Editors' Note: Each time we publish news of this nature, we do so with heavy hearts. These people started off as public servants, but under the intense pressure applied by the Jiang regime, they were pushed into persecuting Dafa disciples. In the process of destroying the lives of kind, law-abiding citizens, they are sealing their own fates and will inevitably face karmic retribution as punishment. For these officials, it's still not too late, and we sincerely hope that they will change their ways and ultimately make up for the damage they have done.
Zhang Chuanyu, the Jiu Village Party Branch Secretary in Shijiu Town, Rizhao City of Shandong Province, often persecuted and harassed Dafa practitioners in his village and severely interfered with Dafa practitioners' daily lives. He often scolded other village secretaries for not maintaining an iron fist to control Dafa practitioners. In 2001, he suffered an infection in his thighbone, and in December 2002 he contracted serious hepatitis and has been bedridden ever since. He followed the Jiang regime's wicked orders and persecuted the good people, but in the end he hurt himself.
Xie Baoyu, head of the National Security Division at Zhuozhou City Police Department in Baoding area, Hebei Province is one of those chiefly responsible for persecuting Dafa practitioners in the city. In late December of 2002, after drinking heavily, Xie was organizing the criminal record material relating to the persecution of Falun Gong. He mailed some documents about the persecution to an address in the U.S. The package was intercepted and Xie was tracked down as the sender, but he couldn't recall doing it at all. It was heard that he passed out from shock and fear. Now Xie has been brought to Baoding for detention and investigation, and he might be sent to jail for "divulging national secrets."
