Lawsuits Against Jiang Zemin Well Supported in Taiwan
(Minghui.org) The recent flood of lawsuits against the former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin for persecuting Falun Gong has received the widespread support in Taiwan.
Since May, over 165,000 Falun Gong practitioners in China and overseas filed criminal complaints against Jiang. According to Chinese criminal procedure law, any individual with knowledge of a crime can submit a criminal report to the Chinese Supreme Procuratorate and Court.
Tens of thousands of Taiwanese citizens have signed a criminal report form.
Lawyer in Miaoli: Bringing Jiang Zemin to Justice Will Protect Human Rights
Mr. Li Chenhua, a lawyer from Miaoli, said he is encouraged by the lawsuits and the fact that more than ten thousand Miaoli citizens have signed criminal report forms in support.
Mr. Li Chenhua strongly supports the lawsuits against Jiang.
Mr. Li said: “I respect those who have filed the lawsuits against Jiang. Falun Gong practitioners try to bring the beauty of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to society, but have been persecuted. Bringing Jiang Zemin to justice will highlight what is right and what is wrong, and will protect human rights.”
The mayor of Toufen Town, Mr. Hsu Dingchen, called upon more Chinese people to support the lawsuits.
A long-term Falun Gong supporter, Mr. Hsu said, “The Chinese state-sanctioned organ harvesting from Falun Gong is horrifying. I strongly support the lawsuits against Jiang, the main culprit of the persecution.”
“I am glad to join the movement by signing a criminal report form. Jiang's crime of organ harvesting is unforgivable, and he should be punished,” Mr. Hsu said. “I hope the Chinese people will one day enjoy freedom and human rights, and I hope the Taiwanese government will take actions to help Falun Gong practitioners.”
