Mr. Li Qingbo, a Practitioner from Wuhan City, Hubei Province, Detained Soon After Being Released from Three Years of Forced Labor
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Li Qingbo, a practitioner from Wuhan City, Hubei Province, was sentenced to three years of forced labor and detained in the Shenzhen City Second Labor Camp. Right after he was released on January 31, 2007, officials from the Jiangan District 610 Office of Wuhan City arrested him and secretly escorted him back to Wuhan City. Currently, Mr. Qingbo is detained in the Chenjiaji Brainwashing Center in Jiangan District.
Over the past several years, Mr. Qingbo's father has been sent to the emergency room after he had several heart attacks which were caused by the persecution. Li Yingjie, head of the Jiangan District 610 Office, has deceived Mr. Qingbo's mother many times. Recently, Qingbo's father's health had deteriorated and twice the hospitals sent out a notice saying that he was on the verge of death. Li Yingjie and party secretary Yan of the Chenjiaji Brainwashing Center tried to coerce Mr. Qingbo to give up his Falun Gong practice and write the "five statements" (similar to the three statements)by using his father's condition as an incentive.
Mr. Li Qingbo is 44 years old, and holds a Bachelor's degree. He worked as an engineer at the Changjiang Hydroelectric Power Committee of Wuhan City and lived in the Changwei Dormitory #49-402 in Tijiao Residential Area of Wuhan City. After he began practicing Falun Gong, he behaved strictly according to the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." Shortly after beginning Dafa cultivation practice, all of Mr. Qingbo's illnesses disappeared. After the persecution of Falun Gong started in July 20, 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal to the government, to tell them that Falun Dafa is good. Afterwards, he was placed under surveillance. Then his workplace fired him using his absence as the excuse.
During the past seven years, Mr. Qingbo has been sentenced to forced labor twice and has been detained for more than four years, which has included about two years in various places in Jiangan District. In March 2000, he was sent to Jinlong Restaurant in Wuhan City to "study" for a month. In June 2000, Mr. Qingbo was arrested at his home and detained 15 days before he was sent to a brainwashing center for three months. In December 2000, he was detained again for 30 days. In March 2001, Mr. Qingbo was detained in a brainwashing center for nine and a half months. In April 2002, he was sentenced to forced labor and detained in the Hewan Labor Camp in Wuhan City for a year. In April 2003, right after he was released from the labor camp, officials from the Jiangan District 610 Office arrested him and took him to the brainwashing center. Mr. Qingbo was persecuted there for over a month.
In July 2004, police from the Jiangan District Police Department ransacked Mr. Qingbo's home. To avoid further persecution, he left his home and went to Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province to look for a job. In December 2004, he was arrested while distributing Falun Gong materials and sentenced to three years of forced labor. Mr. Qingbo was detained and persecuted at the Shenzhen City Second Labor Camp.
On January 31, 2007, right after Mr. Qingbo was released from the labor camp, officials from the Jiangan District 610 Office went to Shenzhen City and arrested him. They escorted him back to Wuhan City and detained him in the Chenjiaji Brainwashing Center, where he is currently being detained. Mr. Qingbo's family has tried to appeal for him, but so far they have failed.
