(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, a few employees from the Tianjin Iron Plant in She County, Hebei Province, colluded with the county police to illegally search the homes of a number of Falun Dafa practitioners. Three practitioners were illegally sentenced to forced labor. Two of these practitioners, Ms. Song Xiaoxia and Ms. Song Liqin, have been made extremely weak from torture, yet they have not been released.

Information on the three Dafa disciples illegally sentenced to forced labor by the She County Police:

Mr. Liu Chaofeng, in his 30s, was illegally sent to the Tianjin Labor Camp for two years by the Iron Plant; Ms. Song Xiaoxia, 42, was illegally sent to the Tianjin Labor Camp for eight months; Ms. Song Liqin, 39, was sent to Tianjin and illegally persecuted there for three months.

Currently, Ms. Song Xiaoxia and Ms. Song Liqin are in such bad physical condition due to torture that the forced labor camps won't even accept them, yet they are still being kept in police custody in Handan City.

Since former president Jiang Zemin's political regime started suppressing Falun Dafa in 1999, the Tianjin Iron Plant has continuously harassed and persecuted Falun Dafa disciples in various ways. Their persecution tactics include offering heavy financial incentives for those who persecute Falun Dafa practitioners, illegal tracking of practitioners, eavesdropping, camera monitoring, and other surveillance. As a result, many practitioners were illegally detained or sentenced. The police in She County once threw female Dafa disciples into male prison cells for 20 days. In addition, they once illegally arrested four Dafa practitioners, and among them, one female Dafa practitioner has become paralyzed due to torture and still lies motionless in the hospital today.
