62-year-old Ms. Li Fangling from Longquanyi District in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, Arrested by the 610 Office

At noon on September 30th, 2007, practitioner Ms. Li Fangling from Longquanyi District in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province was arrested by the staff from the Longquanyi District 610 Office1.

Ms. Li Fangling, about 62, lives in an apartment in section B of the Space Programme 7062 Base in Longquanyi District. She never went to school, but after she started to practise Falun Gong, she was gradually able to read Falun Dafa books. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20th, 1999, she was arrested, detained, interrogated, and imprisoned by people of the Longquanyi District 610 Office, the local Space Programme Bureau, the Longquanyi District Police Department, the Longquan Town Police Station, the Longquan Town Comprehensive Management Office, and the local residential committee. She was imprisoned because she remained firm in her belief, refusing to renounce her practice of Falun Gong.

In the evening of November 11th, 2001, Ms. Li Fangling and another practitioner went to the Space Programme Hospital Residential Area to distribute leaflets exposing the persecution of Falun Gong. They were later separated. When Ms. Li was putting sticky notes with Falun Gong leaflets on electricity poles, a policeman in plain-clothes took down the sticky notes and asked her, "Did you put this up?" Ms. Li Fangling started walking away without answering him. But the policeman ran after her and grabbed her by the sleeve. He called a tricycle and pushed her into it and took her to the Space Programme Bureau.

At the Space Programme Bureau, Gong Jianguo suddenly grabbed Ms. Li Fangling's hands and turned them behind her back and handcuffed her. As he was doing this, he cursed her and forced her to stand against the wall. They later took her back home where seven policemen and a policewoman ransacked her home. They searched all desk drawers and cabinets in every room and confiscated her Falun Gong books, a tape recorder and exercise tapes. Then around midnight, they took her back to the Longquanyi District Police Department. They cuffed her and another practitioner to the stair rails. At 7 a.m. the next day, they unlocked them and took them to the courtyard; then cuffed them to the iron post of the bicycle parking booth. Policeman Deng Hong stayed and watched them. At noon, the police took them to the Beigandao Police Station in Longquan Town. There they were interrogated and strip-searched individually. At 5 p.m., they were put into the Beigandao Detention Centre for fifteen days.

In the afternoon on May 15th, 2003, Ms. Li Fangling and another female practitioner rode bicycles to Baigongyan to distribute leaflets exposing the persecution. When they passed the gate of the township government office, Ms. Li put some material into the complaint box. A few evildoers saw her and after she had rode off several hundred yards, a man and a woman on a motorcycle followed them. The evildoers pulled on their bicycles and forced them to go into a courtyard. There they were pushed into a car and taken to the Longquan Town Police Station. They were interrogated individually.

Then over a dozen policemen went to ransack Ms. Li Fangling's home. They pried open her suitcases and dressers and searched through all three rooms. They confiscated all her Falun Dafa books, a tape recorder, and exercise tapes. They also took her daughter to the police station and interrogated her several times. They handcuffed her daughter to the iron post of the bicycle parking booth for a day. Her neighbour came to beg the police to release her and they finally released her.

A policewoman used a red cloth to cover Ms. Li Fangling's eyes and two policemen carried her to a police car. The police car drove for twenty minutes and then stopped. Two people dragged her out of the car and took her to a small room on the sixth floor. There was only one desk, a few chairs and a stool. Ms. Li Fangling was handcuffed and forced to sit on the stool for three days while she was interrogated. She was not allowed to eat, drink, or sleep. Policemen from the First Section of the Longquanyi District Police Department took turns to interrogate her.

At 5 p.m. on May 20th, 2003, she was taken to the Longquan Town Detention Centre where she was detained for more than a month. Section Chief Deng Xiaodong of the First Section, Longquanyi District Police Department and policeman Zhang Chunming from the Longquan Town Police Station participated in the interrogation.

At 8 a.m. on May 21st, 2004, several evildoers, including Yang Hong, a former policeman, Zhu Zhanglin from Longquan Town Comprehensive Management Office, dragged her downstairs and pushed her into a car. She was then taken to the infamous Chengdu City, Xinjin Brainwashing Centre and imprisoned there for about two months. Personnel of the Xinjin Brainwashing Centre have tortured many practitioners. They drove a beautiful lady, Zhuxia insane and caused a 45 year old female practitioner to die. At the brainwashing centre, several assistants stayed with Ms. Li Fangling and monitored her around the clock. They beat and abused her constantly. She was forced to write the three statements2. Otherwise, she would have been imprisoned there indefinitely.
