[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] The Police Arrested Falun Gong Practitioner Ms. Liu Cuian

Ms. Liu Cuian is a retired employee from the Hubei Province Public Security Bureau's Guesthouse. She returned to Caidian, Hanyang, Wuhan City, Hubei Province on April 3, 2005, to sweep her ancestral tombs. The Caidian police, after receiving a tip, arrested her while she was distributing Falun Gong truth-clarification materials in Caidian. The police sent her to the Yangyuan Forced Brainwashing Facility in Wuhan City, Hubei Province.

[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] The "610 Office" Arrested Ms. Liu Jinzhi from Jianghan University and Sent Her to the Jianghan Forced Brainwashing Facility

Ms. Liu Jinzhi is a college student at Jianghan University. On April 1, 2005, Ms. Liu downloaded Falun Gong's truth-clarification materials and passed them to her school's faculty and the "610 Office" at her school. Afterwards, the "610 Office" arrested her and sent her to the Jianghan Forced Brainwashing Facility where she is now being tortured.

[Changsha City, Hunan Province] Ms. He Xianggu, a Nurse from Hunan Province's Women and Children's Health Center Arrested Again

Ms. He Xianggu is a 44-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Changsha City, Hunan Province. She is a nurse at Hunan Province's Women and Children's Health Center. On the afternoon of April 21, 2005, policemen from the Duzheng Street Police Station of the Furong Precinct, Changsha City, Hunan Province arrested her near Dingwangtai, Changsha City. She was just leaving a Falun Gong practitioner's home when the police approached her and searched her. The police found Falun Gong books and therefore arrested her. It was alleged that a neighbor of the Falun Gong practitioner she had just visited reported her to the police.

Since Jiang Zemin started to openly persecute Falun Gong practitioners on July 20, 1999, Ms. He Xianggu has remained determined in her Falun Gong practice. As a result, her employer, the Hunan Province Women and Children Health Center, once sent her to Hunan Province Psychiatric Hospital (now the Hunan Province Neurology Hospital) where she was injected with psychiatric drugs and suffered other forms of torture. Later she was twice sentenced to serve time at the Baimalong Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zhuzhou. Each time she was released after she went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution and detention.

Ms. He has never stopped clarifying the truth to the local people. It was alleged that, after her arrest on April 21, the police colluded with the Hunan Province Women and Children's Health Center to send her to the Baimalong Women's Forced Labor Camp again.

We hope that all practitioners will also try to help gain her release as soon as possible through all means possible.

[Chengdu, Sichuan Province] Mr. Wang Xiaosong Arrested and Detained in the Xinjin Forced Brainwashing Facility

Mr. Wang Xiaosong is a 45-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Chengdu, Sichuan Province. He is employed as a driver for the Dayi County Education Bureau in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. On April 17, 2005, the police arrested Mr. Wang after they were unable to force him to renounce Falun Gong. They sent him to Xinjin Forced Brainwashing Facility for additional torture.

In 1999, Mr. Wang was sentenced to three years in the Deyang Prison because he was determined to continue his Falun Gong practice. He was not released until he completed his term in October 2002. While detained in Deyang Prison, he was locked in a small, solitary room most of the time, where the Intensive Torture Team subjected him to many types of cruel torture.

In July 2002, Qiu Shen from the Second Squadron of the Deyang Prison kept attacking Mr. Wang with an electric baton until he passed out. After he injected a drug to have Mr. Wang lose consciousness, he sneered and said, "If you cannot take it any longer, you may as well kill yourself by knocking your head on the wall. Anyway, you wouldn't be the first Falun Gong practitioner we have forced to commit suicide by using torture. We already have a camera and a camcorder ready to capture the moment."

The police devised a scheme before they made the arrest on April 17. Before the police action, they had Mr. Wang followed and closely supervised. When they failed to find any excuse to persecute Mr. Wang, they tried to make him verbally renounce Falun Gong. When they failed to attain their goal on April 17, they arrested him anyway and sent him directly to the Xinjin Forced Brainwashing Facility to be tortured.

[Qi County, Henan Province] The Qi County Police Torture Two Female Falun Gong Practitioners

On the afternoon of April 13, 2005, the local police arrested Ms. Zhang Hui and another female Falun Gong practitioner. Both are around 35 years of age. They were arrested while walking on the streets of the southern village of Gegang Town, Qi County, Henan Province. The police took them to Qi County Public Security Bureau's detention center and a long-term detention facility, respectively and tortured them.

They both immediately went on hunger strikes to protest the detention and torture. Because they refused to cooperate with the police or tell them their names and addresses, they were both subjected to brutal beatings. Ms. Zhang's parents reside in Qi County. Therefore, she often goes to Qi County to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to the people from her hometown. As a result, the Qi County Police have repeatedly arrested her and detained her at Qi County's detention center and long-term detention facility where she has suffered from many types of torture. Because a local prison policeman knew who she was, policemen from Political and Security Division of the Qi County Public Security Bureau went to her parents' home and tried to extort a large fine in exchange for her release. Ms. Zhang's parents are elderly farmers and were unable to pay this large fine. As a result, the police refused to release her. Moreover, they savagely tortured Ms. Zhang through forced-feeding, which is the number-one cause of death among Falun Gong practitioners. The other female practitioner is now on the verge of death and has been sent to Qi County's Xiguan Hospital for emergency resuscitation. In fact, they are both in mortal danger.
