Main Crime of Persecution of Falun Gong
Jiang Qingming was the deputy director of the Liaoning Provincial Office for the Prevention and Treatment of Cults (the “610 Office”) from November 2015 to February 2017. During that time, he personally manipulated the systematic persecution and actively implemented the persecution policies against Falun Gong practitioners in Liaoning Province such as kidnapping, illegal house searching, detaining, sentencing, brainwashing, etc.
According to the incomplete statistics, in Liaoning Province, in 2016 only, 18 Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death; 208 were illegally sentenced; 66 were illegally tried; 20 were illegally prosecuted; 105 were illegally arrested; 298 were illegally arrested, forcibly brainwashed, and detained overtime; 406 were illegally administratively detained and criminally detained; 316 were harassed and attempted to be abducted. At least 329 people were illegally ransacked, and the total amount of money robbed and stolen reached at least 3.1 million yuan.
Jiang Qingming is inescapably directly responsible for the huge loss of lives, homes, and personal properties due to the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners.
Falun Gong practitioner Liu Dianyuan, who was 79 years old, was sentenced to prison for 11 years and 6 months on November 9, 2015. He was forcibly sent to prison for persecution when his body was extremely weak and did not meet the conditions for detention.
On June 28, 2016, the officer from the “610 Office” of Liaoning Province deployed a large number of police to track, follow, stalk, position, and monitor through telephone the Falun Gong practitioners in Liaoning province. They arrested more than 100 Falun Gong practitioners within the province. On June 28, Jiang Deting was kidnapped by police from his home and illegally detained in the detention center. After nine days, police informed Mr. Jiang’s family to go to the Public Security Bureau to process the compassionate release for medical treatment. When his family members arrived at the detention center, they found that Mr. Jiang was nearly dead. His back was badly wounded. Mr. Jiang passed away the same afternoon after returning home. The family suspected that Mr. Jiang had been tortured until he suffered serious internal injuries.
Falun Gong practitioner Xu Guixia, who was 47 years old, was kidnapped by police on October 27, 2016. Her house was illegally searched, and she was sent to the detention center. Because Ms. Xu did not follow the rules, the prisoner slapped her. After that, Ms. Xu was bound to the "nail board" for torture. Ms. Xu took on a hunger strike to protest against the persecution. Three days later, she was force fed. The force feeding gave her convulsions, but no one rescued her. By the time Ms. Xu was sent to the infirmary, she had already passed away.
Falun Gong practitioner Song Jiwei, who was 60 years old, suffered more than nine years of persecution in prison. He received threatening phone calls from police every month after being released from prison. The repeated harassment greatly affected his spirit, and his health went from bad to worse. He died on August 20, 2016.
In February 2017, Jiang Qingming served as the secretary of the Yingkou Municipal Law Committee (the commander of the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong in the Communist Party of China) and continued to implement the CCP's persecution policy against Falun Gong. Four Falun Gong practitioners, Zhang Yuxue, Wang Guiling, Tan Yinzhen, and Li Decheng, were persecuted to death. Many Falun Gong practitioners suffered other persecution. Jiang Qingming should take full responsibility for the serious crimes of persecuting, torturing to death, and disabling Falun Gong practitioners along with other serious crimes committed against Falun Gong practitioners in this area.
On March 20 and March 27, 2017, the police drove around to harass practitioners in their jurisdiction. The sudden harassment from police frightened Zhang Yuxue, an old man in his 80s. He passed away the next day.
On January 13, 2018 around 11am, Falun Gong practitioners Jin Cuixiang, Han Xuesong, Han Meiling, Liu Aimin, and Xu Xiaoyan were kidnapped. On November 2, 2018, they were illegally sentenced. Among them, Jin Cuixiang was sentenced to four years in prison with a fine of 8,000 yuan; Han Xuesong was sentenced to three years and six months in prison with a fine of 8,000 yuan; Han Meiling was sentenced to two years in prison with a fine of 5,000 yuan; Liu Aimin was sentenced to one year in prison with a fine of 3,000 yuan; and Xu Xiaoyan was sentenced to one year in prison with a fine of 3,000 yuan.
In the early morning of August 23, 2018, seven Falun Gong practitioners in Yingkou City were kidnapped from home. They were Shan Baogui, Fu Wencheng, Mou Yanping (female), Zhao Yazhen (female), Han Xuemei (female), and Sun Guiying (female) and her daughter.
