Eight Dafa Practitioners from Xinye County, Henan Province were Arrested During the 16th National Party Conference
Mr. Li Wan'e went to Beijing in October of 1999 to validate Dafa. The police took him back to Xinye County, Henan Province, where he was illegally detained in jail for several months and forced to endure many kinds of torture. Regardless of the abuse, he was very firm in his belief in Dafa and was eventually sent to the 2nd Labor Camp of Henan Province in Ruzhou City in March 2000 for three years of forced labor. Later that year, he was transferred to the 3rd Labor Camp of Henan Province in Xuchang City. In October 2000, he was released for medical care due to extremely high blood pressure. On November 11, 2002, right before the 16th National Party Conference, three policemen from the Xuchang City labor Camp (one of them named Tan Junmin) abducted Mr. Li. He was later released on November 23rd but has since been arrested again by police from the Xinye County Police Department. He remains in detention to this day.
Mr. Ma Dexing went to Beijing to validate Dafa in October of 1999 and was later taken back to Xinye County. He was illegally detained in jail for several months, and then in December 1999 sent to the 2nd Labor Camp of Henan Province in Ruzhou City. During the period of forced labor, he was subjected to brainwashing. He was released in the summer of 2000. He later realized his mistake of accepting the evil's lies and returned to the Fa-rectification. In the summer of 2002, the police arrested him. He was very firm in his belief in Dafa and was sent to the labor camp in Xuchang with other practitioners. Because they all had strong righteous thoughts, the labor camp refused to accept them. They were then sent back to Xinye and were released soon thereafter. In November 2002, right before the 16th National Party Conference, Mr. Ma was arrested again and is still being detained in the Xinye County Prison.
Ms. Liu Zhonghua went to Beijing to validate Dafa in November of 1999 and was later taken back to Xinye County. She was detained in jail until April 2000, and was then transferred to her work unit for monitoring. In May 2000, she escaped from the work unit and left home to avoid further persecution. In September of 2001, police officers Li Bin and Peng Zenglan arrested her in her hometown and took her back to Xinye. She was brutally tortured for seven consecutive days and nights. During that period, Ms. Liu did not betray her fellow practitioners, and firmly safeguarded Dafa. In January 2003, she was illegally sentenced to 4 years in jail and sent to the Xinxiang City Women's Prison. During the trial, Ms. Liu Zhonghua shouted, "Falun Dafa is Good!" Many people who witnessed this were moved, and she successfully frightened the evil and validated Dafa.
Other practitioners arrested during that period included Na Ying, Wu Hongzhen, Qiao Huimin, Ding Xuemei, Ding Zhenqing and Dian Laosi, for a total of eight practitioners. They are all currently being illegally detained in the Xinye County Prison.
