Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Han Yulan from Weifang City, Shandong Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Jiang Zemin and Luo Gan's villainous group began persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Han Yulan has been illegally arrested many times and severely persecuted for persisting in her belief in Truth, Compassion and Tolerance.
The first time she tried to go to Beijing, she was intercepted in Shouguang. She was taken back to Guojiaguan Township Police Station in Hanting District but escaped with the power of her righteous thoughts.
Han Yulan successfully arrived in Beijing for the first time in April 2000 to validate Dafa. She was arrested at the Bureau for Letter and Calls in Beijing and taken to the Weifang City Liaison Office. She was handcuffed and forced to sit on the cold cement floor without any food or drink, and then taken back to Weifang City the next day and interrogated over night. At the same time, Hetan Town Politics and Law Committee secretary Wang and police station head Xu Desheng led a group of police officers in a truck to ransack her home and her store. They took all of her Dafa books, tapes, tape recorder, etc. The police also took everything from her store and loaded her possessions into two trucks. The merchandise was worth about more than 6,000 yuan. Her son and daughter tried to stop the police. Wang and Xu Desheng said to the other police officers, "Beat them to death!" The son and daughter were struck to the ground and bruised. They could not get up. The police nearly broke Ms. Han Yulan's daughters finger(s). Wang and Xu Desheng forced Ms. Han Yulans husband to pay 2,000 yuan because she had gone to Beijing to appeal for Dafa.
During the time when Han Yulan was held at Hetan Police Station, the lawless officials refused to give her food until she was starved and could not stand up straight. She was tortured at the Hetan Town government for 15 days and then held at the Hanting Custody Center for another 15 days. She was monitored around the clock at the custody center and forbidden to do Falun Gong exercises. They would make her stand and deprive her of food if she was found studying Dafa articles or doing the exercises. Fifteen days later, officials from Hetan Town Politics and Law Committee, the 610 Office and the police station took her back to Hetan Town and continued to detain her. They withheld food from her. Three days later, Han Yulan showed near-death symptoms from starvation. She was nauseous, dizzy and vomiting. Hetan Town officials demanded 3,000 yuan from her family before they would release her. Her family was destitute at this point. The police forced her family to write an "I owe you" slip before letting her go home.
Han Yulan was reported to the authorities in the evening of August 25, 2000 when distributing truth clarification materials in Hetan Town. She was again arrested and taken to the police station. The police made her spread out her arms and handcuffed her to a chair in a position so that she was forced to half squat and half stand for 24 hours. Hetan Town officials feared their superiors learning about the "Falun Gong incident" in their jurisdiction and feared a reduction of their bonuses, so they did not report it. They released Han Yulan after extorting 3,000 yuan from her on the afternoon of August 26, 2000.
Han Yulan was arrested again on November 19, 2000 when distributing truth clarification materials at the Hanting Police Station. She was handcuffed to the heating pipe around the clock, with the tip of her feet barely touching the ground. Her hands turned black and blue from the handcuffing. She asked to go to the restroom and the police said, "Go in your pants!" She was later taken to the Hanting Detention Center and held there for one month. Hanting "610 Office" agents and persons from the Persecuting Falun Gong Team often interrogated her. She refused to cooperate with them.
Han Yulan went out to distribute truth clarification materials on the evening of December 19, 2001 and didnt return for a long time. Her son was worried about her and left home to look for her. He found her but suddenly a police car stopped in front of them and out came several police officers. They asked Ms. Han Yulan, "Do you practice Falun Gong?" Han Yulan refused to answer. The police said, "You are a Falun Gong practitioner since you refused to answer. Arrest her!" Two police officers dragged Han Yulan toward the car. Her son tried to stop the police saying, "She is my mother, why are you arresting her?" The police beat and kicked Han Yulans son and struck him to the ground. One police officer said, "Take both of them!" They dragged both Han Yulan and her son into the police car, took them to Hanting Police Station and handcuffed them for the whole evening.
The next morning, Yu Jianzheng from the Hanting Anti-Cult Division interrogated Han Yulan. He verbally insulted her and beat and kicked her. He hit her face. Han Yulans eyes became swollen and bloodshot. Her vision was blurry. Her body was severely bruised and her knees were swollen from being kicked repeatedly. She was in so much pain that she could not walk. Yu Jianzheng grew tired from beating her. He led a group of police to ransack Han Yulans home and store for the second time. They did not find any Dafa materials but they took 3,870 yuan in cash. Yu Jianzheng also extorted a 500 yuan "case handling fee" from Han Yulans husband and pocketed the money. Later, he took 430 yuan from Han Yulans pocket. Han Yulan was again sent to Hanting Detention Center and held for four months.
Yu Jianzheng actively participated in the persecution against Dafa practitioners since it first began on July 20, 1999. He was a front runner in all incidents of persecution in the Hanting area. He personally sent Falun Gong practitioners to labor camps, brainwashing classes and prisons in the past seven years.
The Hanting Detention Center is one of the darkest places where Dafa practitioners are persecuted. Authorities there often use the Death Bed, the Big Hang-up and the Cross to torture practitioners. The crimes at the Hanting Detention Center have been exposed many times on the Clearwisdom website. The cook at the detention center is a relative of Guo Guangsen, head of the detention center. Inmates who secretly bribe him with money would receive a large quantity of good food. Dafa practitioners dont pay bribes. He gives each practitioner a small steamed bun for each meal, but he throws the buns on the floor. The buns rolls in dirt, hair and other filthy things. There are also lots of centipedes and flies in the vegetables. Dafa practitioners brought up the issue with him. He then put more bugs in the food. As a result, Dafa practitioners often could not eat at all.
Han Yulan was fleeced of her money. When practitioner Tai left the detention center, she told the officials that she wanted to give the money leftover in her account to Han Yulan. The officials never gave the money to Han Yulan. Han Yulans food was terrible and she suffered from severe constipation. She often felt nauseous and dizzy from hunger. She was tortured at the detention center for four months. Hanting District Court, the Politics and Law Committee, the 610 Office, the police and the Falun Gong Persecution Division colluded with each other and illegally sentenced Han Yulan to five years in prison because they found "1,400 copies of Dafa materials." They sent her to Jinan Womens Prison to further persecute her.
During the time Han Yulan was held at the Jinan Womens Prison, Hou Xinjian, Party secretary for the Hanting District, went to Han Yulans store many times and told her family to immediately move away. Her son asked why, and Hou Xinjian said, "because your mother practices Falun Gong!" Her family visited Hou Xinjian at night and gave him expensive cigarettes, wine and 300 yuan. Hou Xinjian accepted everything without saying a word. The family was still evicted the next day by the district Party Committee and they were also fined 500 yuan.
