Wang Lijun's Fall from Grace–An Example to Other Persecutors of Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) Wang Lijun, vice-mayor and former police chief of Chongqing, a city in southwest China, suddenly sought protection from the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu City, a four-hour drive west, on February 6, 2012.
The Washington Free Beacon website, in a long article entitled “House Probes Botched Defection in China,” revealed detailed information about Wang Lijun, who stayed the night at the consulate. The February 15 article was written by veteran editor Bill Gertz, a national security writer who specializes in China issues. The article quoted a U.S. official familiar with Wang's debriefing at the U.S. Consulate, saying that Wang provided details about “corruption and links to organized crime by his boss, Bo Xilai, as well as details about Chinese police repression of dissent.”
Wang Lijun was Bo Xilai's right-hand-man. Bo Xilai is the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) chief in Chongqing. According to a reliable source, CCP Central Disciplinary Committee officials had a secret conversation with Wang Lijun prior to New Year's Day 2012, asking him to hand over all recordings of Bo Xilai's remarks, and to cooperate in overthrowing Bo. When Bo discovered that Wang was under investigation, he removed Wang from office, trying to make a clear break from him. Wang feared Bo would assassinate him in order to keep him from testifying to Beijing authorities, which is the main reason that he sought protection from the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu.
Wang Lijun's request for asylum was rejected by the U.S. Consulate. He thus was required to leave the U.S. Consulate on the day after his arrival. One of the main reasons was his participation in the persecution of Falun Gong. The United States is a country that takes freedom of belief and human rights as its fundamental values, so how can it protect a criminal who has demonstrated that he has no respect for human rights and persecutes innocent people who remain steadfast in their beliefs?
During Wang's tenure as Jinzhou City Police Department head, he ordered that Falun Gong practitioners must be thoroughly eradicated. He also directly oversaw the physical abuse and torture of Falun Gong practitioners. According to evidence collected by the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG), Wang Lijun is suspected of having participated in forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners when he worked as police chief in Jinzhou.
In Wang Lijun's official resume, there is a section that has nothing to do with his role as a police chief. Although he has no corresponding academic qualifications, during his tenure, he was recognized as having made an achievement in organ transplant research, titled: “The first experimental research on organ transplantation in China after injection of medications.” [The injections were probably anti-coagulants and medications that lower the chance of immune system rejection of the transplanted organ.] This suggests that Wang Lijun was directly involved in organ transplantation.
No One Can Escape Heavenly Retribution
Since July 20, 1999, the Tieling City Police Department headed by Wang Lijun followed Jiang Zemin's genocidal policy to ruthlessly persecute Falun Gong. Falun Gong practitioners were subjected to extortion, detention, forced labor terms and imprisonment. Regardless of whether they were elderly, or young mothers with infant children, none were spared. Wang also instigated police officers to use police dogs to threaten and attack Falun Gong practitioners in 2001.
Practitioners in Tieling compassionately spoke with Wang Lijun about Falun Gong and told him about the principle that good will be rewarded with good and evil will meet with karmic retribution, in the hopes that he would stop persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. But Wang refused to listen to them, and instead he publicly claimed, “Let's put aside all murder cases, and focus specifically on Falun Gong. We are not afraid of karmic retribution.”
Having been brainwashed by the CCP's atheist ideology, Wang Lijun does not believe that good will be rewarded with good and evil will meet with karmic retribution. Nor does he value human life. Instead Wang sought to garner favor with the CCP and make a name for himself by killing people. However, disbelief in divine beings does not mean that they do not exist, and disbelief in karmic retribution does not mean that one can escape the constraints of heavenly principles.
A Lesson for All Those Who Have Participated in the Persecution
Many communist officials have been rewarded politically for their participation in the persecution of Falun Gong. The regime has lied to those who are involved in the persecution, deceiving them in order to make them feel at ease with their roles in the persecution. Thus, officials like Wang Lijun participated in the persecution to seek a name and personal advancement, and were encouraged to continue committing crimes.
If it had not been for the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, Wang would have not committed such a monstrous crime by participating in the forced organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.
As one of the participants in forced organ harvesting, Wang Lijun has first-hand evidence of the CCP's crimes. In particular, he has knowledge of the time between 2001 and 2004, during Bo Xilai's tenure as deputy Party secretary and governor of Liaoning Province, when the forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners was most rampant.
A victim of the CCP himself, Wang Lijun was able to flee to the U.S. Consulate to save his life. In order to atone for his sins, he should tell the world what he knows of the CCP's organ harvesting atrocities against Falun Gong.
Wang Lijun's is an example that other CCP officials, especially those who have participated in the forced organ harvesting, should pay close attention to. In order to carry out their criminal acts, the CCP has used them as tools. When the critical moment comes, the CCP will not protect them. What future do these people have? Only by seeing through the CCP's evil nature, exposing the facts about the persecution, and atoning for their crimes, can they hope to find a way out.
