Kidnapping, brutally beating, and humiliating practitioners

At about 4:00 p.m. on the afternoon of Lantern Festival day, February 7th, 2001 Haiyang City party secretary,Wang Guoqun and deputy party secretary Shao Wenbing, assistant manager of the "610 Office" [An agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems], issued an order to illegally arrest Falun Gong practitioners throughout the city and to compel them to give up the practice of Falun Gong.

The lawless people at Facheng Town locked up Falun Gong practitioners in a local government conference room. The practitioners did not have any blankets or warm jackets during this cold weather and could only sit on the floor at night. After the practitioners started a hunger strike to protest, the vicious hoodlums transferred practitioners to a hotel where six practitioners had to share one bed. They were not allowed to speak or to turn their heads, or else the villains would beat and kick them. The main victims were: Yu Shujuan, Liu Shubo, Jiang Changjun, Fan Mingwu's wife, Yu Changjun and his daughter, Chu Changyou and his daughter, Yu Tonglin, and others. The villains hung up Yu Tonglin and burned Yu's face and mouth with a lit cigarette, resulting in spotted scars on Yu's face. The villain also brought Yu Shujuan's mother to kneel down in front of Yu Shujuan to compel her to give up practicing Falun Dafa. Furthermore the villains extorted money from all practitioners and confiscated personal property to varying degrees.

Hoodlums of Guocheng Town locked practitioners up in one conference room. There was no bed or mat on the floor. The practitioners had to sleep on the ice-cold cement floor. From January 15 to 17 (in the Chinese lunar calendar, around late February), the practitioners were not allowed to eat and family members were not allowed to visit. It was not until the afternoon of 18th that each of them was given a little food. Practitioner Wang Hongfa went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa in December (in Chinese lunar calendar). He was brought back and has since been locked up illegally in a small room. The vicious hoodlums tricked Wang's family members into believing that if they handed over 3,000 Yuan (the average monthly salary of an urban worker in China is 500 Yuan), they would immediately release Wang. As a result, Wang's ingenuous parents and wife were all deceived. The money was swindled, yet Wang Hongfa was sent to forced labor education. Practitioner Liu Guochun was extorted a cash amount of 4,000 Yuan because he went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. On the evening of the 15th (lunar calendar), Liu was arrested. Later his house was illegally ransacked and family property was confiscated. Other practitioners were also extorted money in varying amounts. The party secretary of Guocheng Town, Meng, is the one behind the scenes who is giving these vicious hoodlums political backing.

Thug, Fangyuan, of Dongcun Town, after arresting practitioners, forced female and male practitioners to share the same bed and the same blanket for over twenty days. Xingcun Town authorities locked practitioners up in one small room. The deputy supervisor of the township, Wang Qunling (male), did not allow female practitioners to use the female restroom and made them use the male restroom instead. He followed them inside.

Xiaoji Town police station hired some local ruffians to humiliate female practitioners "for fun" every evening [Note: it is believed they were victims of attempted rape or sexual harassment]. People in the other counties and towns are just as evil!
