"Mr President, the EU is aware of recent forced abortions scandals in China, including the appalling case of Mrs Feng Jianmei that many of you also have referred today. The EU has also been alarmed by the reported cases of Mrs Pan Chunyan from Fujian province and of Mrs Cao Ruyi from Hunan province who were respectively eight and five months pregnant when they were submitted to compulsory measures to abort their children in April and in mid-June. The EU has taken note that the Chinese authorities have condemned such practices in the case of Mrs Feng Jianmei, and have announced that an investigation has been launched and that the responsible officials would be punished. It has also taken note that a large-scale inspection will be conducted in 19 provinces where problems in the implementation of the family planning policy have been reported. Nevertheless, the EU is concerned by reports that Mrs Feng and her family are faced with harassment and retaliation measures due to the publicity they have given to their situation. Thus the EU will continue to monitor these cases closely. Forced abortions, forced sterilisations and other instances of violence and coercion against women are illegal in China, but implementation of the law remains an entrenched problem on the ground. The EU has thus raised its concern about reports of abuses in the enforcement of the family planning policy in China in the context of the last session of the EU-China Human Rights dialogue which took place in Brussels on 29 May. The EU urged the Chinese authorities to take measures on the ground to ensure that the implementation of the family planning policy conforms with Chinese laws and China’s international human rights obligations. The EU also expressed its concern about the fact that individuals, activists and lawyers who publicly criticise such punitive enforcement tactics face repressive measures. The EU questioned the legal basis for the harassment and intimidation of the blind human rights defender Mr Chen Guangcheng, before he left for the United States, who had tried to help victims of illegal practices by local authorities in charge of family planning in Shandong province. After his release from a four-year prison sentence, Mr Chen and his family were placed under illegal house arrest and subject to violent acts by their guards. The EU also raised the case of the Chinese human rights defender Mao Hengfeng whose fight against forced abortions is well known in Europe. We urged the Chinese authorities to take measures to avoid harassment and physical violence by the police against her. The EU will continue to follow this issue and to raise its concerns with the Chinese authorities."@cs1

"Mr President, the EU is aware of recent forced abortions scandals in China, including the appalling case of Mrs Feng Jianmei that many of you also have referred today. The EU has also been alarmed by the reported cases of Mrs Pan Chunyan from Fujian province and of Mrs Cao Ruyi from Hunan province who were respectively eight and five months pregnant when they were submitted to compulsory measures to abort their children in April and in mid-June. The EU has taken note that the Chinese authorities have condemned such practices in the case of Mrs Feng Jianmei, and have announced that an investigation has been launched and that the responsible officials would be punished. It has also taken note that a large-scale inspection will be conducted in 19 provinces where problems in the implementation of the family planning policy have been reported. Nevertheless, the EU is concerned by reports that Mrs Feng and her family are faced with harassment and retaliation measures due to the publicity they have given to their situation. Thus the EU will continue to monitor these cases closely. Forced abortions, forced sterilisations and other instances of violence and coercion against women are illegal in China, but implementation of the law remains an entrenched problem on the ground. The EU has thus raised its concern about reports of abuses in the enforcement of the family planning policy in China in the context of the last session of the EU-China Human Rights dialogue which took place in Brussels on 29 May. The EU urged the Chinese authorities to take measures on the ground to ensure that the implementation of the family planning policy conforms with Chinese laws and China’s international human rights obligations. The EU also expressed its concern about the fact that individuals, activists and lawyers who publicly criticise such punitive enforcement tactics face repressive measures. The EU questioned the legal basis for the harassment and intimidation of the blind human rights defender Mr Chen Guangcheng, before he left for the United States, who had tried to help victims of illegal practices by local authorities in charge of family planning in Shandong province. After his release from a four-year prison sentence, Mr Chen and his family were placed under illegal house arrest and subject to violent acts by their guards. The EU also raised the case of the Chinese human rights defender Mao Hengfeng whose fight against forced abortions is well known in Europe. We urged the Chinese authorities to take measures to avoid harassment and physical violence by the police against her. The EU will continue to follow this issue and to raise its concerns with the Chinese authorities."@pl16
