Three Young Practitioners Were Given Heavy Sentences
At around 9:00 a.m. on November 2nd, 2006, Guangan City Deputy Mayor (and former Political and Law Committee Secretary) Yu Yi and Guangan City National Security Division Head Luo led over 20 police officers from Guangan City and Huaying City to arrest Ms. Ding Yurong, Mr. Zeng Geping, and Xiang Lin in their house at Huaying City Seed Company. Ms. Ding Yuerong is a former teacher at the Baishi Township Elementary School, Zeng Geping is a retired serviceman from Daishi Township, and Xiang Lin formerly worked at Huarong City Qujiang Cement Factory.
The police confiscated four notebook computers, printers, a CD copying machine, printing materials, 40,000 yuan1 in cash, and a bank passbook worth over 100,000 yuan. They kept the computers and cash for themselves. They also attempted to force the practitioners to reveal the code for the bank passbook, but failed.
Following Ms. Ding Yuerong and Mr. Zeng Geping's arrest, the police feared exposure of their crimes. They hid the practitioners in a secret location in Huarong City for a long time. They also did this to try to extort a confession. Xiang Lin was on a hunger strike to protest the arrest. The Huarong City officers secretly transferred him without a trial to the Gaoping District Chuanzhong Prison Hospital in Nanchong City, where he was held from December 13th, 2006, to March 8th, 2007.
On the morning of August 8th, 2007, the police went to the Township Xiexing Court to hold a secret session to hear this case. Court head Du deprived the practitioners of their right to a defence and carelessly heard the case, which angered people in the public gallery. The crowd said that Falun Gong practitioners are good people and demanded that the court officials release the practitioner at once.
Recently, Guangan City officials secretly sentenced Mr. Zeng Geping and Xiang Lin to seven years in prison and Ms. Ding Yuerong to six years in prison.
2. Nine Practitioners from Wusheng County Were Sentenced to Forced Labour
At 3:00 a.m. on September 6th, 2007, Wusheng County National Security Division personnel Xia Zhongming, Chen Zhiping, and Lin Chen broke into practitioners' homes, attempting to arrest them. The officials also ransacked their homes. Some practitioners did not open their doors. The officials destroyed the security door to break into the practitioners' homes to arrest them.
More than ten practitioners from Wusheng County were arrested that same morning. Most of the arrested practitioners were 60 to 70 years old. The police took them to the Guangan City or County Detention Centre. The practitioners were taken to the Old Armed Forces Department Brainwashing Centre in Huarong City in early October.
Other practitioners never stopped exposing the evildoings. This resulted in the closure of the brainwashing centre in late October. The police secretly sentenced several practitioners to prison and forced labour without observing any legal procedures.
3. Mr. Huang Xueyi from Linshui County Arrested, His Home Ransacked, and His Personal Belongings Stolen
On October 17th, 2007, elderly practitioner Huang Xueyi from Linshui County, Guangan City, went to Liangban Village to distribute leaflets exposing the persecution. Local officials arrested him. That night, personnel from the County National Security Division ransacked his home and confiscated Dafa books and other materials, two necklaces, and a pair of earrings that his daughter-in-law left in his care.
Mr. Huang is currently being held at the Linshui County Detention Centre, leaving his wife and two or three-year-old granddaughter to live in anguish.
