(Minghui.org) A trial was scheduled recently in the Shenzhen Bao'an District Court (case number 4805) for 9:30 a.m. on September 28, 2012. However, when the family members arrived at the court according to schedule, they were told that the case had been tried in secret on September 21. The court's explanation was that the court system had a problem that led to an error in the trial's schedule. The family was very angry and asked court personnel: "If the court knew there was a problem with the system, why didn't they notify the families instead of using the excuse of a 'system error'?"

Let us look at what kind of case this was. On April 4, 2012, during the Ching Ming Festival holiday, when Shenzhen City Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Wang Xiangyu, Ms. Zhong Yingchun, Ms. Chen Hengmei, and Ms. Ying were gathering at a friend's home in the Bao'an District, personnel from the Shenzhen City 610 Office suddenly arrived and arrested them. Ms. Zhong and Ms. Wang were illegally detained in the Jiuwei Detention Center in Bao'an District, Shenzhen. Ms. Chen was taken to the Shenzhen Xili Brainwashing Center. Five months later, she was taken to the Sanshui Brainwashing Center in Guangdong. When her family members learned the news, they asked the authorities of her whereabouts. Not only did each department shove them away and not provide the family any information, but the family was threatened not spread the news.

Who are these people that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) arrested? In fact, they are just like you and me. They have families, have careers to support their families, and make contributions to society with hard work. They are Falun Gong practitioners who follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to guide their lives.

It is common for friends to get together during holidays. The Constitution protects the rights of citizens to the freedom of assembly. What crime is it for friends to share and talk? However, in today's China, such a ridiculous thing has occurred. What could be wrong with believing in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance? Falun Gong practitioners always treat people according to these principles. Unlike in China, Falun Gong is welcomed in over one hundred countries around the world. Overseas Falun Gong practitioners do exercises in parks and use peaceful means to voice their concerns about the persecution in China.

The persecution was started 1999 by Jiang Zemin, former dictator of China. He adopted a genocidal policy against Falun Gong practitioners: “Defame their reputations, bankrupt them financially, and destroy them physically.” In contrast to the tight organizational structure of the CCP, the growth of Falun Gong is based on person to person, heart to heart contact, and people are free to come and go as they please. Falun Gong practitioners practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and notice greatly improved physical and mental health after practicing it. The number of people practicing has grown rapidly. In merely seven years time, from 1992 to 1999, there were one hundred million Chinese people practicing in China.

At that time, Falun Gong practitioners could be seen doing exercises in almost all of the parks. The CCP said that Falun Gong was vying with the CCP for the masses and it was a religion. In fact, Falun Gong brings back the culture and lifestyle of the traditional China. The reason why Jiang Zemin and the CCP were so afraid of Falun Gong was because once the masses re-embrace traditional morality, no force could stop the rapidly expanding trend. For decades, the CCP has cut people off and tampered with this ancient heritage. Restoring this traditional culture is inevitable, by the masses who have experienced so much suffering under the CCP's rule. The inevitable result is a clear distinction between right and wrong, and rejection of evil. It is a fundamental denial and abandonment of the CCP, and it pointed to the achilles heel of the CCP--especially when the number of people practicing Falun Gong became greater than that of Communist Party members. One can imagine the sense of fear and jealousy within the CCP.

After the CCP started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, it began using the same evil means it used in all of its previous political movements to imprison Falun Gong practitioners without any legal procedures. It uses deception, violence, beatings, sleep deprivation, brutal force-feedings, and injection of toxic drugs. The CCP is doing even more terrifying things. Its Public Security Bureau collaborates with hospitals to harvest the organs of Falun Gong practitioners, while they are still alive. Besides the tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners who have actuality been murdered as a result of the organ harvesting, more than 3,600 Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted to death on record. And more than 100,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been sent to forced labor camps illegally.

The persecution of Falun Gong has been characterized by the international community as “genocide,” and a “crime against humanity.” Many believe the CCP's crimes are even worse than Hitler's numerous crimes during World War II. In February this year, CCP senior official Wang Lijun fled to the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu with confidential information, which included information on the harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. Wang Lijun, Bo Xilai, and Zhou Yongkang, are the main culprits in the persecution of Falun Gong. Many who were previously involved in the persecution of Falun Gong, upon seeing what may happen to them, have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

In the face of the persecution, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) has been investigating the criminal conduct of all institutions, organizations, and individuals involved in the persecution. The WOIPFG is committed to bring such investigations, no matter how long it takes, no matter how far and deep it has to search, to full closure, and to exercise fundamental principles of humanity to restore and uphold justice in society. Their investigation reports have been released on the Internet. They comprise a total of 22 volumes, 203 reports, citing more than 4200 pieces of evidence and more than 160 million words. Over time, as more facts are disclosed, more people will join the ranks of the righteous.

The conscience of many people have been awakened thanks to the tireless efforts of Falun Gong practitioners, who risk their lives to spread the truth. Their determined efforts to spread the truth reveal the CCP's repulsive ugly face. The details of this so-called “secret trial” are too shameful to be brought up in a public “trial.” The CCP Political and Legal Committee itself is an illegal entity and the illegal trial procedures should not exist.

History will eventually reveal the truth, and good and evil will eventually meet with either blessings or retribution. That is why there are so many people who can now see the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party and have made a choice for justice. By rejecting the CCP they have chosen a bright future for themselves.
