Mr. Hill,

On Monday (5/11/07), the Supreme Court of NSW issued a default judgement against Chinese Minister of Commerce, 
Mr BO Xilai recognising his failure to provide a defense for the torture case brought against him by 
Sydney Falun Gong practitioner and Chinese labour camp survivor, Mr PAN Yu. 
This is the first won in a case against Bo Xilai, 58, who had been sued in over ten countries, including the USA,
the UK, Canada, Germany, and Ireland for his role in the persecution Falun Gong practitioners in China. 
Bo was served a Statement of Claim in person on 4 September 2007 in Canberra prior to the APEC forum.  
Another two similar cases are in the Supreme Court of NSW and are progressing towards similar judgements against 
former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, the 6-10 ´Gestapo-like´ office and its head Chen Shaoji.  
"This is a win not only for all Chinese people and Falun Gong practitioners, but also a potent reminder of the 
currently opposing legal sytems between Australia and China, as still to this day, no lawyers in China are allowed 
to take on such cases. We are another step closer to the event of the perpetrators of the persecution of Falun Gong 
in China being brought to justice at an international level," said Mr Newton XU, legal assistant for the case. 
"As soon as the [40,000 watt electric] baton would make contact [with] me, I would lose control of my bodily functions, 
rendering me incontinent. They also applied the electric baton to my face and my head, which made me feel as 
though I wanted to die, but I would just hold on. In the end, they applied the baton to the most sensitive spot on my 
inner leg. The pain was indescribable," said Mr PAN in a testimony of his ordeal. 
As Governor of Liaoning Province in 2000, Bo Xilai played a pivotal role in the campaign of eradication directed against 
Falun Gong practitioners. The persecution of Falun Gong in Liaoning is severe, with at least 373 known cases of deaths 
of Falun Gong practitioners confirmed -
