[Epoch Times, September 15, 2022](Reported by Epoch Times reporters Luo Qiong and Chang Chun) Minghui.com reported that Xu Jiaxin, Secretary of the Party Leadership Group and President of the Jilin Provincial High Court, was included in the latest list of persecutors. On July 20 this year, Falun Gong practitioners from 38 countries have submitted this list to the governments of their host countries, requesting that these people and their families be banned from entering the country and their assets frozen.
Minghui.com’s report pointed out that Xu Jiaxin committed a major crime: in 2020, the Jilin Provincial High Court ordered the “Ji Gao Law”.No. 226″ issued the “Notice on Further Strengthening the Trial of Xie Cult Criminal Cases”, which is illegal and unconstitutional, in order to deprive Falun Gong practitioners of their litigation rights and aggravate the persecution.
Human rights lawyer living in the United StatesWu ShaopingSaid to “Ji GaofaNo. 226” (hereinafter referred to as the “Jigao Document”) “is an illegal document and invalid regulations”, and this document also uses “the CCP’s political tricks” to stigmatize Falun Gong.
Minghui.com revealed the negative effects of this document. For example, on April 21, 2021, family members of Falun Gong practitioners saw this statement: “Strictly based on this document (note: refers to the “Jigao Law document”), lawyers represent cults Cases must be reviewed for eligibility, and in principle, they are not allowed to represent cult-related cases.”
From 2020 to 2021, the judge of Dehui Court in Changchun City deprived 12 Falun Gong practitioners including Zhao Xiulan and Gao Xiaoqi from Nong’an County, Changchun City, as the parties, of their defense rights, their family members’ right to observe, and the parties’ lawyers’ examination papers, based on the “Jigao Law Documents”. right. All 12 were wrongfully sentenced, with sentences ranging from two to 10 years.
The CCP is “governing the country by documents” rather than “governing the country by law”
Wu ShaopingIt is believed that the “Jigao Law Document” violates the “Constitution” and “Legislation Law” formulated by the CCP itself, and also directly violates the “Lawyers Law” and “Judges Law”.
“According to the “Legislation Law”, the high courts at the local level do not have the power to formulate laws and regulations, nor do they have the power to interpret laws in the judiciary, not to mention that this so-called provision directly violates the higher-level law (Note: The higher-effective law) , so this is an illegal document, an invalid provision.”
“But the CCP always says one thing does the other, and the laws and regulations formulated by the CCP themselves are not as good as a piece of paper in the eyes of the CCP. In real life, documents are often greater than laws, and county officials are not as good as present management.”
He also said that the CCP practiced “rule of documents” rather than “rule of law”. Although the CCP has gone through more than 40 years of so-called reform and opening up, it has never gotten rid of “barbarism”. “It is a destroyer of civilization, a stumbling block to social progress.”
The CCP’s Political Tricks – Stigmatization
The “Jigao Law Documents” obviously equates Falun Gong with “X-religion”. Wu Shaoping said that the CCP wants to suppress, suppress and arrest anyone, and the first thing it starts is slander. “Stigmatizing Falun Gong is a political trick of the CCP.”
He said that the CCP’s routine against Falun Gong is “to stink its reputation, ruin it economically, and destroy it physically.” Smearing and stigmatizing Falun Gong is the first thing it will do.
People who don’t know the truth should have a clear understanding of the stigma of the CCP, and don’t be deceived by its lies. He emphasized, “Under the CCP’s brainwashing education and propaganda, many people in China cannot access the real thing and are easily misled by the CCP. Therefore, we need to work together to spread the truth to the country.”
He also said that the CCP’s strategy can only work in the mainland, and it is difficult to succeed abroad. “Therefore, the CCP changed its strategy overseas and used big propaganda to publish all kinds of false propaganda, including buying European and American media, different self-media platforms and even Big V (Note: Weibo users with many fans). Everyone should take precautions to avoid being deceived.”
“Jiang Zemin’s claim that Falun Gong is an X religion is unfounded”
Before the CCP persecuted Falun Gong in July 1999, there was nowhere in any law or regulation that Falun Gong was a “cult”. On October 25, 1999, when Jiang Zemin was interviewed by a reporter from Le Figaro, he arbitrarily called Falun Gong a “cult”.
The Epoch Times previously reported that Zhang Zanning, a well-known mainland lawyer and professor of the Law School of Southeast University, said when defending the innocence of Falun Gong practitioners, “The suppression of Falun Gong was completely a decision made by Jiang Zemin. Before this decision, Falun Gong had existed for 8 years. During this period, no citizen or unit came to accuse or report the harm Falun Gong did to the society and to themselves, which shows that Falun Gong is not harmful.”
“Chinese law stipulates that criminal violations must be harmful to society. Without social harmfulness, there is no criminal violation. Therefore, in fact, Jiang Zemin’s accusation that Falun Gong is an X religion is not valid.”
“Jiang Zemin, a former CCP president, publicly called Falun Gong a religious organization to the French newspaper Le Figaro when he was in power.
Zhang Zanning believes: “The two high schools (the Supreme Court and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate) have issued an explanation for the cult. Specifically, it says how many leaflets Falun Gong practitioners have distributed and how many books they have collected, which undermines the implementation of the law. So this accusation is made by Jiang Zemin’s kidnapping of the two high schools. Come up with a wrong explanation.”
liberty house: Violent repression in the former cult label in the back
“liberty house“In the 2017 China Religious Freedom Report “The Battle for China’s Soul,” said, “(1999) in an internal file on June 7, Jiang Zemin clearly issued instructions to dismantle Falun Gong. “And this decision “is inconsistent with the previous investigation conclusion of the domestic security intelligence agency that Falun Gong does not pose any threat.”
Chinese state media and officials “seek to describe Falun Gong as a ‘cult’ that is harmful to society.” “International scholars have repeatedly concluded that Falun Gong does not have the characteristics of a cult.”
According to the report, the label of “cult” appeared in the CCP’s discourse a few months after Falun Gong was suppressed (Note: Jiang Zemin claimed in an interview with Le Figaro on October 25, 1999). “This shows that violent repression comes first and cult labels come after.”
The report quoted David Ownby, a well-known scholar of Chinese religion, as saying: “The labeling of Falun Gong as a so-called cult was intended to mislead from the very beginning, and the CCP authorities have thus cunningly used this rhetoric to erase Falun Gong’s appeal and The effectiveness of this group’s activities outside of China.”
The U.S. State Department pointed out in the 2017 International Religious Freedom Report that the CCP labels Falun Gong, Christianity and other groups as cults, “The (CCP) criminal law defines banned groups as ‘cult organizations’, whose members may be sentenced to life in prison. “.
David Kilgour, former director of Canada’s Asia-Pacific Department, senior member of parliament, and candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize, once wrote the article “Falun Gong is not a cult”, which was included in“Unprecedented Evil Persecution”book.
Kilgour wrote: “Jiang Zemin’s ‘biggest lie’ was that ‘Falun Gong is a cult’, which is reminiscent of the Rwandan government’s disapproval through party media before launching the nationwide genocide from April to June 1994. A message from the Tutsi minority. The Bolsheviks in Russia did something similar to their own list of ‘enemies of the party’ after the Communist October Revolution of 1917. Hitler’s Nazi Party after 1933, Also used it against different minorities, especially Jews in Germany.
“Since 1999, such a group of state media controlled by the party has carried out poisonous anti-Falun Gong propaganda throughout China without interruption, causing many Chinese citizens and foreigners to naively accept the party-state’s lies about Falun Gong and other matters. “
