New York, July 19, 2003] According to a statement issued by Falun Dafa Information Center, Jiang Zemin, China's former president, has been sued in a U.S. court for crimes against humanity and genocide in his persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.

This legal action now has the support of dozens of U.S. Congressional delegates as well as some celebrities. If convicted, Jiang would face criminal charges in the U.S. much in the same way that Marcos, the former Phillippines president, would be dealt with in accordance with the U.S. law. And Jiang wouldn't be able to travel to the U.S. This legal action has drawn enormous interest from the Chinese community in the U.S., as many see the hope of bringing justice to those in China who have violated the code of law in the U.S. But there is one condition for such legal action to be effective--the defendent must be on U.S. soil in order to carry out the decision of the U.S. court.
