(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.

A local CCP President's Family Suffers Retribution for Persecuting Dafa

Liu Xianzhong is the president of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for Qiujiazhuang Village, Wubei Town, Laixi City, Shandong Province. He spent money on bribes to gain his official title in 2005 and became the president of the village. He followed Jiang Zemin's gang to participate in persecuting Falun gong practitioners from his village. In 2006, Liu Xianzhong reported on practitioner Zhao Xifa, who was arrested by armed policemen and sentenced to Jinan Prison for seven years. Mr. Zhao is still in prison.

Liu Xianzhong takes advantage of his power. Using the money collected from the village as incentive, he told people to destroy Falun Gong truth-clarification signs, saying he would reward them with 10 yuan. Later on the villagers understood the truth and felt that they were deceived by Liu, and they no longer destroy Falun Gong truth-clarification notices. After Liu could not find anybody to do this work, his own brother Liu Jinfa damaged Falun Gong truth-clarifying posters and banners. Falun Gong practitioners tried to tell Liu Xianzhong that this kind of behavior would bring harm to himself and his family. However, he not only refused to listen but also threatened Falun Gong practitioners.

Liu's wife also did not listen to Falun Gong practitioners and even pushed practitioners out the door, saying, "I am a party member so I will listen to the party. The Communist Party pays me money so I will do whatever the Communist party tells me to do."

It is a heavenly principal that good will be rewarded and the evil will incur retribution. This year Liu Xianzhong's wife was diagnosed with stomach cancer. In 2008, after spending nearly 10,000 yuan for surgery in Qingdao Hospital, Liu Xianzhong's younger son died.

CCP President from Changqing District, Jinan City Was Charged with Corruption

CCP president Sun Ruixiang from the Changqing District Committee, Jinan City, committed numerous sins in persecuting Falun Gong:

He instructed the district 610 Office to "transform", brainwash and send practitioners to labor camps. Along with the 610 Office and the police department, he illegally arrested three practitioners from the Changqing District - Liu Ruping, Zhang Chenglan and Dong Mei, during the Beijing Olympics. Sun instructed the district 610 Office to financially persecute Dafa practitioners Liu Ruping and Zhang Chenglan, and had their workplaces stop paying their salary during their illegal detention in a forced labor camp.

The 610 Office personnel execute orders from the local CCP president without question. During the Beijing Olympics, four people from the Changqing District Committee, including the head of the 610 Office Meng Qian and deputy head Zhang Mingli, and Xing Huichun secretly followed Dafa practitioners Liu Ruping and Zhang Chenglan. In April and May 2009, 610 Office personnel also hired gang members to follow Dafa practitioner Liu Ruping with a motorcycle. These people still follow the CCP's orders to persecute Falun Gong even after they had listened to practitioners' truth clarification, and understood the truth.

At the beginning of May 2009, Sun Ruixiang was investigated for bribery and corruption. It is said that the amount of the corruption he has been involved with is huge. The authorities searched out and uncovered hundreds of million of yuan from his office and his house alone.
