(Clearwisdom.net) In the past two months, 610 Office branches and government officials in Juyang, Yanjiao, and Huangzhuang Town of Sanhe City, Hebei Province, along with the policemen in local police departments and stations have illegally arrested several local practitioners and blackmailed their families. They even arrested non-practitioners who attempted to protect the practitioners.

On October 27, Yanjiao Town 610 Office personnel and several plainclothes police officers from the police department broke into Mr. Zhang Lianchun's home in Caigezhuang Village and arrested his wife, practitioner Zhang Fengrong. At around 11 o'clock the same morning, Bai Shuzhong from the Economics and Trade Committee of the Juyang Town Government, Kang Fuli from the Political and Legal Committee, and Deputy Sheriff Wang Shengjie from Juyang Police Station broke into Mr. Ai Xinghe's home in Yangxianggongzhuang Village in Juyang Town, arrested him, and sent him to the brainwashing center in Langfang City. On the morning of October 26, Wang Baosong, Zhang Fengbo, and Liu Xuebin from Huangzhuang Town Police Station of the Sanhe City Police Department, along with Li Yongtian from the Huangzhuang Town Government, went to Baizhuang Village of Huangzhuang Town to arrest practitioner Xie Fengming. To this day, Xie's whereabouts are unknown.

In order to avoid being arrested, Ms. Xie Fengming went to neighbor Gao Ruicai's home. The police went to Gao's home, demanding Ms. Xie with threats. Gao said, "She is a good person. She did not do anything wrong. I just want to protect her." In spite of this, the thugs took both Ms. Xie and Gao Ruicai away. They also confiscated dozens of Ms. Xie's Falun Gong books, two audio cassettes, and some notes from her study. They demanded 2000 yuan before releasing Gao. Gao's family had connections and was able to reduce the fine to 1500 yuan.

The Yanjiao Town, Sanhe City government 610 Office and the Yanjiao Police Department Branch, under frequent orders from the Yanjiao Police Department to bring them some practitioners, attempted to arrest practitioner Mr. Tian Rongxiao of the 5th Company of the No. 1 Bureau of Transportation but failed. They even attempted to get information from Mr. Tian's grandson, treating him as a bargaining chip to arrest Tian, but he fortunately learned about it and fled. However, on October 27, they arrested Mr. Tian Rongxiao's wife, Zhang Fengrong.

On the morning of October 9, several thugs went to Yangxianggongzhuang Village of Juyang Town and asked the farmers for practitioner Mr. Ai Xinghe's home. Since Mr. Ai was not at home, they were not able to arrest him. Two weeks later, undaunted, the officials and policemen set out again to arrest Mr. Ai and send him to the brainwashing center. On that morning, the 610 Office of Sanhe City got directly involved in the attempt to arrest over ten practitioners in the city. Due to the resistance from practitioners' families, their working units, and neighbors, they failed to arrest most of the practitioners.

In spite of this, there were some people helping the evil to conduct bad deeds. Pan Weiguo, the vice president of Sanhe City Hospital, and Li, the head of the Security Department, took the 610 Office staff to arrest nurse Ms. Guo Chunying and anesthetist Xue Shuqing, and sent them to the brainwashing center in Langfang City.

Ms. Guo Chunying previously had hepatitis B prior to practicing Falun Gong. Her co-worker who had same disease passed away long ago. Ms. Guo regained her health after beginning Falun Gong practice eight years ago. After Ms. Guo was sent to the brainwashing center in Langfang City, she started a hunger strike to protest the persecution. According to the practitioners who were taken from Bazhou City to the brainwashing center in the Transportation Hotel of Langfang City, the methods commonly used in the brainwashing center included insults, brutal beatings, flicking the eyeballs, sleep deprivation, and the use of nerve-damaging drugs and shots.

The guards also put drugs in the food and water as well as in what they used in force-feeding. Small doses usually can make people lose their minds without their being aware of it, and large doses can make people suffer even more. After more than ten days of physical and mental torture, Ms. Guo Chunying's old illness recurred and she had to be taken back to her former hospital.

As soon as Ms. Xue Shuqing returned to the hospital from shopping on a holiday, a group of police immediately rushed over to surround her. They then dragged her and pushed her into a van. Ms. Xue was so stupefied by the abrupt arrest that after she was sent to the brainwashing center in Langfang, she did not eat, drink, or sleep, but kept on crying for four days and nights. The police were afraid of what would happen so they asked Xue Shuqing's work unit to take her back.

In September, under the direct involvement of the higher authorities in Hebei Province, the 610 Office in Sanhe City announced that they were to arrest thirty practitioners.

At 6 o'clock on September 19, the police and Wang Lei from the 610 Office went to practitioner Ms. Xiuqing's home in Building 6 in Chengjian New Village. They deceived Ms. Li into opening the door and carried her off to the brainwashing center in Langfang City. Twenty days later, a group of people from the Langfang 610 Office, along with Han Zhiguang, the 610 Office head, tried to force Ms. Li to write statements promising to give up practicing Falun Gong and to report on other practitioners. However, Ms. Li Xiuqing managed to escape from the brainwashing center. The police immediately went to her home but could not find her so they extorted 4000 yuan in cash from her husband. Including the 1,000 yuan they extorted when they abducted Ms. Li Xiuqing, they took a total of 5000 yuan from Li Xiuqing's family.

During the past six years, the 610 Office in Sanhe City, each town government, and all the police stations enforced Jiang Zemin and the Chinese Communist Party's policy of genocide towards Falun Gong practitioners, bringing severe and damaging interference to 1,000 practitioners in Sanhe City. Ever since obtaining his position as a deputy director of the 610 Office, Wang Haibin has abused his power by directing the police to frequently arrest practitioners, ransack their homes, send them to the brainwashing centers and forced labor camps, and pressed the town government to send practitioners to the brainwashing centers. As a result, many practitioners have been forced to become homeless. Several practitioners' parents have passed away due to anxiety and agony, many of their families have been broken up, and many practitioners' children cannot go to school as other kids.
