“Falun Gong practitioners Are the Most Trustworthy Group of People I Know”

October 16, 2012 | By He Le in China
( This story about my experiences with several Beijing lawyers began in 2008, when my father and sister were subjected to persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for their practice of Falun Gong (Falun Dafa).
My family members were illegally arrested, their belongings confiscated, and they were imprisoned and framed for a crime. At the same time, the local judicial bureau exerted pressure on lawyers not to take any cases related to Falun Gong (Falun Dafa). 
At first I tried to hire local lawyers, but no one dared to take this case. Then I contacted some righteous lawyers from Beijing. In the past, I read some reports about how these lawyers defended Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) practitioners in court and exposed the illegal persecution. That was why the CCP prohibited lawyers from taking Falun Dafa cases.
I arranged hotels for these lawyers, prepared paperwork, studied the case with them and took them to see my father and sister. After being with them for a few of days, I found that they knew how the CCP played their dirty tricks. Some even took cases where Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) practitioners were persecuted to death. They were prepared to face all kinds of difficulties from the CCP, and also warned me to be cautious with regards to my safety.
When the court hearing, supposedly public, was held, family members and friends were almost not allowed to enter the court. Policemen were all over the area. Although I was permitted to attend the hearing, I was kept under close supervision. The lawyers’ words were reasonable and convincing, and made it obvious to anyone listening how ridiculous the persecution was. The judge was shocked and frequently interrupted our lawyers. He proceeded to cut the hearing short, which did not follow normal procedures, and we were not allowed to present evidence to the court. After the case was closed, the lawyers had to leave for other cities to defend other practitioners. 
Once I asked the lawyers why they were so brave as to take Falun Dafa cases. They told me that the persecution of Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) is completely illegal. They also felt that the kindness and faith of the Falun Dafa practitioners would bring a bright future to China. If society allowed the persecution to override the law, everyone could face a similar situation one day, and in fact the CCP is no stranger to persecution based on belief. The persecution of Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) was deemed a political task and carried out accordingly. The CCP could do the same evil thing to people for any reason that they saw fit.
The righteousness of these lawyers came from their morality and understanding of Falun Gong (Falun Dafa). Placed under enormous pressure, they chose to stand bravely on the side of righteousness. Their deeds deserve our respect. They left me with a deep impression when they accepted the money I paid them without even checking the amount. Upon my request to count the money, they said sincerely, “No problem! Among all of the clients we have, you are the most trustworthy group of people that I know.”
