Jilin Province Police Follow the CCP's Orders to Persecute Falun Gong and Use the 2008 Olympics as an Excuse
(Clearwisdom.net) Several days ago, Jilin Province police officials held an internal meeting. They were given secret orders with the following main points: "With the 2008 Olympic Games approaching, the Communist Party will investigate Falun Gong practitioners, one by one, from a list, because Falun Gong has now established a strong foothold in more than 80 countries around the world. For example, Chen Shui-Bian, the president of Taiwan, publicly supports Falun Gong, and Falun Gong in China is again on the rise. Falun Gong is now able to hold its own against the Party, both financially and politically. Officers within the police system were told not to be indifferent nor relax and to investigate Falun Gong practitioners one by one in Jilin Province, in order to guarantee the successful opening of the Olympics Games."
Prior to the Chinese New Year, Changchun City Judicial Bureau head Zhang Wenqing held a meeting at the Changbaishan Hotel. He stated the authorities planned to investigate Falun Gong practitioners in Changchun City, using the Olympics as an excuse. District offices were told to hire unemployed people to patrol bus stations and train stations, to see if any Falun Gong practitioners were going to Beijing to appeal.
Police in Changchun City, Jilin Province attempt to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, using the 2008 Olympics as an excuse
Recently, a source from inside the police department revealed that because of the 2008 Olympics, the Changchun City Police have issued an order to all police stations in the city that all police officers must return to their units, including those on assignment in other cities and those who were visiting family and friends, as a new round of persecution was going to be announced. Falun Gong practitioner Li Wei was arrested at the end of February by officers from the Ziyoudalu Police Station, and officers from the Hongqi Police Station located on Hongqi Street harassed practitioners at their homes within the precinct. Officers from Puyang Street Police Station harassed one practitioner in front of his house in the evening, and they interrogated people who visited this practitioner and asked for their phone numbers. It is thought these incidents are the result of the new persecution scheme.
