Details of the Persecution of Five Falun Dafa Practitioners from Dalian City
Mr. Liu Qingtao, 39 years old, residing at Group 6 of Wei 8, Zhongchang Street, Jiefang Road, Jinzhou District, was the assistant for the Falun Dafa practice site in Jinzhou District. After July 20, 1999, the local police kept harassing him. They forced Mr. Liu Qingtao to report to them early each morning, and would not allow him to go home till late at night. In October 1999, Mr. Liu Qingtao was detained at the Dalian City Office stationed in Beijing, and was tortured very severely. He was beaten severely all the way from the 13th floor to the ground floor. This was witnessed by many Dalian fellow practitioners. The police too acknowledged that he "really had endured the beatings." Later he was sent to the Jinzhou Detention Center and has since been jailed there for two and a half years. During this period of time, he was tortured both physically and mentally. He was frequently handcuffed to the heating pipe, which made it extremely difficult for him to stand up or sit down. His family was not allowed to visit him. Every day he was forced to work for long hours on a job in a toxic environment that was harmful to his body. During his detention, he was not allowed to stand for trial, which was a violation of the law. Persistent inquiries by concerned fellow practitioners revealed that he was put in at the Wafangdian Prison for two months. On June 25, 2002, he was sentenced to five years by the Jinzhou Court, and was transferred at the Huazi Prison in Liaoyang. During his detention, Mr. Liu Qingtao suffered from all kinds of tortures, and was forced to work till as late as 10:00 p.m. As a result of this torture, Mr. Liu Qingtao developed symptoms of coronary heart disease. He was sent to the hospital for emergency treatment and his family was not informed. Mr. Liu was not released until October 29, 2004. After five years of persecution, Mr. Liu Qingtao has become very weak physically and is still often being harassed by the local police. On August 2, 2006, he was abducted by the Wanli Police Sub-Station of the Dalian Development District. He is still in jail at the Dalian Development District Detention Center.

After taping their phone calls, the police abducted Ms. Qu Jun, and also her husband, who did not practice Falun Dafa to the local Dalian National Security Team. Ms. Qu Jun was taken upstairs and forced to jump down. Her spine, thighbone and her ankle were broken as a result. She was sent to the Dalian Friendship Hospital, and the doctors there said it was difficult to save her life. Now, she is permanently disabled. On October 9, 2002 at Tieling, she was abducted by the Yinchuan District Public Security Bureau of Tieling and detained at the Tieling City Detention Center. During this period of time, Ms. Qu Jun was force-fed and tortured by being forced to wear handcuffs and shackles. Two months later, she was fined three thousand yuan before her family was allowed to pick her up to go home.

Ms. Qu Jun's father, Qu Tingyue, who is more than 70 years old was sentenced to one year forced labor. Ms. Qu Jun's entire family has been illegally imprisoned many times.

On November 17, 2003, his family was asked to pick him up from the Dalian Labor Camp, after the police had deducted one thousand yuan from the deposit. The officials from Songyuan city, where he came from did not want to take him back as they did not want to go through any paper work procedures.
