(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Han Chonghui from Panjin City, Liaoning Province has been detained and persecuted by the local police for eight years. On July 20, 1999, Mr. Han went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, but he was illegally detained for four days by the local police department. On October 20 of the same year, Han Chonghui appealed again for Dafa, and he was detained for over three months. In December 2000, because he again went to Beijing to appeal, he was illegally sentenced to forced labor for two years, and was forced to leave home for one and a half years to avoid further persecution. In June 2003, he was arrested by the head of Lujia Village Police Station, Wang Dianjun. Mr. Han was beaten and illegally held in the detention center. With righteous thoughts, Han Chonghui escaped after 12 days. He had 4,100 yuan in his pocket when he was arrested, but that money was taken by the policemen, as were his mobile phone and his car. This property hasn't been returned to him.

On October 20, 2007, Mr. Han went to Shenyang on business. When he was buying an electric dictionary for his daughter, he was arrested by a dozen police officers from the Panjin Security Division. Another Dafa practitioner, Zhang Yawei from Panjin, and a practitioner from Jinzhou were arrested as well. The police took ten thousand yuan and a mobile phone from Han Chonghui. At around 5 o'clock that afternoon, the police illegally ransacked Han Chonghui's house. They confiscated a picture of the founder of Falun Dafa and Mr. Han's parents' two copies of the book Zhuan Falun. The police again detained Han Chonghui in the city detention center.

The police officers who were involved in these incidents include the State Security Division leader of Panjin, Pan Zhongze; the State Security Division leader of Shuangtai District, Panjin City, Miao Qishan; police officers from the Red Flag Police Station of Shuangtai District, Panjin City, including Chen Xuejun, Zhang Zhen and others.

After Han Chonghui was taken to the detention center, the police notified his family about Visiting Day, but when the family arrived, the police asked for money before they would be allowed to see Mr. Han. After the family gave the police 370 yuan, the officers told the family that the money was for room and board, and then did not allow the family to see Mr. Han. The family was forced to leave.

The family went to the Red Flag Police Station of Panjin City to ask about Han Chonghui's whereabouts. The police told them, "We can treat Falun Gong practitioners however we want. Your appeal won't be accepted anywhere."

The family then went to the State Security Division of Panjin City, where leader Pan Zhongze, deputy leader Li Yonghua, and the leader of Shuangtai District State Security Division Miao Qishan, kept shifting responsibility to one other. Mr. Han's parents, who are over 80 years old, climbed five floors of the building a few times a day looking for their son. Now their spirits are broken.

On October 25, police from the State Security Division of Panjin City sent Han Chonghui to Benxi Education (Brainwashing) Center, but he was turned away. Mr. Han was then sent to a brainwashing center in Fushun for persecution.

Han Chonghui has been holding a hunger strike to protest his illegal detention and persecution. He is in critical condition.
