A Devoted Daughter Protects Her Father But Is Sentenced to Two Years in a Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) On July 25, 2005, the police suddenly broke into the home of Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Liu Guangyou, a villager living in Huanan County, Heilongjiang Province. The police illegally ransacked the home and found Falun Gong books. In order to protect her father, his daughter Ms. Liu Yue claimed that the books were hers. As a result, the police "arrested" Ms. Liu Yue. Although the police knew very well that Ms. Liu did not practice Falun Gong, they illegally arrested her and then tried to extort a large sum of money from her family. When they realized that her family was unable to pay the ransom, they arbitrarily sentenced Ms. Liu to two years in Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp in Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province. The police also abducted her father. Ms. Liu's little brother is now left at home alone without any adult supervision. He has been forced to drop out of school.
Ms. Liu Yue, 21, is a villager in Zhenxing Village, Yuanerdaogou Township, Huanan County. She is a single woman and a farmer. In her spare time, she helps her father Mr. Liu Guangyou with his medical clinic. Her little brother, Liu Mengyang, studied at Huanan No. 3 Elementary School. Ms. Liu does not practice Falun Gong.
On July 25, 2005 while Mr. Liu Guangyou was out, several men suddenly broke into his home. They claimed to be agents from the Pricing Bureau searching for illegal medicines. Without showing any credentials, they began to ransack Mr. Liu's home. It was not until they found Falun Gong books and materials that Ms. Liu realized that they were plainclothes policemen.
The police asked Ms. Liu Yue whom the books belonged to and who practiced Falun Gong in the household. In order to protect her father, Ms. Liu replied, "These are my books. I practice Falun Gong." Captain of the State Security Team Li Jun, Deputy Captain Wang Jinfeng and policemen Chen Yujun and Huang Xiaodong then took Ms. Liu Yue to the Huanan County Detention Center.
In the detention center, Ms. Liu Yue has been missing her family a great deal. In addition, the illegal detention has had a negative effect on her prospective marriage. She has been terribly tormented. Although the Huanan County Public Security Bureau knew perfectly well that Ms. Liu Yue did not practice Falun Gong beforehand, they tried to extort 13,000 yuan from her family in exchange for her freedom. Because her family was unable to pay the ransom, the Public Security Bureau's State Security Team concocted "evidence" against Liu Yue and arbitrarily sentenced her to two years in Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp in Jiamusi City.
On August 22, 2005, the police, led by Li Jun, abducted Ms. Liu's father, Mr. Liu Guangyou, and had him incarcerated in the Huanan County Detention Center. Ms. Liu's younger brother, Liu Mengyang, is only 14 years old. Their mother passed away when the children were little. His father and sister were all that young Mengyang had. Now that his father and sister have been incarcerated, he has no one to look after him. He cannot attend school and lives alone.
