Husband Given Illegal Prison Sentence; Wife Sent to Brainwashing Center
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Jiang Zonglin was formerly the superintendent of the Mingyuan Architecture Design Institute, a part of the Chengdu City government. On August 2, 2007, he was arrested at home by police. Jiang's family never received any legal documentation and only heard much later that he was subjected to brainwashing. He was not allowed to sleep for sixty straight hours.
On September 27 and October 10 of 2008, Wuhou Court set a trial for Jiang Zonglin, Zhong Fangqiong and eight other practitioners. Defense lawyers retained by the family pointed out that no law defines Falun Gong as a cult or illegal organization. Jiang Zonglin did no harm to society and should be released. However, the court handed Jiang Zonglin a five-year sentence.
On Monday, December 8, 2008, which is the petition reception day for the Sichuan Province government, Jiang's wife Xie Chengxin went to the government office to appeal for her husband. However, she was taken away and threatened by Fuqin Street 610 Office member Xie Shinong, policemen Wu Lirong and Jinqin community officer Ye Kaixing.
On December 12, 2008, Xie Chengxin and Jiang Longyin were clarifying the truth at Zhaojue Temple, and they were reported by a monk. Officers from the Qinglong Police Station then arrested them. In the afternoon, they notified the Fuqin Police Station and the Fuqin Street Committee to pick them up. Xie Shinong then sent these two practitioners to the Jingniu Law Education Center for brainwashing. The family pointed out that this was illegal. Xie Shinong said, "You go ahead and accuse me!" He then shuffled the family to the Jingniu 610 Office.
The Director of the Jingniu Brainwashing Center is Li, and two people that work there are Li Daquan from the Simaqiao Street Committee and Xia from the Hehuachi Street Committee. There is another person there named Li Lian. Two of them are retirees receiving a salary from the brainwashing center, and they get bonuses according to the number of Falun Gong practitioners being detained. In addition, they get an allowance when they sleep overnight at the brainwashing center and get call-back pay for the weekend, which is 20 yuan per day.
After Falun Gong practitioners arrive here, they are isolated, and each person is monitored by two people. The people doing the monitoring are usually unemployed or retirees hired by the center. The room is 24 square meters. There are three beds, a long desk and a TV that broadcasts CCP propaganda around the clock at a high volume. The monitors are to report to the center authorities if the practitioners try to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to them. They forbid the practitioners from reciting Dafa books, doing the Falun Gong exercises or talking to them about Falun Gong. The practitioners are forced to watch the propaganda programs all day. At 8 p.m. every night, guards lock a practitioner and two monitoring people in the room and unlock the door at 7:30 a.m. The outside is monitored by three guards, and the yard is guarded by two large dogs.
