Women and Children Arrested in Tongliao, Jilin Province
(Clearwisdom.net) On the morning of May 7, 2008, using heavy surveillance, security guards, police, and 610 Office officials from Tongliao, in Jilin Province, arrested Falun Dafa practitioners Xie Hongtu, Bian Hongxiang, Liu Chunjie, and others, while they were at work. At the same time, they also arrested Xie Hongtu's daughter Xie Lihui (nickname Xiaoyan) and Bian Hongxiang's grandson, 8-year-old Xiao Bao. The five of them, including the children, were illegally detained in the Hexi Detention Center in Tongliao City. The 8-year-old was threatened so badly that whenever he heard a loud voice thereafter, he was so afraid that he started shaking.
That same day, May 7, 2008, authorities arrested Xiao Bao's mother, Bian Lingyun, ransacked their home and took property and money worth over 20,000 yuan, including a cell phone, a watch, shaving equipment, toys (color-changing balls), scissors, a DVD player, clothes, pants, an ID card, electric appliances, a microwave, packaging boxes, two travel bags, and several thousand yuan in cash. Even the money saved by 8-year-old Xiao Bao was taken. The child cried loudly and the whole apartment was a mess.
One month later, still under arrest, Bian Hongxiang displayed symptoms of tuberculosis. He started a hunger strike to resist his persecution and escaped on August 2.
His daughter, Bian Lingyun, was secretly sent to a forced labor camp. The police dared not to let the public know. Even now her family does not know her whereabouts. Bian Lingyun's husband, Song Junfang already pays all the living expenses of his parents (who are 75-years-old). Now that his wife has been arrested, he also has to take care of his father-in-law, as well as his 8-year-old son. It had been several years since he was laid off, and he does not have any income. He has to take care of so many peoples' living expenses. He was forced into a corner and appeals to the righteous people of all walks of life to help to rescue his wife Bian Lingyun.
