(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Wang Xiaojun is a physics lab teacher at the Hebei Energy Technology Institute. He works diligently, and everyone says he is a good teacher.
Mr. Wang has been persecuted since 1999. The institute demoted him from teacher to maintenance worker. His salary was also reduced to the lowest level. He was watched as he worked. The institute did not allowed him to take holidays or vacation days. Sometimes Mr. Wang was not allowed to go home. One night, officers from the Lubei Police Department in Tangshan broke into his home and took him away. Mr. Wang was detained for one day and one night for no reason.
On June 6, 2001, officers from the Lubei Police Department took him from his office. He was detained in the Xishandao Police Station, and his home was ransacked. The police hit and kicked him. They slapped him in the face with shoes, and he lost hearing in one of his ears. He can no longer hear out of that ear. Later on, he was held in Hehuakeng Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan for one year.
On June 8, 2011, Mr. Wang's wife was arrested. She was detained in the Lubei District Brainwashing Center for more than two months. As a result of persecution, her feet festered and she had difficulty walking. She was fired after being released. She had to do day labor to support her daughter in school and to make a living.
Mr. Wang was not released from Hehuakeng Forced Labor Camp until he had big lumps covering his body and face in December 2001. After he returned home, the institute gave him an allowance of only 300 yuan per month. Currently, his salary is just 1200 yuan per month.
On June 10, 2011, Mr. Wang was seized by officers from the Tangshan Domestic Security Division and personnel from the Kailuan Mine Administration Bureau and the Hebei Energy Technology Institute while he was in his office. His home was ransacked. The police took away Falun Dafa books, Fa-lecture DVDs, Falun Gong materials, a computer, printer, stapler, audio recorder, etc. They also took about 14,000 yuan in cash. Mr. Wang was sent to a forced labor camp. It was said recently that, in Kaiping Forced Labor Camp, Falun Gong practitioners are held in a big room and not allowed out unless they give up their belief. Mr. Wang was not allowed to sleep on the night of September 6, 2011. The camp ordered him to write a guarantee statement to not practice Falun Gong and forced him to smoke cigarettes. Their tactics were very sordid and cruel.
