Russian Courts Deliver Two Verdicts That Will Hopefully Help More Chinese People See the Truth

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has blocked the truth and deceived the Chinese people ever since it violently came to power sixty years ago. As a result, the Chinese people are deeply influenced by Party culture, and have become a product of the lies they've been told for decades. Even though many are aware of the widespread corruption and web of lies the CCP weaves, the vast majority of people in China remain unaware of how the CCP deceives them, let alone do they have any insight into the Party's evil nature.

The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party reveals the Party's villainous nature with shocking clarity. Most people who read the Nine Commentaries awaken to the book's revelations of the Party's true evil nature. Still, there are some who remain sceptical, asking lots of questions, "Is the CCP really that bad? How come there is nothing good about it? Does it not often claim it serves the people? Could it be that the Nine Commentaries is biased?"

It's not surprising that people hold such opinions. After all, the CCP has brainwashed the Chinese people with its warped principles for years. It might help to know what people in other countries think about the Nine Commentaries.

At the time of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, local prosecutors filed a lawsuit with the local court requesting a ban of the Nine Commentaries published in a Russian edition of The Epoch Times. This was in September 2009. Careful court investigations found nothing radical or illegal in the Nine Commentaries. In its verdict on April 6, 2010, court officials stated that the Nine Commentaries contain no radical or unlawful content and therefore it cannot be banned from transportation and storage. The prosecutors filed an appeal with the Sverdlovsk Oblast Court, which heard the case on June 10, 2010 and decided that same day that the Yekaterinburg court verdict must be upheld.

The verdicts say much about the Russian people, who have lived under two completely different political systems in the last 20 years. In the former Soviet Union, a communist regime ruled the land. Thus they are well equipped to judge whether communism is something bad or good.

The defence lawyer representing the Epoch Times said, "The Nine Commentaries received a lot of attention over the course of the trial. Yekaterinburg Court officials asked many experts to read the book and decide on the appropriateness of its content. The court was under a lot of political pressure but eventually made an impartial decision. And the Sverdlovsk Oblast Court upheld the original verdict on appeal."

Where did the pressure come from that precipitated this lawsuit in the first place? Our sources report that the CCP pressured the Yekaterinburg prosecutor to file the lawsuit. The case was filed in September 2009, around the same time of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting, so the timing was politically quite astute. But the courts carefully considered all the evidence and decided that the Nine Commentaries should continue to be available, despite the political pressure from the CCP to the contrary.

Hopefully there will soon come a day when the courts in China are able to set aside their allegiance to the Party and deliver a similarly unbiased opinion; the Nine Commentaries will sweep across the nation awakening the Chinese people from their decades-long Party-propaganda-induced slumber; and the senseless persecution of Falun Gong will come finally to an end.
