610 Office in Guangxi Province, Ruthlessly Tortures Dafa Practitioners

The 610 Office1in Luchuan County, Guangxi Province, has once again launched a persecution campaign against Dafa practitioners. The 610 Office staff secretly planned the persecution strategy beforehand and held a meeting together with the managers of the related work units to discuss specifically how to implement the torture. They listed the practitioners targeted for persecution. Their plan was to go to Guangdong Province to arrest practitioner Zhong Rongji at work. The targets also included county middle school teacher, Xie Guixin, county first middle school teacher, Zhang Cuiyan, a retired teacher from Wangzhang Elementary School, Ye Ruijuan, merchant Chen Jiangyong, and others.

The county 610 Office printed and distributed a "transformation"2form to all the related work places. They then forced every workplace to carry out forceful brainwashing by saying, "if practitioners are not transformed internally, your workplace have to pay 20,000 'yuan'3to the county 610 Office, which will then hire practitioners from Guangxi Province who have already accepted the brainwashing to work on transforming them." With these threats, the leader of each workplace was forced to approach the practitioners in their respective workplaces and try to get them to sign the form.

Practitioner Mr. Zhong Rongji was a teacher at Mapo Town 3rd Middle School in Luchuan County. He was once detained and tortured at Luchuan Detention Centre for appealing in Beijing. Later he was sent to a labour camp in Nanning City. While in detention, Mr. Zhong firmly believed in Dafa. Upon his release he persisted in cultivating Dafa. The lawless authorities in the county education bureau ordered the Mapo 3rd middle school not to employ him again. Later he got a job in Guangdong Province. This July, Liu Guichu from the county 610 Office led a group to arrest Mr. Zhong and bring him back to Luchuan County. In order to protest the torture, Zhong Rongji has been on a hunger strike for about two months. The county 610 Office not only refuses to release him, but also claims, "If he still refuses to be transformed, he will be expelled from his school and sentenced to three years in a labour camp."

On July 15th under the incitement of the county 610 Office, the assistant secretaries in the Wenquan town government along with deputy mayor led seven or eight thugs to break into practitioner Chen Jiangyong's home. For three days, they kept threatening him and demanding that he denounce Falun Gong. On the third day, July 17th, they illegally detained him for one day.

On July 23rd, eight people from the national security department in the County Public Security Bureau, and the leader of Wanzhang Elementary School, persecuted retired teacher Ye Ruijuan. They broke into her home and threatened her. They forced the leader of her workplace and her family to interrogate her from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. They finally forced her son to sign a blank piece of paper.

On July 25th, some thugs from the county 610 Office directed the leaders from the county education bureau, county middle school, and county 1st middle school to brainwash practitioners Xie Guixin and Zhang Cuiyan. They forced them to fill out forms and write the "three guarantees."4The 610 office threatened the school officials, saying that if the practitioners were not transformed, their schools would need to pay 20,000 yuan. They intended to incite hatred toward Dafa within the schools. From 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (7:00 p.m. for Zhang), the two teachers were isolated and restrained. However, the plot did not work.

The 610 Office now plans to escalate the torture.
