(Clearwisdom.net) Around December 7-8, 2006, local police from Pingyuan County, Dezhou City, Shandong Province, including policemen Li Changzhong, Zhang Zhenyi, Li Feng, Zhu Liguo, Qin Yang and a policewoman named Jiao Hongxia, arrested three local Falun Gong practitioners, Mr. Zhang Jiyun, Ms. Cao Xiaoyan and Mr. Li Shulong. These practitioners' current whereabouts are unknown.
In the first half of 2006 alone, the police in Pingyuan County ransacked five practitioners' homes, arrested ten practitioners and illegally sentenced two practitioners to a forced labor camp. In addition, the local police have ransacked and harassed more than twenty households of local practitioners and extorted money from them.
Since November 2006, the police from Pingyuan County, Dezhou City have been conducting illegal searches at will in Yuzhuang Village, Qiancao Town. They forced practitioners to renounce Falun Gong and sign guarantees not to practice Falun Gong. Those practitioners who refused to comply were arrested or fined.
On November 8, 2006, the local police sneaked into Songjuazhuang Village near the Street Administration Office on Taoyuan Street. They illegally ransacked Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Song Guangxi's home and arrested him and his daughter Song Xiaohui. The police forced them to renounce Falun Gong and guarantee in writing not to practice Falun Gong. In addition, the police extorted 4,500 yuan in the name of a fine before they released Ms. Song Xiaohui.
Just two days later, the police secretly went to Liangzhuang Village and confiscated a practitioner's computer, copying machine, and an address book. Later, the police made an attempt to arrest Ms. Song Xiaohui and her mother. Ms. Song and her mother had no choice but to flee from home to avoid further persecution. To this day, Ms. Song Xiaohui's three-year-old son is deprived of his mother and grandmother's care.
On December 1, 2006, the police went to the Golden Wheat Flour Factory in Pingyuan County and illegally arrested Ms. Wang Xiuping, the daughter of a Falun Gong practitioner. Next they ransacked Ms. Wang Xiuping's home and confiscated her collection of Falun Gong truth-clarification materials. She was forced to pay a fine of 3,500 yuan to the police. On around December 7 or 8, the police broke into a Falun Gong practitioner's home in broad daylight by damaging the door lock and front door, and they confiscated Teacher Li Hongzhi's photographs and Falun Gong materials.
On around December 7 or 8, the police went to Dayingzhang (an area near the Street Administration Office at Taoyuan Street) to conduct an illegal search, and ransacked a Falun Gong practitioner's home. They forced the practitioner to guarantee not to practice Falun Gong in writing and collected a fine. They then arrested a practitioner and threatened several other practitioners, which left them no choice but to flee from home to avoid further persecution. They are presently homeless.
Since November 2006, the police have repeatedly ransacked a practitioner's home in Yuxianzhuang Village near the Street Administration Office on Longmen Street and attempted to arrest the practitioner. Fortunately the practitioner was out at the time and escaped the police's plot. However, the practitioner has not been able to return home in order to avoid the persecution.
