HRWF International Calls on EU States to Heed and Learn About The Church of Almighty God
Recently, Human Rights Without Frontiers International (HRWF International) issued a document on its official website urging the authorities of all European Union member states to grant political asylum to Christians of(CAG), who have fled overseas due to the brutal persecution against their faith. Prior to this, nine international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including CAP Freedom of Conscience (CAPLC), Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR), and European Interreligious Forum for Religious Freedom (EIFRF), had jointly denounced the CCP's suppression and persecution on CAG. With the escalating suppression on religious beliefs by the CCP government, tens of thousands of CAG Christians have been arrested and victimized, many of whom were forced to flee to numerous European countries to seek political asylum. However, most applicants have been rejected by the authorities. Their outlooks are grim as they are at risk of being repatriated at any time. Studies by experts have disclosed that, in order to conceal its crime for suppressing and persecuting CAG, the Chinese government has been conducting a massive media offensive internationally to generate false news stories, malicious fabrications and defamation against CAG, making it difficult for refugee agencies of European countries to objectively learn about CAG, much less verify the real situations of individual Christians having been persecuted in China. Mr. Willy Fautré, executive director of HRWF International, calls on governments of EU member states to change their views on CAG. A few days ago, our correspondent visited CAG in France for an understanding of these exiled Christians' current conditions.
