Suing Jiang Zemin with Dignity
(Minghui.org) After reading “The Role of Jiang Zemin in the Persecution of Falun Gong - a Legal Brief,” I realized that the progress of Fa-rectification has reached a point where we should hold Jiang Zemin accountable for the persecution.
Jiang launched the persecution campaign in July 1999, which has caused the deaths of countless practitioners. The Chinese Communist Party's propaganda has poisoned hundreds of millions of Chinese who could face elimination for being associated with the Party. Jiang's crimes are enormous.
Jiang has been sued in 30 countries since 2001 for his campaign of genocide, crimes against humanity, and torture. These lawsuits have deterred the evil tremendously. However, the persecution still continues in China. The extralegal “610 Office” that Jiang and his accomplices established seems to be the campaign's last line of defense.
For example, on June 2, 2014, Legal Evening, one of the mouthpieces of the central Party leadership, and other news media, listed 14 religious groups as “officially banned cult organizations.” Falun Gong was not listed.
The list of 14 organizations came from an internal document issued in 2000 by the Ministry of Public Security (MPS), “Notice of MPS 2000 No. 39.” Out of the 14 organizations listed as “cults,” 7 were named by the Office of the CCP's Central Committee and Office of State Council, and 7 were named by the MPS itself.
This shows that the persecution of Falun Gong was not official; it was a personal act and single-handedly driven by Jiang Zemin.
The “China Anti-Cult Association,” controlled by Jiang's 610 Office, was quoted the next day in the Hua Shang newspaper in Shaanxi Province. The association called for the continuous publishing of lies to defame Falun Gong. In my view, this was Jiang's last line of defense: sustaining the persecution so he wouldn't be held accountable.
Therefore, holding him accountable for his crimes is a key element to ending the persecution.
In China, criminal complaints are required to bear the real names of the plaintiffs. Therefore, the process of suing Jiang is also a process of getting rid of human attachments for practitioners.
For the sake of saving sentient beings and ending the persecution, we should sue Jiang, the chief culprit of the persecution, especially since the Supreme Court of China enacted a new policy on May 1, 2015: every complaint will be registered and processed.
How do we do that? Below are a few thoughts:
1. Every practitioner has suffered from the persecution. Therefore, each of us can sue Jiang. If we all file criminal complaints, the lawsuits will become the biggest collection in human history. This will create a strong momentum that will deter the persecution.
2. We should focus our legal efforts on the chief culprit of the persecution. Therefore, I suggest that all fellow practitioners file criminal complaints against Jiang to the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate.
3. Jiang's key crimes include violating articles 33 and 36 of the Chinese Constitution and the basic human rights of citizens, and committing crimes against humanity in his persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. We should list the crimes against humanity as the first item in our complaints.
4. Practitioners who have suffered injuries and other losses can add other crimes in their complaints based on their individual situations and applicable articles under Chinese criminal law. Jiang must be held accountable for all cases of persecution.
The above is my personal understanding. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate and help improve the idea. Thank you.
