(Minghui.org) Ms. Bi Jinli, who works at the China Netcom Corporation, Dalian Branch, was illegally arrested on March 15, 2016 for suing Jiang Zemin, the former Chinese leader who initiated the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999.

Three police officers from the Renmin Road Police Branch Station in Dalian City went to Ms. Bi's workplace, China Netcom Corporation, Dailan Branch, around 10:00 a.m. on March 15, 2016. They took Ms. Bi to the police station, saying they wanted to question her.

She was detained for 24 hours. Later she was sent to the Yaojia Detention Center and charged with “gathering and distributing letters to sue Jiang Zemin.”

Because Ms. Bi refused to give up Falun Gong, six days later she was sent to the brainwashing center located inside the detention center. Ms. Bi's family was told she would face three years in prison if she still refuses to give up her belief after the one-month brainwashing session.

This brainwashing center is operated by the Dalian Municipal Committee, which specifically targets highly-educated, white collar Falun Gong practitioners. In the first part of March of this year, 28 Falun Gong practitioners were illegally arrested in Dalian City for suing Jiang Zemin.


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 in 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.
