Jiang Zemin Sued in Hong Kong

On June 28, two Hong Kong permanent residents, Chu O Ming and Fu Xueying, initiated legal proceedings in the High Court of Hong Kong SAR against former and current high-ranking Chinese communist officials Jiang Zemin, Li Lanqing, and Luo Gan for their role in carrying out a nationwide campaign to eradicate the Falun Gong faith.

Mr. Chu and Ms. Fu were individually arrested, secretly tried, and sentenced to Chinese prison for several years--Mr. Chu for attempting to sue Jiang in a Chinese court for masterminding the persecution against Falun Gong and Ms. Chu for distributing materials inside China which expose the persecution. While in custody, both were repeatedly beaten, tortured, and subjected to numerous brainwashing attempts.

Since 1999, the Chinese communist regime, under directions from Jiang, has enforced a nationwide ban on Falun Gong inside China and spread its anti-Falun Gong propaganda worldwide.

This is the 18th lawsuit in 17 countries around the world against Jiang, Li, and Luo. The first was filed in United States federal court in 2002.
