Two Ethnically Korean Practitioners in China Arrested by the Police
(Clearwisdom.net) Two Falun Gong practitioners, Ms. Jin Yushun, a seventy-two-year-old Korean farmer in Qushui Village, Tumen City, Jilin Province, and Mr. Xuan Minghua, a fifty-eight-year-old bee keeper, were arrested from their homes by police from the Yuegong City Police Station on March 30, 2009. At the police station, the police tortured them during interrogation. Ms. Jin was tortured and beaten for nine hours. Her face was bruised, swollen and beyond recognition. The beatings left her deaf in her left ear and with loose teeth. The two were released within a half hour of each other around 9:00 p.m. on March 31.
Ms. Jin is a widowed farmer of Korean descent. Her two sons and daughter are grown and have established their own families. The eldest son is working for a Korean company as a manager in Vietnam.
Mr. Xuan is Korean too, and his daughter works in Korea. Last year, he stopped keeping bees to care full-time for his eighty-year-old parents. When the police arrested him, his parents were suddenly left with no one to support or care for them, and they were extremely anxious for Mr. Xuan's return.
At 1:30 p.m. on March 30, two police cars arrived in Qusui Village, carrying seven or eight police officers from the Yuegong Police Station. Using two villagers as guides, they broke into Ms. Jin's house and ransacked it, taking away a copy of Zhuan Falun and a copy of Hong Yin, thirty Shen Yun DVDs, and other items. Afterward, they forced Ms. Jin into a police car. Then, they went to Mr. Xuan's house, ransacked it and took away Zhuan Falun and other Dafa materials, and forced him into a police car also.
The police took the two practitioners to the police station, jailed them separately, and beat and tortured them. On March 31st, a police officer of Korean descent came into the interrogation room and beat Ms. Jin for nine hours to get her to reveal the source of the Shen Yun DVDs. He slapped her face until he was tired, and then he punched her chin, causing her to bleed. Since she still refused to reveal anything, he struck her head and then stomped on her back and legs. He dragged her by her hair and swirled her in circles. When she raised her hand to ward him off, he stumbled and almost fell, and subsequently beating her with a renewed frenzy.
The police tried to force Ms. Jin to burn Dafa books with a lighter and to stomp on Dafa materials and photos. They said if she did it, they would let her go immediately, otherwise they would sentence her harshly. She knew that it was a trick, especially when she saw an officer trying to take pictures. She sternly refused.
At 9:00 p.m., after all their methods failed, the police released her, while Mr. Xuan had been released half an hour earlier.
