Notice to Investigat the Involvement in the Persecution of Falun Gong by Sun Jinlong, Deputy Secretary of Hunan Provincial CCP Committee
Sun Jinlong (1962- ) is the current deputy secretary of the Hunan Provincial Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Committee. Previously, Sun was the secretary of the Central Committee of Chinese Communist Youth League (CYL) and President of All-China Youth Federation. Sun also held various positions in Anhui Province, including member of the Anhui Provincial CCP Standing Committee, Secretary of the Anhui Provincial Political & Legal Affairs Committee (PLAC), Party Committee secretary of Hefei City, and deputy secretary of the Anhui Party Committee.
Ever since former CCP head Jiang Zemin started the genocidal persecution of Falun Gong, Sun Jinlong aggressively participated in the persecution of Falun Gong. Sun worked hard to incite hatred among young people and mobilized all resources against Falun Gong in China. In part, this caused the persecution in the regions, where Sun Jinlong held positions, to intensify. As of May 2004, it was verified that at least 14 Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death in Hunan Province. Therefore, Sun Jinlong is suspected of committing the Crime of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity due to his active participation in the persecution of Falun Gong.
From 1999 to 2003, Sun Jinlong was the Secretary of the Central Committee of Chinese Communist Youth League, and (Vice) President of All-China Youth Federation. When the persecution started in July 1999, Sun Jinlong utilized all the public events to propagate lies and incite hatred among young people through the CYL organizations. Sun attempted to prevent young people from knowing the facts about Falun Gong.
On July 23, 1999, Sun Jinlong, then Secretary of the Central Committee of CYL and Vice President of All-China Youth Federation, attended a meeting in Beijing on “carrying out CCP policies to handle Falun Gong issues.” Sun slandered Falun Gong using standard CCP propaganda words, requiring all members of CYL to not practice Falun Gong and not take part in Falun Gong activities.
On January 19, 2001, a meeting “to expose and criticize Falun Gong” was held in Beijing. Members of the All-China Youth Federation attended. Sun Jinlong gave a speech about the “substantial success in the campaign against Falun Gong, under the guidance of CCP Central Committee.” Sun defamed Falun Gong using false claims such as “creating chaos,” “destroying stability,” and “tools of anti-China forces,” etc. Sun also demanded all members of CYL to fight a “serious fight” against Falun Gong.
On Feb. 1, 2001, a few days after the “Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation” Hoax, Sun Jinlong continued to defame Falun Gong at a meeting in Beijing organized by the Central Committee of CYL and All-China Youth Federation.
On Feb. 5, 2001, during a conference “condemning” Falun Gong, organized by Social and Legal Affairs Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), Sun Jinlong spoke with “strong language” to defame Falun Gong, concocting a propaganda weapon to demonize Falun Gong through the alleged Tiananmen Square Self-immolation fabricated by CCP. He mobilized all members of CPPCC to fight against Falun Gong.
On April 11, 2001, Sun Jinlong spoke at national working conference of the CYL, again urged all attendees to fight against Falun Gong.
On July 29, 2002, Sun Jinlong spoke at national conference of provincial level CYL officers. His speech emphasized on the “transformation” (brainwash) of Falun Gong practitioners, saying that the fight against Falun Gong was a long term struggle due to its complication and severity.
From 2003 to April 2013, Sun Jinglong was member of Standing Committee of CCP in Anhui Province, Secretary of the Political & Legal Affairs Committee, Provincial Party Committee Secretary of Hefei City, and Vice Provincial Party Committee Secretary in Committee of CCP in Anhui Province. Sun is responsible for the severe persecution in the city of Hefei. It was verified that at least 24 Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death in Hefei city. For example, in the evening of June 20, 2008, Falun Gong practitioner Zhang Qiuhong, from Luyang District of Hefei, was kidnapped by local police from her home. Zhang went on hunger strike while in detention, yet was subject to more torture and beatings. Zhang was tortured to death on October 18, 2008.
Since April 2013, Sun Jinlong has been the deputy secretary of Hunan Provincial Party Committee. Based on statistics gathered by the minghui website, from July to September 2013, at least 75 Falun Gong practitioners were kidnapped and at least seven brainwash centers were opened in Hunan Province. 38 practitioners were sent to the brainwash centers. A 77 year old practitioner from Lengshuijiang, Loudi City, was illegally trialed. In the first half of 2014, at least 3 Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death in Hunan Province.
Sun Jinlong bears inescapable responsibilities for the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. WOIPFG hereby establishes a case to investigate Sun Jinlong and calls for those who have evidence of Sun Jinlong’s participation in the persecution of Falun Gong to contact WOIPFG promptly.
Our principles are: whoever has committed the crime is responsible for it, individuals are responsible for group organized crimes, instigating a crime is the same as directly committing a crime. Based on these principles, all the crimes conducted in the name of organizations, units, and systems will eventually be the responsibility of the individuals. All the responsible persons who have participated in the persecution of Falun Gong will be investigated thoroughly and brought to justice.
We hereby warn those who have participated in the persecution of Falun Gong: the persecution of Falun Gong is crime of genocide and crime against humanity. It is the same crime committed by the Nazi war criminals. Carrying out instructions can’t be used as an excuse for exemption; all the participants are responsible.
WOIPFG will continue to investigate the criminal conduct of all institutions, organizations, and individuals involved in the persecution of Falun Gong, to bring such investigations, no matter how long it takes, no matter how far and deep we have to search, to full closure, to exercise fundamental principles of humanity, and to restore and uphold justice in society.
