(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Yuan Shengjun from Jiyuan City, Henan Province was illegally sentenced to six years in prison on October 7, 2005. After about two weeks, Yuan Shengjun was beaten to death by the police at the 610 Office. His body was full of wounds and bruises.

Yuan Shengjun was born in 1963. He held a bachelor's degree and lived at the family dormitory of the Jiyuan City Electricity Bureau. He had worked as a teacher, a lawyer, an engineer, an assistant to the general manager at a corporation and as head of Jiyuan City Materials Bureau. Mr. Yuan started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 and he was quickly cured of chronic heart disease and high blood pressure. During eight years of the practice he never got sick and never took a single pill.

After starting to practice Dafa, Yuan Shengjun conducted himself strictly according to the requirements of Dafa. With improved morals his heart and mind became pure and he was very healthy. He was popular and well liked and was promoted to the position of head of Jiyuan City Materials Bureau in July 1999. Mr. Yuan worked hard, refused bribes and treated people fairly. He received high scores from the bureau employees.

In July 1999, the CCP regime led by Jiang Zemin began persecuting Falun Dafa. In November 2000, Yuan Shengjun wrote an open letter to Jiang, then general secretary of the Central CCP Committee, in which he clarified the truth about Falun Gong. Perpetrators from the Judicial Bureau illegally arrested Mr. Yuan. The Jiyuan City 610 Office insisted that Yuan Shengjun was the main person in charge of Falun Gong in Jiyuan City, and the perpetrators sentenced him to three years in prison. They held him at Jiyuan Detention Center and at Zhenzhou City Prison and released him in November 2003. During the incarceration Yuan Shengjun was savagely beaten, shocked with electric batons and subjected to brainwashing. He was also terminated from his job.

At 11:30 a.m. on March 30, 2005, Wang Mingli, head of Jiyuan City National Security Division and political secretary Wang Guoyou led members from the 610 Office to break into Yuan Shengjun's home and ransack it. After failing to find any Dafa-related material, they still tried to arrest Yuan Shengjun. Yuan Shengjun refused to cooperate with them and told them the truth about Falun Gong. The perpetrators called 110 [equivalent to 911 in the US] and asked for police officers, who forcibly arrested Yuan Shengjun and took him to Jiyuan City Detention Center the next day.

Yuan Shengjun held a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. On the eighth day, Yuan Shengjun was sent to the No. 1 People's Hospital in Jiyuan City where he was brutally force-fed. On April 29, Jiyuan City Police Department enforcers issued an arrest warrant and forbid Yuan Shengjun's family to visit him.

At the detention center, Yuan Shengji told the people assigned to monitor him stories of his Falun Gong practice as well as Falun Gong's principles that teach people to be good. Many people were moved by his words. The persecutors at the Jiyuan City 610 Office were afraid the guards would listen to Falun Gong principles and "soften up," so they changed guards every few days.

After six months of detention an illegal trial was secretly held on September 22, 2005. After fifteen days, Yuan Shengjun was sentenced to six years in prison on October 7.

Since no incriminating evidence was presented at the trial, Yuan Shengjun's wife and his mother, who is in her 80s, decided to appeal the ruling. Unfortunately, within two weeks, on October 25, the 610 Office police beat Yuan Shengjun to death. There is not a single patch of skin intact on his body, and congealed blood can be seen underneath the skin. The body is in a wretched condition.

Yuan Shengjun's family demanded an autopsy but the police refused. The next day the police secretly cremated the body before his family could look at it. Afterwards, they sent many plainclothes police officers to Yuan Shengjun's family to take pictures of Dafa practitioners who were paying condolences, as the police planned to persecute more innocent practitioners.

Yuan Shengjun was deprived of his life at age 42 by Jiang's group, and he left behind his mother in her 80s, his wife and his 13-year-old son.
