[Qichun County, Hubei Province] Policemen Entice Someone to Commit Self-Immolation for a Cash Reward

According to information from someone with a sense of justice, policemen from the No.1 Section of Qichun County's Police Department in Hubei Province told a man who once practiced Falun Gong, "If you commit self-immolation in Tiananmen Square, you will get 50,000 Yuan [300 Yuan is the average monthly income in rural China] in cash and we guarantee you will not be burned." The man refused the proposal.

[China] Practitioners Take Initiative to Clarify the Truth to Vicious People

[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Policemen Relentlessly Kidnap Determined Practitioners

[China] Wardens Order Criminals to Act as Falun Gong Practitioners in "Transformation" TV Program

One day, a colleague, Xiaoming, told a practitioner named Daqiang, "Hey, I just knew Falun Gong practitioners were falsely accused. The day before yesterday I went to visit my relative who is working in the city police department. I said to him, "The Falun Gong practitioners I know are all steadfast. They always tell us how good Falun Gong is. How come there are a lot of them being "transformed" as shown on TV?" My relative sighed, "Oh, those programs are misleading you guys. The true practitioners detained in jails are all very determined. When reporters from TV stations come to shoot some propaganda program in the jails, the practitioners all adamantly refused to participate, no matter how hard the policemen beat them. Policemen had no alternative but to order the common criminals to act according to the script and prepare lines beforehand. After the reporters finished the filming, we were done with our task."

Xiaoming said, "After I heard my police relative's words, I suddenly knew the government is actually fabricating the news."

[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Court Officials in the Ranghulu District Attempt to Illegally Sentence Falun Gong Practitioners

[China] Director of a Police Department Says, "Falun Gong is Such a Good Practice! Jiang is so Awful to not Allow People to Practice."

Recently, several people from the police department found and questioned me, "Are you still practicing Falun Gong?" I answered, "Why not? Falun Gong is so good."

The director of the police department stared at me and said, "Are you really still practicing?" I replied, "Yes, of course." I knew these policemen were deeply blinded by the ruling dictator's propaganda, which spreads rumors. I realized I should clarify the truth to these policemen to offer them a chance for salvation. I told them patiently about the truth of the "peaceful appeal on April 25th," the reason why practitioners go to Tiananmen, about the "Self-Immolation" incident, and the fact of Dafa spreading to over 40 countries worldwide while being suppressed only in China. Time was flying. The afternoon passed. The director said, "Oh, this is what has happened!"

Then I told them my experiences: that my family became harmonious and my work unit gained benefits after I practiced Falun Gong. The director said, "How wonderful it would be if all employees in our work unit practiced Falun Gong as you do."

The director concluded by saying, "Oh, Falun Gong is very good. However, Jiang does not allow people to practice. It is too bad."

[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Court Officials in the Wuchang District Illegally Sentence Falun Gong Practitioners

All of the above practitioners were sentenced to jail because they clarified the truth of Falun Gong and exposed the evil.

[Anshan City, Liaoning Province] Policemen's Illegal Activities

[Beijing] Policemen from Chaoyang District Kidnap a Practitioner's Son, Who is not a Practitioner

An older female Falun Gong practitioner in the Chaoyang District took her little granddaughter in a stroller to distribute Dafa truth-clarifying materials. She took the remaining materials home. Her son, who did not practice Falun Gong found the materials. As he feared his mother would be arrested for distributing the flyers, he himself took those remaining flyers and posted them in the streets. A policeman found him after he had only posted several flyers. The policeman knew this man did not practice Falun Gong as he found cigarettes in his pocket. Nevertheless, the policemen ransacked his home in the middle of the night. They found some Dafa books and truth-clarifying materials, then detained him for 15 days.

Because the New Year's holiday is coming, policemen, going door-to-door, have begun to arrest Falun Gong practitioners. They came to this man's home and detained him again.

[Shiyan City, Hubei Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners in Shiyan City Sentenced to Lengthy Jail Terms Without Due Process of Law

On the afternoon of December 27, 2001, personnel from the Shiyan City government secretly sentenced a group of Dafa practitioners, including Cai Ziwu, former Shiyan City Dafa Station instructor to 7 years in jail; Wang Zihu, 4 years in jail; Du Liangen, 4 years in jail; Zi Shusong, 4 years in jail; Huang Junling, 3 years in jail.

[Hefei City, An'hui Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Go To Beijing to Safeguard Dafa; Arrested by Police and Whereabouts Unknown

Police officers illegally arrested and detained them and their whereabouts are still unknown.

[Xuanhua City, Hebei Province] Police Authorities Force People to Commit Crimes

Right now, vicious police in Xuanhua City, Hebei Province requested that each local work unit have three to four people at the police department's disposal and organize a thousand-person-strong "joint security group." These people often harass Dafa practitioners and illegally search practitioners' homes. We hereby want to warn these security personnel: do not assist the evil!

[Nongan County, Jilin Province] The Jiang Regime's Latest Law: Practicing Falun Gong is a Criminal Offense

Deputy governor Li of Nongan County, Jilin Province, who is in charge of the Falun Gong persecution, once said during a police meeting, "How much can you get by arresting a gambler? And how much can you make by arresting a Falun Gong practitioner? The reward is several thousand and even over ten thousand Yuan for every practitioner captured." The former politics section chief, Liu Shangkuan, took advantage of this opportunity and made hundreds of thousands of Yuan "dirty money." He has received retribution and is now detained and interrogated.

According to a reliable news source, Jiang and Luo's criminal regime recently allocated a special fund for Jilin Province which is to be used to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. The authorities claim that practicing Falun Gong is a criminal offense and should be treated with whatever brutal means necessary. This is the reason for police in the Nongan and Da'an areas going to practitioners' homes recently and asking them whether they still practice Falun Dafa. If their answers were yes, then the police would abduct the practitioners from their homes or even beat them. This has aroused public discontent. Such is the behavior of the evils before they are about to be completely eliminated. We hope that every practitioner who reads this news will send determined righteous thoughts to remove yet another arrangement made by the evil and eliminate all barriers on the path of Fa rectification.

[Songyuan City, Jilin Province] Policemen Kidnap Practitioners Using the Excuse of "Collecting Household Power Dues"

On January 26, 2002 policemen from sub-unit No. 2 of Songyuan City, Jilin Province and Qianguo Oil Manufacturing Police Office used the excuse of collecting "household power dues" to break into the home of female practitioner Chen Xiuying, a retired employee of the Qianguo Oil Manufacturing Company. Her home was illegally searched. The police took away Dafa books and Teacher's photo. The same day, vicious ruffians broke into the home of practitioner Liu Fengru, a 51-year-old retired employee of the Qianguo Oil Manufacturing Company. His home was also illegally searched. Police officers additionally kidnapped two other practitioners and took them to an undisclosed location.

[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Brutal Acts at Hankou District's Brainwashing Class

It has been two years since the brainwashing class first illegally opened in Wuhan City. In these two years, the officials at this class have applied all kinds of rogue torturing methods to persecute practitioners. The number of practitioners who have been tortured is uncountable.

In December 2001, policeman Wang Jinde violently beat practitioner Yan Kejian. As a result, Yan Kejian's face, nose and ears were bleeding and swollen, and he could not sleep lying down. At that time, the vice-secretary of the Hankou District's Political and Judiciary Committee, Xie, did not stop the policeman; instead, he personally grabbed and beat practitioners Zeng Xianmei and Zhou Ailin.

On January 3, 2002, leaders Lu and He Jie, policeman Feng, officer Guo from the Hankou Forest Bureau and guard Wang beat female practitioner Chen Lin. Guo first slapped Ms. Chen Lin's face many times. Then Feng and Wang beat Chen Lin's lower back and vital organs to the point that Ms. Chen Lin almost lost consciousness. These brutal ruffians still wouldn't give up. Leaders Lu and He Jie dragged Ms. Chen to a solitary confinement cell to continuously beat her so severely that she vomited blood. She was unable to eat anything for four or five days.

The officials in this class also forced the practitioner's relatives to write the so-called "guarantees" [To give up Falun Gong, to refrain from associating with other practitioners and refrain from going to Beijing to appeal for Dafa]. The food provided by the class officials was very bad. Practitioners were fed boiled rotten cabbage and carrots all year long. Practitioners' relatives were not allowed to send in their own food.

[Hubei Province] Please Stop the Persecution at the Shayang Forced Labor Camp

Practitioners detained at the Shayang Forced Labor Camp in Hubei Province experience all kinds of savage tortures. Practitioner Li Qingxiu (female) had obvious symptoms of hypertension, heart diseases, and difficulty walking; Shang Zhongxiu (female) lost sight in both eyes and was unable to walk. We hope the kind people in the world will strongly condemn the evil deeds of killing and maiming innocent people, and to request the release of all illegally detained, innocent practitioners!

[China] An Old Party Cadre is Proud of Becoming the Relative of a "Political Prisoner"

A practitioner's husband was an old Party cadre. After July 20, 1999, he asked his wife, who was firm in Dafa, to give up her belief in Falun Dafa. She told her husband, "If you think this will affect your reputation and benefits, you can file for divorce. I will sign the document. Jiang, however, will have this divorce on his conscience." Her husband noticed that after practicing Falun Dafa, his wife's health improved and she no longer fought with him on family issues, such as the apartment and the kids. Their family became more and more harmonious. He then silently agreed to allow his wife's Falun Gong practice at home. Recently, local officials from the "610 Office" arrested and then detained his wife for 15 days while she was sharing her experiences with another practitioner on the street. The old party cadre was very disgusted with the persecution of Falun Gong conducted by the ruling regime. After his wife came back he said, "I am now a relative of a 'political prisoner.' And yet, I am proud of my wife who is a so-called 'political prisoner.'" [The "610 Office" is 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].

[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Persons from the Daqing Police Department and "610 Office" Arrest Practitioners

The Spring Festival is drawing near. Daqing Police Department officials and "610 Office" personnel are afraid of practitioners going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong and making Dafa truth-clarifying materials. The government-sponsored authorities plot to arrest practitioners that they recognize as "key persons." They also stake out certain places to arrest practitioners who make Dafa truth-clarifying materials. Without valid reason, police officers have arrested practitioners from Ranghulu County and Cejinglou County. The names of the practitioners are Zhang Hongquan, Yang Zhi, Xu Mingsheng and another practitioner. These three had previously been released after they went on a hunger strike. Another practitioner is being forced to leave home to avoid persecution.

[Tonghua County, Jilin Province] The Fierce Brutality at Tonghua County's Detention Center

On the eve of New Year's Day, personnel from the Detention Center of Tonghua County's Police Department abducted over 10 practitioners. The director of the detention center ordered prisoners to brutally beat up practitioners. They tore off all the clothes from the male practitioners, poured cold water on them and whipped them with leather belts. They kicked and punched the practitioners and injured a practitioner's eyes. They shackled the female practitioners to the pillars and force-fed them.

[Jinan City, Shandong Province] Partial Accounts of Persecution of Dafa Practitioners

At present, about 800 male practitioners are being held at the No.2 Forced Labor Camp of Shandong Province, which is located at Wang Village. The policemen used collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] to torture and beat practitioners with various inhumane means. Among the collaborators, Zhao Wei (from Weihai City) and Wang Yong (from the Laiyang Steel Factory) repeatedly beat and tortured practitioners Chu Liwen and Jiang Benzhai. They even went so far as to force Jiang Benzhai to eat feces.

About 140 male practitioners are being held at Unit No.2 at the Liuchangshan Forced Labor Camp in Jinan City. The lawless guards used collaborators Song Xiaodong, Sun Fuzhou, Zhao Jiashui, Shi Junhong (Shi Lei), Wang Xuefan, Jiang Weidong, Zhang Ling, Jiang Guoqin, Jing Xubin, Niu Tao, Feng Bing and some others to torture and beat the practitioners. The means they used were extremely disgusting.

Chen Handong, Liu Hongwei (female), and Xu Jing (female), former practitioners who took an evil path, betrayed practitioner Xu Xun. At present, Xu Xun is held at Team No. 5 at the Liuchangshan Labor Camp. The wicked guards segregated and interrogated him (or her). It is not known whether the practitioner is alive or not.

In order to resist the illegal detention, practitioner Liu Jian staged a 120-day hunger strike. Now s/he has started another round of a hunger strike and has become very weak. It is not known whether s/he is alive or not.

Practitioner Li Xiaoping from Jinan City has been illegally detained at Unit No.1 of the Shandong Province's Women's Labor Camp for a long time. After a 150-day hunger strike, she has become emaciated and her life is in critical condition. While being severely beaten by vicious team leader Wang and some other vile persons, Li Xiaoping uttered, "Falun Dafa is Good!" "Falun Dafa is the Righteous Fa." She is now being released for medical reasons. Her life situation is not known.

List of names of vile persons: Wang Xinyu, team leader of Unit No.2 of the Liuchangshan Forced Labor Camp; Cui Wei, the team leader of Team No. 5 of Unit No.2.

[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] A Labor Camp Director Rebukes Greedy Policemen, "Falun Gong Practitioners Don't Tell Lies"

Some lawless policemen arrested two Beijing practitioners after they attended a Fa conference in Jiamusi City. They also impounded the practitioners' Dafa books and some other property. After one of the practitioners had been released on parole, as he (or she) came back to claim his property, the immoral policemen overwrote the original amount on the receipt of 5,700 Yuan to 570 Yuan, and the eight policemen jointly signed their names to make the fake receipt. The director of the labor camp said, "Falun Gong practitioners don't lie," and he negotiated with the director of the suburban police department and finally got the money and property back for the practitioners. The greedy policemen's plot was thus broken.

The police who concocted this case of fraud were Han Tieli, together with a vile person by the last name of Wang, who was originally from the suburban police department and is now the director of the police station and also a sergeant with the rank of first class. He secretly faked receipts, embezzled money, perverted the law and deliberately committed crimes.
