(Minghui.org) Ten Falun Gong practitioners from Shifang City were detained for filing criminal complaints against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist regime, starting on October 9, 2015. The practitioners were detained at the Shifang City Detention Center for different lengths, ranging from one to two weeks.
Officers from the Luoshui Town Police Station went to Ms. Chen Wenying’s home on October 9. The police asked her about her criminal complaints against Jiang. She went with them to the police station where she was detained for five days.
Officers from the Jiandi Town Police Station went to Ms. Zhong Qifen’s home on October 13, 2015, to inquire about her complaints against Jiang. The police arrested Ms. Zhong and her husband Mr. Lu Pinggang. Both were detained for 15 days.
Officers from the Luoshui Town Police Station arrested 60-year-old Ms. Xiao Kaiqun, a small business owner, on October 15, and detained her for 15 days.
Ms. Liu Fengyu, in her 60s, was arrested by officers from the Mazu Town Police Station on October 15. She was detained for five days.
Ms. Xu and Ms. Yang from Jiandi Town were arrested on October 15 and detained for five days.
Ms. Zhang Qinghui, 50, was arrested by officers from the Yuanshi Town Police Station on October 19. The police ransacked her home and confiscated Falun Gong books, materials, and other personal belongings. She was detained for 15 days.
Ms. Wan Gufen, in her 40s, was arrested by officers from the Mazu Town Police Station on October 19, and she was detained for 15 days.
Mr. Chen Zhongjun was also arrested and detained.
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 many Falun Gong practitioners in 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 allows for citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are now exercising that right to file criminal complaints against the former dictator.
