Store Owner Arrested, Wife Died of Torture
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Qin Laosi from Xiajie Village in Shiliting Town, Shahe City, Hebei Province, was arrested at home on September 15, 2011. Wang Jianjun and other police agents sent him to the Xingtai Brainwashing Center. His three children were left unattended. Their mother died last year as a result of torture in a brainwashing center.
Mr. Qin, a farmer in his 40s, repairs home electronics. After going to Beijing to appeal in January 2000, he was sent to labor camp with a term of one year. Below are the details of the persecution and death of his wife.
Ms. Hao Bianyun
Ms. Qin’s wife Hao Bianyun died last year. On October 27, 2004, more than 10 agents from the Shiliting Township Government went to her home at 2:00 p.m. They covered her mouth, beat her, and dragged her into a police van, along with their 5-year-old daughter. During the two-month detention at the Xingtai Brainwashing Center the police agents injected her with an unknown substance. She developed heart disease, fell in and out of consciousness, and gradually lost the ability to take care of herself. She died on March 25, 2010 after suffering many years of debilitating symptoms from the unknown substance. Mr. Qin then opened a shop in Shiliting Town to repair home electronics to make a living while raising his three children.
Shahe City Domestic Security Division head Wang Jianjun went to Qin’s home in the morning on July 12, attempting to arrest him. After he escaped, Wang took Mr. Qin's teenage son Qin Haozhi as a hostage. His family was forced to pay 2,000 yuan to get the son back.
Several days later Wang and other agents went to Xiajie Village again, but still failed to arrest Qin. They tried to arrest his daughter, but other villagers stopped them.
The agents arrested Mr. Qin on September 15 and took him to the Xingtai Brainwashing Center.
