The China Anti-Cult Association (CACA) Tuesday denounced the hijack of Sino Satellite (Sinosat) by overseas members of the Falun Gong cult.
Manipulated by cult ringleader Li Hongzhi, Falun Gong illegallylaunched radio signals to jam Sinosat's transmission, thus violating international laws and basic rules of civil telecommunications, the CACA said in a statement.
Its latest offenses had jeopardized public safety and infringedthe people's legal rights and interests, and once again exposed the anti-humanity, anti-science and anti-society nature of the Falun Gong cult, the association declared.
Moreover, the evil cult had added to its list of crimes by hijacking the satellite, breaching the drive for peace and development both in China and the world at large, CACA noted.
The association urged the international community to condemn the offense and launch joint measures to curb further incursions by the Falun Gong cult.
CACA had been engaged in combating the cult ever since it was founded, CACA said. The hijack staged by Falun Gong groups abroad indicated that the complex and fierce struggle against the evil cult will last for a long time, it said.
The association said that it was firmly resolved to unite people from all walks of life to deal hard blows at the cult and finally eliminate it, and to safeguard social stability as well asthe safety of the people's lives, property and interests.
