The Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners in Hunan Province
(Minghui.org) Three female Falun Gong practitioners, Liu Qingxiu, Hu Xinyuan, and Gong Dexiu have recently been illegally sentenced to prison by officials from public security institutions. Ms. Liu was sentenced to a ten-year prison term, Ms. Hu to five years, and Ms. Gong to three years.
About three dozen Falun Gong practitioners were arrested in the early morning of September 5, 2011 by a group of over one hundred people, which included the secretary of the municipal committee in Jing City, personnel from the 610 Office, local police officers, officials from the State Security Brigade, and street office personnel. The practitioners were separately detained in police stations, detention centers, and public security bureaus. Illegal interrogation methods were used to force "confessions." The above mentioned three practitioners have since been illegally sentenced.
Ms. Liu Qingxiu, 47, has been persecuted many times by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities. She has been arrested, and put in detention centers and forced labor camps. Early on the morning of September 5, 2011 she was arrested at her home, which is located in Li County. She was thereafter detained at the city's police station, the East Detention Center in Changde City, and the Baiheshan Detention Center. At her home, police officers confiscated a few computers, a printer, a large quantity of office supplies, and a pickup truck, which was returned to her a few months later. In mid-May 2012, personnel from the Jing City Procuratorate and court secretly put Ms. Liu on trial and sentenced her to ten years in prison.
Hu Xinyuan, 55, was also arrested, in a similar manner as Liu Qingxiu, and sentenced to five years in prison on November 29, 2012.
Gong Dexiu, 61, was arrested many times by police officers and personnel from the 610 Office, and was put in a forced labor camp twice. She was arrested and taken to the Wangjiaqiao Police Station early on the morning of September 5, 2011. She was later released because her husband, who had brain surgery, needed her to take of him. She has since been constantly harassed by police officers and 610 Office agents, and monitored by personnel from the Procuratorate and the court. Ms. Gong was put on trial at the City Court in mid May, at which time she clarified the facts about Dafa to people. She was sentenced to three years in prison on November 29, 2011 and immediately taken to the detention center in Changde City. Upon arriving, she went on a protest hunger strike right away. She was force-fed and given injections every day for five days.
Three Falun Gong practitioners, Ms. Hu Huaying, 62, Ms. Xiang Yang, 61, and Ms. Wang Yaoyu, 58, were arrested on September 5, 2011 and taken to a labor camp to serve three year terms. Officials later noticed that they were physically unfit and therefore released them.
