Former Rocket Technology Engineer Files Lawsuit Against Former Chinese Leader Jiang Zemin
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Wang Liangqing from Beijing filed a criminal complaint against former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin on May 15, 2015. The lawsuit was sent via express mail to the Supreme People's Procuratorate.
His complaint states that because Jiang Zemin initiated the persecution of Falun Gong, thousands of practitioners, including himself, have suffered severely. He is accusing Jiang of illegal detention and imprisonment and causing his financial losses and the illegal termination of his employment.
Mr. Wang Liangqing, a former engineer with China's Rocket Launch Technology Institute, began practicing Falun Gong in 1995.
Held in Labor Camp for His Belief
From August 1999 to May 2000, Mr. Wang was arrested three times and detained in Fengtai Detention Center after he protested at Tiananmen Square in Beijing for the right to practice Falun Dafa.
From July 2000 to December 2001, he was incarcerated in Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp.
In December 2000, he was fired from his job at the Rocket Launch Technology Institute.
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 over 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.
