(Clearwisdom.net) On May 27,2004, Falun Gong practitioners in Helsinki appealed at the Chinese embassy to support the legal action taken in the USA against the former President of the People's Republic of China, Jiang Zemin. Jiang is the main person responsible for launching the persecution against Falun Gong, and he is charged with torture, genocide and crimes against humanity. He established the notorious "6-10" office and he is directly responsible for persecuting millions of Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Jiang was served with a lawsuit in October 2002, while he was visiting the United States and the lawsuit has now proceeded to the U.S. Federal Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, where oral arguments will be heard from the plaintiffs' lawyer. Jiang also faces lawsuits in Taiwan, Germany, Belgium and Spain.

This lawsuit has a significant meaning in the legal community and among the world's people. The persecution that Jiang personally launched is targeted at people who strive to become better people by following the principles of Truth, Compassion and Forbearance. This persecution thus has an impact on people's conscience and moral standards worldwide. By clarifying the facts about the persecution, Falun Gong practitioners have touched people's hearts and awakened their sense of justice. More and more people are condemning Jiang for his crimes against humanity.
