In the time since the Chinese New Year of 2002, there have been at least nine Japanese Falun Gong practitioners and relatives of practitioners who have suffered persecution while traveling to China to visit relatives or on business.

Ms. Cai is a Japanese Dafa practitioner. During the last Chinese New Year holiday, she went to China to visit her elderly parents. She found that she was tailed when she was at her relative's home in Beijing, and their home telephone was also monitored. The third night in Beijing when she was together with her family having dinner, seven to eight policemen barged in. They illegally went through all of her luggage and her relative's house, finally forcefully taking Ms. Cai away. The policemen took her to a small building without any signs and interrogated her for six hours. All of her truth-clarifying materials were confiscated, and her passport and other IDs were also withheld.

Ms. Cai said that during the interrogation, one policeman divulged that they had been busy with her case for over 10 days before detaining her. From booking the airline ticket overseas to setting out on this trip, all of her activities were monitored. After arriving in Beijing, she was followed by policemen at all times.

Ms. Cai said that there were dozens of policemen involved in her abduction, some of them took the role of detaining her, some of them took the role of interrogation, some of them drove the five-car escort, some of them monitored the telephones, and some of them followed her outdoors and so on. It was as if they were dealing with some kind of serious enemy. The government spent so much money and manpower to deal with a quiet lady who just practices "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance".

Ms. Cai said, "I am just a very ordinary Dafa practitioner, yet I already received so much attention from Jiang's regime. Then how much of the ordinary people's money does the Jiang regime spend to persecute the large number of Falun Gong practitioners inside and outside China? They put so many serious cases aside, and focus their attention and resources on persecuting good people who cultivate 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance'."

Ms. Liu is a Japanese Dafa practitioner's relative, and she doesn't practice Falun Gong. She went back to China to visit her relatives during last Chinese New Year, and then returned to Japan. However, soon after she returned, she got a call from her friend in China. She was told that she was monitored as she arrived at Shanghai airport, and her whole trip from Shanghai to Heilongjiang province until she left was tailed and monitored by policemen. All the friends she contacted in China were investigated. One of her friends thought it was strange when she was investigated by officials of the Chinese National Security Agency. Ms. Liu told the story to her relative who is a Dafa practitioner, and the practitioner said, "This is nonsense, how much ordinary people's money will be wasted? So many people are laid off and have no income at present, is this the right way to spend people's money?"

Ms. Gong is a Japanese practitioner. She went on a business trip to China. As soon as she arrived in China, she was tailed and monitored until she came back to Japan. She spent the entire time in a very threatening environment.

Ms. Chen is a Dafa practitioner in Japan. Last year she went back to China to visit her family and then returned safely. However, a few days later, her parents in China were paid a visit and threatened by some officials from the Chinese National Security Agency.

In order to defame Falun Gong overseas, large numbers of Chinese agents are sent around the world to monitor, interfere with and slander overseas Falun Gong practitioners and to collect information on them.

In the past, we were given information from western media that the Jiang regime has spent enormous amounts of money to persecute ordinary good people who practice
"Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." On February 27, 2001, Jiang allotted 4 billion Yuan (the average monthly income in China is about 500 Yuan) to set up a large amount of monitoring equipment for the purpose of tracking Falun Gong practitioners. Money was used as an incentive for a large number of people involved in persecuting Falun Gong. For example, in many areas, turning in or capturing one Falun Gong practitioner can lead to a bonus of 3,000 to 10,000 Yuan.

The dictator Jiang has been charged with genocide in the United States, and more lawsuits are pending in other countries. He and those assisting in the persecution will be brought to justice and held accountable for their crimes.
