Tianjin University of Commerce Officials Deprive a Student of His Right to Schooling
(Clearwisdom.net) Feng Kun, a student at Tianjin University of Commerce, was arrested on October 27, 2007 because someone reported him for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong in the Shanggulin area in Dagang District. He was released on November 2 with outside help and returned to school on November 4. However, Freshmen Division Party Secretary Zhao Shuai in the Department of Logistics Management, Yang from the university office, and personnel from the university 610 Office have consistently rejected him. Feng Kun attended classes despite the difficulties and explained the facts to the university authorities. Nevertheless, the authorities still revoked his registration. (For details of the persecution please see http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2007/12/11/92034.html)
On November 21, 2007, the university authorities sent three officers, including Zhao Shuai and Yang, to Feng Kun's mother's place of employment at the Tianjin
Petrochemical Company to deliver a notice calling for Mr. Feng's parents to attend a meeting at the university at 9:00 a.m. on November 23 regarding the revocation of Feng Kun's registration. The next day the authorities changed their minds and told his mother not to come, but to wait for them in Dagang instead.
On the morning of November 23, 2007, when Feng Kun's class let out, the class teaching assistant, Qin, called Feng Kun into his office and told him not to leave. At 1:00 p.m., more than ten people including Zhao Shuai, Yang, Pang Wensheng, and two armed plainclothes police put Mr. Feng in a vehicle without any explanation and headed straight to Feng Kun's home in Dagang.
Prior to that, the university authorities had informed Feng Kun's mother not to go to work in the afternoon but to wait for the officers from the university. The message was delivered via Li Yaokai, Party Office head of the Sales Department in the Tianjin Petrochemicals Company. Feng Kun's mother did not comply with their request, went to work anyway, and refused to meet with university officials. The group of people waited outside Feng Kun's home in an attempt to intercept his mother but were unsuccessful. Finally they went to the Silihua neighborhood committee office and announced that they had delivered a "Statement of the Decision to Revoke a Student's Registration at Tianjin University of Commerce." The statement claimed that Feng Kun's registration was revoked according to the university's official decision, but the details of that decision were not read to Feng Kun, nor shown to him. After reading the statement, they added a notice at the end, saying that the "Decision" was read to Feng Kun. Pang Wensheng urged Mr. Feng to sign it, but he refused. In the end they left him at the door of his home and drove away.
