  5. [Heilongjiang Province] Officials at Jiansanjiang Agriculture Administration Bureau Relentlessly Persecutes Practitioners
  6. Since 7/22/99, officials at Jiansanjiang Agriculture Administration Bureau have escalated their persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. For a long time they have illegally detained many practitioners and sent them to farms where they are subjected to abusive labor. The officials have also kidnapped practitioners and sent then to forced labor camps in Jiamusi City and Suihua City, where they are tortured.

    Male practitioner She Huaizhong, formerly a captain in the provincial armed forces, was detained at a local detention center on 7/20/99 and then sent to Suihua Forced Labor Camp for two years. He was finally released in September or October of 2001.

    Two other practitioners, Mr. Tian Baoyu and Mr. Shi Mongchang, were illegally detained on 7/20/99 at Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp for two years and then set free. Because Mr. She, Mr. Tian, and Mr. Shi were determined practitioners, they were thrown into jail at Jiansanjiang Police Station by the Public Security Bureau. Due to the strong protest of their family members and demands of the local practitioners, these three practitioners were released. Later the officials arrested them with the excuse of their violating a bureau ordinance against gathering. The three practitioners would not yield to the persecution of the old evil forces and went on a hunger strike. After 10 days, they were allowed to go home. However, they were later kidnapped and taken to Suihua Forced Labor Camp in late January for forced labor.

  7. [Beijing] Shunyi Policemen Kidnap Practitioners
  8. On 2/02/2002, Shunyi "610 Office" tried to "invite" the two practitioners just released from Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp and Xin-an Forced Labor Camp to the office for a "spring tea gathering." These two practitioners refused the invitation. Next day, Shuyi Public Security's Renhe Police Station sent four policemen to forcibly take the two men and illegally hold them at the police station. When family members asked why the practitioners were being detained, the police hastily made up false excuses for the arbitrary arrests.

    We recommend that all practitioners be firm in our righteous thoughts when eliminating the evil. Let's make the old forces and their plots to persecute Dafa and practitioners vanish into thin air.

    The perpetrators include:

    Mr. Zhang Yuanbin, Xingan County's Administration &Law Secretary General and Mr. Zhong Funeng, Public Security Bureau.

Lawless and wicked people shall receive due retribution from the heavens!
