Anqiu City Court in Shandong Province Sentences Several Falun Gong Practitioners to Heavy Prison Terms
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners in Anqiu City including Ms. Wang Haiqing, Ms. Li Mingxia and Ms. Lin Shuzhen were sentenced in Anqiu City Court on October 8, 2008. Ms. Wang Haiqing was sentenced to 12 years, Ms. Li Mingxia 11 years and Ms. Lin Shuzhen 10 years.
The severe torture that she was subjected to caused Ms. Wang Haiqing to completely lose feeling in her legs. She can no longer stand or sit and has to lay down all the time. Due to being paralyzed from the lower back down, she can no longer control her bladder, yet she continued her hunger strike to protest the persecution. On September 23, the city court held a hearing, Ms. Wang Haiqing was carried to the court.
On May 12, 2008, at about 11 a.m, Ms. Wang Haiqing (45 years old) and Ms. Lin Shuzhen (40 years old), Ms. Li Mingxia (50 years old), as well as a total of six other practitioners were illegally arrested by Li Shenghua from the Anqiu City Police Department Domestic Security Division. Dong Linfang from the Chenbei Police Station participated along with several other policemen. After being brutally abused and arrested they were locked up at the Anqiu Detention Center. Ms. Wang Haiqing was severely beaten up by Dong Linfang. Dong harassed Ms. Wang, "I don't believe that I can't fix you." As a result of the brutal beating, Ms. Wang suffered internal injuries to her abdominal area, causing her to become incontinent and to suffer great pain.
Mr. Wang Qinhai was illegally arrested and is being held at the Anqiu Detention Center. The guards forced him to sit in a iron chair for 4 to 5 days, even though he was suffering from incontinence. Ms. Li Mingxia and Ms. Lin Shuzhen were detained at another detention center outside of Anqiu City.
Practitioners Mr. Wang Peizhi and Mr. Li Zhiguang are father and son-in-law. Both of them were transferred from Anqiu Detention Center to Jinan Men's Prison and sentenced to 10 years. On March 1, 2008, around 8 a.m., Mr. Wang Peizhi was at his daughter, Ms. Wang Xiaomin's, home. Suddenly, more than 20 policemen from Anqu City Domestic Security Division, Liujiarao Police Station and Jiage Police Station, broke into the house and arrested Mr. Wang using brutal force. Having complete strangers bursting into their home and witnessing the brutality of the attack on his grandfather, Ms. Wang's 8-year-old son was completely traumatized, shaking violently and crying loudly. The policemen ransacked their house, stealing their personal belongings such as a computer, TV and video player. At the same time, they also arrested Ms. Wang's husband Mr. Li Zhiguang while he was at his workplace, the power plant.
