Ms. Li Fengzhen of Tangshan City, Hebei Province, Loses Her Memory As a Result of Persecution (Photo)

September 11, 2008 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Li Fengzhen, a Falun Gong practitioner in her 50s, is from Tanghai County, Tangshan City, Hebei Province. She was arrested by Li Fuguo and Wang Min, officers from the Tanghai Public Security Bureau, on June 10, 2008, and taken to Ankang Hospital in Tangshan City on June 25. In just over 50 days, a formerly kind and healthy person was severely affected mentally. She became emaciated, was unable to stand or walk, and couldn't take care of herself.

Ms. Li's older brother, Mr. Li Enying, also a practitioner, was persecuted to death less than a year ago. Ms. Li Fengzhen, his younger sister, has now lost her memory. When she was detained in Tanghai County and Tangshan City, she was severely beaten, resulting in a serious brain damage. She was also injected with an unknown, nerve-damaging drug in Tangshan Ankang Hospital.

Ms. Li Fengzhen lost her memory as a result of the persecution

Over the past nine years, police officers in Tanghai County have continued arresting practitioners. From July 1999 to July 2008, over 100 practitioners have been arrested. More than 30 of them were sent to forced labor camps, and thre were sentenced to jail. Two were persecuted to death. In particular, during June and July 2008, in the name of keeping the Olympic Games "secure," the Tanghai County Public Security Bureau, led by Zhang Shun and Li Fuguo, used despicable means to monitor and track down practitioners secretly, ransacking their home and arresting them in broad daylight. From June 10 to July 31, eleven practitioners (and one of their family members) were arrested, seven practitioners' homes were ransacked, and nine practitioners were detained in the detention center.

Facts regarding the persecution of Ms. Li Fengzhen by Tanghai Public Security Bureau led by Zhang Shun and Li Fuguo:

1. Trespassing, arresting innocent people, and plundering private property

At about 5:00 p.m. on June 10, 2008, seven or eight police officers led by Li Fuguo and Wang Min broke into Ms. Li Fengzhen's house. At that time, she was home alone. The police threw her into the police car. They picked all the locks in the house. They didn't even close the door after they left.

Ms. Li was taken to Tanghai Detention Center the same day. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she suffered from a problem with her cervical vertebra, hemorrhoids, and other ailments. After she took up the practice, she became a different person. She cared less about her personal gain or benefits and always thought of others first. She took care of her sickly grandmother for three years without any complaints. Because her older brother, Mr. Li Enying, was persecuted to death in the labor camp by people like Zhang Shun and Li Fuguo, her family worried about her safety when she was arrested. Her husband couldn't eat or sleep and became very weak and skinny. He went to the police station to demand the release of his wife and also sought the return of the money they had extorted, but he was only met with threats from Li Fuguo and Wang Min.

2. Forcibly injecting unknown drugs resulting in disability and shirking responsibility

On June 25, 2008, Li Fuguo, captain of Tanghai Public Security Bureau, informed Ms. Li's family that he had sent her to Ankang Hospital, a place where the persecution of Falun Gong is implemented by the police system, and ordered her family to pay the hospital fee. They refused, so he went directly to Ms. Li's husband place of employment (the post office), and extorted 4,000 yuan from him.

When Ms. Li was hospitalized in the Ankang Hospital, the Communist Party staff injected her with an unknown drug. In just two months she went from being a normal, healthy person to losing her memory. She became distraught and didn't recognize the people with whom she was once familiar. Whatever she said didn't make any sense, and she became very thin. She couldn't stand, walk, or see clearly. She had pain in her ribs and couldn't take care of herself.

Li Fuguo and Wang Min, deputy directors of the Tanghai Public Security Bureau, lest their crimes be exposed, transferred Ms. Li to Tanghai Hospital. Trying to shirk all responsibility, they forced her family to sign a paper. Zhang Shun, Li Fuguo, and Wang Min have still not done anything to compensate for the damage and injury that they have caused Ms. Li.

In the past, Ms Li was repeatedly arrested and persecuted by Tanghai Public Security Bureau. On October 13, 2001, she was arrested and taken to Tanghai County Detention Center. On January 15, 2002, she was arrested by agents from the Qianxi Public Security Bureau because of a letter she sent to her former classmate about the persecution of Falun Gong. She was illegally detained for five days and bailed out with 5,000 yuan.

Each time Ms. Li was arrested, she was charged with "undermining the national laws" by Tanghai Public Security Bureau, but no specific laws could be cited that she had "undermined" nor to what degree she violated them. The truth of the matter is that Ms. Li is a Falun Gong practitioner who upholds the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
