Practitioner Wang Yongdong Killed in His Home by Police

The Police Murder Wang Yongdong, a Falun Gong Practitioner from Yishui County, Shangdong Province, at Home

Wang Yongdong, male, 38-years-old, was one of the Yishui Falun Gong practitioners. He made his living in the eastern part of Yishui County by selling vegetables. Since he started practising Falun Gong, he has been following the teaching of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance" strictly. He is highly regarded by his neighbours.

On Sept. 21, 2001, police from the county broke into his home illegally and ransacked it. Wang questioned whether the police had any legal grounds for their action. He resisted the illegal ransacking. Consequently the police beat him severely and threw him out the window from the fourth floor of the building, causing his death. Later police lied by saying that he committed suicide.

The brutal beating left marks on Wang's body and neck. More details will be publicized after further investigation.

Because of the strong resistance from Wang's relatives, his corpse hasn't been cremated yet. People have expressed a strong dissatisfaction with the current policy of local leaders towards Falun Gong. People in the surrounding villages and towns are outraged.
