8. Transnational Radical Party Against The Olympic Games In Beijing


Moscow: Demonstration By The Transnational Radical Party Against The Olympic
Games In Beijing. The Russian Police Arrest Nikolai Khramov, The
Transnational Radical Party Co-Ordinator, And Another Eleven Demonstrators

Rome-Moscow, 13 July 2001. At 9 am local time the Moscow police arrested
Nikolai Khramov, the Transnational Radical Party co-ordinator in Russia, and
another eleven people who had taken part in a peaceful demonstration
organised by the TRP against the candidature of Beijing to host the 2008
Olympic Games. Together with the Radical leader, the police also arrested a
Buddhist monk, two journalists from Reporters Sans Frontičres, and the
director of the Prima News Agency and former Soviet dissident Alexander
Podradiniek.

Statement by Olivier Dupuis, Secretary of the Transnational Radical Party
and member of the European Parliament:

"After the refusal by the Russian authorities to grant an entry visa to Wei
Jingsheng in order to prevent him from taking part in a press conference
organised in Moscow by the Tibet Bureau and the Transnational Radical Party
against the Olympic Games in Beijing, after the intervention by the Russian
police the day before yesterday, with the consequent arrest of five
demonstrators, the arrest this morning of Nikolai Khramov, the Radical
co-ordinator in Russia, and another eleven people who were taking part in
the demonstration against the candidature of Beijing to host the 2008
Olympic Games, confirms the existence of the iron pact of mutual
'comprehension' between Russia and the People's Republic of China: silence
on Tibet and Chechnya, tolerance of the violation of human rights, as well
as further proof of the new hard-line regime in Moscow."
