Policemen's Attitudes During the Movement to Prosecute Jiang Zemin
(Minghui.org) Since May 2015, Falun Gong practitioners' effort to prosecute Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist regime, gained momentum. These lawsuits are submitted to the Supreme People's Procuratorate and the Supreme People's Court in Beijing.
Since the middle of October, Domestic Security police officers from our county took different approaches with regards to the so-called “re-visiting and verification” process of practitioners who filed lawsuits against Jiang.
Practitioners maintained strong righteous thoughts, and the officers have also changed their attitudes toward practitioners. This latest trend shows a significant change from the past, when the authorities persecuted practitioners more harshly.
Avoiding the Persecutors List
Two officers made an appointment with practitioner Wang to verify something related to the lawsuits against Jiang. The next day, this practitioner clarified the truth about Falun Gong to the officers. The officers asked that they not be named on the “Persecutors List.”
Statement on Human Rights
Two officers talked to practitioner Ben about his lawsuit. At the end, they asked him to sign a statement that they had not violated his human rights.
A married couple, both practitioners, submitted a criminal complaint to the Supreme People's Procuratorate in early June. Information about the complaint was published on the Minghui website in early July. Domestic security police and officers town officials contacted the couple to verify their case.
The husband clarified the truth about Falun Gong to them, while the wife meditated in front of these officers. She held her palm up vertically in front of her chest and sent righteous thoughts. Neither the officers nor the government officials said anything. The notes they took were factual and not accusatory.
When they asked that the couple sign the document, the husband added one sentence: “Their visit today was interference and harassment.”
The husband was browsing the internet when he heard someone knock on the door. He opened without it turning off his computer because he thought they might be other practitioners or neighbors.
As soon as he saw that they were police officers, he went to turn off the computer. One officer said, “It's alright, I know which website you're on.”
Nowadays, police officers say that they are only following orders. They asked practitioners not to be hostile to them.
They also tell practitioners not to file lawsuits. Both police and government officials say that nobody would bother them if they practiced secretly at home.
Policemen are changing for the better. People from different backgrounds are changing, too.
“Though an evil fog still lingers over ChinaAwareness of Dafa is spreading to each houseLives are rescued, minds gradually awakenedWaking, police and citizens cease to obstructThe masses know the evil Party is done forAll are talking about the CCP’s cruel and evil deedsEvildoers and their head are seeking a way outTraditional ways are returning to rectify China”(“Glimpses of Goodness, Hong Yin III)
This step-to-step change is exactly like what Master told us!
In 1999, Jiang Zemin, as head of the Chinese Communist Party, overrode other Politburo standing committee members and launched the violent suppression of Falun Gong.
The persecution has led to the deaths of many Falun Gong practitioners in the past 16 years. More have been tortured for their belief and even killed for their organs. Jiang Zemin is directly responsible for the inception and continuation of the brutal persecution.
Under his personal direction, the Chinese Communist Party established an extralegal security organ, the “610 Office,” on June 10, 1999. The organization overrides police forces and the judicial system in carrying out Jiang's directive regarding Falun Gong: to ruin their reputations, cut off their financial resources, and destroy them physically.
Chinese law allows for citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are now exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
