Falun Gong Couple Arrested in Hebei Province, Their Teenage Son Interrogated and Tortured

March 11, 2005 |  

Fan Wenzi is the Chairman of the Donglu Township National People's Congress in Qingyuan County, Baoding City, Hebei Province. At 9 p.m. on September 18, 2004, he brought others with him to arrest Dafa practitioner Zhang Xiaoli from her home in Nanwang Village. When they failed to coerce her husband, Hu Xiaole, into paying them one hundred thousand yuan, they sentenced Zhang Xiaoli to three years in a labor camp. She was sent to the Balizhuang Labor Camp in Baoding City.

At 10 p.m. on December 1, 2004, Fan Wenzi and others went to arrest Hu Xiaole. When they found that he was not home, they found his eldest son, 16-year-old Hu Shan, and took him straight out of bed and to the village government building. Fan then cruelly tortured and interrogated an adolescent, trying to get information. Hu Shan was beaten and had many injuries on his head; his face and body were also bruised.

Around 4:00 in the afternoon on December 27, 2004, Fan Wenzi went again to arrest Zhang Xiaoli's husband, Hu Xiaole. Subsequently, without any legal proceedings, Hu Xiaole was sentenced to one and a half years in a labor camp.

Zhang Xiaoli's immediate family consists of four people. She and her husband are both currently being persecuted in the Balizhuang Labor Camp in Baoding City. The eldest son, Hu Shan, though only 16, is still being detained in the county detention center (as of January 1, 2005). At home, her 12-year-old son, Hu Ze, has been left alone with no one to care for him.

It is reported that because Zhang Xiaoli has been on a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention, she is being tortured with confinement in a solitary compartment.
