[Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] Eight Falun Dafa Practitioners Are Secretly Sentenced to Three to Nine Years in Jail
On the morning of September 28, 2002, eight Falun Dafa practitioners were secretly tried and sentenced to jail in the Chengguan and Qilihe Areas of Lanzhou City. The longest term was 9 years, the shortest 3 years. The next day the official report only mentioned Zhang Xiaodong, ignoring the names and sentences of the other seven. Because no advance notice was made public, none of the local practitioners knew of the trial, and even the family members of those practitioners being sentenced had not been informed.
In the courtroom, these eight practitioners looked very energetic even though they had been illegally detained for nearly two years. They shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is righteous!"

[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] The "610 office" Illegally Holds Brainwashing Classes; Falun Dafa Practitioners Wang Renguo and Han Fei Are Arrested
The "610 Office" in Dalian City is holding brainwashing classes in each county, town, and district to conduct further persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. Wang Huiquan, who is mainly in charge of the persecution in this urban area, announced that whoever doesn't accept brainwashing will be jailed or sent to a forced labor camp.

[Haikou City, Hainan Province] A Material Site Is Damaged; Li Changmao, Wang Li, and Guan Yiming Are Arrested
Hainan Falun Dafa practitioner Li Changmao was arrested in March of this year and then watched by police after his release. On August 13, he was once again followed and then re-arrested. The police then persecuted other practitioners whose phone numbers were probably stored in his cellular phone. In the early morning of August 15, 2002, about 20 policemen from the Xiuying Police Substation in Haikou City surrounded the residence of practitioner Zeng Haibo. The material site he had set up at his living area was damaged when police confiscated his computer, printer, savings account, all the truth-clarifying CDs, etc. They also arrested his girlfriend Wang Li, who is a non-practitioner.
At the time, Zeng Haibo happened to be in Beijing on a business trip. He escaped from the persecution with the help of some kind-hearted people. The police are currently monitoring the company where he used to work and all the cellular phones and phones he had contacted. The police claim that they will not release Wang Li until they have found Zeng Haibo. They are using Wang Li as a hostage. Wang Li, who was not yet recovered from pulmonary tuberculosis and was still taking medication before being kidnapped, has now been illegally detained for over two months.
At the same time the material site was damaged, Falun Dafa practitioner Guan Yiming went to visit Zeng Haibo, his colleague, and was taken away by police, who then put out the rumor to the public that Guan Yiming had been arrested for putting up Falun Dafa posters. His cellular phone is now being monitored. Li Changmao, Guan Yiming, and Wang Li are all being detained at the Xiuying No.1 Detention Center in Haikou City.
