Over Twenty Falun Gong Practitioners Recently Arrested in Guan County, Shandong Province
(Clearwisdom.net) From July 1 to July 23, 2008, over twenty Falun Gong practitioners in Guan County, Shandong Province and nearby townships were arrested by the police and illegally incarcerated.
On June 20, personnel from the local 610 Office held a meeting on the 6th floor of the police department to discuss the persecution of Falun Gong. They labeled Falun Gong practitioners as their "most dangerous enemy." The authorities have installed at least 15 surveillance cameras at the main crossroads within the county. In the city itself they have installed at least 2,430 cameras and monitor them around the clock.
Guan County authorities have divided the county into four districts for the persecution. The districts fall under the responsibility of three deputy police chiefs, Xie Zunyi, Han Hongguang and Wang Junchao, and Discipline Committee Secretary Feng Shuhe. They have mobilized the Domestic Security Teams, Safety Assurance Teams, Public Security Teams, Criminal Investigation Teams, Financial Investigation Teams and Police Assistance Teams, and all the police stations from the various townships to carry out the persecution. In order to motivate police officers to carry out these evil deeds, they have conferred commendation medals to 25 deputy section heads and 18 police station chiefs.
On July 1, 2008, after the regular County Politics and Law Committee meeting ended, the police mobilized to carry out massive arrests. They barged into the homes of practitioners in the middle of the night. They broke the door locks and entered the homes like burglars. They took the practitioners' money and personal property for their personal use. They also created chaos in the streets, blocked the roads and arrested practitioners at their workplaces. Their evil deeds are numerous and some examples are listed below.
