(Clearwisdom.net) Guan Bingyin used to be the Secretary of the Political and Judiciary Committee in Jieshou City, Anhui Province. He and the Associate Secretary, Dong Xuejie, became notorious for cruelly persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Guan and Dong were also the Director and Associate Director, respectively, of the Jieshou City "610 Office."

Both Guan Bingyin and Dong Xuejie enthusiastically followed Jiang's regime in persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners, and they personally directed the torture of many innocent Dafa practitioners in Jieshou City. The atrocities that Guan and Dong ordered and oversaw included: beatings and verbal abuse, detentions, fines, brainwashing, confiscation of Dafa books, illegal searches of practitioners' houses and confiscation of their property, illegal detentions, exploitation of practitioners through forced labor, forcing mentally healthy individuals into psychiatric hospitals for the injection of detrimental drugs, and other gross abuses.

Since the persecution began on July 20, 1999, several Dafa practitioners have been repeatedly abducted, detained and imprisoned more than ten times. Also, many practitioners have been fined without receiving any receipts, the fines ranging from several hundred to over ten thousand yuan (1). Practitioners who could not or who refused to pay these extortion fees were sent to forced labor camps. Furthermore, Guan and Dong often instigated policemen to hit, curse at, and torture Dafa practitioners. However, both men have now received retribution for their ruthless persecution of Dafa.

Dong Xuejie spent the money extorted from practitioners on eating and drinking luxuriously in his brainwashing center. One evening, he was extremely drunk and fell flat on his face on his way home. He marred his face so seriously that he could not return to work even after resting for two weeks. When his supervisor inquired about the condition of his injury, he started a rumor that he was "hit by Falun Gong practitioners." The police department then organized a special unit to investigate, only to finally uncover the fact that Dong Xuejie had hurt his face due to his own extreme drunkenness. Dong Xuejie was then officially suspended from his duties and ordered to write a self-examination report.

Guan Bingyin violently struck Ms. Fan Jing, a nearly sixty-year-old female Dafa practitioner. Using both hands he repeatedly slapped Ms. Fan's face and punched and kicked her until he was out of breath. Still unsatisfied, he sent Ms. Fan to a psychiatric hospital in Fuyang City, where she was force-fed with unknown medical compounds through her nose, given high-voltage electric shocks and injected with large amount of drugs that damaged her central nervous system. This abuse continued for three months until all of Ms. Fan's muscles twitched incessantly and uncontrollably. In addition, her tongue became stiff, making it impossible for her to even swallow a sip of water; she became deaf and her face became swollen and distorted. Presently, Guan Bingyin has been fired for committing excessively malicious acts.

[Editors' Note: In both Western and Chinese culture, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The universe will reward actions that are in harmony with this principle, while actions such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionate reminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they, too, be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.]
