Examples of the Unlawful Detention, Brutal Beatings, and Extortion of Dafa Practitioners in Shuangcheng City (part 1)

Heilongjiang Province
Wujia County, Min-an Village

Li Lanying, female, 45, went to Beijing to appeal on December 19, 2000. On the morning of December 20, she was arrested and sent to the Public Security Bureau of Tiananmen while she was watching the national flag-raising ceremony in Tiananmen Square. In the afternoon she was sent to a detention centre in Yanqing County in a suburb of Beijing. She was unlawfully detained for 7 days and she and other practitioners went on a hunger strike. Then she was sent to Dagang Public Security Bureau in Tianjin City, and the police there told her, "Your relatives will come and take you home." But actually the Harbin Office in Beijing took her to Shuangcheng Office, and her money was extorted there. After that, she was detained for 15 days in Wujia police substation, 56 days in Shuangcheng City, and an additional 37 days in a brainwashing class after she was released. She is under constant harassment even now, because her village paid certain people to watch her. On January 10, 2001, she was extorted 1,000 Yuan (Chinese currency, the average monthly income of an urban worker is 500 Yuan) by Min-an villager Zhang Liwei, 500 Yuan by Wujia County resident Sun Jiazhi on March 27, and 500 Yuan by Wujia government officer Fu Shengjun on March 29.

Gao Guangsi, male, 48, went to appeal and clarify the truth in Beijing on March 14, 2000. When he asked the police where the appeal office was, they answered, "We will send you there," and sent him directly to the Public Security Bureau. There he was forced to have his photo taken and then forced to pay 30 Yuan for the expense. People from Shuangcheng Office stationed in Beijing came to get him, and they took all of his money in order to gamble with it and took him in handcuffs all the way back to No. 2 detention centre in Shuangcheng City. There he was illegally detained for 7 days, and robbed of 3000 Yuan by Shuangcheng City 6-10 office (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) personnel Zhang Guofu. Then he was detained by the Wujia County government for 3 months, and unlawful people frequently came to his home asking for money. On July 21, 2000 he was deceived and taken to a brainwashing class by Officer Bai in the police substation, and detained there for 15 days. Even now he is being watched over by people in his village.

Chengzhen County, Qing-an Village

Wang Xingrui, 48, and his wife Zhang Xiuying, 48, went to appeal in Beijing on November 29, 2000. They were detained and extorted out of 4600 Yuan by Chengzhen County Qing-an Villager Lu Jingzhi, Guan Fengtong and Ren Wanjin. When they were absent from home on December 28, 2000, people from the police station, county and village governments and the 6-10 office confiscated their home, and took away all the crops from their 20 Mu (about 3.3 acre) field. When their son tried to stop them, they even threatened to arrest him in the name of "interfering with the government's business." In addition to that, they forced the family to write a statement that they owed the government 1278 Yuan. This time Chengzhen County Qing-an villagers Lu Jingzhi, Guan Fengtong and Ren Wanjin extorted 5570 Yuan from them. On January 17, 2001, Zhang Xiuying was released after paying Guan Fengtong and Ren Wanjin 1400 Yuan. Wang Xingrui was released after being held in Changlinzi forced labour camp for 8 months.

Wang Xingyu, 42, and his wife Yin Shufang, 40, were detained in Shuangcheng detention centre because they appealed in Beijing. They were held for 58 days and were released after going on a hunger strike. They were extorted out of 6000 Yuan by 6-10 officer Liu Chunyang; 5000 Yuan was for ransom, and 1000 Yuan for their meals. In November 2000, Wang Zhenmin and others tried to arrest them at their home so as to prevent them from appealing in Beijing, but they escaped with the help of kind-hearted people. Then they had no choice but to live homelessly outside their hometown to avoid further persecution. On December 28, 2000, Wang Zhenmin, Guan Fengtong and Ren Wanjin, like thieves, confiscated their home, took away a four-wheel cart, 600 kg corn and a sewing machine.
