Practitioners Illegally Arrested in Junan County and Sent to Labor Camps
(Clearwisdom.net) Nineteen practitioners who were arrested in Junan County of Shandong Province on the evening of November 26, 2005, have recently been illegally sent to labor camps. They include Ms. Sun Maoqin, Ms. Zhao Xiaowei, Ms. Yang Guangzhen, Ms. Zhang Yaqin (about 47 or 48 years old), Ms. Yang Jihua (about 40 years old), Ms. Sun Shihua (about 60 years old), and Mr. He Shichun (about 40 years old). After being brutally beaten on that night, Han Guangmei is currently still hospitalized and unable to move.
On November 26, 2005, shortly before 8 p.m. approximately 20 policemen went to an experience-sharing conference site, arrested 19 Dafa practitioners, and detained them at four police stations. Among the policemen involved were Ma Zongtao from the610 Office and Chen Xin.
Ms. Sun Maoqin, a practitioner from Lanshan District of Linyi City, was detained in Chengbei Police Station of Junan County. On the second day of her detainment, she was sent to the Junan County Detention Center. Ms. Sun refused to provide her name and opposed the persecution. She was then handcuffed to an iron fence together with Ms. Zhao Xiaowei and two other female practitioners. After 7 or 8 days, they were sent to the Linyi City Brainwashing Center for further persecution.
Six of the arrested practitioners were sent to the brainwashing center. The brainwashing center brought in collaborators from other areas to take turns brainwashing them. Ms. Sun remained unmoved, and the Linyi City "610 Office" illegally sent her to a labor camp at the Wangcun Women's Labor Camp.
Ms. Yang Guangzhen, a practitioner from Junan County, was illegally sent to the labor camp and had her home ransacked.
Han Guangmei was also brutally beaten that night. Vicious thugs Ma Zongtao and Chen Xin brutally tortured Han for the whole night. It was so severe that Han lost consciousness several times. In the few days before being sent to the hospital for emergency care, Han lost consciousness three or four times. It was reported that Han is still in a hospital bed and unable to move. In the past several years, Chen Xin has brutally persecuted Dafa practitioners and ransacked their homes many times.
For several years now the Linyi City "610 Office" and its brainwashing center have persecuted Dafa practitioners. In a small county such as Mengyin, over 100 practitioners were illegally sentenced to jail or sent to labor camps. In the Linyi City metropolitan area, approximately 10 practitioners were sentenced to a labor camp during the summer of 2000. Collaborators have also taken to harassing practitioners. Practitioners on hunger strike were strapped to a bed and force-fed with highly concentrated salt water and tortured. All of the practitioners sent to the brainwashing center were fined heavily. In some cases the amounts of the fines were up to 3,000 to 5,000 yuan.
Seven other practitioners sent to the brainwashing center were forced to pay the fines in order to be released. One of those practitioners, Sun Maoqin, is a resident of Qianshidadui Village in Lanshan District. The Linyi City "610 Office" and brainwashing center officials attempted several times to extort money from Qianshidadui Village or Sun's family, but they failed. They then illegally sent Ms. Sun to a labor camp. In order to oppose this illegal detention, she has been on hunger strike most of the time.
We hope that kind people inside and outside of China will pay attention to the safety of Sun Maoqin and the other practitioners who have been illegally sent to labor camps. We hope that they will receive help and be rescued.
