Practitioners in Jinzhou City, Hebei Province Illegally Arrested and Sentenced to Forced Labor
1. Dafa Practitioner Zhou Yanjun Illegally Detained, Sentenced to a Two-Year Forced Labor Term and Fined Ten Thousand Yuan
On August 15, 2002, Wu Tiezhu, Chief of police in Chengguan Town, Jinzhou City and other policemen from the same police station arrested Dafa practitioner Zhou Yanjun. Zhou was sentenced to a two-year forced labor term and fined 10,000 yuan. (1)
Simply because Zhou Yanjun did not give up her belief in the principle of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance" and because she remained steadfast cultivating in Falun Dafa, policemen constantly went to her home to harass her, interfering with her daily work and life. Because of this Zhou went to the police station to explain the facts to them. She told them that Falun Dafa practitioners are good people and that it is not right to harass practitioners, disrupting their normal daily lives. Afterwards, policemen took her away by force. As a result she was sentenced to a two-year forced labor term.
Zhou's home has small children, and the couple's elderly parents were left unattended. Her husband had to support the whole family all by himself. Being required to pay a 10,000 yuan fine--how could a family bear it? Just because she told policemen not to harass good, innocent people, she was fined and thrown into jail.
We hope kindhearted people can stop this kind of persecution and rescue Dafa practitioner Zhou Yanjun.
2. Dafa Practitioner Zhu Zhenjuan Detained for a Year, Then Sentenced to Prison for Seven Years
Ms. Zhu Zhenjuan, approximately 33, is a resident of Shifutou Village (Nianquanbeikou Village), Yingli Township, Jinzhou City. Simply because she remained steadfast in practicing Falun Dafa, which teaches "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance," the police took her away by force in November 2002. The police took her to a police station and used cruel means to interrogate her and collect evidence. After police forced her husband to pay 6,000 yuan in cash, they detained her in a detention center for a year. In December 2002, she received a harsh sentence of seven years.
