Funing County Court Blocked Road for a Trial, Arousing Public Resentment

On December 23rd, 2008, a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) county court conducted an unjust trial of Guo Daoyou, a Falun Gong practitioner in Funing County, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. Because the court officials didn't dare hold an open trial, about thirty police officers from the Public Security Bureau, Procuratorate, and the people's court blocked the street on both sides, and stationed police guards from about 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Passersby weren't allowed to walk by. The roadblock aroused people's resentment.

Some local people said that a regular trial would not have been blocked like this. They didn't know why the area was blocked this time.

Mr. Guo Daoyou, 51, is a Falun Gong practitioner who worked in the fibre plant in Yuguan Township, Funing County. After he started cultivation, he achieved good health both spiritually and physically, and his personality has become nicer and nicer. After the CCP began persecuting Falun Gong, Mr. Guo started exposing the evil deeds committed by the CCP against practitioners, and cexplain the facts about Falun Gong.

On the afternoon of July 18th, 2008, a group of people broke into Guo Daoyou's home without any legal documents or procedures. The people included Chen Xingguo, head of the Yuguan Police Station, Wang Baoyi, the CCP secretary of the police station, Li Haifeng and Chen Jingli, heads of the Funing County National Security Police and some officers from the Yuguan Township Government. They ransacked Mr. Guo's home and confiscated his computer, printer, Falun Gong books, his welding tools and pliers, wrenches and other personal belongings. They even took his child's pens, exercise books, three straw mattresses, and bags and boxes of his daughter's clothes. After they ransacked his home, the police arrested Guo Daoyou and took him to the Funing County Detention Centre, where he is currently detained.

During the trial, Guo Daoyou's family members were not allowed to make a statement (a normal procedure). When his family members wanted to speak, the court officials stopped them and took Guo Daoyou away by force.
