Falun Dafa Practitioners from Beijing's Fangshan District Arrested

April 01, 2006 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, many Falun Dafa practitioners from Fangshan District, Beijing were arrested and every practitioner whose name was on the "black list" was harassed. Practitioner Zhang Jiguo was arrested on February 25, 2006, and is being detained at Chengguan Police Station.

At about 4 o'clock in the afternoon on February 25, Qiu Lei, a Jiaolefu Village official from Chengguan Town in Fangshan District, along with neighborhood office personnel, came to practitioner Zhang Jiguo's home. Because Zhang was not at home, they left. That night at 8 o'clock, five policemen from Fangshan Police Station intruded into Zhang Jiguo's home, including the chief of police Liu Shuang and officer Chang Qi, who has been continuously persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners. They confiscated more than ten Dafa books. Zhang Jiguo refused to sign any papers. Chang Qi handcuffed Zhang Jiguo, dragged her into a police vehicle and drove away.

The police also arrested a retired teacher from Fangshan Third Middle School and a practitioner from Beidashi. Song Zhenlan from Hongshi village was arrested on February 22. Contacts with two other practitioners have been lost and their situations are unclear.

This time, the village official led the police to practitioners' homes, in most cases asking them whether they still practiced Falun Gong and whether other people visited them. The police searched rooms and threatened practitioners not to have contact with other practitioners. In some cases the managers of the practitioners' workplaces came to their homes and tried to force them to write a guarantee statement, promising to give up their Falun Gong practice.
