Statement of Temtsiltu Shobtsuud, President of Inner Mongolian People's Party

Hada was arrested and sentenced to 15 years in jail by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on December 10, 1995. The date he was supposed to be released was December 10, 2010, Human Rights Day having completed the entire 15 year period term. Throughout the years in prison, he has never given up on what he believes. The biggest "crime" he committed was to search for a peaceful way out for the Southern Mongolians. He has never advocated violence or turning against the Chinese. What he sought was for the Southern Mongolians to become the true owners of their own lands to enjoy a life like others do. According to international law and common sense of humanity, Hada has not committed any crime, but the Chinese Government sentenced him to 15 years in jail which he has completed, yet the CCP refuses to restore his freedom. Now not only has the CCP illegally abducted him after his scheduled release along with his wife and son. This is a violation of China's very own laws. This certainly is not in accordance with a government and a country ruled by law, it's an act of gangster politics.
I hope all conscientious individuals, all Southern Mongolians and Mongolians from elsewhere stand up to oppose this evil deed. This is happening to Hada today but it could happen to any one of us tomorrow if we do not stand up to resist this. Beyond the threat to freedom, this has affected our sense of well-being. One should not say this is not my business. If everyone does so, not only will this jeopardize the basic human rights and fundamental freedoms of the Mongolians, Tibetans and Uyghurs but also of the Chinese people. We argue Hada was not guilty but the CCP says he is a criminal. Even if he is assumed a criminal, his jail term is over. He should be given his freedom back. Yet the CCP handles this in an extremely inhumane mafia style way, not in a way a society that respects the rule of law acts. Therefore I urge your careful attention to this case.
