610 Office Abducts Retired Professor
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 23, 2009, members of the "610 Office," collaborating with local community workers and policemen, harassed seven Falun Gong practitioners in Luzhou City, Sichuan Province, and searched the homes of five of them. About ten people, including policemen from the Dashanping Police Station and community workers from Ciyuanlu Community, broke into Ms. Tang Xuzhen's home and arrested her.
Ms. Tang, 73, is a retired associate professor from Luzhou Medical Institute. Ten years ago, she was diagnosed with nose and throat cancer, but practicing Falun Gong cured her. While others who were diagnosed with the same cancer died, Professor Tang was leading a healthy life and she felt deep gratitude to Falun Dafa and Master Li.
Because she shared her positive experience with Falun Dafa and told people about the persecution of practitioners, she was arrested and detained seven times by the Luzhou City 610 Office. She was detained for two years and sent to a forced labor camp for three years. When she returned home, she was watched and followed all the time over the past years.
Once she went out with a friend and saw a man filming them with a video camera. She went up to him and tried to talk to him, but he jumped into his car and drove away quickly. Officers from the Dashanping Police Station also took pictures of her secretly and showed the pictures to her husband. Once she came home by taxi and noticed several police cars, policemen, and community workers surrounding her home.
Once again Professor Tang is being "illegally detained" at the Naxi Detention Center. Tang Deyuan, a key member of the local 610 Office, has often searched practitioners' homes and harassed them. He has actively persecuted Falun Gong in the past. Workers from Xinmalu Community, Lianxilu Community, Dongshengqiao Community in Lantian District, Jinianbiao Community, and others also took part in the recent harassment.
