Arrest and Extortion of Four Falun Gong Practitioners from Pingshan County, Hebei Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Li Xiuzhen, Ms. Guo Yanhua, Ms. Wu Wenting and Mr. Wang Jinglin follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and tell people of Falun Gong and the persecution. Pingshan County government office personnel have persecuted them.
1. Persecution of Ms. Li Xiuzhen and Ms. Guo Yanhua
Ms. Li Xiuzhen is 47 years old. Ms. Guo Yanhua is 65 years old. They are from Beijie Village, Pingshan County. The women went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong on July 15, 2000 and were arrested by Beijing police at the Yongdingmen Station. They were eventually transferred to the local government liaison office in Beijing and were handcuffed to a chair overnight.
Feng Qingfang and Xiao Suilong from the Political and Security Office of the county police department sent the two practitioners back to the Pingshan Police Department on July 17, 2000. Ms. Li and Ms. Guo were locked up together with ten or more other practitioners; all of them were tied up to a staircase for 24 hours. The practitioners were forbidden to drink water, eat or use the bathroom and left to be bitten by bugs and mosquitoes. Feng Qingfang poured dirty water on the floor so the practitioners could not even sit on the floor. The same abuser interrogated Ms. Li Xiuzhen, slapped her and attempted to coerce her to slander Falun Gong and Master. Ms. Li refused to do anything they asked. Ms. Li and Ms. Guo were sent to a detention center on July 18 for 10 days. Persecutor Feng Qingfang extorted 2,000 yuan from each of the two families (without giving any receipts) and then released them.
2. Arrest and Extortion of Ms. Wu Wenting
Ms. Wu Wenting, 51 years old, is employed by the Epidemic-Prevention Station in Pingshan County. Feng Qingfang arrested and detained her for two days in January 2002 for distributing information relating to Falun Gong and the persecution. She had 5,000 yuan extorted from her, without a receipt. Pingshan County 610 Office head Wang Genting extorted another 3,000 yuan from her.
3. Mr. Wang Jinglin
Mr. Wang Jinglin is 75 years old and from Shangyu Village, Wangpuo Town. All his illnesses vanished after he began practicing Falun Gong in 1998. He has followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a better person. Feng Qingfang and Yang Zhiguang, chairman of the local People's Congress Standing Committee from the Wangpuo Town Government Office, and Huo Jinhui, Wangpuo Police Station deputy head, ransacked Mr. Wang's home and took away his personal belongings, including Dafa books, a tape recorder, and tapes, at 9:00 a.m. on March 12, 2002. They arrested Mr. Wang and took him to the Wangpuo Police Station. Staion head Huo Sanshuan and Huo Jinhui interrogated Mr. Wang numerous times. They put Mr. Wang under 24-hour surveillance, and tried to coerce him to give up his belief, write a guarantee statement, and read slanderous information. After they persecuted and brainwashed Mr. Wang for 27 days and extorted 2,600 yuan from him (without a receipt) they released him.
