The complaint alleges that Zhou Yongkang has the direct responsibility for the crimes of tortures against Falun Gong practitioners in China. The Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris received the following three complaints.

Delivering the complaints to the court The three complaints officially accepted by the court

The three Falun Gong practitioners are Ms Ying Dai living in Norway, Mr. Heping Li and Ms Zhengfang Mo living in the UK.

Ms Dai was the wife of a multi-millionaire in Shenzhen City. Due to practising Falun Gong, she was illegally sentenced to three years in a labour camp, after that, she was sentenced again for another two years in a labour camp. During the period of serving the sentences from March 2000 to January 2003, and from March 2003 to October 2004, Ms Dai experienced extremely severe persecution and was in danger of losing her life so that the CCP regime had to release her earlier. Ms Dai had been deprived of personal freedom for nearly four and half years. During these periods, she received brutal tortures, her left eye had lost the sight and her right eye has only 0.1 left due to prolonged electric shocking on her temples. The force feeding resulted in blood-spurting out of her mouth and nose. Male and female wicked police stripped her and another twenty more female Falun Gong practitioners’ clothes. She also suffered persecutions like sleep deprivation, brainwashing and forced to do hard labour and so on.

Ms Zhengfang Mo was arrested in Beijing in December 1999 due to appealing to the Beijing authority for justice for Falun Gong. During the period of the illegal detention, she was beaten by the wicked police from her hometown Chengdu, Sichuan Province, at that time she was pregnant for eight months.

Mr. Heping Li, graduated from Chongqing University, was imprisoned in Shiliping labour camp in Zhenjiang Province from August 2001 to June 2003 because of practicing Falun Gong. Zhou Yongkang acceded the Minister of Public Security at the end of 2002. He suffered torture like sleep deprivation, injecting harmful medicines, brainwashing, threatening and so on. Both his body and mind were very much damaged.

The defendant Zhou Yongkang, was appointed as the CCP’s general secretary of Sichuan Province from December 1999 to December 2002. During the course, Zhou actively impelled and directly participated in the persecution of Falun Gong and made Sichuan become one of the most severe provinces of persecuting Falun Gong in China. He was noted for slandering Falun Gong on various significant occasions many times, but also rewarded and encouraged individuals and departments of Sichuan police who actively carried out the persecution of Falun Gong and even gave concrete suggestions to some department to deploy the persecution methods against Falun Gong. On August the 27th 2001 while visiting the US, Zhou was sued for the crimes of torture, anti-humanity, illegal imprisonment etc. Zhou Yongkang was accused of the violation of the "Torture Victims Protection Act" and the "Alien Tort Claims Act ". The indictment was filed by a thirty six year-old Boston inhabitant, Mr. Haiying He.

Although Zhou Yongkang did not have any work experience in the public security field, but he closely followed Jiang Zeming’s policy of persecuting Falun Gong, therefore he was promoted to the post of Minister of Public Security of China as an exceptional case in December 2002, and also appointed as the vice-director of the Social Safety Comprehensive Administration Committee of the central government, the deputy CCP general secretary of the Political and Legal Committee of the central government. All of these titles give him full-fledged power to persecute Falun Gong.

According to the report of investigation about the 610 office” from the International Organisations for Investigation of the Persecution of Falun Gong, the 610 office, the dedicated department for persecuting Falun Gong, is subordinated to the Political and Legal Committee. The Political and Legal Committee itself, even its attributes are ambiguity, but has super authority over the public security, the judicature, education and the culture departments.

In December 2002, Zhou Yongkang took the post of the Public Security Minister. At the beginning of his duty, he continuously made speeches at nation wide videophone meetings to police system and at conferences to officials over bureau level in national police system to impel the strike of Falun Gong. He also made use of the opportunities of survey in each place all over the country to emphasise the “strict guarding” and “strict striking” against Falun Gong. Zhou Yongkang, using the name of Public Security Minister, also made recommendations and material rewards toward those individuals and groups who actively were involved in the persecution of Falun Gong.

In addition, under the name of “strict striking”, carrying out the comprehensive maintenance of social public security, striking the hostile influences inside and outside China, anti-terrorism, and maintaining stability, Zhou Yongkang many times coerced and made use of the police and judicial systems to conduct the persecution of Falun Gong, which resulted in the unceasingly escalation of the persecution. Since December 2002, the numbers of confirmed and documented cases of Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted to death are rapidly increasing from 600+ to 3000 approximately.

In summary, Zhou Yongkang is directly responsible for crimes of the persecution of Falun Gong in Sichuan Province as well as nation wide including the bloody persecution of the three plaintiffs.

The French Falun Dafa Association immediately informed the public media after handing the complaints to court. Agence France Presse (AFP) published a report immediately, some important media reprinted or contacted with Falun Gong practitioners to express their concern; Radio France International (RFI)’s Chinese department promptly broadcasted twice on the report to mainland China and the Great Paris area.
Falun Gong practitioners’ lawsuit against Zhou Yongkang enormously frightened the evil regime and gives a warning to those people who are still persecuting Falun Gong: Stop doing evil, be responsible for your own future.
