China Society for Human Rights Studies on April 2nd released a statement that the report issued by the Amnesty International on March 31st about China's human rights was unfair, groundless and unacceptable which was totally ignorant of the objective facts and achievements made by China, and unreasonably criticized and distorted the situation of human rights in China.

The statement said that China would insistently fight against any organization's intention to defame or attack China under the pretence of human rights, or to make the advantage of Olympic Games to threat China. As a country under the rule of law, China would never concede to certain organization's groundless criticisms. Instead, China would insist on the reform and development, promote the democracy and the legislation, persist in running the country in accordance with the law, and respect and secure the human rights to boost the full development of human rights cause as well as promote the harmonious development of the society.  Besides, the Chinese people determinedly disagreed to politicize the Olympic Games and showed great confidence in hosting a high level Beijing Olympic Games with distinctive features. No organization or individual could hinder its normal development.
