A Sixteen-Year-Old Dafa Practitioner Sentenced to Two Years of Labor Reeducation
[Minghui Net] Wang Yanlei, a boy born on October 29, 1984, is a resident of Beishijiawu village of the city of Langfang city in Hebei province.
Wang Yanlei started practicing Falun Gong in early 1999. Before he obtained Falun Dafa, he used to be a bad boy whom neither school nor his family could control. He was expelled from school for fighting with others.
Yanlei's mother was suffering from a painful disease. Upon hearing that practicing Falun Gong can make one healthy, she also wanted to practice. However, she could not read Zhuan Falun as she was illiterate. Therefore, she had to ask Yanlei to read it to her every day. As a result, Yanlei also learned, and was convinced that the principles taught in Zhuan Falun were very good. Thus he embarked on his own Dafa cultivation journey. Yanlei's father also started practicing Falun Dafa after he saw that his son had changed into a good boy and his wife's disease was cured without any medical treatment.
But shortly after Yanlei and his parents obtained Dafa, the Chinese government began to crack down on Falun Gong. In January 2000, Yanlei wrote down his experience of how he had changed from a bad boy who had many terrible habits into a modest and self-disciplined boy who genuinely enjoyed helping others. With innocent hopes and wishes, he took the letter with him and went to Beijing with his father to appeal for Falun Dafa. In Beijing however, he was arrested by the Langfang police, and detained for one month. At that time, he was only 16 years old.
On November 27, 2000, Yanlei went again with his mother to Tiananmen Square to demonstrate Falun Dafa. At the Square, he was not afraid of the police's brutal violence, and shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!" After his arrest, Langfang police sentenced Wang Yanlei, who is a minor under 17 years old, up to two years in a labor camp. He is currently locked up in the Wanzhuang Labor Camp (for adults) in Langfang city, enduring torture of spirit and body that should not be suffered at his age. Yanlei's father, Wang Fenghai, was also sentenced to one year in a labor camp because he spoke out the truth about Falun Dafa to the people.
We call on international organizations to pay close attention to Falun Dafa practitioners' bitter experiences in China.
