(Clearwisdom.net) Editors' note: In both Western and Chinese cultures, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The universe will reward acts that are in harmony with this principle, while doing things such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionate reminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they, too ,be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.

Retribution for a Party Secretary Involved in Persecuting Falun Gong

Qiao Yu, the former Party secretary of the street committee in Jinzhou City, was instrumental in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners when he was the street secretary of the Majia area of Jinzhou City. He plotted and planned behind the scenes while Liang Xingwu and Ren Jinsheng carried out his orders. They extorted money from practitioners in order to reach a financial quota. Later, he took the position of street secretary in the Railway department of Jinzhou City. He claimed in public at a conference that he relied on extorting money from Dafa practitioners to reach the financial goals during his term in the Majia area.

On August 20, 2002, practitioner Mr. Liu Zhi was tortured to death, leaving behind his little girl. His distraught family qualified for financial aid, and when they applied for it, a conscientious policeman was sympathetic toward them and tried to help. But Qiao Yu rejected their application.

Soon after that, Qiao Yu suffered appendicitis with serious complications and almost lost his life. People talked among themselves in private. They felt that he had received retribution because he persecuted Falun Gong practitioners.

In August 2007, Qiao Yu was eventually interrogated and his house was confiscated due to his crimes of bribery. A large amount of money was found and taken away from his home. Later he was placed under house arrest and has now been transferred to Panjing to be isolated and further interrogated.
