    It's still unclear what Wang Lijun, Chongqing's former top cop will reveal about his boss Bo Xilai after a public fall out earlier this month. Many suspect Wang knows information about Bo's wrongdoings during their crime fighting efforts, and also his involvement in the Chinese regime's persecution of Falun Gong. A Falun Gong practitioner who sued Bo Xilai for the abuses she endured spoke with us about her experience.

    Chongqing's embroiled Chinese Communist Party leader Bo Xilai remains at his post for now. But his future is still not clear after a rift with his former deputy threatens to expose his questionable past—including his involvement persecuting the Falun Gong spiritual practice.

    Bo Xilai has been sued in more than ten countries as one of the main perpetrators of the Chinese Communist Party's campaign against Falun Gong. A victim of that persecution, Rong Jin, filed a civil lawsuit against Bo Xilai in 2007.

    Jin accused Bo Xilai of torture and crimes against humanity for the abuse she suffered a decade ago. Back in 2000, Jin was detained for speaking up about the persecution. It was one year after the leader of the Chinese regime at the time, Jiang Zemin, launched a crackdown against Falun Gong.

    Jin spoke about how she was tortured in Dalian city in eastern Liaoning Province.

    [Rong Jin, Suing Bo Xilai for Persecution]:
    "Once there was a metal hoop secured to the floor. Both my hands were cuffed to the hoop, and I could not move my body. I saw other [Falun Gong] practitioners being kept like that for two to three days. I was there for about 20 hours and felt exhausted afterward. They also withheld food from us."
