More Cases of Persecution against Dafa Practitioners in Jilin Province
Dafa practitioner Liu Zhaojian from Jiangyuan County, in the city of Baishan, Jilin Province used to be the deputy director of the local tax bureau. However, because he appealed for Falun Gong and firmly continued his practice, he was illegally sentenced to 2 years of forced labor education. After he was released from the labor camp, his place of work refused to arrange work for him, essentially firing him.Without any income, he led a very difficult life. In 2002, he was arrested again while hanging up a Dafa banner. He is now being detained in the Jilin City Prison.
Dafa practitioner Xu Huijian is from the city of Changchun in Jilin Province. In April 2001 he went missing, and it was not until October 2001 that it was reported in the newspaper that he had been arrested for purchasing a computer and printer, intending to produce materials to clarify the truth about Falun Gong. Later on we learned that he was illegally sentenced to 10 years in prison and is now being detained in the Jilin City Prison.
Also detained in this prison are practitioners who were arrested for tapping into cable TV to broadcast programs clarifying the truth about Dafa. Most of them were sentenced to over 10 years in prison. Many other illegally sentenced practitioners were also sent to this prison. At present, several dozen practitioners are imprisoned here.
Two Dafa practitioners from Jiangyuan County, one named Qiao and another named Sun, are now detained at the Chaoyanggou Labor Camp in Changchun City.
