Announcement Regarding Investigations of the Mass Arrests of Falun Gong Practitioners in China in the Run up to the Olympics
(Clearwisdom.net) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has conducted a genocidal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, arresting, detaining, and torturing them and causing severe injuries and death since July 1999. In 2001, the CCP won the privilege of hosting the Beijing Olympics. The persecution has only gotten worse since then. The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) posted an "Urgent Announcement to Investigate the Mass Arrests of Falun Gong Practitioners in Beijing, Which Is Using the Olympics as an Excuse" on March 1, 2008. The facts now show that the arrests are reaching far beyond Beijing in a new round of escalation of the persecution all over China, including 29 provinces, cities (four at the provincial level), and autonomous regions.
1878 arrests have been documented from the end of 2007 to March 11, 2008. Based on the CCP human rights violations' record, the real number may far exceed those we have collected. We are investigating the work units and individuals primarily responsible completely to further verify the facts of these crimes.
Work units and individuals primarily responsible:
CCP Central Poliboro Committee member, CCP Central Political and Judiciary Committee Secretary, CCP Central Committee for Comprehensive Management of Public Security Chair Zhou Yongkang;
CCP Qinghai Province Committee Secretary, former Beijing CCP Committee Secretary, Beijing Olympics Security Task Coordination Group Leader Qiang Wei;
Olympics Security Task Coordination Group Deputy Leader Ma Zhenchuan;
Beijing Deputy Mayor, Olympics Security Task Coordination Group Deputy Leader, Beijing CCP Political and Judiciary Committee Secretary Ji Lin;
Legal System Department Chair of Public Safety Ministry Ke Liangdong;
Public Security Management Department Chair of the Public Safety Ministry Wu Mingshan;
Tongzhou District (in Beijing) CCP Standing Committee member Li Yujun;
"Civil Merit-Award" Security guard Li Weiju (male), under Jianwai Neighborhood Administration in Beijing;
Each district CCP committee, neighborhood administration, police station, domestic security division in each level of police department, Yayuncun Neighborhood Administration, etc.
Our rule is that whoever committed the crimes will be held accountable. For group crimes, the individuals involved will be counted, and planners and directors will be held responsible the same as those that directly committed the crimes. Based on this rule, all crimes committed under the auspices of various organizations and government bodies will eventually be traced to the individuals responsible.
The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong will carefully investigate all the work units and individuals responsible and further check the facts of the crimes. We welcome anyone to collect and store evidence relating to these crimes, including written documents, photos, audio-visual recordings, etc., as well as documentation of their corruption, illegal properties, overseas properties (transferred by any method). Please pass this information on to the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong through safe channels.
The WOIPFG was established on January 20, 2003. Its mission is to help the entities that administer international justice and legal punishment to thoroughly investigate all crimes related to the persecution of Falun Gong, including the governments, organizations, and individuals involved. No matter how far away or how long it takes, we will investigate this until it is resolved, help bring the killers to justice, and awaken the world's people.
