Two Practitioners Filed a Lawsuit Against Jiang in 2000: One Died from Torture, the Other Was Sentenced to Prison, Part 2 (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) Continued from Part 1.
Recent situation regarding Zhu Keming
Zhu Keming's family received a notice in February 2001, telling them to pick Zhu up in Fangshan County, Beijing. When family members arrived in Fangshan, the police told them that Zhu had been taken somewhere. They did not say who picked him up.
In April 2001, Zhu's family was told that Zhu Keming had been secretly sentenced to five years in prison. He was transferred to Tianjin's Chadian Prison.
According to a reliable source, even now, the police monitor Zhu daily. The police call him the "last one out of the prison" because he not only resists the brainwashing attempts but also writes monthly appeals.
The police told him if he agrees to write the "four statements"(Promissory statement, Repentance Statement, Dissociation Statement and Criticism Statement" all having to do with his Falun Dafa practice), he will be released from prison. But Zhu Keming is determined in his faith and refuses to compromise in any way.
The source also said that the prison officials have never delivered any of Zhu Keming's appeals to the proper departments.
People Support Zhu Keming
Since August 2001, Falun Gong practitioners in Hong Kong and the U.S. have made numerous efforts to appeal for Zhu's release. The Associated Press, BBC Monitor, Agence France Presse, the Mingbao Newspaper, On-line Good Newspaper and Apple Daily have filed reports on his case.
In an Apple Daily commentary in 2000 the author wrote, "According to the Chinese Communist Government's Constitution, Chinese citizens have freedom of speech, of communication, of the press, of assembly, of association, the freedom to have a march, to hold a demonstration and to strike. They also have freedom of religion. Citizens can bring accusations and appeals to all levels of government agencies about [acts of] violation of the constitution and incompetence by any government agencies, companies and officials..., no one can suppress and take revenge against such accusations and appeals. Zhu Keming must have launched the lawsuit based on such language in the Constitution."
"When he was arrested, he might have thought, 'no one can take revenge. This Falun Gong practitioner trusted the constitution too much. His eventual incarceration was quite predictable."
In the same article the author also wrote, "Throughout Chinese history, almost all emperors have admitted their faults, on some occasions facing criticism from their loyal and honest ministers. However, the leaders of Communist China have never admitted their mistakes and their violations of the law. They could always refer to their predecessors for justification. When Hitler's fascist ally Mussolini ruled Italy, the regime had a slogan, 'Mussolini is always right!'"
Lawsuits against Jiang Zemin in overseas countries are on the rise
From October 2002 to December 2004, Falun Gong practitioners outside of China launched lawsuits against Jiang Zemin in the U.S., Belgium, Spain, Taiwan, Germany, Korea, Canada, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Bolivia, Chile and Holland. The lawsuits charge Jiang with crimes of genocide, torture and crimes against humanity, and have caused widespread public attention from the people of many countries.
In the words of the lawyer representing the plaintiffs of Chicago's lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, the overseas Falun Gong practitioners launched the lawsuit against Jiang and his main accomplices "in order to stop the Jiang regime's on-going persecution of Falun Gong." Through the legal systems in the free world, "they told the world that a genocide is happening in China. They also encourage more people to help stop the persecution through other channels."
In fact, the lawsuits have helped the legal community and other people learn about the causes and consequences of the persecution, its severity and the horrible harm it brings to China and the world. These lawsuits are a part of the battle between the just and the evil. In the near future, Jiang Zemin and all his accomplices who participated in the persecution will definitely be brought to justice.
