Young Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Wang Yu, 17, was arrested by the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) in December of last year and taken to a brainwashing centre for 13 days, because he was talking about Falun Gong to his teacher and fellow students.

After returning from the brainwashing centre he was monitored and harassed by the 610 Office, which demanded that the school expel him. He became homeless. On June 5th, Wang Yu was arrested again and his whereabouts are currently unknown.

Seventeen-year-old Persecuted

Mr. Wang Yu began practising Falun Gong at a young age. As he grew older, he understood clearly the benefits of living by the principles Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and how they governed daily affairs. He followed the principles when in school. He was a good student and ranked among the top five in his class. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting Falun Gong, Wang Yu was harassed, taken to a brainwashing centre, and imprisoned.

On December 24th, 2010, the young man was arrested at school and taken to the Huzhuang Village Brainwashing Centre in Changping District. Qi, the 610 Office director in Changping District, along with Sun Aiping, Lian Xueyu, and Liu, took turns torturing him, demanding that he renounce Falun Gong and sign three statements to renounce practising Falun Gong. The young man was under a lot of pressure.

Wang Yu was held in the brainwashing centre until January 5th, 2011, when winter holidays started. He was then allowed to return home.

Young Wang's mother, Gao Guihua, was arrested by 610 Office agents on April 15th, 2011, and taken to the Huzhuang Village Brainwashing Centre in Changping District. She was detained and subjected to brainwashing for over 50 days. Young Wang and his family visited his mother and brought her clothes.

Continuously Harassed, then Arrested again

On May 22nd, 2011, Wang Yu and a friend went to Xihuannan Road in Changping District to purchase a picture frame. He noticed that he was being followed by a police officer, so he left his home temporarily on May 23rd. In the meantime, the Changping District 610 Office demanded that the school put pressure on Wang's family, to make him quit school.

After 8:00 p.m. on May 31st while young Wang was having dinner with his family, Sun Aiping and six police officers, including Chen Hailong, arrived at their home. They demanded that Wang follow them, but he refused.

Tian Dman and four police officers banged on the door of young Wang's home at around 5:00 a.m. on June 1st. His grandmother opened the door because Wang was still asleep. They stayed for more than twenty minutes and then left.

On the afternoon of June 1st, at around 5:00 p.m., two police officers came to harass Wang and ordered him not to leave home. That evening, two police officers again came to his home. When asked what their concern was, they said that they just came to see what young Wang was doing.

The 610 Office sent police to harass young Wang's family continuously. Wang's grandparents, who were 77 and 80 years old, were very worried about his safety. They would not go to bed until the officers were gone.

Wang's parents are farmers. They go to work at around 5:00 a.m. daily. Because of the harassment on June 1st, they stayed at home the following day.

Young Wang was arrested again on June 5th. The local police station claimed that police officers from the Yizhuang Police Station in Daxing District, Beijing arrested the young man. They told his family not to go see young Wang, as no family visits were allowed.

Wang was persecuted because of his belief in Falun Gong. The persecution of young Wang cannot be justified, especially when it happens to a teenager.

No one knows the current whereabouts of young Wang.

We want to bring the persecution of Wang Yu to the attention of all people of conscience. Hopefully, he can soon return to his home, school, family members, friends and classmates.
