Police from Chishui City, Guizhou Province Arrest Practitioners to Extort Money and Goods

February 28, 2006 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) From late November to early December 2005, Wang Bin, male, the chief of the State Security Division of Chishui City in Guizhou Province, led police to ransack Falun Dafa practitioners' homes in Chishui City and arrest them. The practitioners whose homes were illegally searched include: Ms. Li Longyu, Ms. Li Zhengying, Ms. Yang Chaokai, Ms. Li Liumei, Mr. Dai Qiming, Mr. Feng Zhaoming, Ms. Ming Fengli, Ms. Zhang Erniang, Ms. Zhao Niangniang, Mr. Wang Chaogui, Mr. Chen Guisheng and Ms. Zhao Jiazhen.

The confiscated goods include Falun Dafa books, magazines, pictures, hand-copied Falun Dafa lectures, music tapes, CDs, DVDs, Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, cash and certificates. After the houses were illegal searched, they looked horrible. Even the ceiling of practitioner Mr. Feng Zhaoming's house was damaged.

Practitioners Ms. Li Yulong, Ms. Li Zhengying, Ms. Yang Zhaokai and Ms. Li Liumei were illegally held in the Chishui City Detention Center for one month. Because they refused to give in, they were all taken to and held in the Women's Division of the Zhongba Forced Labor Camp of Guizhou Province.

Practitioner Mr. Dai Qiming was taken to the Zhongba Forced Labor Camp in November 2001, but was sent back because of hypertension and sentenced to two years of "outside monitoring." In 2005, he was detained for one month and again sentenced to three years of outside monitoring. The rest of the practitioners' families were threatened by police and were forced to hand over money to the police in order to have their loved ones set free.

Reportedly, Mr. Feng Zhaoming was fined 5000 yuan; Ms. Zhao Niangniang 7000 yuan; Ms. Ming Fengli 3000 yuan; Mr. Chen Guisheng and his wife 10,000 yuan; and Mr. Wang Chaogui handed over 5,000 yuan to avoid being arrested.

The police first arrest practitioners and then threaten their family members. Once Chief of the State Security Division Wang Bin learns that someone is a Falun Dafa practitioner, he always sends police to monitor the person. If a practitioner needs to go somewhere, he or she is forced to ask for permission from the police. Since July 20, 1999, practitioners' homes have been illegally ransacked. Practitioners have been illegally fined, subjected to illegal extortion and illegal detention, and have been beaten, yelled at and subjected to humiliation.

Those practitioners from Chishui City who have been illegally held for forced labor include: Mr. Jia Chaoqin, Mr. Xie Xianyun, Ms. Mu Liangyao, Ms. Chen Xianying, Ms. Chen Qiniang, Ms. Lu Chunling, Ms. Luo Lianying, Ms. Huang Jialan, Mr. Dai Qiyuan, Mr. Huang Shunwui, Ms. Huang Shunlan, Mr. Li Yaping, Mr. Wang Zexuan, Ms. Li Longyu, Mr. Liu Jinmao, Mr. Wang Daigui, Mr. Chen Tingyuan, Mr. Li Zhengrong, Ms. Li Zhengying, Mr. Li Xianghui, Mr. Guan Shengcai, Mr. Dai Qiming, Ms. Yang Chaokai, Ms. Li Liumei, and other practitioners whose names are unknown.

The police carried out inhumane torture of those practitioners who were arrested. For example, practitioners were subjected to brainwashing, deprived of sleep, forced to stand up for extended periods of time, forced to take cold showers in the winter, and hung up and beaten. The injuries due to beatings remain visible six months later.

In a county level city with a total population of more than 200,000, 24 practitioners in the central district of the city are being illegally held for forced labor. The number of practitioners from whom fines and goods have been extorted and who have been persecuted through other means is countless.
