Practitioners Arrested in Daxinsan Village, Shenyang City
(Clearwisdom.net) During July 2008, members of the Shenbeixin District Public Security Sub-Bureau of Shenyang City, arrested four Falun Dafa practitioners. Two were from Daxinsan Village. Practitioner Mr. Sun Yushu was arrested at his home. Others arrested were Huo Defu, Li Xiaojing, and Wang Shumei.
On July 19, 2008, at about 3:00 p.m., a police vehicle was parked in front of practitioner Sun Yushu's home. Villagers said that it was from the Town of Cailuobao police station. [Daxinsan is a village within the town of Cailuobao.] A short while later, two more police vehicles arrived from another area. Within moments, police were carrying boxes of Mr. Sun's possessions and loading them into the police vehicles. The police took many items, including several computers and a printer. According to the villagers, the local police, police from Cailuobao, members of the Shenyang City State Security Brigade, members of the Shenbeixin District Public Security Sub-Bureau, and 610 Office agents all participated in the arrest.
Mr. Sun Yushu, a practitioner in his sixties, is also known as "Old Sun." He works as a farmer in Daxinsan Village. He also works part-time as a tile installer, making more than a hundred yuan a day. Fellow villagers wondered why he always wore the same old clothes and asked him about it, but Mr. Sun usually smiled without saying anything.
When fellow villagers saw what the police took from Mr. Sun's home, they realized that the money "Old Sun" made from his side work was spent on making truth-clarification materials.
According to informed sources, the property taken by police from Mr. Sun's home was worth more than ten-thousand yuan and included a plate-making machine, one seven-layer CD copier, three printers, one computer, and about five cases of about 3,000 compact discs. The police interrogated him about where and how he obtained the equipment since he is only a farmer. The police could not comprehend that a farmer could use such high-tech computer equipment.
Two days after the police ransacked Mr. Sun's residence, Shenbeixin District Public Security Sub-bureau officers arrested several local Falun Gong practitioners.
At about 5:00 a.m. on July 21, 2008, practitioner Mr. Huo Defu in Daxinsan Village was arrested at his home by the Cailuobao police. The police ransacked his house and took his computer, printer, and other items. Another practitioner, Li Xiaojing, from the same village was also arrested. Also on the same day, officers from the Yinjia police station arrested Wang Shumei, a villager from Guangrong, Shenbeixin District.
Mr. Huo Defu, in his forties, a farmer from Daxinsan Village, goes by the nickname Xiao Huo. He is an extraordinarily good man and highly praised among his fellow villagers. Xiao Huo once had an accident in which his backbone was severely injured, making him unable to bend his back. Thus, he was unable to work and support his family. After Xiao Huo started practicing Falun Gong, his back injury disappeared, and his health miraculously recovered. Seeing what a wonderful thing happened to Xiao Huo, his entire family and many of his fellow villagers began practicing Falun Gong. Fellow villagers recalled that at that time, there were two practice sites in Daxinsan Village, where early each morning, the beautiful Falun Gong exercise music could be heard.
The arrested practitioners are currently being held at the Shenbeixin District Detention Center, but practitioners suspect that Ms. Wang Shumei is being held at the Shenyang City Detention Center, where visits by family members are not allowed.
As the Beijing Olympics approaches, using the pretext of "safeguarding the Olympics," the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is increasingly and rampantly arresting Falun Gong practitioners. According to reports posted on the Clearwisdom website, from late 2007 to the present, the number of Falun Gong practitioners arrested in connection to the Olympics has reached almost ten thousand. Since Shenyang City is one of the competition sites, the persecution of Falun Gong has become even more severe there.
At the beginning of this year, the head of Shenyang City's Public Security Bureau called a city-wide meeting of the chiefs of all police stations and precincts, and gave them orders to beat Falun Gong practitioners and people who appealed for justice. If an incident occurred, the police chief in charge of the area would be immediately fired. During the last few months, Shenyang City police have arrested many Falun Gong practitioners and three local practitioners were killed. In addition, local government agencies, police, and 610 Office personnel harassed many many practitioners. The persecution was particularly intense during a period of several days when Zhou Yongkang [a member of the Politburo Standing Committee] was in town and sixty-three Falun Gong practitioners were arrested.
