Jiang Zemin was the top Chinese leader from about 1992 until 2002. Deng Xiaoping appointed him chairman of the Chinese Communist Party's Central Military Commission in 1989, after the Tiananmen Square Massacre. Although this is normally the top position in the Communist party, Deng at first retained authority supported by a group of senior leaders called the Eight Elders. This group lost influence in 1992-1993 as its elderly members retired from active politics. After a brief attempt to reassert control in 1993, Deng himself withdrew from politics. Deng died in 1997. Jiang refused to improve China’s record on human rights, Christianity, and democracy.
In September 2014, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG0) investigated Bai Shuzhong, former Minister of Health for the People's Liberation Army (PLA) General Logistics Department. The investigation focused on the Chinese military’s involvement in the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. During the investigation, Bai Shuzhong admitted that Jiang Zemin, former Chinese Communist Party Chief, had “instructed” the harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners’ organs for transplantation. Bai said in a telephone investigation, “Back then it was Chairman Jiang … there was an order, a sort of instruction, that said to carry out such things, organ transplantation. … Because back then after Chairman Jiang issued the order, we all did a lot of anti-Falun Gong work …” “….that is to say, it was not just the military who was doing kidney transplants ….”
This investigation result directly points to Jiang Zemin, who ordered to harvest organs from Falun Gong practitioners. This is genocide implemented by Jiang Zemin and other high ranking CCP officials. This is genocide carried out by the CCP controlled state apparatus. This genocide takes the form of live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. Under the secret protection of the CCP, Chinese judicial system, military, arm police forces and local hospitals colluded in these crimes against humanity and crime of genocide.
