The Persecution Suffered by Ms. Wang Xiangling from Chifeng, Inner Mongolia
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Wang Xiangling is a Falun Gong practitioner from the Songshan District, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia. In March 2000, local police officer Liu went to Ms. Wang's home and told her to sign a guarantee statement that she would not practice Falun Gong. Ms. Wang refused. As a result she was taken to a local police station in the Songshan District. She was forced to hand in almost 300 yuan for food and lodging. After being detained for 15 days, she was sent to another police station in the Songshan District and was forced to sign a "statement" that abused and slandered Dafa and Master. She also paid 5,000 yuan as "earnest money".
When she returned to her company, the chief of the security department, surnamed Ding, tried to force Ms. Wang to sign a guarantee that she would not practice Falun Gong, threatening to fire her if she didn't. Ms. Wang was forced to resign. With help from fellow practitioners, Ms. Wang got a job in a store run by a fellow practitioner, but the police pressured the fellow practitioner to not hire Ms. Wang. She ended up working for herself.
Xicheng Local Police Station in the Hongshan District and people from the residential district still went to her home and the place she did business to harass her repeatedly.
In December 2000, Ms. Wang went to Beijing to appeal for an end to the persecution. Then Hongshan District Police Sub-bureau officers went to her home to arrest her. She was compelled to become homeless in order to avoid being arrested from home. The authorities issued a warrant for her arrest. They went to her home, her daughter's school, and her relatives to harass them many times. Her daughter suffered both physically and mentally. They also conspired with the secretary from her husband's company to pressure him to turn in his wife. Under such formidable pressure, her husband was compelled to divorce Ms. Wang.
