(Minghui.org) Since the end of May 2015, over 200,000 Falun Gong practitioners and their family members have filed criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin, the former Chinese dictator, for initiating the persecution Falun Gong.
The complaints were mailed to the Supreme People's Procuratorate and the Supreme People's Court.
Citizens in many cities in China have signed petitions that support suing or investigating those who have persecuted Falun Gong practitioners.
In the counties near Zhangjiakou City, 6,310 people signed the petition that calls for suing Jiang.
Also, 2,184 people signed a petition that demands that Jiang, Zhou Yongkang, and Bo Xilai be investigated for their involvement in the heinous crime of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.
“Yes, let's sue him. We should have done it a long time ago,” said one Chinese man while holding the petition in his hand. He signed his name and put his fingerprint.
A city official in his 60s from Zhnajiakou said, “Jiang yielded a territory 40 times the size of Taiwan to Russia. He is a traitor. We should have sued him long ago.”
In 1999, Jiang Zemin, as head of the Chinese Communist Party, overrode other members of the Politburo Standing Committee 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 Communist regime established an extralegal security organization, 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 its citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are now exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
