The Persecution of Ms. Shi Yun and Her Husband, Mr. Jiang Yuliu, in Kunming City
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Shi Yun and Mr. Jiang Yuliu are teachers in No. 2 Vocational Secondary School in Kunming City, Yunnan Province. They individually wrote public letters to their school and Education Commission in June 2004, telling of the immense mental and physical improvements they experienced after they began practicing Falun Gong. They pointed out in particular that it was wrong to persecute Falun Gong and they hoped that their colleagues and supervisors in the school and Education Commission could understand the truth of the situation.
Wan Jianguo, the president of the school, colluded with staff from the 610 Office and the Panlong District Police Station in Kunming City to harass the couple. In July 2004, the police from the National Security Group in the Panlong District and school leaders deceived Mr. Jiang Yuliu and took him to Dapingba No. 2 Forced Labor Camp.
His pregnant wife, Ms. Shi Yun, went from one place to another, campaigning for his cause. She clarified the truth about her husband being persecuted to the authorities at the National Security Group in the Panlong District, the Public Security Bureau, the 610 Office, etc., and demanded his immediate release. The authorities pressured and even threatened her. In particular, Wan Jianguo, the president of the No. 2 Vocational Secondary School, actively cooperated with the 610 Office and constantly threatened to dismiss her from the school.
Just before the delivery of the baby, Shi Yun requested many times that her husband be allowed to come home and help take care of their baby. Officials of the No. 2 Forced Labor Camp agreed to let him go to the hospital to visit his wife, under the condition that the school would pick him up afterwards. But Wan Jianguo and other school leaders strongly objected. Ms. Shi had to care for the newborn alone and went through a long and difficult two years and seven months.
The No. 2 Vocational Secondary School officials did not arrange any work for Mr. Jiang after he was released in December 2006. He went to the school and Education Commission many times, but the school officials kept shifting the responsibility to others with all kinds of excuses. For more than ten months, the family of three had to rely on Shi Yun's income alone.
On September 30, 2007, the police from Xiaonan Police Station, the Wuhua Division, and the Public Security Bureau of Kunming City arrested Ms. Shi as she was mailing a letter and subsequently unlawfully searched their home and confiscated their property. Six people not wearing police uniforms or presenting any identification seized a laptop, a desktop, a printer, and a book. They also took Ms. Shi to the detention center in Wuhua District.
On November 1, with the approval of the Procuratorate in the Wuhua District, Kunming City, the Wuhua Division, the Public Security Bureau of Kunming City issued an arrest warrant and continued to illegally detain Shi Yun in the Wuhua District Detention Center.
