Mr. Zhang Gonghua from Shanghai City Disappeared after Being Detained in Shenyang Second Prison

Mr. Zhang Gonghua was a graduate student in the Masters programme of Fudan University in Shanghai. Because he persisted in practising Falun Gong, he was forced to leave school and later went to Shenyang. According to Minghui/Clearwisdom reports on August 11th, 2004, at that time over 70 Falun Dafa practitioners were "illegally detained1" in the Second Prison of Shenyang City, and Mr. Zhang Gonghua was one of them. On May 13th, 2004, the prison held a so-called "discipline adjustment" meeting in order to further the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Many Falun Gong practitioners, including Mr. Zhang, went on a hunger strike to resist this persecution. Since then, nothing has been heard about Zhang Gonghua.

Mr. Wang Zilin from Jilin Province Disappeared in Xuanwu District Detention Centre of Beijing

When Wang Zilin disappeared, he was 39 years old and lived in Jilin City, Jilin Province. He was working in the Beishan Forestry Department of Jilin City in 2000. He started to practise Falun Dafa in 1997. Before he started to practise Falun Gong he had multiple diseases, but he became very healthy through the practice. On November 19th, 2000, Wang Zilin travelled to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong and was arrested by the police and sent to the Xuanwu District Detention Centre of Beijing. He was interrogated in the evening and never came back. Nothing has been heard of him since.

When his family asked for him in the Xuanwu District detention centre, Beijing City, the authorities only answered with one sentence: "We don't have this person."

Ms. Lin Xijie from Heilongjiang Province Disappeared after Being Arrested in Shanhaiguan in 2002

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Lin Xijie was 37 years old. She started to practise Falun Gong in August 1997. After the persecution started on July 20th, 1999, Lin Xijie was detained when she travelled to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. In November 1999, Lin Xijie appealed in Beijing again and was detained for 3 months. On July 5th, 2002, Lin Xijie was arrested in Shanhaiguan the third time she appealed in Beijing. She has disappeared since then. Her husband took their 14-year-old child and married another woman. Her elderly parents miss their daughter very much.

Mr. Yue Yueming from Heilongjiang Province Has Been Missing for 5 Years, Since Being Arrested from Home in 2001

Mr. Yue Yueming, around 42, was reported by somebody when he was explaining the true situation of Falun Gong in Changchun City. In 2001, he was arrested at his home in the Yichun countryside. Since his family was against Falun Gong, nobody worried about him after he was arrested. For five years nothing has been heard about Mr. Yue, and nobody knows where he has been detained.


Note

1. Illegally detained: Contrary to what former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, who initiated the persecution, and the Chinese Communist Party would like the world to believe, practising Falun Gong is NOT illegal in China. Although the Public Security Department issued an unconstitutional set of restraints on the practice at the onset of the persecution in 1999, no laws have been passed by the only legislative body in China, the People's Congress, banning Falun Gong or granting the police the authority to arrest Falun Gong practitioners for practising the exercises or distributing flyers. For a more complete discussion of the illegality of the persecution of Falun Gong, please refer to the article "The Ban on Falun Gong—A Dictator's Whim, Not the Rule of Law". (Variation: "illegally sentenced")
