Falun Dafa Practitioner Incarcerated for Five Years Sues Jiang Zemin

June 09, 2015 | By a Minghui correspondent in China

(Minghui.org) A Falun Dafa practitioner, who was persecuted for her belief by being held in prison for 4 years and in a forced labor camp for one year, filed a criminal complaint against former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) head Jiang Zemin, part of another wave of lawsuits against Jiang.

Ms. Cao Fang, 61, in Jinchang City, Gansu Province, mailed her complaint via Express Mail Service (EMS) to the Supreme People’s Procuratorate on May 18, 2015.

Ms. Cao is suing Jiang for the crimes of genocide, torture, crimes against humanity, and deprivation of personal liberty and property, which caused enormous damage to her and millions of other Falun Dafa practitioners.

Since Jiang Zemin launched his campaign to suppress Falun Dafa in 1999, Ms. Cao’s home has been ransacked four times, she has been placed under administrative detention once and criminal detention twice, she was sentenced to prison for four years and to a forced labor camp for one year, and she suffered direct financial losses of 30,000 yuan (US $5,000). Details of her suffering were reported in an earlier Minghui article.


Jiang Zemin singlehandedly started the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999. Despite the disagreement of the other Politburo standing committee members, he took advantage of his position as head of the Chinese Communist Party and imposed his personal will to launch the persecution.

The persecution has led to the deaths of many Falun Gong practitioners over the past 16 years. More have been tortured and even killed for their organs. Jiang Zemin and his cohorts are directly responsible for the inception and continuation of the persecution.

Under Jiang’s personal direction, the Chinese Communist Party established a Party-based security organ, the 610 Office, on June 10, 1999. It is an extralegal organization that overrides the law to execute Jiang’s policy regarding Falun Gong: ruin their reputations, cut off their financial resources, and eliminate them physically.

Chinese law allows for citizens to be plaintiffs in criminal cases, and many practitioners are now exercising their legal right to file criminal complaints against Jiang.
