(Clearwisdom.net) Agents from the 610 Office and local government extorted money from a Falung Gong practitioner Ms. Zheng Meiying when she was released from prison.

Ms. Zheng Meiying lives in Shacheng Town, Huailai County, Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province. She was put into the Hebei Province Women's Prison for practicing Falun Dafa in May 2002. When she was released on May 10, 2007, the Prison Administration ordered the Huailai County Government to "pick her up." Seven officers from Huailai County 610 Office, Police Department, Justice Department, and Shacheng Town government went there in three cars with Ms. Zheng's younger brother.

Several cars intercepted them when they were returning and were about two miles from the Huailai County Seat. The interceptors were Shacheng Town CCP Secretary Mei (first name unknown, gender unknown), police officer Han Yongze (male), and others from the Huailai County Police Department and Justice Department. They told Ms. Zheng Meiying that she would not be allowed to go home. They took her to the Huanglong Mountain Resort to detain her.

Ms. Zheng's parents had just met with their daughter after 5 years of separation, and they were told that their daughter was not allowed to go home. Ms. Zheng's mother was shocked and frightened. She had a heart attack, and her blood pressure was at 260 mmHg. Ms. Zheng and other family members rushed her to the county hospital. The 610 Office agents, police department, justice department, and government followed them and threatened to take Ms. Zheng away until she, her brother, and relatives wrote a guarantee statement that she would not leave the town (to appeal for Falun Gong). They also forced her pay them 5,000 yuan before releasing her.

Those officers then went to a restaurant and shamelessly squandered the extorted money.
