(Minghui.org) A total of 181 Falun Gong practitioners from Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia filed criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin between late May and July 24, 2015, according to reports compiled by the Minghui website.

The practitioners charge the former Chinese dictator with initiating the brutal suppression of Falun Gong and hold him responsible for the tremendous suffering inflicted upon them by his campaign. The criminal complaints were mailed to the Supreme People's Court and Supreme People's Procuratorate.

Many of these practitioners recounted how Falun Gong returned them to health and gave them a new outlook on life. Their dream to live a healthier and happier life, however, was shattered when Jiang Zemin launched a nationwide campaign to eradicate the practice in 1999.

Simply for refusing to give up their belief, they were arrested, detained, tortured, and had their homes ransacked and personal belongings seized by the communist authorities. Many also saw their families implicated for their belief, while some were also forced to pay huge fines.

The Hulunbuir practitioners who filed criminal complaints include include physicians, government officials, and business employees.

Mr. Wang Lishan and Ms. Zhu Guilan: Couple Detained for Brainwashing

Mr. Wang Lishan (王立山), 80, is a retired physician. His wife, Ms. Zhu Guilan (朱桂兰), 77, is retired from the Inner Mongolian Health Bureau.

The couple’s house was ransacked almost every month between 1999 and 2002. Ms. Zhu was arrested in 2000 and detained for seven months. Officials extorted 80,000 yuan from this family. They were held at a brainwashing center for one day in April 2002. Mr. Wang was detained again for a month and a half in 2005.

Police monitored, followed, and harassed the couple, and even tapped their phone line between 1999 and 2012.

Ms. Zhao Jianchun: 13-Year-Old Daughter Detained for Eight Months

Ms. Zhao Jianchun (赵建春), 64, is a retired professional. Her home was ransacked twice. She was illegally detained three times and sentenced to forced labor twice, totaling five years.

She, her husband, and their then-13-year-old daughter were arrested in 2001. She was sentenced to three years of forced labor, while her husband was sentenced to one year.

Ms. Zhao's young daughter was detained for eight months. She had to quit school shortly after her release. The taunting and discrimination from her teachers and classmates were too much for the 13-year-old to bear.

Her brother, then 17, also dropped out of school because of the persecution.

Their 92-year-old grandmother was greatly distressed to see how her family was being mistreated; her health deteriorated, and she was hospitalized twice.

Ms. Zhao Yingqin, Ms. Chen Fengzhen, Mr. Li Yongxi, and Mr. Li Jiulong

Ms. Zhao Yingqin (肇迎琴), 50, is a physician. She filed a joint complaint with her mother-in-law Ms. Chen Fengzhen (陈凤珍), 74, and her husband Mr. Li Jiulong (李久龙), 48.

Ms. Zhao was detained for over 11 months in 2000. Her father-in-law Mr. Li Yongxi (李永玺) and mother-in-law Ms. Chen were taken to a brainwashing center in 2002. Mr. Li was arrested in 2003 and had 5,000 yuan extorted from her by the authorities.


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 dyrubg 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.
