2. Latest Development in the Appeal for the Married Couple, Xin Minyi and Bao Juncen
Xuhao and other policemen from the Panjin Xinglongtai District National Security Bureau illegally arrested Falun Dafa practitioners Xin Minyi and Bao Juncen, a married couple. The police colluded with the Xinglongtai District Court to counterfeit so-called "crime evidence." When the couple's family received the news, they appealed to the Panjin City Intermediate Court. Initially, they were rejected, but after persevering, the Panjin City Intermediate Court finally agreed to process this case. The attorney vigorously pleaded for the couple, however, the Panjin City Intermediate Court turned this case down using the excuse that the evidence was not sufficient, and then sent it back to the Xinglongtai District Court. The Xinglongtai District Court returned this case to the Panjin Xinglongtai District National Security. Xin Minyi's family is now trying to negotiate with the Xinglongtai District National Security office for the release of the couple. Further details are under investigation.
3. More Information about Falun Dafa Practitioner Hu Zhehui in Panjin City
After Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Hu Zhehui was illegally sentenced to a 15-year jail term by the Xinglongtai District Court, he was rejected by the Shenyang Prison because he was extremely weak and he was unable to take care of himself. The officers sent him back to the Panjin City Detention Center to be persecuted further. In October 2005, Hu Zhehui was secretly sent to the Shenyang Public Security Hospital for further persecution. According to an investigation, a Panjin City Political and Legal Committee secretary, and head of the 610 Office, Li Desheng, directly colluded with the Shenyang Public Security Hospital and sent Hu Zhehui to Shenyang Public Security to be put in prison and persecuted.
4. Yang Lixin Lost Part of His Memory after Persecution
It has been reported that Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Yang Lixin from Panjin has been subjected to persecution in Shenyang. He recently showed symptoms of partial memory loss. The prison warden stated that they were not concerned about him. Yang Lixin was arrested in Panjin City and sent to the First Prison in Shenyang on August 3. Thereafter, he started a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention, which lasted two months. During this time, Mr. Yang never showed any signs of losing his memory. Strangely, he developed symptoms of losing his memory only after he started eating again.
The violent conduct of guards who torture practitioners by injecting them with drugs that damage the central nervous system has been exposed internally and abroad several times already. We are very worried about Yang Lixin's condition.
