11. [Qingdao, Shandong Province] Zhao Xian'ai Sent to Labor Camp Twice
It was just learned that Mr. Zhao Xian'ai from Hongdao, Qingdao City was released from the Qingdao Labor Camp. This is the second time he was released from the labor camp.
After Zhao Xian'ai was released from the labor camp the first time at the beginning of 2003, he was arrested again within a week by the local police. The excuse they gave was that Zhao had provided truth clarification material to other people. Zhao was confused because he had just returned home for a short time. The police gave him no chance to explain or defend himself and sentenced him to two years in the labor camp immediately.
When Zhao got to the labor camp, he learned that the local police hated him because he used to be the local assistant for Falun Gong exercises. So, they made up excuses to persecute him. Zhao told this to the police in the labor camp and requested an appeal. Some kind-hearted police asked somebody to write an appeal for him because he couldn't write. Meanwhile, the practitioner who was used by the local police to report on Zhao realized her mistake and clarified the facts. She said that the local police took advantage of her fear and lured her to falsely accuse Zhao. The facts are pretty clear. However, the appeal was turned down and the judiciary bureau kept the original sentence.
