(Clearwisdom.net) In recent weeks it has been alleged that two high level CCP officials, Wang Lijun and Bo Xilai, have been fighting with each other. Their power struggle is one of the most talked about issues among Chinese people today. As the facts of corruption are revealed, it is likely that they will ultimately face justice.

Regardless of the result, one thing is certain: Both of these men have been actively and aggressively participating in the persecution of Falun Gong. For the past ten plus years, the suppression of Falun Gong escalated and intensified in the areas they worked. Wang and Bo have reportedly orchestrated mass arrests and been responsible for the brainwashing, torture, and imprisonment of many.

Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun Were the Masterminds Behind the Mass Brainwashing of Falun Gong Practitioners in Chongqing

According to Minghui/Clearwisdom website reports, Bo Xilai spent 17 billion yuan on the installation of 500,000 cameras after he arrived at his post in Chongqing in 2007. In 2009, Bo Xilai appointed Wang Lijun to be chief of the Chongqing City Police Department. Reports of arrests, torture, and imprisonment of Falun Gong practitioners in Chongqing escalated.

According to Minghui reports, Bo Xilai claimed to bolster efforts to make Falun Gong practitioners renounce their belief in Falun Gong. He shortened the 2010-2012 three-year plan to two years for favorable results and political gain. In the time that Bo Xilai served in Chongqing, nearly 20 Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death.

In 2011, more than 360 Falun Gong practitioners in Chongqing faced varying degrees of persecution. 277 of them were arrested, 22 were sentenced to forced labor, and more than 70 faced harassment or threats from the police or their local residence committee. The police ransacked most of the practitioners' homes. In some districts and counties, every Falun Gong practitioner was victimized.

In addition to the local police, many people were hired to monitor practitioners around the clock. In 2009, 188 Falun Gong practitioners were either arrested, detained, or had their homes ransacked. Six people were tortured to death, 18 were imprisoned, 76 were incarcerated in forced labor camps, and five were sent to psychiatric institutions.

For example, Mr. Tang Yi, a senior railway engineer and a local resident in Anju Town, Tongliang Township, Chongqing City, faced long-term imprisonment because of his faith in Falun Gong, according to Minghui. He was tortured with many cruel methods. In April 2009, Mr. Tang was paralyzed from the waist down, became incontinent, and his lower body began to fester. He died at the age of 46, on September 22, 2009, as a result of the torture inflicted on him.

Mr. Liu Guangdi, a senior engineer in his 60s, was another victim of persecution in Chongqing. He was arrested during the 2008 Olympic Games and sentenced to one year at the Xishanping Forced Labor Camp. He was severely tortured and given large quantities of unknown drugs. He became critically ill and died on September 25, 2010, as a result of the torture he endured at the camp.

Bo Xilai Has Faced Lawsuits Accusing Him of Genocide and Torture in Many Countries

For his role in China's persecution of Falun Gong, Bo Xilai has been served with both civil and criminal lawsuits in 12 countries. An Australian court found him guilty in a trial where he refused to appear. In November 2009, a Spanish court filed a lawsuit against Bo for genocide and torture.

In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police added 45 Chinese government officials to its watch list because of their involvement in the persecution of Falun Gong. These Chinese government officials could face denial of entry to Canada, repatriation, or lawsuits. Bo Xilai was included in this this list. It was said that Bo Xilai would accompany Hu Jintao on his tour of the United States and Canada in 2005, but Bo did not make the trip because he had been served a lawsuit on his trip the year before.

According to Minghui reports, Bo Xilai ordered the systematic arrest, imprisonment, and torture of practitioners while he was the mayor of Dalian City. As a result, Dalian became one the cities where the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners was most severe. The Dalian Forced Labor Camp, notorious for torturing and sexually abusing Falun Gong practitioners, was praised by CCP officials as one of the most "progressive institutions" for its "renowned achievements in 'reform' education." The Dalian Police Department was given a level-one award for its achievements in suppressing Falun Gong.

According to the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG), while Bo Xilai was posted in Liaoning Province, some of the most severe persecution of Falun Gong occurred there. Masanjia Forced Labor Camp and Dalian Forced Labor Camp were notorious for inventing brutal methods of torture and inflicting them on imprisoned practitioners.

Former Canadian MP and Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) David Kilgour cited a piece of evidence in his report on the CCP's live organ harvesting on May 24, 2007: "The wife of a surgeon revealed the organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners after her husband confessed to removing corneas from 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners at a hospital in Liaoning province while Bo was governor."

Wang Lijun Directly Responsible for Organ Harvesting Atrocities Inflicted On Falun Gong Practitioners

According to a witness, while Wang Lijun was chief of the Jinzhou Police Department, he masterminded and orchestrated large-scale arrests of Falun Gong practitioners.

For example, in the early morning of February 25, 2008, the police in Guta, Linghe, and Taihe simultaneously arrested nearly 30 practitioners. They ransacked their homes and confiscated their personal belongings and more than 100,000 yuan in cash. Lu Tao, an officer from the Taihe Police Department, brutally interrogated Ms. Liu Fengmei, Mr. Qu Chengye, and Mr. Huang Cheng. Mr. Huang later was tortured to death in Panjin Prison at the age of 56.

Evidence shows that Wang Lijun also participated in the live organ harvesting. In 2002, the witness, who was working for the police system of Liaoning Province, participated in illegal arrests and torture of Falun Gong practitioners (see reference [1]). The witness was an armed police guard by that time and witnessed two military surgeons remove the organs from one living female Falun Gong practitioner. On April 9, 2002, the Liaoning Police Department sent for two military surgeons, one from the General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region of People's Liberation Army and the other one a graduate of the Second Military Medical University. They transferred this practitioner to the General Hospital of Shenyang Military Region. While she was fully conscious, without using any anesthetics, they harvested her heart, kidneys, and other organs. The organs were harvested under the jurisdiction of Wang Lijun, the police chief of Jinzhou Police Department.

The witness added that he heard Wang Lijun say that we "must eradicate all [Falun Gong practitioners]." (see reference [1]) The witness had previously arrested and tortured Falun Gong practitioners before he came forward with the reports. Institutions in Liaoning Province severely persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. According to Minghui.org, there have been 406 confirmed deaths of Falun Gong practitioners in Liaoning Province.

In an academic article entitled "An Empirical Study on the Donors' Organs after Drug Injections," Wang Lijun is listed as a co-author although he has no medical background. Was he given credit as the supplier of human bodies for the study?

In Jinzhou, Liaoning Province, at least 500 Falun Gong practitioners have been arrested. 71 have been tortured to death, and more than 30 have become handicapped according to Minghui.

Goodness is Rewarded, Evil is Punished

According to a random health report from China's Police Department, more than 70% of the police force failed their physicals, 30% of the police suffer from heart disease, 40% had high blood pressure, 30% had gastric diseases, 20% had arthritis, and 16% had hepatitis. 80% of those surveyed want to quit their job.

After Wang Lijun's recent visit to the No.3 Military Medical University in Chongqing, a Chinese blogger (unconfirmed source) posted the findings. The blogger wrote that Wang Lijun slept only 2 to 3 hours a day and was so worried that he would leave the lights on when he slept. Also that Wang later became hysterical and had thoughts of suicide.

Someone commented online, "Wang Lijun killed too many people and did too many bad things. Now he is suffering from karmic retribution."
