On the second day of Wen Jiabao’s visit to Germany, German practitioners appealed to bring Jiang Zemin to justice outside the Adlon Hotel, where Wen Jiabao stayed.

Jiang Zemin also stayed in this hotel during his visit to Germany in April last year. At that time Falun Gong practitioners held large scale protest activities in Berlin, they hung up banners reading ‘Falun Dafa is good', ’'Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance’ and ‘Stop persecuting Falun Gong’, which were described as offensive words by Jiang and his followers when they misled the German police, who could not read Chinese. According to a German Federal Criminal Police official, Jiang Zemin used ‘being insulted' and ‘stop the state visit’ as threats to force the German police to clear out all Falun Gong practitioners who stayed in the Adlon Hotel. In due course the German Falun Dafa Association and Falun Gong practitioners brought the German Federal government to court for the German Federal Criminal police's violations against human rights.

This lawsuit closed on April the 26th. The German Federal Criminal Bureau, which is in charge of security during visits by heads of state, officially admitted its restrictive practices against Falun Gong practitioners outside the Adlon Hotel during Jiang’s visit to Germany were against the law. The German Falun Dafa Association welcomed this admission. The two parties finally reached a formal settlement proposed by Berlin's Administrative Court.

Falun Gong practitioners noted, to avoid being tricked again by the Chinese representatives, the German police had their own Chinese interpreters this time for Wen Jiabao’s visit.
