Jiamusi District Court Stops Ma Duo's Family from Appealing
(Clearwisdom.net) At around 11:00 a.m. on July 2, 2008, friends and family of Falun Gong practitioner Ma Duo, who had already been illegally sentenced to imprisonment by the Jiamusi District Court, came to the Jiamusi Middle Court with their Beijing-based lawyer. They were trying to look for Ms. Song Peixia to deliver Ma Duo's personnel records to her. However, Song said that she had no time in the morning and made them come back in the afternoon at 1:15 p.m.
That afternoon, Ma's family and friends returned to look for Song. However, the moment they entered the building, they found Jiamusi City's National Security Team and 610 Office member Chen Wanyou sitting inside. When Ma's family and friends came to Song's office, Song became very rude and ordered them to leave, with only the lawyer allowed to remain behind. Ma Duo's family and friends had to wait in another room. Song talked with the lawyer for a while, and then asked him to photocopy the personal records. She specifically asked him to go to a particular office in the building and nowhere else. Throughout the process she found all sorts of ways to create delays, and forced the lawyer to spend a large amount of time on minute technical issues. In the end, she took 20 yuan worth of photocopying fees, but refused to give a receipt.
Throughout this process, Chen Wanyou was making calls on his cellphone. He called everyone who was involved in the persecution. Song also continued to make calls during the process.
It was 3:00 p.m. when Song told the lawyer and Ma Duo's family and friends that they could leave. As they approached the gate, they realized that the gate was blocked by dozens of policemen. The head of the Jiamusi 610 Office Liu Yan brought his force, including Wang Fujin, Yin Zuqiang, Yu Zhiyong, Lou Jiangling, and others. People from the Jiamusi Public Security Bureau, Qianjin Division Bureau, Yonghe Detention Center, Jiamusi Rural Division Bureau, Changhong Detention Center were all present.
The policemen grabbed the lawyer by his arms and made an effort to take him away. The lawyer warned them not to, and they tried to forcibly take him to an isolated room in the building. Later, Ma Duo's family and friends were forcibly taken to the Changhong Detention Center. An older lady who was present and unrelated to the situation was also taken away. More than two hours later, the lawyer was released.
Before this, at approximately 2:30 p.m, Chen Wanyou, together with four other policemen, had already arrested Ma Duo's mother Qiu Yuxia, who was awaiting consultation with a doctor at the Jiamusi Center Hospital, as well as three other friends. At approximately 2:00 p.m., policemen brought Ms. Qiu to Changhong Detention Center. Qiu Yuxia and a friend who helped bring Ma Duo's case files were also handcuffed.
Changhong Detention Center Chief Xin Hui, Deputy Chief Teng Yan as well as former Jiamusi National Security Team Leader Li Wanyi's gang were all accomplices in the illegal arrest of Qiu Yuxia and Ma Duo's family and friends. Xin and Teng shouted at them, "I'm going to sit here and wait, let's see where Qiu Yuxia can run!"
At approximately 7:00 p.m., Ma's family were forced to pay 1,000 yuan. They were only released after signing Li Wanyi's fabricated documents. It has been reported that Qiu Yuxia and six other friends were later arrested again and taken to the Jiamusi Detention Center.
The explanation given to the public was that Falun Gong practitioners had attacked the Jiamusi Middle Court building, leading to their arrest. However, it is apparent that Jiamusi's 610 Office and the courts had planned the whole thing and illegally arrested the Falun Gong practitioners.
