Cases of Practitioners Suffering Abuse at the Hands of Baoqing County Heilongjiang Province Police Department Officials

Xie Yuntong, a 45-year-old male and chief of the Politics and Security Section of the Police Department in Baoqing Country, Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province, has been actively involved in extorting huge sums of money from Falun Gong practitioners since he took office. He has also been actively persecuting practitioners. The following are only a few examples of the cases where Xie directly participated in or instigated other people to persecute practitioners in 2006 and 2007.

1. On September 6th, 2006, Qiang Gang from the Domestic Security Division of the Politics and Security Section in Baoqing County, two policemen from Zhengxi Police Station, and policemen from other police stations arrested 55-year-old practitioner Ms. Shao Guilan from Jianshe Xincun residential compound. They also arrested another practitioner in her 30s, Ms. Liu Yin, who happened to be visiting Ms. Shao at the time. They were taken to the Baoqing County Custodial Station. Both of their homes were ransacked. Police confiscated Ms. Shao's casette player, Falun Gong books, and about 200 yuan1. Ms. Shao was detained for 15 days. During her detention, several policemen from the Politics and Security Section in Baoqing County and Shuang Yashan City stayed at her home for quite a few days without compensating her for boarding there. The custodial station in Baoqing County extorted 300 "yuan" from her, and Qiang Gang extorted 1000 yuan for bail from her. Xie Yuntong extorted 1000 yuan from Ms. Shao before he set her free. They confiscated Ms. Liu's TV, DVD player, electronic books, and mobile phones. She was detained for three days. During that time, police officers tried to extort a confession from her by force, deprived her of sleep, and cuffed her hands together with one hand crossing up over her shoulder causing excruciating pain. A policeman from Zhengxi Police Station burned the back of her hands with cigarette butts. One policeman from Shuangyashan City forced Liu Yin to stand with her legs wide apart and then pushed his foot on her back and tried to force her down. Ms. Liu was detained in the custodial station for nearly two months and later on was sentenced to one year in a forced labour camp. Xie Yuntong extorted 18,000 yuan from her family before he released her. At the moment, her whole family has been forced to leave home and go elsewhere.
