(Clearwisdom.net, November 4, 2005) On the morning of November 2, 2005, practitioners in Toronto gathered in front of the Chinese Consulate and read a Falun Dafa Association announcement to people inside and outside the consulate. They also announced that two high-level Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials were being sued in Canada for their participation in the persecution of Falun Gong after the publication of the announcement.
Practitioner Mr. Zhojin Zhang read the announcement aloud in both Chinese and English.
The announcement stated, "From today on, overseas Falun Gong practitioners will file civil or criminal lawsuits against all important government or CCP officials who participate in or continue to implement the persecution of Falun Gong and as a result, commit new crimes in addition to those they have already perpetrated against Falun Gong."
Mr. Zhang said, "Huang Huahua, Governor of Guangdong Province and Lin Yanzhi, Deputy Secretary of the Jilin Provincial CCP Committee, are two high-level CCP officials who are being sued in Canada for their participation in the persecution of Falun Gong after publication of the announcement. Lin is the first CCP official to be sued after making an unpublicized trip to outside of China. The lawsuit serves as a strong warning to all CCP officials who participate in the persecution of Falun Gong. When they leave China, we will initiate legal procedures to bring them to justice."
Mr. Kaiwen Yang from the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) said, "The WOIPFG has implemented a global monitoring system to track new persecution cases and announce investigation findings each week. Perpetrators and those who are responsible will be listed in the monitoring system. As soon as they leave China, they will face lawsuits."
The announcement pointed out, "Falun Gong is to save people, including people in all social statuses. Even for those who have committed wrongdoings, there is still an opportunity for them to abandon the evil path and choose to be good. For all those who have committed crimes against Falun Gong but want now to correct their mistakes, they can submit, under safe circumstances, a guarantee statement or regret letter to the Minghui website or to any regional Falun Dafa Association to be archived. We will not investigate the various crimes of those who are determined to correct their mistakes. However, we will continue to monitor their actions."
