French Judge Meets Practitioner to Discuss Lawsuit Against Leader of “Chinese Gestapo”

On January the 28th 2004 in the Court of Justice in Paris, the French judge dealing with the lawsuit filed against Li Lanqing, the head of the 610 Office*, had an appointment with a French Falun Gong practitioner who is one of the four plaintiffs. She was accompanied by he lawyer.

The meeting lasted an hour and a half during which the judge read the complaint and asked the plaintiff if she had any other information to add. In this meeting, the judge was also informed that another complaint has just been filed against the Chinese Minister of Culture Sun Jiazheng, for the Crime of Torture and the inciting of hatred through propaganda against Falun Gong.

The Dafa practitioner was asked by the judge to explain why she had filed the lawsuit. She answered by explaining more about the persecution of Falun Gong, how widespread, systematic and criminal the brutal suppression of practitioners in China is, and how the ex-President and his regime try to impose this abuse of human rights on other countries. She conveyed that France and every other democratic country have a moral responsibility toward what can be officially described as “Genocide" and that this is not a Chinese issue, but an international question.

The judge said that she understood the meaning of the first complaint, which she had studied in detail, and that she would do her job independent of any diplomatic of political influence, wherever it came from. She also shared her understanding and determination to do the job as best she could.

After the appointment, the lawyer told her client that she was surprised there had been no need to discuss the case in detail because the judge already had a good understanding of the importance to bring these persecutors to justice.
