Facts of the Persecution
Henan Province Nanzhao County Police Station policeman Miao Xiaofeng has participated in persecuting many Dafa practitioners. The following are some of what he has done.
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Jin Ying was arrested and suffered from punishment in March and April 2002 due to clarifying the truth to people. She was tortured so badly that she remained unconscious for three days and nights. At that time, the policemen (including Miao Xiaofeng) were afraid that she would die, so they sent her to the hospital to receive emergency treatment.
A female Falun Gong practitioner by the surname of Li was arrested at home on May 7, 2002, and her home was ransacked. Li's 1,700 Yuan 1 in cash and her bank deposit books were all taken away. On May 9, Li was tortured at Nanzhao Police Bureau for one day. She suffered two black eyes from the beating. She couldn't walk normally after the abuse. Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Yuan Wenbao was cruelly tortured by policemen. He faced the punishment of being handcuffed in an excruciating position. He couldn't walk normally for a long time afterwards. Later on, he was sent to Xinjiang Province to serve his sentence. His whole family was impacted and persecuted as well.
Daqing City Dafa practitioner Ms. Wen Xiuying went to Beijing to appeal to the government. After she got home, she was sent to the brainwashing center for one week, where she was illegally fined 500 yuan. The authorities also stopped paying her pension since year 2000. The total amount was over 10,000 yuan. On October 19, 1999, Daqing City Dafa practitioner Ms. Chen Shufen went to Beijing to appeal to the government. She was abducted to Honggang Police Station by the police, where she was detained for 48 hours. After she got home, she was under long-term surveillance. On August 20, 2000, she was abducted and sent to Honggang Police Station, where she was interrogated. After that, she was sent to Daqing Detention Center for over 20 days. Then she was sentenced to 2 years in forced labor camp and sent to Harbin City Brainwashing Center. Because she was persecuted both mentally and physically, she suffered from serious heart disease, high blood pressure, and the Brainwashing Center refused to accept her. Then she was sent to Honggang Detention Center for detention for over 10 days.
In Yingko City of Liaoning Province, there is a lady in her 60s by the name of Li Cuihong, who is a practitioner. On July 28, 2002, when she was distributing truth-clarification materials, she was taken to the Haibin Police Station. The policemen beat her up, and then illegally detained her for 30 days. Her family was blackmailed for 2500 Yuan at first. Then the police thought that they didn't get enough money, so they confiscated construction material from her home worth over 20,000 Yuan. In July, policemen abducted her to Harbin Police Station without any reason. They didn't release her until when it was dark.
I am Wang Yingxia, a Dafa practitioner of Jiamusi City. On April 26, 2002, I was arrested and received a 3-year sentence in forced labor camp. During my detention in the forced labor camp, I have suffered from beating, kicking, being handcuffed in an excruciating position, sitting on a tiny stool from 6 o'clock in the morning till 11 at night, and attending brainwashing sessions. My wife had to divorce me because she couldn't stand the pressure.
Falun Dafa made my hunchback become straight.
I am from Wuji County, Hebei Province. Since the 80's, I started having aches all over my body. Eventually, I became a hunchbacked old man. I couldn't lie down flat when I was sleeping at night, and I completely lost my ability to work for a living. I gradually became a handicapped person. I had been going to see doctors and try various medicines for almost 20 years. In 1997, I became a Falun Gong practitioner. Since then, my health condition became better and better day-by-day. Unnoticed, my hunchback became straight. Now, I can do any kind of work. The whole village knows that I was healed by practicing Falun Gong.
A mute woman can now speak.
In 2000, a mute woman came to a detention center where Dafa practitioners were being held. She was in her 30's. After a few days, she started practicing Falun Gong, and she kept studying the Fa with others each day. One day, she gave me the thumbs up to express that Falun Dafa was good. Two days before I left, she miraculously was able to speak. Her fellow practitioners were all very excited, they wanted to hear her voice when she was reading the Falun Dafa books. Even though she couldn't pronounce the words very well, her voice was very loud and strong.
