(Minghui.org) A high-ranking official recently filed a criminal complaint against the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Jiang Zemin, with the Chinese Supreme People's Court and Procuratorate for launching the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

When one official heard about the suit, he said that Jiang Zemin’s days were numbered if even a high-ranking official like that had leveled accusations against him.

Another person said that those who were involved the persecution should think twice about what they were doing and stop.

More than 200,000 Falun Gong practitioners have filed criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin since May 2015. After they mailed them, many were harassed or even sentenced for exercising their legal right to complain.

After this complaint was filed, eight men from the local police station, 610 Office, and residential committee went to his house to investigate.

“Party secretary,” asked one of them, “did you sue Jiang Zemin?”

“Yes, I did,” he freely admitted, “and let me explain why. First, before the persecution of Falun Gong began, the media had nothing but good to say about Falun Gong. After Qiao Shi, one of the members of politburo committee, had Falun Gong investigated, he wrote a report that confirmed that Falun Gong was very good and that practicing it would benefit the entire country.

“Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Gong out of jealousy. He was jealous of the respect that Falun Gong practitioners, including some high-ranking officials in the central government, have for Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong.

“It is my right to sue Jiang Zemin. I have been practicing Falun Gong for over 20 years, and I know exactly what Falun Gong is.

“Jiang used his power to attack and slander Falun Gong. Over the past 20 years, the persecution has caused enormous damage to our country.

“The amount of money and energy funneled into persecuting Falun Gong is obscene—more than enough to fund a war. Setting up the 610 Office destroyed the rule of law and the stability of society and human moral values. I filed that complaint because I feel it is my responsibility for the good of my country.

“You know, before Jiang Zemin retired, he changed the number of politburo committee members from seven to nine, and even though he was already retired, all the important issues of the country still had to go through him.

“If the persecution Falun Gong can't be resolved, our country will stagnate.”

As everyone listened carefully, some of them nodded, while others looked deep in thought. In the end, they didn't say anything and left.
