Family of Five Arrested in Qingdao City, Shandong Province for Practicing Falun Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 16, 2006, at around 6:00 a.m., Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Xue of Jiaozhou City, a suburb of Qingdao City, was awakened by the sound of someone pounding on her door. Local 610 Office personnel and public security police officers, totaling around 16, forced their way in and ransacked her house. The confiscated a computer, CD-burner, copy machine, fax machine and personal items including some United States currency. At the same time, they illegally arrested 30-year-old Li Xue and her father Mr. Li Yuzhen. On the following day they also arrested Li Xue's sister Li Mei and her older brother Li Jun.
Ms. Li Xue's mother, Ms. Song Guixiang, who was not home at the time, was not arrested. However, on January 22, 2007, she was turned in by a police officer's relative. Another Dafa practitioner in the area, Ms. Song Guilan, was also arrested.
Ms. Li Xue and her father, Li Yuzhen, were taken to Jiaozhou City's Beiguan No. 3 platoon for interrogation. There they were detained for 15 days. Afterwards, Li Xue was transferred to the Qingdao City Dashen Detention Center, where she is still being held. After interrogation, Li Mei was detained and Li Gun was sent back to where he works and put under strict surveillance.
After being detained for 15 days, Song Guixiang was transferred to Shandong Province's Wang Cun Women's Labor Camp. Authorities planned to keep her in the labor camp for two years, but on February 17 she walked right out of the camp with her righteous thoughts and returned home safely. The authorities intend to keep Song Guilan in the labor camp for 18 months. Her husband has passed away and her 86-year-old mother is left at home alone.
In order to persecute them, officials in Jiaozhou are withholding pension money belonging to Mr. Li Yuzhen and his wife Ms. Song Guixiang. Li Jun's salary has also been withheld. The whole amount totals about 5000 yuan per month. They are not even permitted basic living expenses.
On March 15, 2007, Jiaozhou Court was holding a so-called "court hearing." Li Xue, with strong righteous thoughts, refused to say that she was guilty and declared that Falun Dafa is good, that Dafa practitioners are good people and that she is not guilty. The judge had nothing to say, and the so-called "court hearing" ended with no result.
