuting. Falun Gong has been known to favor fabricating rumors.
