(Minghui.org) When Falun Dafa practitioners in Nanchong City, Sichuan Province, recently prepared to mail out formal criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin, post office staff refused to accept the documents, citing orders from the Nanchong Domestic Security Division.
Postal staff told the practitioners that they were not to accept any such lawsuits and not to process such mail if already taken. The staff also told practitioners that all the post offices in Nanchong City had received this order and that it was not clear whether it was the same in other areas.
Details of two instances of unlawful mail interception are provided below.
Ms. Chen Ping
Practitioner Ms. Chen Ping mailed her complaint against Jiang Zemin on May 31, 2015. Instead of sending the lawsuit materials to the Supreme People’s Procuratorate as required by law, post office staff sent the document package to the local police station in early August, who then provided copies to the leaders of Ms. Chen’s work unit and to her husband. Ms. Chen’s husband was shaken by the implicit police threat and left work early to confront his wife.
Ms. Chen went to the local police station to inquire about why the materials she was legally mailing were taken to the local police station and given to her work unit and her husband.
“It’s my right as a citizen to sue Jiang Zemin,” she said, “and it’s illegal for you to leak my case information and put pressure on my husband. I didn’t sue you, because you are also victims in the persecution of Falun Dafa, which Jiang Zemin initiated.”
“I will mail the complaint again,” she added. “And if you do such a thing again, I will sue you as well.”
Mr. Wang Daode and Ms. Huang Ziping
A complaint mailed on May 31 by Mr. Wang Daode and Ms. Huang Ziping of Nanchong City was also intercepted by the post office and delivered to the local police station.
On the morning of August 10, a group of officers showed up at the train station where Mr. Wang worked. They questioned whether Mr. Wang had sent a complaint to the Supreme Procuratorate, asking who wrote the materials and how they knew about the organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Three days later Mr. Wang got a call requesting that his wife, Ms. Huang, go to the Xiaolong Police Station. When Ms. Huang, accompanied by her husband, went to the police station, they were met by several people in the office, including Wang Xiaochuan from the Nanchong City 610 Office, Deng Zhongheng, head of the town 610 Office, and Hu Chengbin, the local Internet administrator.
Ms. Huang confirmed that she mailed the complaint on May 31. When asked why she was suing Jiang Zemin, she told them that she has wanted to sue him since 1999 when the persecution of Falun Dafa began, but that the time was not right until now, after current state leader Xi Jinping proposed: “… all cases must go through the legal process, and all mishandled cases must be corrected.”
After a lengthy discussion, Ms. Huang told the officers, “I hope that you will process my complaint very soon, and I hope that you all find the courage to hold Jiang responsible for his crimes.”
The officers did not ask her or her husband to sign the meeting record, and instead let the couple go home without further incident.
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. More have been tortured 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, the “610 Office,” on June 10, 1999. The organization overrides police forces and the judicial system in carrying out Jiang’s directive regarding Falun Gong: to ruin their reputations, cut off their financial resources, and destroy them physically.
Chinese law now allows for citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
