Parliamentary questions
3 February 2011
Answer given by High Representative/Vice-President Ashton on behalf of the Commission

The EU is aware of the case of Mr Guo Xiaojun. The Commission understands that he is currently imprisoned after being accused of  ‘using a cult to undermine the implementation of the law’, and is being held in the Baoshan detention centre in Shanghai. The Commission believes that the charges are related to his practice of Falun Gong. It is reported that he was denied access to a lawyer during his appeal hearing. Guo Xiaojun is scheduled for release on 1 July 2014.

The EU regularly raises cases of concern with the Chinese authorities. In doing so, it seeks to underline the obligations on the Chinese authorities both under international law,  and the Chinese constitution, to respect the freedom of religious belief and practice. The EU has also raised concerns about current Chinese policy to restrict the independence of the legal profession, and the pressure that defence lawyers can sometimes come under to withhold their services to detainees in sensitive cases.
