Chinese president Hu Jintao began a four-day visit to France on January 26, 2004. Some international organisations in Paris hoped the French government leaders would bring up the persecution of Falun Gong during their meeting with Hu Jintao. Falun Gong practitioners welcomed Hu Jintao and at the same time requested that Jiang Zemin, the head of the criminal persecution of Falun Gong, be brought to justice.

Mr. Wu, a Falun Gong practitioner from Europe, discussed practitioners' plans for Hu Jintao's visit to Paris. He said, "We plan to unfurl banners to welcome Hu Jintao's visit to France and ask that Jiang Zemin be brought to justice. We don't participate in politics. We are only asking for an end to the persecution of our fellow practitioners. We are a cultivation group. Our goal is to see that every Falun Gong practitioner in Mainland China enjoys the freedom to practise Falun Gong. Jiang Zemin single-handedly directed this persecution, which has deprived practitioners of such freedom."

According to a report on Falun Dafaa website in December 2003, when Chinese premier Wen Jiabao visited the U.S., Falun Gong practitioners unfurled two prominent banners reading, "Welcome Wen Jiabao to the US" and "Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice", which attracted much attention. Falun Gong practitioners said, "We only oppose individuals who took part in the persecution, and we oppose Jiang's illegal persecution of Falun Gong. During the past more than four years, we have tried very hard to stop this persecution and our goal is very clear."

On July 20 1999, Jiang Zemin launched his persecution of Falun Gong, bringing gross injustice and savage mistreatment upon millions of Falun Gong practitioners over the last four years. At the same time, Jiang's group used the media to spread slander to defame Falun Gong. It also abused its power to block the truth, so that not only the public but also many government officials were deceived.

So far, Falun Gong practitioners in the U.S., Belgium, Spain, Germany, Taiwan, Korea and other countries around the world have filed lawsuits against Jiang Zemin and the "610 Office," charging him with genocide and other crimes. Never have there been so many lawsuits filed against a single head of state within such a short time. Falun Gong practitioners will investigate the countless crimes Jiang and his accomplices have committed in persecuting Falun Gong until justice prevails.
