The Crimes of Dong Zhiming, a Police Officer in the Songshan District of Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region
(Clearwisdom.net) Dong Zhiming, a police officer in the Songshan District of Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, has been actively involved in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. In 2009, he was relocated to the Wusan Police Station in the Songshan District. When he first arrived at the new workplace, he said, “I won't do anything but arrest Falun Gong practitioners.”
Dong started investigating who practiced Falun Gong within his district. He found out that Mr. Zhang Shuchun practiced Falun Gong. So he placed a surveillance camera in Mr. Zhang's home.
He started to arrest practitioners in September. An acquaintance, Mr. Meng, often visited Mr. Zhang's and knew that Mr. Zhang had a truth-clarification materials production site at his home. Dong then arrested Meng first, and Meng gave out many names of Falun Gong practitioners, including Gao Guixia, Zheng Suxia, Su Xiuzhen, Li Fengrong, Qi Hongshu, and others. Dong arrested all of them and released Meng.
Dong Zhiming ransacked the homes of the arrested Falun Gong practitioners. When he was arresting Li Fengrong, Li's daughter-in-law tried to stop him. She was later arrested too and was detained in the police station for a day. Dong also arrested Hao Jingjing's grandmother, who was in her seventies. Dong tortured the old lady in order to find out names of other practitioners. The old lady refused to give away any names of Falun Gong practitioners. So Dong employed further torture against her. Dong later arrested Hao Jingjing, whose baby was just eight months old. Although Ms. Hao needed to breastfeed her baby, Dong arrested Ms. Hao, leaving the baby behind and unattended. Ms. Hao was later sentenced to a three-year prison term. She has been imprisoned ever since.
Since they were arrested by Dong Zhiming, Ms. Gao Guixia and Ms. Zheng Suxia have gone through long interrogations. Sometimes the trials lasted all day and night. Dong tortured them to get more names of Falun Gong practitioners.
An old woman from Wusan Village was also arrested simply because she once visited Mr. Zhang and was seen by the surveillance camera. She did not practice Falun Gong at all. She was sentenced to a three-year prison term.
A couple were arrested. Under brutal torture, the husband told Dong that his sister-in-law once gave him some reading materials about Falun Gong. His sister-in-law was not in Chifeng, but in Jinzhou. Even so, Dong arrested her and brought her from Jinzhong to Chifeng. She clarified the truth to Dong, but Dong did not listen to her at all. He knocked her down and beat her with an electric baton.
In 2010, Dong arrested Li Fengrong and another elderly gentleman and took them to a brainwashing center. The old gentleman could not withstand the brutal torture in the brainwashing center and passed away. Li Fengrong also passed away after undergoing brutal torture in the center. Not only did Dong deny his wrongdoing, but he also lied, saying that the two Falun Gong practitioners died from practicing Falun Gong.
