(Minghui.org) Since February, 2012, different levels of harassment against Falun Gong practitioners have been carried out in various towns, villages, and companies of Anping County under the direction of the 610 Office of Hengshui City, Hebei Province. Practitioner Zhang Xiaowei's house was pick-locked and raided, and was robbed of 16,700 yuan in cash. Practitioner Liu Yufeng was kidnapped. Although he has returned home, his new motorcycle was stolen. After that, six more practitioners were arrested.

On February 18, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhang Xiaowei of Niuju Village was robbed. When no one was home, a group of seven policemen from Madian Town Police Station, including Zhao Guangxu, and Madian Town government personnel, including Zhou Jinzhang, broke down the locked door in broad daylight. They entered the house of Mr. Zhang, pick-locked a cupboard lock, and stole 16,700 yuan in cash and Falun Dafa books. When Mr. Zhang found out, he immediately went to the police station and asked for the money and property to be returned. He was turned away without being given a reason.

On the very same day, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Liu Yufeng of Liuzhuang village, Hezhuang Town was kidnapped from his rental house in Huangcheng Town. The house was illegally ransacked. Around 1 p.m. on February 18, seven or eight people from Huangcheng Town Police Station suddenly broke into Mr. Liu's rental house, openly taking away many things. In addition to more than 10 boxes of paper, they stole a gas stove, propane tank, and a raincoat. In the end, they even put a hammer and flashlight into their pockets. These seven or eight young policemen took turns kicking Liu Yufeng. They found and took away the last 300 yuan he had. They forcefully handcuffed Mr. Yufeng and took him to Huangcheng Police Station. They then transferred him to Hezhuang Police Station. Liu was detained overnight and released on February 19. However, his new motorcycle, valued at 10,000 yuan, had been stolen.

A little past 7 p.m. on February 23, 2012, Ma Chuang, Jia Xu and ten other people of Liangwa Town government of Anping county, Hebei Province broke into the house of Ms. Wang Jianmei, a Falun Gong practitioner of Houpu village. After entering the house, they dashed around everywhere and started to search rampantly without any explanation. They stole the book Zhuan Falun and several truth clarifying materials.

At around 7:30 p.m. on February 23, 2012, officers climbed over a courtyard wall and broke into the house of Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Shi Xiuzhi of Qianpu village, and stole Falun Dafa books and truth clarifying materials.

At around 7 p.m. on February 23, 2012, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhao Shude's house was also illegally ransacked. It is said that more than thirty people participated in ransacking the house.

At around 8 p.m. on February 23, 2012, more than ten workers and police officers from the Liangwa Town government and Liangwa Town Police Station broke into Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Xie Xiugai's house. They tore off an art piece that read, “Broadly shines a Buddha’s light, Justly setting all things right” on it. Then, they tried to pull down Master's picture and a Falun emblem. Xie Xiugai tried to stop them and asked them repeatedly not to commit these crimes. The officers pushed Xie Xiugai to the side. At that moment, Xie Xiugai appeared to have physical problems, but the officers didn't stop and took away Master's picture, truth clarifying materials, and some cash. After further clarifying the truth, the Dafa books and Master's picture were returned.

Xie Xiugai was once illegally sentenced to prison for nine years and was persecuted badly in the prison. She was harmed severely both physically and mentally. She just came out of prison and returned home last fall. Her health condition is still not good.
