A friend who is a university professor and whom I had not seen for many years, came to my city for some business. She had heard what had happened to my relatives who practise Falun Dafa -- a couple who were forcibly arrested from their home leaving their elderly parents with no one to care for them, and who also had all their valuable property and cash stolen by the authorities. She also said, " I see that even before Jiang pays for the debts he incurred while suppressing the student movement, he now also owes a bloody debt brought about by the persecution of these kind people. I see clearly what is going on. I support you. I will practise Falun Gong in the future." She also told me to remain steadfast. Finally, she said to me, "I am glad for your righteous mind, and I believe that good and evil will meet their due return in the end."
Lawyer: "I refuse to go to court."
Falun Dafa practitioners are usually subjected to unjust, unfair trials and are sentenced to heavy prison terms. The relatives of a Falun Dafa practitioner who was scheduled to appear in court found a lawyer to defend him.
The upright lawyer told the relatives that it was no use to ask for help from a lawyer. With the persistent requests of the relatives, however, the lawyer accepted the case.
After a great deal of investigation the lawyer gained a deep understanding of Falun Dafa, and was very moved by the great compassion and great tolerance of this Falun Dafa practitioner.
He was indignant at the inhumane persecution that the practitioner had suffered. He helped the practitioner's relatives work on ideas for the defence and he also spoke up on behalf of the practitioner. On the day of the court proceedings, the lawyer said that he refused to go to court. If he were to attend, it was likely that he would play into the hands of Jiang. The Jiang regime might say, "See, we allow Falun Gong practitioners to request a lawyer" -- which could not be further from the truth.
