Report from Agence France Presse: Belgian Falun Gong Practitioners Sue Jiang Zemin for Crimes against Humanity

AFP reported the following on August 19th:

Based on Belgium’s new law, six Falun Gong practitioners formally sued China’s former leader, Jiang Zemin, for his crimes against humanity.

According to the report, the lawsuit will be formally submitted to the federal prosecutors on Wednesday. Georges-Henri Beauthier, a Belgian lawyer representing the plaintiffs, stated the defendant in the lawsuit is China’s military head, Jiang Zemin, who committed torture, crimes against humanity, and genocide. The lawsuit is based on a law that the Belgian Parliament passed on August 5th.

The report said that the new law covers “serious violation of international human rights law.” If the alleged crimes are related to Belgium, the lawsuit can be instituted.

In the report, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, Matthias Slaats, a Belgian computer programmer, said that the lawsuit completely met with the new law requirements.
