Circumstances Surrounding the Disappearance of Several Falun Dafa Practitioners

Case 1. Li Donghua, Lecturer at Chengdu Technological University, Disappears in October 2004

Mr. Li Donghua was a lecturer at Chengdu Technological University. He started Falun Dafa practice in 1994. After the Jiang Zemin regime began its persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong and was arrested. He was fired from his job, and was forced to leave his home to avoid being persecuted. In October 2004, he disappeared, and no one has heard any information about him since.

Case 2. Li Weizhi, Engineer at the Daqing Oil Extraction Research Centre Disappeared in December 2000

Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Li Weizhi would be 53 years old this year. He lived in Daqing City. He worked as an engineer at the Jingxia Factory of the Daqing Oil Extraction Research Centre. Since leaving home in December 2000 he has not returned and no information about him is available.

Case 3. Falun Gong Practitioner Yu Chunhua of Caixi City in Shandong Province Didn't Return After Going to Beijing to Appeal for Falun Gong

Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Yu Chunhua, 50, was a resident of Caixi City, Shandong Province. In September 2000 she walked for 19 days to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. When she reached Beijing, she was forcibly taken back to her hometown by the police and unjustly detained for two weeks. She was then released.

After she went home, she departed again for Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. When she reached the train station, police from Laiyang City arrested her. The police subjected her to a body search and took the 300 yuan (1) that she had with her. In October, Yu Chunhua was arrested by police without any explanation. The police attempted to coerce her into giving up her practice of Falun Gong, but she adamantly refused and started to practise the exercises on the spot. Thus, policemen viciously kicked and trampled her legs, feet, arms and other body parts. After she returned home on January 17, 2001, she once again set off on her way to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. To this day she has not returned, and her whereabouts are unknown. Her husband and two daughters, sadly, still have misconceptions about and are hostile towards Falun Gong.
