Liu Guifu had been sentenced to two years of forced labor in 2001 and 2002. She suffered all sorts of tortures at the Beijing (originally known as Xin'an) Women's Forced Labor Camp. Liu had been deprived the right to go to bed for 8 months.
Recently, a male Beijing practitioner with the surname Pan was secretly sentenced to 3 years imprisonment. Before the sentence he had been illegally held at the Haidian Detention Center.
4. [Beijing] Police Abduct Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Li Ziqin
On December 15, 2003, Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Ziqin of the 83rd Compound, on Fuxing Road was abducted by the police while handing out truth-clarification materials in the Shijingshan District. It is said that the term of the imprisonment will be decided by the amount of truth-clarification materials that have been found.
5. [Shouguang City, Shandong Province] Another Truth-Clarifying Literature Production Site Sabotaged
It has been discovered that on November 5, 2003, another truth-clarifying literature production site has been sabotaged and fellow practitioner Mr. Xiao Li along with his 11-year-old daughter were arrested. They are now locked up at the Shouguang City Detention Center. All of the equipment has been lost.
Information on the personnel from the two production sites:
Mr. and Mrs. Cai Yingjun and Ms. Xiao Ying are currently detained at the Shouguang Detention Center.
Mr. Lao Song from Linqu County was sent back to his hometown on the fourth day of his imprisonment. This is because he had scabies all over his body and the doctor urged him to go back home after the examination. Xiao Li and Xiao Yan from Linqu County were sent back to their hometown and there is no further information about the couple. Xiao Zhao from Shouguang was sent to the Weifang Brainwashing Center and was released after fifty days of detention.
A couple, their names are not known, are both practitioners from Gucheng. The wife has now come back home, but her husband is still being kept at the Shouguang Detention Center. Wang Guirong's younger sister, Wang Xiurong, was also kidnapped and gave the names of three practitioners from Hanqiao in a confession extorted from her through cruel torture. As a result the three fellow practitioners were adducted to the Shouguang anti-[slanderous term omitted] division and they were only released when each one of them had 5,000 Yuan extorted from them [500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China.].
Around October 18, 2003, practitioner Ms. Zhang Xiuhua from Shouguang was abducted and then sent to the Weifang Brainwashing Center.

Chen is now kept at the Anlu City Detention Center and the depraved police have forbidden his family members from visiting him. No detailed information is available at the moment.
7. [Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Quan Peijian and Others to be Illegally Tried in a Secret Court, Fellow Practitioners Should Send Forth Righteous
The "610 Office" [a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches.] of Zhengzhou City, Henan Province premeditated an illegal show trial for seven practitioners at the Guancheng District Court, in Zhengzhou City at 9 o'clock on December 30, 2003. The seven practitioners include Quan Peijian, Ms. Niu Tongqin, Ms. Feng Caiqin, Ms. Li Huizhen, Ms. Feng Caiqin, and Ms. Zang Yufeng. They have been imprisoned at the Eighth Section of the Zhengzhou No. 1 Detention Center. We hope practitioners who have learned this news will send forth righteous thought to eliminate the evil, clarify the truth to local residents, and expose the evil.
Guancheng District has spared no effort to persecute Falun Dafa. Li Yong from the Guancheng District Police Department extorted confessions through cruel torture from nine practitioners including Quan Peijian, Li Huizhen, Feng Caiqin, Zang Yufeng and Niu Tongqin. Recently, the police district has arrested more practitioners.

10. [Yanling County, Henan Province] Persecution Suffered by Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Yanling County Communist Party Committee, the County Government, the County "610 Office," the County Political and Judicial Committee, and the County Police Department have all brutally persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners. In 1999, in order to maintain their own power and benefits, these depraved officials and policemen arrested and fined Dafa practitioners and before setting them free, they fined them again. On the sensitive days announced by Jiang, these officials and police officers would give the families of Dafa practitioners no peace. The threats and the huge fines in the last few years have harmed the relations between Dafa practitioners and their family members.

11. [Attention] Falun Dafa Practitioners, Please Pay Attention to Security When Making Phone Calls to Persecutors in China
The corrupt police and officials in a number of areas have set up a special department to monitor the telephone calls directed at the persecutors mentioned in the truth-clarification materials. Therefore, when Dafa practitioners both at home and abroad make phone calls to either clarify the truth to citizens or to directly call the persecutors, we should all pay attention to security and use your wisdom and reason to rectify the Fa.
12. [Jintan City, Jiangsu Province] Officials Responsible for Persecuting Dafa Practitioners
In Jintan City in Jiangsu Province the head of the city political and judicial committee, Zhang Jianhua and the head of the city police department, head of the city "610 Office," and the deputy head of the police department Cai Weiping, have directly ordered a group of depraved policemen to persecute Dafa practitioners. They illegally sentenced 40 Falun Dafa practitioners to forced labor. Worse still, two Dafa practitioners who were responsible for producing truth-clarification materials have been given heavy sentences of 8 and 10 years of imprisonment respectively. Headed by Zhuang Yan and Li Da, the wicked people of the City Education Bureau serve as thugs in the brutal persecution of Falun Dafa. The number of people who have been illegally sentenced to forced labor in the education system has accounted for about half of the people that have been sentenced to forced labor in the city.
In recent years, the wicked people have been constantly putting the Dafa practitioners under close surveillance. The brainwashing sessions have never stopped. Since the beginning of October of 2003, these wicked people have abducted many practitioners and sent them to forced brainwashing sessions. Dafa practitioner Ms. Xu Aihua was illegally sentenced to 5 years in jail without any proper legal procedures. She was illegally detained for more than a month before she was given a sentence. Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Lanfang is still being detained. Yu Yaosheng and his sister have walked out of the detention center with righteous thoughts after being illegally detained for 8 days.
13. [Anshan City, Liaoning Province] Dafa Practitioner Mr. Zhang Peng Illegally Sentenced to Seven Years in Jail
Anshan Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhang Peng was illegally abducted in August of 2002 by the Shoushan Police Station, in Liaoyang City where he was detained at the Shoushan Detention Center for more than a year. In January of 2003, Zhang was illegally sentenced to seven years in jail. He filed an appeal, which was unreasonably rejected. When Zhang's family members went to the detention center to visit him they were allowed to see him once, but never again. After the police beat Zhang up, they would fabricate lies to deceive his family members, saying that they were not allowed to see him because some Dafa practitioners had just had a fight.
Because Zhang Peng refused to give up his belief, his family members were not allowed to visit him, even if they arrived at the labor camp. The persecutors also asked Zhang Peng to curse the Teacher and Falun Dafa in order to be granted a visit from his family.
14. [Gongyi City, Henan Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Zhang Jun and Zhang Aiping Abducted to a Brainwashing Class in Wanqing Mountain Village
On December 10, 2003, the Gongyi City "610 Office" collaborated with Han Keyan (person in charge of persecuting Falun Dafa) of the Zhanjie Township judicial department to abduct Zhang Jun from his home. Dafa practitioner Zhang Aiping was abducted while being summoned to have a talk." Another practitioner Wang Genju, from the Nandedu Township was also abducted. The three of them were sent to Wanqing Mountain Village in Zhengzhou where people from Beijing were to run a brainwashing class. At the same time, a lot of Dafa practitioners were repeatedly harassed by the judicial department or the police station.
15. [Pingdingshan City, Henan Province] The Telephone Numbers of the Corrupt Officials at the Pingmei Coal Group
The Deputy Party Secretary of the No. 13 Coal Mine: Wang Bojun: 86-375-2720124 (O)
Party Secretary of the Security Section: Wei Zhankui: 86-375-2720357 (O)
Deputy Head of the Security Section: Cao Jiwei: 86-375-2720535?2720533 (O)
Leader of the Public Order Team of the Security Section Guo Zhenjun and the
Section: 86-375-2720355 (O)
Since July of 2000, these depraved officials and police officers approved the detention of two Falun Dafa practitioners and the forced labor sentence of one practitioner.
The No. 13 Coal Mine set up the "610 Office" to persecute Dafa practitioners. In June of 2003 two Dafa practitioners had been abducted and were forced to undergo brainwashing. The "610 Office" used the tricks of deceit, threats of forced labor and imprisonment, and forcing the family members to pressure the practitioner into giving up their belief. However, the "610" officials ended in failure and the two Dafa practitioners walked out of the "610 Office" nobly and righteously.
The main officials of the "610 Office" are Wang Bojun, Wei Zhanbiao and Xie Guofeng (in charge of security and fire prevention).
