Letter from a Reader: On the "Law" Used to Persecute Falun Gong in China
November 29, 2002
Dear Editor: How do you do!
I often read the stories on Dafa web sites about how courts in China sentenced Falun Gong practitioners based on such and such regulations of the law. I didn't know what law they were based on. Not long ago, through a reliable source, I got to know which "law document" the sentences were based on. After reading the document, I found it was very high sounding, but no items in the document dared to clearly point to Falun Gong. It's a typical sneaky political game. There are some detailed indexes in the document, such as sentencing to a term of forced labor or prison based on how many flyers the defendant distributed. The indexes themselves are against the Chinese constitution and international human rights conventions.
Now is the time to clarify the truth to the Chinese people on a large scale. I would kindly suggest that the editors organize those practitioners who have a background in law to write some articles from the viewpoint of the law to expose Jiang's regime in its violations of the law. This can exhort those that deal with the law and public security to not violate the law while executing the law and to avoid becoming chief offenders or accomplices in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. At the same time, I suggest you write articles to the associated international organizations to expose how Jiang's regime has systematically persecuted Falun Gong practitioners.
In the "law document" that explains the "law" and is used by the courts in China to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, the first part is called "The Interpretation of Some Implementation of Law on Criminal Cases Involving Organizing and Utilizing X Religion; from the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorial Court." The other part is called, "The Interpretation of Some Implementation of Law on Criminal Cases Involving Organizing and Utilizing X Religion; from the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorial Court, Part II."
