Practitioner Mr. Wu Shizhong Sentenced to Two Years of Forced Labor
It was reported that Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Wu Shizhong, from Guiyang City, Guizhou Province, was sentenced to two years of forced labor and was sent to the Third Group, Fifth Division of Zhongba Forced Labor Camp on April 28, 2006.
Mr. Wu Shizhong, born in 1948, is the former Prosecutor of the Procuratorate in Qianxi'nan Autonomous Prefecture in Guizhou Province. He has been living in Guiyang City since his retirement (see http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2006/2/28/70374.html). On November 15, 2005, when Mr. Wu Shizhong was taking a trip away from home, he was arrested by police officers Yao Jun and Li Liejun from the Xilu Police Station of Guiyang City, and by the Director of the local 610 Office Li Ming. After that, he was sent to the Guizhou City Legal Education Center (a brainwashing center). He was then sent to the Yunyan District Detention Center in Guiyang City on November 30, 2005.
It was written on the forced labor notification issued by the Labor Camp Administration Committee in Guiyang City that, "On November 15, 2005, Mr. Wu Shizhong was arrested when he was carrying 200 copies of Falun Gong materials near the affiliated middle school of Guizhou Normal University. The term is from November 30, 2005 to November 29, 2007." The two weeks during which he was detained in the brainwashing center was not included in the term.
It was said that during the period he was held in the detention center, policemen wanted to charge him with "damaging the proceedings of national law by utilizing a cult organization," but failed. The charge was denied by the Procuratorate with the reason of "not reaching the standard of being charged."
