1. [Yingkou City, Liaoning Province] Personnel from the 610 Office Attempt to Sentence Falun Dafa Practitioner Mr. He Wei
On July 3, 2005, practitioner Mr. He Wei and his family from Yingkou City went to visit his uncle in the Laobian District. The authorities followed them and found 20 truth clarification. They then arrested Mr. He Wei, his mother-in-law, and his wife Wang Haihong and took them to the Laobian District Police Station. Afterwards they ransacked Mr. He's home. Mr. He has since been held at the Yingkou City Detention Center. The police did not have any evidence on his wife, so they released her after the family paid 3,000 yuan as a "security deposit." At the beginning of October, Mr. He was again sentenced to two years of forced labor, to be served outside of prison. The Legal System Section of the Political & Judiciary Committee of Yingkou City passed the sentence. The family was fined 2,000 yuan but was not given a receipt.
Back on April 14, 2004, Mr. He's home was also ransacked and police found some truth-clarifying materials. Mr. He was taken to the Yingkou City Detention Center. His employer, the Yingkou City Telecommunication Bureau, later bailed him out. Sun Yongsheng was the guarantor who posted bail for him for one year. On May 4, 2005, the bail was due.
This year the police ransacked Mr. He's home and found a computer (the 610 Office surveillance system didn't find anything sensitive), two MP3 players, a tape recorder, two exercise tapes, six inkjet copiers, 25 blank discs, a copy of Zhuan Falun, four copies of Teacher's new articles, a disc, a booklet entitled "Wishes," and a small mat. According to internal information, the items found in Mr. He Wei's home were not enough to sentence him. Nevertheless, Wang Yousan, the 610 Office city administrator requested that these items be added to the list of things they had found last year. On August 9, personnel from Laobian District Procurator's Office held a preliminary hearing and ruled there was not enough evidence to sentence Mr. He to a prison term, and that it was not reasonable to add last year's items to the evidence list, so they returned the case to the Laobian District Police Station. Around October 10, personnel from the police station again sent the case to the Procurator's Office. Now the case has been sent to the Laobian District Court. The court will purportedly ask the Yingkou Court for advice on whether or not they should sentence Mr. He Wei and further ask for Wang Yousan's decision on that issue.
