Practitioners from Handan City Persecuted for Clarifying the Facts about Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) On February 4, 2012, Ms. Zhang Dongqing and Ms. Liu Xiumin from Handan City, Hebei Province, along with Ms. Li Mingyue and two other practitioners, were reported to the police for clarifying the facts about Falun Gong to people in She County. They were arrested by officers from the Liaochengxi Police Station in She County, and then illegally detained and subjected to further persecution in the Handan No. 1 Detention Center.
The five practitioners drove to She County and were reported to the police for speaking to people about Falun Gong and the persecution. Officers from the Liaochengxi Police Station insisted that Ms. Zhang, the driver, get out of the car in order to arrest her. She asked, “Why are you doing this? What law did we break?” The officers couldn't produce any evidence. They used the excuse of seeing a poster advertising the Shen Yun Performing Arts DVD in the car. They pulled Ms. Zhang out of the car and put handcuffs on her. Ms. Zhang yelled, “Falun Gong is good! Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” The officers panicked and quickly shoved her into the police car. They also forced the other practitioners into the police vehicle.
In the police car, the practitioners told these officers, who had been deceived by the lies of the Chinese Communist Party(CCP), the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution. The practitioners also told them that persecuting Falun Gong would come to no good in the end.
Upon arrival at the Liaochengxi Police Station, the officers, including Niu Zhibin, dragged Ms. Zhang out of the car, injuring one of her fingers and causing it to bleed. They also pushed Ms. Li, an elderly practitioner, to the ground.
The officers roughly searched the practitioners and removed their shoes. They stole all of the practitioners' personal possessions, including over 1,000 yuan in cash, and seized their car. Even though they had originally said they would return the car after registering it, they did not return it.
The Liaochengxi Police Station in She County colluded with chief Hu Huaichao and other officers from the Domestic Security Division to drag two of the practitioners to the hospital, forcing them to undergo physical examinations. They then took the practitioners to the Handan No. 1 Detention Center to persecute them further.
Mrs. Liu has an 80-year-old mother and young children to take care of. Their lives became very difficult after the police arrested Mrs. Liu. Officials also harassed the family. Officers from She County conspired with Handan No. 1 Detention Center and the Luochengtou Police Station to ransack Mrs. Liu's home. The officers acted like hooligans and scared Mrs. Liu's young children and elderly mother.
