(Clearwisdom.net) Song Xiaobin, secretary of the Political Legal Committee of Dongchengfang Town in Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province, was in charge of logistics, with Chai Yuqiao, director of the General Politics Office (also in charge of persecuting Falun Gong), Officer Xing (first name unknown) and Director Chu Chunshui from the Dongchengfang police station following closely his orders. They planned, organized and carried out the arrest of the five Falun Gong practitioners in Dongchengfang Town on November 24, 2005. Officer He Xuejian raped two of the Falun Gong practitioners, Ms. Liu Jizhi and Ms. Han Yuzhi, while officer Wang Zengjun watched and did nothing to stop this atrocity. Officer He even tried to force the two female practitioners to sleep with him and Wang in their dorm room. He knew that he did not have to worry, as Secretary Song and Director Chai were of shady character and would certainly sanction such cruelty.

The rape was exposed to the international society and protest activities were held worldwide. Falun Gong practitioners in Zhuozhou City did not lose any time spreading the truth about the crime among local residents. Under pressure from the international community and protest by decent people from China, the Hebei Province and Zhuozhou City authorities attempted to disassociate themselves from the incident with lies, which were full of flaws. They wanted to hide their atrocious behavior. To cover their conduct, the authorities arrested He Xuejian on December 11, 2005. He confessed without concealing anything.

Though He was arrested, this incident is not yet over. Secretary Song, Director Chu and Officer Xing were participants in the crime and they will have to pay their dues. Police are now patrolling Xitong Village, Dongchengfang Town, around the clock. They let it be known that whoever could provide information on missing Falun Gong practitioners (who were arrested on November 24 and later released after paying the so-called "fine") would receive 100 thousand yuan if the clues led to an arrest. The Hebei Province 610 Office is covering up the crime. They carry equal responsibility for He's rapes.

Song Xiaobin, Chai Yuqiao, Chu Chunshui and Xing (first name unknown) committed the crime, misusing their authority. These villains planned, organized and carried out the arrest of Falun Gong practitioners because they could collect illegal fees after taking practitioners to a brainwashing center. At the same time they showed "cooperation" with the plans of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners made by the Hebei Province 610 Office and announced during a meeting in early November in Zhuozhou City.

During the interrogation of the five kidnapped Falun Gong practitioners, the police asked, "Do you know other practitioners? Who practices it in other villages?" The police threatened the kidnapped practitioners with torture if they did not provide information of more than ten other practitioners. The police did not keep their desire to arrest more practitioners secret. As a matter of fact, after the police kidnapped the five practitioners in Xitong Village on November 24, 2005, they went back to Xitong Village to kidnap others the next day. The kidnapping of the five practitioners was only the beginning of Song and his cohorts' illegal money gathering scheme.

After He Xuejian's rape crime was reported, the writer used the identity of a staff member from the Party and Government Administration Department in Zhuozhou City, and visited the victims. The writer gathered five receipts issued on November 27, 2005, after the victims were released. On the receipts, one could clearly see the 3,000 yuan fine was for the "training fee in the Nanma Brainwash Base" and the seal on the receipts was the official stamp of Director Chai Yuqiao's General Politics Office.

In fact, Falun Gong practitioners sent to the Nanma Brainwash Center were forced to pay 4,000 yuan, not 3,000 yuan. Also, Song's Political Legal Committee and Chai's General Politics Office did not have the "authority" to take Falun Gong practitioners to the Nanma brainwashing center and collect "training fee," using an official stamp. Only the Zhuozhou City 610 Office has the "legal right" to send practitioners to a brainwashing center. Song and Chai aggressively participated in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, as ordered by the Hebei Province 610 Office during a meeting. They wanted to profit from the misery of others.

Song and Chai claimed that the 3,000 yuan fine was the training fee for Falun Gong practitioners in the Nanma training center (brainwashing for the Falun Gong practitioners in Baoding City, Hebei Province). That is obviously a lie. In the Dongchengfang Town Police Station, Chai interrogated practitioner Qu Wenting, "Does your family have money?" Qu said no and Chai threatened Qu, "Then make sure you have 10,000 yuan to pay the Mancheng Prison (Baoding City Prison)!" The same thing happened to practitioner Wang Helin. Officer Xing asked Wang whether Wang's family had money and Wang said no. Xing said, "Then you are going to the Mancheng Prison for three years, plus you have to pay 10,000 yuan." Officer Wang Zenjun also asked Ms. Han Yuzhi whether her family had money during the interrogation.

The bottom line is, the gangsters wanted to extort money from the practitioners.

The families of the kidnapped practitioners had no choice but to borrow money wherever they could to pay the 3,000 yuan deposit, so the practitioners could go home. The people who collected the money were Secretary Song Xiaobin and Officer Xing. Ms. Han Yuxhi and Wei Baoliang paid the fee on the 25th and went home. Han's husband went to the police to report the rape crime the next day. This clearly shows that Song and his gangs did not release the five Falun Gong practitioners because He Xuejian's rape crime was exposed, but because the practitioners' families paid the "fine."

Three thousand yuan is the total annual income of a farmer's family in Dongchengfang Town! There is much misery behind every one of the 3,000 yuan fines. Under Jiang's policy of "bankrupt them financially," the authorities of Zhuozhou City have frequently persecuted practitioners and extorted outrageous amounts of money during the past several years.

One practitioner in Zhuozhou City had paid a total of 48,000 yuan in fines during the past several years and the lost wages from his/her job amounts to more than 100,000 yuan. Rape victims Ms. Liu Yuzhi and Ms. Han Yuzhi were also fined many times over the past years. The extortion in the form of fines is the outcome of the persecution policies of Jiang's evil regime, "defame their reputation, bankrupt them financially, and destroy them physically."

Because Song, Chai, Chu and Xing's arrest of Falun Gong practitioners and extortion without fear for reprimand set an example and created an environment that allowed He Xuejian's rape crime. After He was arrested, those accomplices of his were also implicated. They tried all within their power to conceal their complicity and their abuse of political authority granted them by the Zhuozhou 610 Office, and the extortion of money. Song authorized Chai to negotiate with practitioners Wang Helin and Qu Wenting by telling them, "I will only send you to the Nanma brainwashing center for a few days and then I will have you bailed out. I will also return part of the 3,000-yuan you paid." They were afraid of the consequences they would have to face if an investigation showed their involvement after the rape crime was exposed.

According to an insider from the City Public Safety Bureau, four out of the five released practitioners are still homeless because they worry the criminals will take revenge. While practitioners Wang Helin and Qu Wenting were homeless, Song and his gangs were looking for them. They pretended that they wanted to return the 3,000 yuan, but in reality they wanted to stop the victims from talking. On the other hand, Song's cronies told the public that the official stamp on the receipts was a mistake. They said that the police collected the fine and they were innocent regarding this matter. The depraved people are always afraid of being exposed.

Concerning the legal aspect of this incident, Song Xiaobin, Chai Yuqiao, officer Xing (first name unknown) and Director Chu Chunshui planned, organized and carried out the illegal arrests of the five Falun Gong practitioners. They are definitely responsible and must face the consequences regarding the rape of the two female practitioners by policeman He Xuejian.
