(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in Jakarta, Indonesia conducted group practice beside main roads in downtown business area on July 24, 2016. They also collected signatures on a petition reporting the crimes of China's former dictator Jiang for his crimes of genocide and torture of Falun Gong.

Many kind-hearted people signed the petition and commended the practitioners' peaceful effort to resist the state-sanctioned persecution.

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. The law also allows for people to report the crimes of governmental officials. Practitioners in many countries join the efforts to collect signatures to support the petition of jointly reporting Jiang's crimes to the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate in Beijing.
