(Clearwisdom.net) On December 16, an Austrian newspaper carried a report from the Austria Press Agency. The report said that a lawsuit against several chief perpetrators of the persecution of Falun Gong had been recently filed in Vienna.

The report said that a lawsuit against Liu Qi has been filed with the Vienna Prosecutor's Office. Liu is the president of the Beijing Olympic Games Organizing Committee. The Austrian Falun Dafa Association charged Liu and three other high ranking Chinese Communist Party officials for "Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity."

The report said that Liu was sued together with former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) head Jiang Zemin and two heads of the 610 Office, Li Lanqiang and Luo Gan. Schrott, a representative for the Austrian Falun Dafa Association, said that the 610 Office is an agency similar to the Nazi Gestapo and was created to persecute Falun Gong.

The report said that the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999 and practitioners have been subject to torture and even unwilling organ harvesting for the organ transplant trade.
