Mr. Li Jianbo and His Wife Liu Xiuyun Imprisoned Their Eight-Year-Old Daughter Is Heartbroken
(Clearwisdom.net) For refusing to renounce Falun Dafa, practitioners Mr. Li Jianbo and his wife Liu Xiuyun from Rizho City, Shandong Province, have been sentenced to prison for eight and four years, respectively. Their eight-year-old daughter cries every day, wishing to see her parents.
At around 2:40 p.m. on May 28, 2005, Mr. Li Jianbo's boss at the Rizhao City Branch of People's Bank called him, deceiving him into going to his office on Saturday. 610 Office agents took away his house key as soon as he arrived, saying that they would search his house since he still practiced Falun Gong. Then four to five policemen opened his door. Ms. Liu Xiuyun and their daughter Mengyuan were studying at home. The frightened child broke down crying after seeing so many policemen ransacking their home like thieves, even taking her things. They arrested Ms. Liu Xiuyun, who is an employee of the Rizhao City Branch of the China Industrial and Commerce Bank. Mr. Li Jianbo and his wife Liu Xiuyun were both detained for 19 days. On June 17, 2005, the Rizhao City 610 Office took Mr. Li into custody and detained him at the Rizhao City Detention Center for 14 months. During this time period, Mr. Li Jianbo clarified the truth to the guards, urging them to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and its related organizations. He was beaten until his head bled, and he still has a long scar on his head today. He was not allowed visitors. He was sentenced to eight years in prison, and sent to Taian Prison on July 14, 2006. He was allowed to see his family only once before going to prison.
On June 17, 2005, Ms. Liu Xiuyun was released after being illegally fined 10,000 yuan, but she was not allowed to go back to work. After five months, on October 28, 2005, her employer deceived her, saying that she could return to work, but actually the 610 Office's vehicle was waiting for her. They claimed that Ms. Liu Xiuyun had given her husband a small slip of paper, and they detained her at the Rizhao City Detention Center for one year. They fine her another 10,000 yuan, sentenced her to four years in prison, and are about to send her to Jinan Prison.
Their eight-year-old daughter cries every day, wishing to be reunited with her parents. She sometimes does not want to go to school. She lives with her grandparents, who are both almost 70 years old, and do not have the ability to take good care of her.
