A Thousand People in Zhangjiakou Sign Petition in Support of Lawsuits Against Jiang Zemin
(Minghui.org) More than one hundred people in Zhangjiakou City filed joint criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin in October 2015. Since then, an additional 1160 people have signed petitions in support of the lawsuits. A total of 1283 people have sued or signed petitions in support of investigations into Jiang Zemin, Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai, and their involvement in organ harvesting atrocities from living Falun Gong practitioners.
One elderly man wrote on the back of a petition form: “Jiang is evil. Not only did he persecute good people, he also ordered the harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.”
“Jiang did nothing good while he was in position. He had many corrupt officials. He harvested organs from living practitioners. He is worse than an animal. We should have arrested him long time ago,” another man in his sixties said.
In 1999, Jiang Zemin, then head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), overrode other Politburo standing committee members and launched the violent suppression of Falun Gong.
The persecution has killed countless Falun Gong practitioners during the past 16 years. Many have been murdered for their organs. Others have been imprisoned and tortured for their belief. Jiang Zemin is directly responsible for the inception and continuation of this brutal persecution.
Under Jiang's direction, the Chinese Communist Party established an extralegal security force, the 610 Office, on June 10, 1999. The organization overrides the police and judicial system. The 610 Office carries out Jiang's directive to eradicate Falun Gong: ruin practitioners' reputations, cut off their financial resources, and destroy them physically.
Jiang stepped down as head of the CCP in 2002, but he has exerted much power from the shadows through a network of officials he put in place.
Chinese law now allows citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
