Case Facts and Rationale

1. From April to June 2006, agents from the 610 Office, Political Commissar, Police Station, and National Security Team arrested and illegally detained Falun Dafa practitioners.

These defendants broke into practitioners' homes and arrested more than 30 practitioners. They confiscated practitioners' private property, including computers, printers and cash. Practitioners were either taken to a labor camp or the perpetrators extorted large amounts of money and property. Today, there are still nine Dafa practitioners illegally detained in the Liaoyuan City Detention Center. During the past eight months, Ms. Xiang Lijie and others have protested the persecution through hunger strikes. They suffered inhuman torture. Xiang Lijie was tied to the tiger bench and to a steel-wired bed with her arms and legs stretched. She was also brutally force-fed. Due to the torture Ms. Xiang suffered, she is now incontinent and vomits blood.

Guards of the Liaoyuan City Detention Center, including Pi Fuguo, He Kun, Hou Changzhou, and others, tortured Ms. Xiang Lijie and other practitioners using many torture methods. They tried to illicit false confessions through torture, including force-feeding practitioners who held hunger strikes.

Practitioner Ms. Lu Chunyun, a teacher at the Liaoyuan Health School, had donated all her savings (60,000 yuan) for building crossroads, yet has been illegally imprisoned in a labor camp, cruelly beaten by guards and suffered many different torture methods. On the evening of April 22, 2006, Ms. Lu Chunyun was arrested by Han Dong, the police chief of Longshan Police Station when distributing truth-clarification materials. She was then illegally tied to the iron chair for one day. Police officers Lian Weihua, Jiang Yang, and others asked Ms. Lu Chunyun to reveal the source of the materials. As Ms. Lu refused to reveal the source, they kicked her violently four times. Later Ms. Lu Chunyun was detained in the detention center. The police confiscated 320,000 yuan, which has not been returned. Lu Chunyun went on a hunger strike in the detention center, and was force-fed several times by guards Luo Dongmei and Chief Hong Meidong. She is extremely weak and emaciated. Doctor Zhang at the detention center and guard Luo Dongmei put her in shackles and force-fed her.

Practitioners detained at Liaoyuan City Detention Center are not allowed visits from family and friends. Friends and family members are very concerned and have filed lawsuits, which were not accepted by the court. Guards at the Liaoyuan City Detention Center continue the inhuman persecution.

On December 6, staff from the 610 Office, the Political Commissar, and staff from the Longshan District Court held a secret court hearing at the Liaoyuan City Detention Center. They handed down illegal rulings to nine practitioners: Ms. Xiang Lijie, Mr. Zhao Yan, Mr. Zhang Shunhong (Mr. Zhang Shunlong's younger brother), Ms. Liu Xiangzhuo, Ms. Wang Xiangren, Mr. Luan Aijun, Mr Liu Quanxing, Mr. Liu Duansheng, and Ms. Lvu Chunyun.

Only two direct family members per practitioner were allowed to attend the court proceedings. They were required to bring an ID, but could not bring a cell phone. More than ten family members of practitioners were present during the illegal trial. Nine practitioners walked into the court, one after the other with Ms. Xiang Lijie being the first. She appeared to have been tortured. During her self-defense, she began to read several pages of prepared arguments, but was interrupted rudely. One practitioner immediately pointed out, "Self-defense is the right of everyone!" From the beginning to the end, Ms. Xiang Lijie refused to admit to any of the false accusations against her. The next was practitioner Mr. Zhao Yan, a former employee at the Culture Center of Dongfeng County, Liaoyuan City (he was illegally dismissed because he practices Falun Gong). During the illegal detention, he lost more than 20 kg. (44 lb.) and looked sallow. When he was asked if he admitted to the charges, he replied, "No. I don't admit to any of the charges. It is not illegal to practice Falun Gong!" The court officer was discomfited and ordered, "Write down what he said!" One male practitioner had been severely tortured and needed the support of two people when entering the courtroom.

On the evening of December 15, the nine practitioners who were detained received the following illegal verdicts:


Prison Sentence

Ms. Xiang Lijie

11 years

Mr. Liu Duansheng

9 years

Mr. Liu Quanxing

8 years

Ms. Zhao Yan

7 years

Ms. Liu Xiangzhuo

5 years

Mr. Luan Aijun

4 years

Mr. Zhang Shunhong

4 years

Ms. Lu Chunyun

3 years

Ms. Wang Xiangren

3 years

None of the nine practitioners admitted to any of the charges brought against them and they do not accept the verdict. They have already appealed. The practitioners' family members have not received official notification of the sentences.

2. Practitioner Mr. Zhang Shunlong, 40 years old, was persecuted to death.

Mr. Zhang was a farmer in Band 6, Xincheng, Yanping Village, Liaohe Town, Dongliao County, Liaoyuan City, Jilin Province. Because his younger brother Mr. Zhang Shunhong was illegally detained for practicing Falun Gong, Zhang Shunlong and his wife Ms. Lu Fengling, his elder brother Mr. Zhang Shunming, fellow practitioner Mr. Pang Baojun, his sister-in-law (not a practitioner), neighbor Du (surname, not a practitioner) went to the Dongji branch police station in Liaoyuan City, to demand the release of Zhang Shunhong. Liaoyuan City National Security Team agents, Dongliao County Commissar Team agents, and police from Liaoheyuan Police Station arrested them on their way to the police station. The police claimed that they were going to lay siege at the city government, and forced them into a police car. However, Mr. Zhang Shunlong and Mr. Pang Baojun refused to cooperate and said, "We will not go with you. We came to see our younger brother. If you have any questions, we can talk about it during village committee hearings."

Zhang Chuanhong, police chief of Liaoheyuan Police Station, grabbed Mr. Zhang Shunlong by the hair, and together with several policemen beat him inhumanly. They slammed Mr. Zhang's head against the bridge pole. Zhang Shunlong's head and face were bleeding badly. Later, several police forced him into the car. Mr. Zhang Shunlong refused to cooperate and braced his legs outside the car. The police looked around for stones to break his legs, but didn't find any. They then violently hit Mr. Zhang's legs with the car door. His legs were broken. After they stuffed Mr. Zhang into the car, they pressed his head into the crack between two seats. He could not move and blood and sweat ran down his face. The police also cruelly beat Ms. Lu Fengling, and her nose was broken.

Mr. Zhang Shunlong and other practitioners were taken to Liaoheyuan Police Station. Mr. Zhang was detained on the third floor, where he was interrogated and beaten by several dozen police officers. At about ten o'clock, Mr. Zhang Shunlong fell from the third floor. The police claimed that Mr. Zhang Shunlong jumped from the third floor window. They said that two people tried to pull him back, but failed. We note here that Mr. Zhang Shunlong was handcuffed, his legs were broken and over ten people were watching him. Moreover, the windows on the third floor are very narrow. How could he have jumped out of the window? It is obvious that he was pushed out of the window. The police wanted to escape responsibility by creating a false scenario after torturing him inhumanly. A person died in their custody, therefore they cannot escape responsibility.

Mr. Zhang Shunlong refused to cooperate with the illegal interrogation. The authorities did not keep notes from the interrogation.

Police said they took Mr. Zhang Shunlong to Liaoyuan No. 2 Hospital for "humanitarian reasons," where police asked Mr. Zhang Shunlong's wife Ms. Lu Fengling for money. When she replied that she had no money, the police demanded that she sell their motorcycle, but she refused. In the hospital, Mr. Zhang Shunlong was provided with only oxygen and blood and given no other treatment.

Ms. Lu Fengling could not talk to her husband, Mr. Zhang Shunlong, before he passed away. She only saw him breathe very heavily and touch his head. He seemed in terrible pain. An autopsy was performed while his body was still warm. In the early morning of December 28, the police cremated him without family members' permission. They refused to give an explanation. They also threatened Ms. Lu Fengling, "This cannot be revealed! If you do so, you and your family members will be taken to a labor camp."

Mr. Zhang left behind his elderly mother, his wife Ms. Lu Fengling and two young children. They have a difficult life. A piece of land of about 3-5 mu (0.5 - 0.8 acres) could not be tended and had to be leased out.

Mr. Zhang Shunlong's arrest, violent beating and death was exposed that same day on the Internet. Lieoheyuan General Police Zhang Chuanhong and other officers have received five calls from overseas Dafa practitioners in five countries within one day. Practitioners Mr. Zhang Shunming and Mr. Pang Baojun were released. Though Zhang Chuanhong brought many people to Mr. Zhang Shunlong's family to apologize, they have not given a reasonable explanation or provided any compensation.

Therefore, given the aforementioned facts, staff from the 610 Office, Commissar, police, Procuratorate, the court, and those who directly or indirectly participated, have violated the U.N. Human Rights Convention, International Law, the Chinese Constitution, Criminal Law and other laws and regulations. They committed crimes, including illegally depriving Chinese citizens of their personal freedoms, religious freedoms, freedoms of speech and rights to private property.

The crimes were committed by officials of the State and under the control of the Chinese Communist Party. They violated existing law instead of executing the law!

In China, a country under the control of the Chinese Communist Party, no ordinary citizen will find redress before the law. Our only recourse is to seek redress through the international community.

We hereby ask overseas practitioners to file a lawsuit on behalf of the above-mentioned Chinese citizens. We hope for a fair hearing and a verdict as soon as possible.

We ask for the release all Falun Gong practitioners who are illegally detained in Mainland China. We request that the criminals and murderers who persecute practitioners be brought to justice.

We ask that this letter be submitted to the U.N. Human Rights Commission, the World Court, and the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong.

Plaintiff: Dafa practitioners and relatives who are persecuted in Mainland China.
