1. [Yingkou City, Liaoning Province] Bayuquan District "610 Office" Extorts Money from Innocent People
Headed by Wang Hongkui, persecutors in the "610 Office" in Bayuquan District extorted money from practitioners many times. [Note: 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] The amounts of money extorted range from 3,000 Yuan to 20,000 Yuan [The average monthly salary of an urban worker in China is about 500 Yuan, but only 200 Yuan for a rural worker.] For example, they traveled to Heilongjiang Province to arrest Dafa practitioners this year. These persecutors then forced some Dafa practitioners to pay for the cost of their trip. They arrested some innocent practitioners, and released them only after they handed over some money. Furthermore, some police guards robbed the practitioners of all their money and belongings after arresting them. They even robbed their relatives. In one case, guards even seized a VCD player belonging to a practitioner's landlord.
2. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] A List of Criminals in the Developing Area of Dalian City

After he retired, he became the director of the "610 Office." Since July 20, 1999, Sun Deshun has ordered the police to arrest many Dafa practitioners and ransack their homes.
Shen Wankai, approximately 30, is a staff in the "610 Office." In order to earn a bonus, Shen followed Sun Deshun's orders and illegally arrested one of his relatives (a practitioner).

3. [Weiyuan City, Sichuan Province] Police Abduct Innocent Practitioners During a "610 Office" Meeting
On May 28, 2002, Zhou Yongkang, the party secretary of Sichuan Province, and many other government officials from the province and Weiyuan City, including officials from the Political and Judiciary Committee and the "610 Office," had a meeting in Weiyuan City. Fearing that the practitioners would clarify the truth to these officials, the local police abducted some practitioners. On May 28, they arrested 3 practitioners. Because a practitioner refused to open the door, the persecutors broke into the practitioner's home by removing the door.
4. [China] Vice President Hu Jintao's Classmate at Qinghua University Professor Zhang Mengye and His Wife Were Illegally Abducted and Sent to a Brainwashing Class
It is believed that after practitioner Zhang Mengye and his wife Luo Muluan were abducted again, the persecutors detained Zhang in a brainwashing class in Huangpu, Guangzhou City; Luo is detained in a brainwashing class in Guangzhou Law School.
We hope people from all walks of life will help to get the couple released.

5. [Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province] Li Ling, Former Director of Guta District Labor Bureau, Abducted Again
Former director of Guta District Labor Bureau Li Ling is a female practitioner. In 1999, Li was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to 1.5 years in jail for appealing for the right to freely practice Falun Gong in Beijing. During her detention in Dabei Prison in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, Li Ling was brutally tortured. The persecutors even forced her to take medication that damages the central nervous system. After her release, Li Ling suffered from a mental aberration. With care and help from her family and fellow practitioners, Li completely recovered and started to cultivate Dafa again. She often clarifies the truth of Dafa to people. On May 28, 2002, when Li Ling was visiting her former work unit, discussing the issue of coming back to her former position (the related government offices had already agreed upon this), someone asked her what had happened during her illegal detention. Li told the truth. Some wicked person reported what she said to the police. Around 8 p.m. that same night, the police abducted Li Ling from her home and carried her into a police vehicle. It is believed that Li refused to cooperate with the evil. Until June 10, Li was on a hunger strike that lasted for 13 days, refusing to even drink water. It is not known who reported Li Ling to the police.
We sincerely call for the related international organizations to pay attention to Li Ling's safety.
6. [Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Artist Practitioner Abducted by Police
Around 9 p.m. on May 29, 2002, the police abducted practitioner Zhao Lelin near Zhongxin Building. Zhao was clarifying the truth to people on the way home from work when she was picked up.
Around 8 p.m. the next day, 10 persecutors forcefully took Zhao back to her home. In front of Zhao's mother-in-law and her 16-month-old son, the persecutors ransacked Zhao's home until 4 a.m. Currently, Zhao Lelin's whereabouts are unknown.
Zhao is the third female artist to be arrested for firmly cultivating Dafa in Guangzhou City. Two other female artists, Wang Huimin and Ai Xin, are still under detention. Zhao graduated with honors from Guangzhou Art College, and she has held three exhibitions of her paintings. Also, she is a well-known commercial artist in the Guangzhou advertising business.
We hope that practitioners who have seen this message send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil behind her persecution, so that she can be released soon.
