The Persecution of Practitioner Ms. Cui Yanling of Helong City, Jilin Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Bajiazi is a small town in Helong City in Jilin Province. The persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in this place has consistently been very cruel. At present, there are still eight practitioners who are detained in prisons, forced labor camps and detention centers. In 2011, the local 610 Office and the Legal Committee issued an online warrant for the arrest of practitioners, including Ms. Cui Yanling.
Ms. Cui was the head of the accounting department in the Asbestos Cement Manufacturing Company. Before she practiced Falun Gong in 1998, she had many physical ailments including an inflamed heart and severe cervical spondylosis (degradation of the cervical spine), which directly affected her work and life. After Ms. Cui began to practice Falun Dafa, all her illnesses disappeared. Her outlook on life was completely changed, and her moral standard improved as well.
In July 1999, the Chinese Communist Party, under the leadership of Jiang Zemin, started to persecute Falun Gong. Ms. Cui went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong in March 2000. She was arrested in front of the Appeals Office by Wang Chunli and Zhao Zhekui from the Bajiazi Public Security Bureau, and was held in a detention center in Helong City for 15 days. The police extorted 5,000 yuan from her family and didn't give them a receipt.
In 2001, Wang Jiahui and Duan Aijun went to Ms. Cui's workplace and arrested her for providing other practitioners with copies of Master Li's lectures. They detained her in a local detention center for 15 days. Then, Liu Xueyan and Duan Aijun, led by the deputy police chief Jin Shengguan, ransacked her house.
More than 40 practitioners were arrested in the area in May 2006. On May 11, police from the Helong Public Security Bureau went to Ms. Cui's home to arrest her. She was not there at that time, and they stole her computer.
In 2006, police from the National Security Bureau of Helong went to harass Ms. Cui's 16-year-old daughter in Yanji City, who was in school. They took her out of the classroom and forced her to take them to her residence in an attempt to arrest Ms. Cui. However, Ms. Cui was not home at that time. The State Security Chief of the Bajiazi Public Security Bureau, Zhu Jicheng, and Hu Shengli went to their house to harass them repeatedly.
In 2007, Wang Jiahui colluded with others in Yanji in an attempt to arrest Ms. Cui. Under the guise of “checking household registration,” they went to Ms. Cui's house twice and harassed her. They also blocked and guarded nearby street crossings.
Eight practitioners are still being held in Bajiazi. Liu Jun and Zhong Weijun were sentenced to four and a half years in prison. Pang Fengxian was sentenced to three and a half years. Li Longchun and Wang Weiping are still being detained in Helong Detention Center. Liu Yubo, Li Yinghua and Wang Yanchun were sent to a forced labor camp. In 2006, because Wang Yanchun refused to be “transformed” in the Yadong Reservoir Brainwashing Center, she was transferred to the Changchun Brainwashing Center. She again refused to be “transformed” there as well. Soon after, she was released, Ms. Cui Yanling was again taken away from home by Wang Jiahui from the Bajiazi State Security Bureau.
On November 12, 2010, at 2:00 p.m., personnel from the Bajiazi Public Security Bureau (including Zhao Zhekui, Wang, Jiahui, Liu Xueyan, and Hao) along with the community director, Di Xiumei, intruded into practitioner Ms. Wu Jiying's house without showing any identification, and confiscated all of her Dafa-related books and materials. The purpose of the raid was to arrest more practitioners to be sent to the Yanji Brainwashing Center. Ms. Wu was forced to leave home and become homeless in order to avoid further persecution. At present, other practitioners in the area are still being harassed in their homes by Public Security Bureau personnel.
