Epoch Times Ireland: Spanish National Court to Investigate Genocide Crimes

Last week Spain’s National Court announced to the media that Spain will begin the investigation of the crime of genocide against the Tibetan people by the Chinese Communist Party from the 1980s to 1990s.
Reuters released the news saying that Comite de Apoyo Del Tibet (CAT) made an appeal to the secondary court against the crime of genocide committed by seven high-ranking officials of the CCP, including its former president Jiang Zemin. If the various kinds of persecution of the Tibetan people by the CCP stated in the charge by the CAT are proved to be true after the necessary investigation, the charge of genocide will be validated. Spain’s National Court will conduct an investigation in accordance with the stipulation of Spain’s constitution that even if the victims are not of Spanish nationality, the national judicial organs still have the right to conduct a judicial investigation of the accused.

According to the evidence, since 1950 the CCP has begun political and cultural suppression in Tibet. According to the statistics of the Tibetan government in exile, from 1959, the suppression by the CCP has caused the death of eighty seven thousand Tibetan people.

In addition, the CCP implemented severe suppression and persecution of temples and Buddhists in Tibet. In 1956, Tibet’s politic and spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, was forced into exile to India. In 1987 and 1993, violent protests and demonstrations against the CCP government took place in Tibet, which was suppressed by the CCP with force.

At present Tibetan religious activities are restricted and a large number of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) are stationed in Tibet, providing enforcement for the CCP’s full control of Tibet. Meanwhile, information from inside Tibet is blocked.

The Spanish Constitutional Court is also handling the genocide charge filed by the Falun Gong spiritual movement against Chinese economic minister Bo Xilai last year for his role in the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

Bo is also being sued by Falun Gong practitioners in Canada and the U.S. for torture and crimes against humanity, and is believed to be behind the shooting of a practitioner in South Africa in June, 2004. Practitioners there were protesting Bo Xilai during his visit to the country.

Falun Gong, a peaceful meditation practice that became very popular in China during the 1990s, has endured a brutal persecution campaign in China since July of 1999, initiated by CCP dictator Jiang Zemin.
