[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Inside Story of the Zhang Hua "Murder Case"
Zhuang Hua is a farmer from Longwang Village of Caidian District in Wuhan City. He owed his uncle, Mr. Bao, owner of a construction company, a large sum of money for a long time and was unwilling to pay back the debt. On May 11, 2002, when Bao was pressing Zhang Hua for his money, they had a dispute and fought with each other. In order to get rid of the debt, Zhang Hua killed his uncle. After the Public Security Bureau arrested him, his parents tried every possible avenue in order not to have their only son sentenced to death. At the time, policemen who were handling the case said, "The only solution is to claim that your son is a Falun Gong practitioner. Then we can deal with it leniently." Later on, Zhang Hua's parents asked a relative living in Wuhan City, "Is that true that the case can be handled leniently if we claim that Zhang Hua practices Falun Gong?" This relative of theirs has a conscience and told them, "Don't be taken in by the police!" Thus, the scheme to shift the blame of a normal criminal murder case to Falun Gong failed. Those policemen lied to the public, saying that they had found Falun Gong books and that Zhang Hua "meditated" and "cited scriptures" in the detention center, so on and so forth.
[Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Quan Peijun and His Family Are Subjected to Persecution
Falun Dafa practitioner Quan Peijun is an employee from the Transportation Department of Changcheng Aluminum Company of China. Two years ago, he was turned in for distributing truth-clarifying materials and explaining the truth of Falun Gong. The "610 Office" at Shangjie District of Zhengzhou City sentenced him to one year in the Baimiao Forced Labor Camp, where he was subjected to all kinds of torture [the "610 Office" is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems]. However, brutality could not shake his firm belief in Dafa. After the completion of his sentence, he was transferred to the "General Law Knowledge School" located in a western suburb of Zhengzhou City. It was actually named the Wanqing Mountain Villa Brainwashing Center. When the Wanqing Mountain Villa was dismissed, Li Guojun, Party Secretary of the Transportation Department Changcheng Aluminum Company of China, refused to accept Quan Peijun back as an employee of the company. Consequently, Quan Peijun was sent back to the Baimiao Forced Labor Camp again. Since he hasn't been home for three years, his three-year-old daughter hasn't met him yet. His wife has always been in poor health and has become incapacitated.

[Beijing City] The "610 Office" in Fangshan District Persecutes Falun Dafa Practitioners by Using Former Practitioners Who Were Brainwashed Under Pressure
Fangshan District is one of the districts in Beijing that seriously persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners. Since December of 2000, the "610 Office," together with the local government and the Public Security Bureau, forcibly arrested over 800 Falun Dafa practitioners and sent them to brainwashing classes. Practitioners are subject to threats, pressure, deceit and all kinds of physical punishment. Those who were brainwashed under high pressure were forced to aid the evil in persecuting other practitioners. They were instructed to search practitioners' homes, harass practitioners by constantly phoning them, carry out surveillance and report to the "610 Office" on the status of practitioners' progress in being brainwashed. As a result of the intensified persecution, some practitioners who woke up again and resumed cultivating in Dafa, and some who were released from forced labor camps were once again arrested.
Below are three former practitioners who "enlightened" along an evil path and are helping with brainwashing other practitioners:
Sun Baoyan, 86-10-69368810
