(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Feng Xisong, a Falun Gong practitioner from Rushan City, Shandong Province, was recently arrested by the local police.
At around 11a.m. on July 26, 2011, when Ms. Feng’s son was resting at home after his night shift job, he got a phone call. Someone told him, “You and your mother should go to the door of the family residence building. The police department has something to talk to your mother about.” Since Ms. Feng had been persecuted several times in the past, her son and husband were afraid of the evil Chinese Communist Party. They urged her to go to the door [of the family residence building of Weihai Weiqiao Textiles Company]. Ms. Feng said, “I did not do anything wrong. I did not commit any crime. I am not going.” Due to intense fear, her son and husband cursed Ms. Feng and forced her to go to the door. When they got there, Liu Jie and Liu Jinhu arrested Ms. Feng and took her to the Zhangcun Police Station. Later on the police found the security guard at her son’s workplace and ransacked their home. They confiscated personal belongings, including Falun Dafa books and MP3 players.
On July 24, because Ms. Feng's son and daughter-in-law were missing their nine-month-old daughter, Ms. Feng took her granddaughter to stay at her son’s place for several days. On the way Ms. Feng was giving out Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials and was reported by the janitor to the police.
At the Zhangcun Police Station, Liu Jie and Liu Jinhu kept threatening Ms. Feng, called her son, and ended up extorting one thousand dollars from him. They told him that if he did not pay, they would sentence her to forced labor. Later on Ms. Feng Xisong felt ill. At around 4 p.m., they asked Ms. her son to take her home.
Ms. Feng Xisong started to practice Falun Dafa in January 1999. Before cultivating, she suffered from many different kinds of diseases. Her husband did all the household chores. Very often she got mad at him, and she never thought of other people’s feeling. The very first day she joined the exercises, she felt that her body and mind were very light, and she washed a load of clothes. Her husband was surprised when he got home and said, “Falun Gong is magical.” Then she realized that she had undergone great physical changes. Gradually, after studying the Fa and cultivating herself, she became better physically and more tolerant and openminded. She also learned to think of others. She was really thankful for Master Li, who gave her all of the greatness of cultivating Falun Dafa.
In July 1999, Jiang Zemin and the Chinese Communist Party started to defame and persecute Falun Gong, a practice that has brought people physical and spiritual wellbeing. Ms. Feng was often harassed by her employer and the police department after July 1999. In the spring of 2001, she was held a detention center for one month for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong.
In 2007, she went to different organizations, including public security bureaus, the Procuratorate, and people’s courts, to ask for her release. On April 11, 2007, at around 6 a.m., she was arrested in a public washroom by the domestic security division under the direction of Wang Jinlu. She struggled and was pushed into a vehicle. Although her leg was not even inside the car, they forced the door closed. At the detention center, Ms. Feng could hardly walk. After detaining her for several days, despite the fact that her husband suffered from high blood-pressure, heart problems, and diabetes and needed his wife to care for him, they sentenced her to two years of forced labor.
In Wangcun Women’s Forced Labor Camp in Shandong Province, Ms. Feng Xisong was tortured physically and mentally. Before cultivating, she suffered from severe headaches. In the labor camp, the first kind thing they do is deprive you of any sleep. Day or night, they deprive you of any sleep. It is very common for the guards and other inmates to curse you and beat you. Several practitioners could not withstand it. Then they try to brainwash you. When you are not clear-minded, they will force evil things upon you, which is as good as brainwashing you. After being tortured for several days (in the camp no one is allowed to study the Fa or do the exercises), Ms. Feng’s headaches recurred. She could not sleep or eat. She could not hold on anymore physically. She just wanted to throw up. After being persecuted for some time, she was transferred to the labor team. Every day from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., she was forced to work. When she could not finish the forced labor quota, she was forced to do extra work even later.
In the forced labor camp, besides the great suffering physically, she missed her ill husband. In the autumn of 2007, her husband was hospitalized because of a heart attack. In September 2007, when her son was married, she was not allowed to attend his wedding.
Weihai Weiqiao Textiles Company was also involved in persecuting her. After Ms. Feng Xisong was arrested, his employer told her son that they would deduct his bonus and cancel his contract. The general manager for his company is Zhang Yanhong.
