Falun Gong Practitioners Suffer Persecution in Heilongjiang Province Between January and August of 2005

Li Jun, head of the National Security Division at the Huanan County Police Station in Heilongjiang Province, and his subordinates have been constantly and illegally arresting and sending Falun Gong practitioners to prisons and forced labour camps for several years.

With compassion, Dafa practitioners have repeatedly told them the truth about Falun Dafa, and Li Jun himself nearly lost his life twice in car accidents. Those incidents were seen as warnings of retribution by the police, and afterwards the police were not so vicious in their treatment of Dafa practitioners. Unfortunately, the recently appointed director, Liu Dequan, instituted a "hundred-day action" by the police department, and issued new quotas and guidelines for treating criminals and solving cases, resulting in Li Jun and his subordinates persecuting Falun Gong practitioners even more intensely. During January and August 2005, eleven Dafa practitioners and their family members were arrested and subjected to extortion. Along with Li Jun, deputy director Lu Guang, who was primarily responsible for the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, defamed and slandered Dafa openly on TV and threatened to intensify the persecution.

On January 14th 2005, police officers broke into the home of Dafa practitioners Liu Shuxian and Zhang Youjin and ransacked it. They took every item related to Falun Dafa and arrested the couple and their guest, Dafa practitioner Yan Xifa. The older mother, who is over eighty, was left without care. The practitioners were later released after being rescued by family members and fellow practitioners.

Dafa practitioner Li Cheng was arrested in June. Li Cheng was handicapped before he learned Falun Dafa, and he had brain tumours and a bleeding thalamus, with symptoms similar to those of cerebral thrombosis. He couldn't take care of himself and he was in coma for a while. A CT scan of his head at the Jia City Hospital revealed six brain tumours, and doctors predicted that he wouldn't live for more than a year and a half. After Li Chen learned Falun Dafa and began cultivating in 1996, he recovered his health and returned to a normal life.

One of the persecutors was ordered to pretend to be a Dafa practitioner, and acted as if he wanted to befriend Li Chen. After gaining Li's trust, he implemented the arrest. Li Chen was detained for almost three months. He was recently released. Li was originally sent to a forced labour camp in Jiamusi City, but was refused due to poor health.

Wang Hongyan is disabled and has a humpback. She said, "Before I learned Falun Dafa, I never experienced sleeping while lying flat, and it was terrible for me, trying to go to sleep every night." After Wang Hongyan learned Falun Dafa and took up cultivation, her health improved and she began to look younger. She heard that Dafa practitioner Li Dezhen's living conditions were poor, and she did as much as she could for the family, bringing them rice and noodles. She was followed by a persecutor, and was arrested and sentenced to three years in a forced labour camp. Li Dezhen was illegally detained at Jiamusi. The 7.7 Mu (1/15 of a hectare, 7200 sq. ft.) of land that Li Dezhen worked on for a living was forcibly taken from him and sold by Huanan Town official Chen Yongbo and Happy Village Secretary Li Zhongyou, and Li Jun received 3000 yuan (1) from the sale. Li Jun also got 2600 yuan that Li Dezhen had earned working in Beijing when the police illegally searched him.
