Can a Perpetrator Act as a Friend of the Court? Hearing on June 14

June 12, 2010

Toronto - On Monday, June 14, 2010, arguments will be presented to the Court on the critical issue of whether a perpetrator can intervene as a friend of the court.

In 2007, Ms. Rong Jin filed a civil lawsuit against Chinese Communist official Bo Xilai during his visit to Canada in October 2007 for the torture she suffered. The plaintiff has been a practitioner of Falun Gong, a spiritual practice targeted for severe repression by the Chinese government.

Although the defendants have ignored the lawsuit, All China Lawyers Association, a subordinate of the Chinese Justice Department that serves to control the Chinese lawyers for the regime, and participated in the persecution of Falun Gong attempted to intervene as a friend of the Court. The plaintiff opposes the intervention.

The persecution of Falun Gong was carried out through an extra-judicial and extra-governmental system called “610 Office” inside the Political and Judicial Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that controls the “Courts”, Public Security Bureau, Justice Department and the Procuratorate in China. Falun Gong practitioners were deprived all legal protection.

The hearing comes right before Chinese leader Hu Jintao’s bi-lateral visit to Canada starting June 21 according to a Chinese media report.

What: Rong Jin vs Bo Xilai
When: Monday, June 14, 2010, 10:00 a.m.
Where: 393 University (court room list posted on 10th floor)


Falun Gong, a meditation with a principle of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, has been declared the “enemy of the state” since July 1999 by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) after the number of practitioners exceeds the CCP party members. Hundreds of thousands were incarcerated, brainwashed, tortured, and some tortured to death.
