Ms. Sun Fenglan of Yilan County, Heilongjiang Province Repeatedly Persecuted
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Sun Fenglan began practicing Falun Gong in August 1996 in Yilan County, Heilongjiang Province. The following is a report about the four times she was persecuted.
On July 20, 1999, Ms. Sun went to the provincial capital, Harbin City, to request the release of some Falun Dafa practitioners. She was forced to stay in a meeting room of the police department listening to and watching a video program that slandered Falun Gong. This went on for several days before she was allowed to go home.
She was persecuted again when she went to Beijing to appeal to higher authorities for help. Before she had a chance to appeal she was illegally arrested by officials from the local government's liaison office in Beijing. They imprisoned her for five days, took the cash she had on her, and then sent her to the county detention center. She was held in the detention center for 45 days, fined 5,000 yuan, and made to pay 300 additional yuan for food. She was released after she went on a hunger strike for eight days. During her imprisonment, Ms. Sun was forced to stand and/or run for long hours outdoors during the winter time. She spent the New Year in 2000 inside the detention center. The food provided had sand mixed in with it.
On November 20, 2001, Ms. Sun was persecuted for the third time. She was at the home of a fellow practitioner when she was arrested by officers from the Jiedao Police Station. They ransacked her home and kept her in the Second Detention Center. She was on a hunger strike for 15 days before they released her. The perpetrators involved were Zhao Yuling, Liu Yan, Wang Zehui, and Wang Yibin.
On February 25, 2002, the deputy chief of Guanyue Police Station, Wang Yibin, came to Ms. Sun's home and asked her to come to the office to verify some statements. Once she got into the car, they sent her to the Second Detention Center, where she received a sentence stating that she would be sent to the Wanjia Forced Labor Camp for two years. She was sent to the camp the next day, although the sentence and its contents were fabricated.
