The Institute of Radiation Medicine, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, is located at 238 Baiti Road, Nankai District, Tianjin City, near the rear gate of Nankai University. In recent years, the authorities of this institute have been following a policy a persecution. Since July 20th, 1999, many practitioners have been sentenced to forced labour, fired from their jobs, or forced to transfer to other jobs.

Recently, Ms. Zheng Hongwen, a practitioner, was reported while she distributed leaflets explaining the truth about Falun Gong so that the Chinese people could understand the unreasonable persecution and what Falun Gong is really about, and is now under house arrest ordered by Party and Administration officials lead by Fan Feiyue, head of the Institute. She has been deprived of physical freedom for over a month. Prior to July 20th, 1999, Ms. Zheng was a typist in the Institute's head office. In 2000, she was imprisoned at the Banqiao Forced Labour Camp in Tianjin and then sent back to the mail room after she had been forced to sign the three statements1. Ms. Zheng is honest, kind, and hard working. In 2006, she resumed practising Falun Gong. She became more healthy both physically and mentally and used this fact to show people the benefits of Falun Gong. During the last few weeks, she has been locked up in an office on the third floor of an administration building. The officials have been taking turns talking to her in an attempt to force her to write something. Ms. Zheng has not complied, and they are threatening to hand her over to the police.
