The Repeated Persecution of Mo Yimei from Yangchun City, Guangdong Province
Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Mo Yimei is a resident of Heshui Town, Yangchun City, Guangdong Province. In June 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa and was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor in the Sanshui Women's Correctional Institute. There, she continued to practice Falun Gong. They extended her detention an additional two months, and she was released in August 2002. After she returned home, Heshui Town police officers confiscated her identification card and said that they would return it only if needed it to register to marry. They also did not allow Yimei to leave Yangchun City. In November 2003, when the Yangjiang City government opened a brainwashing center, the authorities seized Yimei and her sister and took them there, where they remained for over a month. Yimei refused to sign any "guarantee statement" in the brainwashing center.
In June 2004, several officers drove to Yimei's fruit shop and tried to force her into their car. Yimei cried out: "Police seize good people!" She sat on the floor and many bystanders gathered. Some said, "It is not right to seize people blindly!" "She is a good person, why do they arrest her?" The officers saw that many people were against them, so they fled with their car, leaving Yimei behind.
On May 27, 2005 around 9 a.m., about 10 officers arrived and dragged Yimei away; her sister Mo Yilian was also arrested. Their family members said that both sisters were taken to the Sanshui County Guangdong Province Brainwashing Center. This brainwashing center is actually a forced labor camp in disguise. Usually, the first term is three months. If Falun Dafa practitioner does not renounce Falun Dafa within three months, the practitioner is given another three months. Some practitioners have been persecuted there for several years.
The following are practitioners who have been illegally held in either the Yangjiang or Yangchun forced labor camps:
Zhao Tianhua, three years; Zhao Tianrong, three years; Chen Guanbo, three years; Huang Xiuxi, three years; Mo Yimei, two years; Li Enjin, two years,; Lin Kaihuan, two years; Ye Lanjiao, two years; Yang Song, two years; Lan Fuyuan, three years; Yao Liangguang, one year; Ao Daoshi, first detention two years, second detention two years
