Legislator Calls for Investigation and Justice
Mr. Su Chen-ching, a member of the Legislative Yuan, signed a criminal report form against Jiang without hesitation. All employees and visitors to his office also signed it. Mr. Su called Falun Gong practitioners' brave legal move against Jiang a "huge step" the Chinese people are taking towards freedom and democracy. He called for everyone who loves freedom and democracy to step forward and support these lawsuits.
Mr. Su said, “Illegally harvesting organs for profit is inhumane and unspeakably cruel!” In his opinion, the government of mainland China must face up to it crimes and bring the criminals to justice if there is to be any hope for China.
