Three of Mr. Tian Fujin's Family Again Sentenced to Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Six members of Mr. Tian Fujin's family are Falun Gong practitioners. During the nine years that Falun Dafa has been persecuted, all six have been sentenced to imprisonment or forced labor. Mr. Tian's home was also searched several times and most of his property was stolen by the local police. The family has been unable to reunite for nine years. The total sum of their detention terms is 30 years.
On June 5, 2008, agents from the Horqin District 610 Office and police officers from the Yongqing Police Station searched Mr. Tian's home once more and confiscated his property. People involved in the search included Baojirimutu, Li Fengqin, director of Yongqing residents' committee, and police officers from the Yongqing Police Station. Mr. Tian Fujin, Ms. Liu Xiurong, Ms. Tian Fang, and Mr. Tian Shuangjiang , who is Mr. Tian Fujin's son, were arrested and detained. Only a 12-year-old child was left at home. Mr. Tian Shuangjiang was released the next day. But his parents and sister were detained at the Hexi Detention Center and subjected to abuse.
During the Olympic Games, Ms. Liu Xiurong was transferred to the Ganqika Town Detention Center, where she developed heart disease from being abused. The authorities of the detention center asked her family members to pay money so that Ms. Liu could receive a check-up. Ms. Tian Xin, the second daughter of Ms. Liu, went to visit her mother after she was released from the labor camp. Ms. Tian Xin did not have any money, so the guards lied and said that Ms. Liu had recovered and it was no longer necessary to do a check-up. Ms. Tian Xin asked to see her mother, but was refused. Meanwhile Ms. Tian Fang was transferred to the Naiman Prefecture Detention Center. Wang Bo, director of the State Security Division in Horqin District, continually harassed Mr. Tian Shuangjiang and demanded that Mr. Tian go to the police department frequently. Also, Wang Bo went to his home to harass him. As a result, Mr. Tian Shuangjiang was forced to become homeless and has been unable to return. Because of cooling temperatures, Ms. Tian Xin took cotton-padded clothes to the detention center for her parents and sister. However, the guards in the detention center refused to accept the clothes and tried to force her to buy the costly clothes sold in the detention center.
On November 3, 2008, the Horqin District Court tried three members of Mr. Tian Fujin's family. They were charged with attempting to overthrow the state and violating the law. They were suffering from severe abuse. As a result, Mr. Tian Fujin was in a somewhat muddled state; Ms. Liu Xiurong's voice was hoarse, and Ms. Tian Fang and her parents were extremely emaciated. At first, the judge questioned the three individually. He asked Mr. Tian Fujin if Ms. Tian Fang had been involved in making Falun Gong materials. Mr. Tian Fujin said no. Then he asked Ms. Tian Fang the same question, and Ms. Tian Fang said no. Later, the judge brought the family together, and asked Ms. Tian Fang the same question again. Ms. Tian Fang responded with no. But the judge had deceived her by saying that Mr. Tian Fujin had already acknowledged this to be true. At that time, Mr. Tian Fujun was too weak to defend himself. Ms. Liu spoke with kindness and said that the material was for saving people and providing them with a good future. The judge ignored her and proceeded to convict them. The so-called "evidence" for convicting Ms. Tian Fang was that she had distributed articles written by the founder of Falun Gong in the detention center. Ms. Tian Fang was released from the Huhehaote City Women's Prison in September 2007, and because she had committed "crimes" within five years of her release, the substantiating "evidence" fell into the category of a repeat offender, whereby, she was given a severe penalty.
On December 10, 2008, the Horqin District Court in Tongliao City, Inner Mongolian, sentenced Mr. Tian Fujin to three years of imprisonment, Ms. Liu Xiurong, Mr. Tian Fujin's wife, four years of imprisonment, and Ms. Tian Fang five years of imprisonment.
