[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Jiang's Criminal Regime Pressures Jilin Province Officials to Escalate the Persecution against Falun Gong
According to insiders, Jiang's regime recently exerted pressure on Jilin Province authorities to order them to increase the persecution against Dafa practitioners, otherwise the provincial governor and the director of the provincial police department would be demoted. The evil ruffians maintained that there were many practitioners in Changchun City, but there were too few being sentenced or put into forced labor camps. A new quota was issued to Changchun City authorities, who are required to arrest enough Dafa practitioners. The exact numbers for the quota is unknown.
[Xuchang City, Henan Province] Details of Henan Province's No. 3 Forced Labor Camp's Acts of Persecution Against Dafa Practitioners
Henan Province's No.3 Forced Labor Camp is located in Xuchang City and is holding nearly 200 male Dafa practitioners. The guards there adopted all kinds of means of persecution, including threatening and brainwashing Dafa practitioners. The lawless personnel at the labor camp forced family members who came to visit the practitioners to write statements denouncing Dafa and threatened them with loss of visitation rights if they didn't write the statements.
Dafa practitioner Mr. Yan Xinliang from Luohe City was kicked in the jaw and seriously injured. He staged a hunger strike to protest the persecution and was only taken to a hospital for emergency treatment when he was almost dead. In the hospital, his family members found out that his body was seriously injured. His term was extended afterwards.
In March 2001, Dafa practitioner Mr. Bai Hongmin from Xuchang City was taken away from home and sentenced to three years of forced labor. When he refused to give in, five or six thugs stuffed his mouth with smelly socks and hung him up. He suffered numerous other tortures. As he resisted the evil, refused to wear prison clothes, refused to perform the compulsory labor and put on a prisoner's number, he is now handcuffed in solitary confinement and is in a very bad situation. Detailed information is unavailable due to the information blockade.
[Lanxi City and Wuyi City, Zhejiang Province] Persecution Accounts of Dafa Practitioners
Practitioner Ms. Wang Xuanping and her husband are teachers from Lanxi City's No.4 Middle School. As they refused to cooperate with unlawful officials and insisted on their belief in Dafa, they were successively sentenced to forced labor.
Shortly after her husband was released from a forced labor camp, Wang Xuanping was sent to a forced labor camp in Hangzhou City for brainwashing. Her current situation is unknown. Her husband has now been forced to leave home and live in exile. Their nearly five-year-old child is left without the care of his parents in Lanxi City.
Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhou Lianghua and Ms. Li Liangcui, a couple from Wuyi City, also suffered the same persecution.
In 2000, the couple Zhou Lianghua and Li Liangcui appealed for a legal environment for Falun Dafa in Beijing with other Dafa practitioners. They had to bring their infant who was under one month old with them. Zhou Lianghua and Li Liangcui were detained many times for their steadfast belief in Dafa. Last year, they were sent to a forced labor camp. At present, their situation is unknown. Their child is just two years old now and is also without the care of his parents in Wuyi City.
