610 Office in Suizhou City Continues to Harass and Extort Money from Ms. Qiu Lilan

On November 4th, 2008, manager Wu, who is in charge of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners at the Mother and Childcare Hospital in Suizhou City, Hubei Province, went to talk to practitioner Ms. Qiu Lilan, a retired doctor from the same hospital. He told her that he had visited her work unit housing building many times prior to the Olympic Games but never found her home.

Ms. Qiu explained to him that due to the long term persecution that she suffered at the hands of the local 610 Office1, her health had slowly deteriorated, forcing her to undergo surgery in September 2008. As a result, she was living at her relative's home so she could get the personal care she needed to restore her health as soon as possible.

When the local "610 Office" found about this, they went to Ms. Qiu's hospital work unit and extorted several thousand yuan2 from them. In addition, they took away Ms. Qiu's November retirement pension of more than 1000 yuan, leaving her with only 300 yuan to live on. They also said that if Ms. Qiu did not move back into the housing building, they would confiscate all of her monthly wages--even though she had already retired from the hospital.

The individuals directly involved in this ongoing incident are Zhou and He from the 610 Office in Suizhou City, party secretary Zhu, and manager Wu.

2. "Yuan" is the Chinese currency; 500 yuan is equal to the average monthly income of an urban worker in China.
