China News Net of Fuzhou City on 11/15/01: Mr. Qiu Guangzhong is fired from his job as the Deputy Governor of Fujian Province.

Since July of 1999, some wicked personnel of various governmental and public security or administrative and legal departments in Fujian Province (as some other officials in other parts of China), have acted as violent instruments for the most notorious human-rights violator and the most vicious persecutor: Jiang Zemin. Falun Dafa practitioners have been thrown out of work or school, illegally detained, sent to forced labor camps or jails, transferred to mental institutions to be tortured, or even persecuted to death. Looking at what is happening today in China, you'll see more and more natural disasters and human catastrophes. Meanwhile, many corrupt and warped officials have started to receive their retribution for participating in the persecution of Falun Gong. The following list briefly tell what happened to Fujian Dafa practitioners during Mr. Qiu's administration:

1. Ms. Yang Ruiyu, a Dafa practitioner in Fujian Province, had been an employee at the Real Estate Bureau of Taijiang District, Fuzhou City. On July 19, 2001, she was taken away from her work by police from Public Security without any legal basis for detention. Later, Ms. Yang died on July 22 as a result of police abuse. After Ms. Yang's death, the Fuzhou Police Bureau used heavy pressure to threaten Ms. Yang's family not to talk about her death. In addition, Ms. Yang's colleagues were not allowed a last viewing of her, and no funeral memorial was permitted either. Her body was guarded by police cars on the way to the cremation center, and was cremated immediately upon arrival. Even Ms. Yang's husband and daughter were not allowed to come closer to see her body. However, it was said that there was a hole in Yang's waist as large as an adult's fist. No details were available. (See http://minghui.ca/mh/articles/2001/8/19/15008.html and refer to http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/8/22/13104.html)

2. In a prison at Pingtan County, Fujian Province, Dafa practitioner Xiao Yanglong was persecuted to death. Mr. Xiao Yanglong, male, 32, a former teacher of the Dongxiang Town Middle School, Pingtan County, Fujian Province, had been persisting in practicing Falun Dafa. He also taught more than 10 of his students Falun Gong and passed on Dafa books and materials to other students in the school. He wrote letters to government leaders to explain the real situation of Falun Gong and demanded fair treatment of those who practice Falun Gong. He firmly believed in Dafa and was preparing to go to Beijing to validate Dafa. Enforcers from the local police station and People's Court detained him and sentenced him to 4 years in prison. After July 2000, Xiao Yanglong went on a hunger strike to protest the mistreatment to him. On July 22, 2000, this strong-willed man died of exhaustion and weakness caused by the persecution. He was only 32 years old. (Copied from http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/2/9/4695.html)

3. Rujiang Forced Labor Camp in Fujian Province is a dark den that persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. It utilizes all kinds of extremely vicious, despicable methods to torture practitioners, and the police incite criminals to wantonly beat them up. For those practitioners who firmly hold onto their belief in Falun Dafa, the labor camp extends their terms without any legal procedure. The following is an account of events in Rujiang Forced Labor Camp.

Practitioner Chen Jian was sentenced to a one-year term of forced labor for practicing Falun Dafa. Since the beginning, he has been forced to work seventeen hours per day. His entire body, especially the lower part, is severely swollen. Even so, the guards have forced him to run around a field for two hours. Furthermore, they have forced him to stand for more than ten days in succession without sleep. The police have forced him to stretch his arms to the sides and cuffed his hands while he was standing so that his body formed a cross. He was forced to stand in this position for a long time. To intensify the persecution, the guards ordered the inmates to monitor practitioners around the clock, and threatened that if they did not watch practitioners closely, their terms would be extended. By putting pressure on the inmates, the police purposely incited inmates' hatred toward Falun Gong practitioners. Some guards even said openly that if the practitioners did not give in, they would inject the practitioners with addictive drugs.

Practitioner Chen Heng was sentenced to one year in the labor camp. Because he did not give up Falun Gong, his term was extended for one year without any legal procedure. The guards tortured him for long periods of time by hitting him, shocking him with electric batons, forcing him to stand for long hours, and placing him in solitary confinement. His mental state is now unstable, and he was sent to the Jianxin Hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian Province.

Practitioner Zhang Siquan was sentenced to one year in a forced labor camp for practicing Falun Dafa. The police forced him to spread his arms and they then bound them. They shocked him repeatedly with electric batons, then punched and kicked him. Zhang was covered with bruises and bled from his mouth. The guards also forced him to remain standing for over ten days in succession without sleep.

The forced labor camp is a place for law enforcement, yet the guards constantly violate the law. They fear the exposure of their actions, so whenever there are people inspecting the labor camp, they hide all the Falun Dafa practitioners in a warehouse. Twenty practitioners are currently being detained in Rujiang Forced Labor Camp. There are also many practitioners detained in Taiyu Women's Forced Labor Camp in Fuzhou, Xianhuai Detention Center, Sanming Detention Center, and Ninghua Mental Hospital.

4. Falun Dafa practitioner Chen Biyu was originally a staff member of the Taijiang branch of the China Industrial Commercial Bank in Fujian province. She was locked up in the detention center three times and sent to a mental hospital four times. Ms. Chen received inhumane torture and was forced to leave her job as she was fired.

As Fujian's Deputy Governor, Mr. Qiu should be liable for all the cruel persecution of Falun Gong practitioners mentioned above. It is Heaven's Law that "Good and evil will get what they deserve in the end." We hope that the involved officials and police personnel stop persecuting Falun Gong right away. If they wish to escape heavenly retribution, they must make the right choice between good and evil.
