CCP Agents in Zhuolu County, Hebei Province Arrest Practitioners in the Name of the Olympic Games
(Clearwisdom.net) In the name of securing stability for the upcoming Olympic Games, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) agents in Zhuolu County, Hebei Province have been monitoring and registering all Falun Gong practitioners in the area. Under the pretext of checking their resident ID cards, the county government and police station are going from house to house, interrogating and examining county residents. Their goal is to monitor Falun Gong practitioners, Tibetans, religious groups, and petitioners. Meanwhile, police officers of the Zhuolu County 610 Office have repeatedly harassed Dafa practitioners who are supposedly "key characters" and tried to force them to sign documents promising that they will give up their beliefs. For example, agents from the 610 Office, together with chiefs of the Wujiagou Coal Mine and officers from the mine police station, forced practitioners on record to register. They also required their family members to sign the guarantee statement and fill in the practitioner's ID number, threatening to dismiss them from work if they did not comply. Below are some recent persecution cases.
1. Practitioner Ms. Li Guirong from Zhuolu Town, Zhuolu County, Arrested
On the morning of May 23, 2008, a gang from Zhuolu Town government, police station and Caojiayuan Village, broke into the home of 60-year-old Ms. Li Guirong, who lives in Caojiayuan Village. Ms. Li clarified the truth about Dafa to them. Yan Tao (male), officer from Zhuolu Town Police Station, immediately called in eight police officers, including Zheng Xianhui (male) and Liu Gengjun (male) from Zhuolu Town Police Station, and he called Dong Fei (male) from the Political Security Division. They searched Ms. Li's home and seized all her Dafa books, truth-clarification materials, and a satellite TV receiver. Her husband tried to stop the mistreatment of his wife. Finally, both Ms. Li and her husband were arrested. On that same afternoon, police officers from the Zhuolu County Police Department handcuffed her and took her to the Zhangjiakou City Detention Center for administrative detention.
