Villagers Express Righteous Indignation as Wendeng City 610 Office Arrests 70-year-old Man
(Clearwisdom.Net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Du Kesong, around 70 years old, is from Shihuiyao Village, Songcun Town, Wendeng City, Shandong Province. He filed an appeal because he had been detained and tortured. The Wendeng City 610 Office retaliated. On September 27, 2005, they arrested him again. The local villagers tried to stop the police from arresting him, but they failed.
On May 24, 2005, the Wendeng City 610 Office arrested Mr. Du for no reason and sentenced him to 3 years in a forced labor camp.
In the Wendeng City Detention Center, Mr. Du was cuffed to a chair and tortured. Both his body and mind suffered severe damage and his high blood pressure recurred. Ill-intentioned policemen tried to send him to the Wangcun Labor Camp but the labor camp refused to take him. After he came back, they detained Mr. Du for another 40 days in the Wendeng City Detention Center.
Mr. Du filed an appeal to the Supreme Procuratorate. During the first ten days of September 2005, the Supreme Procuratorate replied and transferred Mr. Du's appeal documents to the Police Bureau. The Police Bureau then sent them along to the Shandong Province Police Office and Police Department who asked Mr. Du to solve this issue in his local police department. Not only did the Wendeng City Police 610 Office not solve this issue but they even became aggravated and retaliated. At around 10 p.m. on September 27, 2005, they again forcibly broke into his home to arrest him. At that time, it was only 10 days after Mr. Du's daughter had given birth and it was also harvest time, the busiest season on the farm.
Upon hearing about the arrest, the villagers came out of their homes to stop the police. They were indignant. They held on to Mr. Du and would not let the police take him away. However, the 610 Office eventually did take the elderly Mr. Du Kesong away, in spite of the villagers' attempts to stop them.
