Falun Gong Practitioners’ Lawyers Jointly Request To Investigate Case Staff
Three Shenyang Falun Gong practitioners Yu Ming, Li Dongxu, Gao Jingqun’s illegal trial caused continuous attention among the international community and mainland people.
Recently, the lawyers hired by three practitioners jointly requested to investigate the illegal acts of Liaoning Procuratorate case staffs.
It has been more than one year for Shenyang Falun Gong practitioners Yu Ming, Li Dongxu and Gao Jingqun’s illegal detention at Shenyang First Detention Center.
According to the Minghui report, from 30th August, the local political and legal committee arrested more than ten Shenyang Falun Gong practitioners including Yu Ming, Li Dongxu and Gao Jingqun in the name of maintaining stability.
During the time, Yu Ming escaped but was kidnapped again by Shenyang State Security.
During one year of illegal detention, Yu Ming was charged for the offense three times and denied to meet lawyers many times.
Previously, it is said that, Yu Ming has been re-educated through labor three times and lost freedom for 9 years long.
Another illegally detained victim, Gao Jingqun is Shenyang Shenhai thermal power plant worker, aged 45. She lives in Huanggu District in Shenyang and practices Falun Dafa since 1997.
On Aug. 30, Shenyang state security police broke into Gao Jingqun’s house and illegally grabbed her personal items. Then she was taken to the police station and transferred to a detention center the next afternoon.
In early November of the same year, the State Security illegally interrogated Gao Jingqun in a special room from 9pm to 4pm. They forced Gao Jingqun violently to let her say the cell phone was from Yu Ming and they cleaned Yu Ming’s cell phone, also pasted Falun Gong content onto it. Then the police pushed Gao Jingqun to sign on some blank pieces of paper.
Human rights lawyer Dong QianYong: We believe the accusation is invalid because it’s a personal right to purchase a cell phone and send out their own persecution experience or the truth of their belief. No matter if they exist or not, they are not crimes.
45 year old Li Dongxu, who graduated from Northeastern University of Finance is unmarried.
Nov. 11 afternoon, Li Dongxu was kidnapped by a group of plainclothes Shenyang state security officers when he was working at Shenyang East oil Authority.
Currently Li Dongxu is still being detained at the Shenyang Detention Center.
During this period, several Falun Gong practitioners have suffered all kinds of torture.
It is said that during the detention, Yu Ming suffered a high-voltage electric shocks, tied to the death bed, force-feeding and so on.
According to the indictment from her and relatives, to makethe achievement, the guards were crazy to beat her face, hit her chest with mineral water bottles.
The heart tearing pain made Gao Jingqun almost suffocate, and even the world’s most extreme pain cannot describe it.
During the illegal interrogation, unmarried Li Dongxu was naked in front of males. The other three police officers armed with electric batons threatened to electrically shock her genitals and another police officer slapped her face four to five times.
Human rights lawyer Dong QianYong: Our lawsuit includes these situations, such as Li Dongxu was naked and shocked. Per our understanding, they suffered torture and forced confession.
Jinan lawyer Li Zhongwei: Per current situation, the most serious torture is forced confession. We cannot talk in detail because there is no hearing yet. But we certainly request the court not to adopt the forced confession notes as evidence.
According to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rules in August 2013 from the Central Political and Law Commission: public security a has life time responsible for the quality of case investigation, judges, prosecutors, police officers will be life-long responsible for the case investigation within the duties. People committed torture, violently forced confession, concealing evidence and other acts of forgery will be severely punished according to the law.
Three Falun Gong practitioners and their lawyers said they would safeguard their legitimate rights, request not guilty and severe punishments on persecutors.
The party relatives submitted accusation letter to the Supreme Court, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, the Liaoning Supreme Court, the Provincial Procuratorate, Shenyang Intermediate People’s Court, the Intermediate Procuratorate. They strongly requested the investigation on the accused people’s malfeasance for the legal responsibility and legal sanctions.
It has been more than 15 years for CCP’s brutal persecution on Falun Gong. However, many lawyers pointed out Falun Gong belief is completely legal in China, but the persecution is illegal.
