Five Falun Gong Practitioners Missing in Shanxi Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Ren Yong from Datong City, Shanxi Province, was recently illegally arrested in Huairen County, Shuozhou City, Shanxi Province. Ms. Cui Yuping and other practitioners were later arrested when they visited the police station to ask about Mr. Ren's arrest. Five Falun Gong practitioners have been missing since then.
When Mr. Ren was telling people the facts about Falun Gong at around 4:30 p.m. on June 24, 2010, he was arrested by officers from the Huairen County Yunxi Police Station, and later sent to the Huairen County Domestic Security Division. Ms. Cui Yuping went to the police station, asking about Mr. Ren's arrest, and she was subsequently arrested.
On June 25, another six Falun Gong practitioners, including Cui Yutao, Tian Fusheng, An Meili, and Shi Suguo, went to the police station asking for an explanation of Ren Yong and Cui Yuping's arrest. They also told the people there the facts about Falun Gong. They were detained by the local police station officers.
Officers Niu Quanxi and Sun Jianjun from the Datong City Domestic Security Division sent Ms. Cui Yuping and four other Falun Gong practitioners to the Datong City Nanguan Police Station on the afternoon of June 26. Another practitioner, Shi Suguo, was sent to the Xinpingwang Police Station, and two other practitioners were sent back home.
At around 2:30 a.m. on June 27, Sun Jianjun, together with four or five other policemen, broke into Ms. Cui Yuping's home without a search warrant. They confiscated two computers, Falun Gong books, and personal belongings. Since one of the two computers belonged to someone else in Cui Yuping's family, they tried to stop the police from taking that computer, but the police threatened to arrest them.
Shi Suguo was transfered from the Huairen Detention Center to the Xinpingwang Police Station in Datong City, Kuangqu District on the afternoon of July 27. Without any search warrant, officers from the Xinpingwang Police Station combed through Shi Suguo's house three times. Eight hundred yuan was found to be missing afterwards.
Cui Yuping, Ren Yong, Tian Fusheng, and two other Falun Gong practitioners are currently still missing.
