First-Hand Account of Persecution Suffered by a Practitioner from Chengdu City
(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Li Wenhua, and I have been arrested many times since the Chinese Communist Party began persecuting Falun Gong practitioners in July 1999. When I went to Beijing to appeal with a few practitioners in October 1999, I was arrested and detained for over three months. The police confiscated 3,700 yuan, which was all I had on me, and forced my family to pay over 8,000 yuan for officers from the local Domestic Security Division to go to Beijing to collect me.
I have been held in the Jintang County Detention Center five times, the Xinjin Brainwashing Center twice, and sentenced to the Nanmusi Forced Labor Camp for one year.
Two inmates were assigned to monitor me in the labor camp 24 hours a day. I had to watch programs slandering Dafa, I was forced to stand facing a wall for 18 hours a day, and was not allowed to use the restroom for long periods of time. The inmates monitoring me also slandered Teacher and Dafa, and constantly threatened me.
Officers from the Jintang County Domestic Security Division and Huaikou Town Police Station ransacked my home several times between July 1999 and June 2001. They confiscated many Dafa books, exercise tapes and audio tapes of Teacher's Fa-lectures. I was not given a receipt for the things taken and have not had any of my belongings returned to me.
When I worked at the Xindu Cadre Sanatorium in 2004 and Zhengjian Hospital in Leshan, the police threatened my family and monitored my husband's and relatives' cellphones in an attempt to find my whereabouts. I was later arrested.
Officers from the Dazhou City Domestic Security Division came to my workplace at Chaijing Hospital in Dazhou City on May 19, 2011 to arrest me, but I was not there. They searched my office and confiscated a Dafa book. They also broke into my apartment and confiscated my Dafa books. The head of the hospital was ordered to deduct 3,000 yuan from my wages for April and May, and forced him to revoke my medical license.
