Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhan Lianrong from Harbin City was abducted on February 27, 2005. Police lied to her husband, saying that she was in serious condition from a traffic accident. They asked him to go to the hospital, and then followed him home and ransacked their house.
Ms. Zhan Lianrong, 56, went to visit her older brother Zhan Lianke at the Xinhua Senior Citizen's Home in Pingfang Town on February 27, 2005. She was abducted soon after leaving the Senior Center, and no family visits were allowed.
Falun Dafa Practitioners Tortured in Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp, Shaanxi Province
All male Falun Dafa practitioners who were sentenced to forced labor in Shaanxi Province were locked up in Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp. The Section Director Feng Xiyao (male) won a Second Level Award and the Section won "Group Third Level Award" for their contribution in the persecution. On May 30, 2001, uniformed guards, Feng Xiyao, Liu Zhiqi (male), Hou Beicheng (male), and Zhang Weilong (male) chose inmates who smoked, and had been criminals since their youth, to be in charge of torturing practitioners. Among them, Luo Xinmin, Ge Zhengui, Wang Junwa, Zhang Youli, and Liu Yingzhe (all male) were the cruelest.
Crimes Committed by Guards Zhang Guimei, Wang Zhufeng, and Zhang Shuhua in Heizuizi Labor Camp
Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Jin Min, 38, lives in Tonghua City. In the summer of 2004, she started serving a three-year term in the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City. This was her third time in a labor camp. Seven of her relatives, including her mother, mother-in-law, aunts, and older sisters were also detained there at the same time. Currently, Ms. Jin is under strict monitoring and not allowed to leave her cell, talk to anyone, receive visitors, or even buy daily necessities.
In November 2004, most practitioners refused to fill out the labor camp questionnaire. Division Head Zhang Guimei (female) and the guards shocked practitioners with electric batons. Before January 1, 2005, almost all of the practitioners declared solemnly that their statements made under duress to stop practicing were null and void. On the morning of New Year's Day, practitioners loudly expressed their New Year's greetings to Master. Guards put steadfast practitioners and newly admitted practitioners in the Fourth Section for brainwashing and torture. Wang Zhufeng (female) and Zhang Shuhua (female) beat and cursed practitioners in the Fourth Section at will. They slapped their faces, kicked them, and shocked them with electric batons. Fifty-two year-old practitioner Ms. Zhu Xiyu was slapped by Wang Zhufeng, and kicked three feet away. She lost two front teeth instantly, and blood gushed from her mouth. Ms. Zhu was released after she had a mental collapse.
Female guard Zhang Guimei often slandered Falun Dafa, shocked practitioners with an electric baton, slapped their faces, kicked them with leather boots, and force-fed them with food or unknown drugs. Practitioner Ms. Wang Yuxiang, 41, is from Siping City. The guards often shocked her with an electric baton during her four-month detention. One side of her body was consequently paralyzed, and she was left emaciated.
Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Su Shunrong Abducted from Chuanying District, Jilin City
Ms. Su Shunrong, who is in her 50s, lives near Deshengmen Muslim Temple located in Chuanynig District, Jilin City, Jilin Province. She went to Beijing to appeal after July 20, 1999, and was detained. At 9:00 p.m. on March 1, 2005, several police officers from Zhihe Substation ransacked her fruit stand in the market, forced her husband to tell where she was, and abducted her while she was attending to her 85-year-old sick mother. Badly shaken by the abduction of Ms. Su, her mother is now in critical condition and no one is taking care of her.
