Falun Gong Practitioner Mr. Wang Hao Arrested Six Times and Sentenced to Forced Labour Twice

Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Wang Hao lives in Wuhan City. During the 12-year persecution of Falun Gong, he was incarcerated six times and sentenced to forced labour twice -- once in 2002, and the other time in 2005.

Mr. Wang was born on May 11th, 1973 and is a former employee of the No. 709 Institute of the Seventh Institute of the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation in Wuhan City, Hubei Province (the No. 709 Institute). He lives now in the residential compound area of Wuhan City's People’s Hospital.

He became very healthy after he began to cultivate in Falun Gong since July 1996. He also became a reliable and responsible employee, and did not compete for recognition, prestige and financial benefits.

Mr. Wang was imprisoned six times, detained in brainwashing centres numerous times, and sentenced to forced labour twice since the beginning of the persecution in July 1999. The No. 709 Institute fired him. Communist Party Committee head Li Hua of the No. 709 Institute and Party branch head Xie Jiarong closely followed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime's ideology. They worked with the district 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) and the police department in an attempt to brainwash Mr. Wang. In addition, they also had thugs monitoring his residence.

The first time his employer worked together with Hongshan Police Station agents to arrest Mr. Wang was in July 1999. They held him in the No. 709 Institute, where they interrogated and detained him for six months. They justified their illegal action by claiming that as the local coordinator of Falun Gong practitioners, Mr. Wang needed to confess and give details on his "organization.”

While at work in July 2000, Mr. Wang was detained in the hostel of the No. 722 Institution for a month of brainwashing by company authorities and agents from the Wuhan City Police Department. They tried to force him to denounce his faith. After that he was put under house arrest inside the No. 709 Institute for another six months. He lost his personal freedom and was detained for the second time.

The No. 709 Institute officials told Mr. Wang to work extra hours in December 2000. When he got there, the institute officials collaborated with agents from the Guanshan Police Station and detained him at the Hongshan District 610 Office for six months. That was the third of Mr. Wang's detentions.

He was detained for the fourth time in May 2002. One day while at work, the institute officials collaborated with Hongshan District police agents to take Mr. Wang to a detention centre. He was later sentenced to one and a half years of forced labour.

The No. 709 Institute human resources head Wang, security head Wang, along with personnel from the Hongshan District Notary Office, went to Mr. Wang’s residence in March 2004 to deliver to him the “decision statement,” which said that because he refused to stop practising Falun Gong, the Institute had fired him.

While Mr. Wang and his wife were posting flyers about Falun Gong in the evening on July 16th, 2005 at Yuehuqiao in Hanyang City, Qiaokou Domestic Security plainclothes policemen arrested them. Following the arrest, the plainclothes policemen and those from the Hongshan Police Department and from the Guanshan Police Station searched his residence in the couple's absence. The police ransacked his residence, taking away valuables and cash. They even took a pair of broken scissors. It was not until his family protested, complained and appealed with the Hongshan Police Department on July 18th, 2005, that the police issued them a receipt based on information on the form that the family filled out.

After that, Hongshan Police detained Mr. Wang for 15 days. When he refused to tell them any of the practitioners’ names, they held him on criminal charges. During that time his family was prohibited to visit him. Because he still refused to denounce his faith, the authorities sentenced him to one and a half years of forced labour. He was incarcerated in the Hewan Labour Camp in Wuhan City.

While there, Mr. Wang suffered from various kinds of torture. He was forced to stand for a long time, locked up in a small confinement cell, subjected to brainwashing, and forced to do hard labour. He was forced to stand up for three, seven and nine consecutive days without sleeping. As a result he began having delusions, high fever, and blood in his urine. He could not pass stool, his legs were swollen, and his feet were infected and leaked yellow fluid.

After one and a half years in the forced labour camp, in January 2007, the labour camp still refused to release Mr. Wang. Instead, 610 Office agents in the Hongshan District and Guanshan Police Station personnel took Mr. Wang to the Jianghan District Erdaopeng Brainwashing Centre, where he was locked up for one month. That was his sixth detention.
