Mr. Li Hongwei Gravely Ill Due to Persecution in Shenxin Labor Camp, Shenyang City
(Clearwisdom.net) In October, 2006, police from the Shandongmiao Police Station in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province broke into practitioner Wang Yanjie's home. They arrested her and her guests, Mr. Li Hongwei, Mr. Shi Geng, and Mr. Li Yang. Mr. Li Hongwei is being persecuted severely in the Shenxin Labor Camp, and he is currently suffering from appendicitis and is in a state of hyperthermia. Still, the labor camp refuses to release him.
After police broke into Ms. Wang's home, they kicked and punched Ms. Wang and the other practitioners, then arrested them. They ransacked Ms. Wang's home and took away her computer.
Mr. Li Hongwei, in his 40s, is an employee of the Second Real Estate Company of the Shenhe District Real Estate Bureau in Shenyang City. His home is in Yiyou Neighborhood, in Shenhe District, Shenyang City. Mr. Li started practicing Dafa in 1998 and has benefited from the practice physically and mentally. His diabetes disappeared, and his fatty liver condition was cured. After Mr. Li was arrested, he was sentenced to one year of forced labor. He is currently detained in the First Division of the Shenxin Labor Camp. His wife is unemployed and they have a child in elementary school. Since both Mr. Li and his wife have to support their elderly parents as well, his family is in a great financial crisis since his arrest. Because Mr. Li refused to cooperate with the police and give up Falun Gong, the police severely tortured him. Currently, he is suffering from appendicitis and is in a state of hyperthermia. However, the labor camp shows no mercy and refuses to release him.
Ms. Wang Yanjie, in her 50s, is currently detained in the Masanjia Labor Camp. Within three months of being detained, Ms. Wang developed a severe illness, and her life was in danger. The labor camp officials extorted a large amount of money from Ms. Wang's family and released her.
Mr. Shi Geng, 44 years old, has been detained in the detention center since his arrest. On April 4, 2007, the Shenhe District Court held a trial and sentenced him to three years in prison. Mr. Shi's parents hired a lawyer to defend him, and the lawyer was able to convince the court to allow him to serve his term outside prison. Mr. Shi went back home on April 4, 2007.
Fellow practitioners and all kind people, please send forth your strong righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in the detention centers and labor camps and resist practitioners' sentences issued by the Shenhe District Court and Shenyang City Judicial Bureau. We hope the detained practitioners are released from these evil places and return to the Fa-rectification soon.
