Former Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin and four other former high-ranking officials were issued arrest warrants on Nov. 18 by Spain’s Nation Court. It is part of an ongoing investigation into the genocide in Tibet, according to an Epoch Times report.

This means that any nation that has an extradition treaty with Spain will be obligated to arrest the former Chinese leader and officials if they enter those countries. Besides Jiang, the other officials charged are, as listed in the Epoch Times:

The leaders were accused of killing, a campaign of torture, and creating a climate of fear in addition to “patriotic education systematically forcing Tibetans to denounce their exiled leader, the Dalai Lama,” according to Tibet Patria Libre.

Chinese netizens react

Chinese netizens commended the Spanish Court for its vision. They said that once China’s democratic transformation has succeeded, the freed Chinese people will be thankful to those who helped to bring evil to justice, and will support the trials of these dictators. They hope to see more countries like Spain making those murderers have nowhere to hide.

Other netizens pointed out that it is because a legal solution is not possible inside the borders of China that the Tibetans took the Communist Party to court in Spain in order to seek foreign justice. If the Party really has a clear conscience, they should come up with their evidence and refute the allegations one by one. The public demands the truth.
