Two Innocent Young Women Falun Gong Practitioners in Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province Sentenced to Ten Years of Imprisonment
(Clearwisdom.net) Because two young women in their twenties from Shuangcheng City in Heilongjiang Province remained steadfast in their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, CCP agents sentenced them to 10 years of imprisonment in 2002. Currently they are still incarcerated in Harbin Women's Prison.
Ms. Wang Li was arrested in 2002. At that time she was around twenty years old. She practiced Falun Gong together with her mother, Yan Shufen. On July 8, 2002, four to five police cars drove up to their house. Many policemen got out and surrounded them. They forcibly took Ms. Wang Li's mother away and ransacked the house. Wang Li and her aunt were present in the house at that time. They were horrified by what they saw and tried to stop the police from taking Yan Shufen away. The police could not be persuaded, and took Wang Li and her aunt away as well. Not long after this they were locked up at the Shuangcheng Detention Center, and Wang Li was given a sentence of 10 years in prison. Her mother and aunt were sentenced to 13 years and 12 years of imprisonment respectively. So far, they have been incarcerated together in the Harbin Women's Prison, and have been repeatedly tortured there. Wang Li is suffering greatly and in a state of emotional trauma. Ten years of imprisonment is a heavy blow for a young woman who is just starting her life.
We appeal to international organizations to pay attention to Wang Li's case. We hope that an independent investigation of her case can be carried out in Heilongjiang Province.

Ms. Zhang Jianhui was only about 20 years old when she was arrested in 2002. She always had poor health since she was young and her parents were unemployed, so her family was very poor. Zhang Jianhui and her father started to practice Falun Gong, and her whole family has benefited greatly as a result. When Jiang's regime started to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, Zhang Jianhui went together with her parents to Beijing several times to appeal for Falun Gong. Shuangcheng City Communist officials Zhang Guofu and Jin Wanzhi controlled the city police and also the local police from the Zhanqian Police Station, and they all viewed this family as a thorn in their side. They monitored them for extended periods of time. The family was finally forced to sell their house and go from place to place to avoid further persecution.
In 2002, police officer Zhang Guofu colluded with the Harbin City Anti-Riot Team to arrest Zhang Jianhui and her father, who had just been bailed out of the Changlinzi Forced Labour Camp for medical reasons. This young lady, who was in her twenties, was sentenced to ten years of imprisonment and has been incarcerated at the Harbin Women's Prison since then. Her father, Zhang Tao, died as a result of being extensively tortured after he was sent back to Changlinzi Forced Labour Camp. Her mother, Yao Caiwei, was incarcerated at the Wanjia Forced Labour Camp for one year. After she was released, she deeply missed her husband and daughter. As a result of her grief and mental suffering, her health began to deteriorate and currently she is unable to take care of herself.
We hope that international organizations will pay attention to this matter. Please act now and help secure the release of Zhang Jianhui so that she can be united with her family.
