Letter to Czech president Klaus before visit to China

Representatives of Olympic Watch and Amnesty International Czech Republic have handed over to the Office of the President a letter, written to Vaclav Klaus by four human rights organizations on the eve of his visit to the People’s Republic of China. In the letter, they appreciate that the Czech president has pledged to discuss the human rights situation in China during his trip, and add specific suggestions for negotiations.

The plea has been signed by Jan Ruml, Chairman of Olympic Watch; Tomas Pojar, Executive Director of People in Need; Marian Zajicek, Chairman of Amnesty International Czech Republic; and Lubomir Sklenka, Chairman of Lungta. They call on Mr. Klaus to mention the need for Beijing to finalize its ratification of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Further, the organizations ask Mr. Klaus to request fair treatment of five political prisoners: Wan Wanxing, Yan Jun, Tenzin Delek Rinpoche, He Depu, and Zheng Enchong.
