Doctor Forced into Homelessness: “Morality and conscience are more valuable than reputation and money”
(Minghui.org) In June 2015, Ms. Zhang Lufang, a Falun Gong practitioner and doctor from Xiaoshan District, Hangzhou City filed a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin, former head of the communist regime, for the persecution she suffered.
Ms. Zhang Lufang was arrested and detained for two weeks by police for practicing Falun Gong. The hospital where she worked fired her because she refused to give up her belief. Her residential registration was canceled. She was forced into homelessness and her cell phone is monitored.
Below are excerpts as documented in Ms. Zhang's legal complaint.
Arrest and Illegal Conviction
Officers Gao Liming and Ou Wensheng from the local Domestic Security Division arrested me at my work place, Zhejiang Xiaoshan Hospital, on March, 25, 2015. They did not show any identification or arrest warrant. They claimed that the hospital officials were notified of my arrest, when in fact it was not true.
I was taken to the Beigan Police Station, Xiaoshan District. Then, the police took me to my home, ransacked it and confiscated my Falun Gong books, Falun Gong informational materials, computer, printer and other personal items. I talked to them about Falun Gong, but they refused to listen.
Then, they took me back to the police station where they interrogated me and charged me with “utilizing an evil cult to disturb the public order and hurt others' health,” a generic term they use when arresting practitioners. I refused to sign any of the documents.
They detained me for 7 days and fined me 1,000 yuan. I refused to sign the detention documents. Then, I was given a 15-day detention. Again, I refused to sign any of the detention documents.
My family and fellow practitioners called and asked them to release me. They said that my family could come and pick me up. When my family arrived they claimed that I was not there. After my family left, they took me directly to Xiaoshan District Detention Center.
During my detention, the 610 Office and officers from the Domestic Security Division interrogated me several times. They threatened me and demanded that I renounce my belief, which I refused. I was detained for 15 days.
The hospital informed me that they had received oral instructions from the Xiaoshan District Political and Legal Affairs Committee and Xiaoshan District Health Bureau that I could not work unless I gave up Falun Gong. The Xiaoshan District Health Bureau canceled my civil servant status. Then, my residential registration in Xiaoshan District was canceled. I am now an illegal resident in my hometown.
I had acute gastric ulcer, and had been vomiting blood for the past decade. I also suffered from frequent herpes zoster, a contagious rash caused by the chickenpox virus, and I also had stomach pain. My illnesses brought me much pain, physically and mentally. I could not find a cure, nor could the many well known doctors I consulted. I could only take a lot of medication to ease some of the symptoms.
Then, I learned that a late stage liver cancer patient recovered after practicing Falun Gong in the spring of 2014. I decided to give Falun Gong a try. Within a short time I no longer suffered from the symptoms of any of my illnesses. This was extraordinary.
Falun Gong Taught Me to Be a Better Person
Once I started practicing Falun Gong I followed Falun Gong's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I treat everyone with kindness and always consider others first.
I became energetic and I did any job my supervisor assigned to me. I treated every patient with kindness and was well liked by my colleagues and patients.
After practicing Falun Gong I learned that morality and conscience are more valuable than reputation and money. Falun Gong taught me to be a better person.
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 thousands of Falun Gong practitioners over the past 16 years. They have been tortured to death 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 called the “610 Office,” for the date it was established. The 610 office has overriding authority over all other police and security forces as well as the judicial system. Their sole purpose it to carry out Jiang's persecution of Falun Gong.
Jiang’s decree regarding Falun Gong is to ruin practitioners' reputations, cut off their financial resources, and destroy them physically.
Chinese law allows for citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases. Many practitioners are now exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
