Police from Xinwen Mining Group (Shandong Province) Arrest Four Falun Dafa Practitioners
(Clearwisdom.net) On the morning of February 22, 2007, Public Security Section Chief Gao Lei and Chinese Communist Party Secretary Zhao Mou of Xinwen Mining Group Huaheng Mining Corporation (formerly Xinwen Mining Bureau Wennan Coal Mine) brought more than ten people with them, broke into Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Qin's home and arrested her. They took three Falun Dafa books that belonged to her. Then they broke into Falun Dafa practitioner Niu Rongtian's home, confiscated all her Falun Dafa materials and arrested her. In the afternoon, they broke into Falun Dafa practitioner Ren Zhizhen's home, searched her house, confiscated all the Falun Dafa materials and arrested her. The next day, they broke into Ren Zhizhen's home again and arrested her husband Zhao Wenzhu (who is about 50 years old and recently started to learn Falun Dafa).
Ms. Liu Qin is 63 years old. On June 13, 2006, while she was putting up some Falun Dafa truth-clarifying materials at Wennan Township, Xintai City, the deputy director of the Wennan Local Police Station Li Xin and several policemen arrived at the scene. They beat Ms. Liu badly and then took her to the local police station to be violently interrogated. The next day, they sent her to Xintai Detention Center, and extorted 1,400 yuan from her family. Liu Qin left the evil den with dignity on June 27. The Public Security Section of Huaheng Mining Corporation wanted to arrest Liu Qin and send her to Wangcun Labor Re-Education Camp in Zibo City to further persecute her. Because of this, Liu Qin was forced to leave her home. She returned home at the end of 2006 and had hidden at home since then. After the Lunar Chinese New Year, Liu Qin was discovered by police from the Public Security Section when she was visiting her friends and relatives, and they arrested her again.
Ms. Niu Rongtian is over 40 years old. On the night of January 3, 2003 when she was giving out truth-clarifying materials, someone reported her to the 610 Office at the Public Security Section. She was arrested and sent to Wennan Coal Mine. Zhang Chuanyu, Gao Lei, Yang Bin, Niu Xuedong, Song Zeng and Zhang Mou from the Public Security Section beat her up and illegally detained her for two days and two nights. They also extorted 5,000 yuan from her family. On the morning of January 6, Ms. Niu was sent to Wennan Women's Labor Re-Education Camp to be persecuted. She was there for 80 days. When she was incarcerated in the 3rd Team, team leader Zhao told her while striking her head, "You are here to 'transform' your thoughts." Niu Rongtian was not allowed to sleep or go to the toilet. There were two persons assigned to watch her closely and torture her in turn. She was force-fed three times, causing her mouth to bleed, and she was forced to do hard labor for more than 10 hours daily. Ms. Niu returned home on April 5, 2003. Since then, the local police have continuously followed and harassed her.
Ms. Ren Zhizhen is about 50 years old. She was reported by someone in January 2002 when she was giving out truth-clarifying materials. Ms. Ren was arrested by the Xintai 610 Office and the Public Security Section of Wennan Coal Mine, and was sent to the Public Security Section (Zhang Chuanyu was the leader and Gao Lei was the driver). After two days, Ren Zhizhen was sent to Jinan No. 2 Women's Labor Re-Education Camp to be persecuted for 50 days. In the labor camp, she was subjected to forced brainwashing attempts (being forced to watch the self-immolation video and other false and slanderous materials), was deprived of sleep for a long period of time, and was not allowed to use the toilet. Ms. Ren was also verbally abused and forced to stand for a long period of time. In the later stages of her detention, she was forced to do hard labor for more than 10 hours every day. The perpetrators also extorted 6,000 yuan from her without giving any receipt. They often harassed Ms. Ren after she was released and sent home.
At present, most of the leaders at Huaheng Mining Corporation understand the truth of Falun Dafa, and they know that Falun Dafa practitioners are good people. Most of them try to avoid confronting practitioners now. But Public Security Section leader Gao Lei still takes the initiative to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners even during the Lunar Chinese New Year celebration. Good is rewarded with good, and evil is met with retribution. On February 6, 2006, police from the Public Security Section searched the homes of two elderly practitioners, Ms. Song and Ms. Gao, and locked them up at the Public Security Section overnight. They also extorted 1,200 yuan from Ms. Song's family and 500 yuan from Ms. Gao's family. On February 15, an explosion took place when the police were handling old explosives. Four people died on the spot and two were injured. Among them, three of the dead and one of the wounded were from the Public Security Section. Policeman Liu Bingli, who had monitored Falun Dafa practitioners for a long period of time, was blown up completely. Many personnel from the Public Security Section were either reduced to a lower rank or were fired.
