Solemn Declarations from Two Dafa Practitioners
I was arrested and taken to a police station by a plainclothes officer on March 1, 2012, for distributing Shenyun Performing Arts DVDs. My family went to the police station to ask for my release. They also asked help from all acquaintances and those with good relations with the authorities. The police gave me a piece of plain paper and asked me to sign it, which I did.
However, the police did not release me that evening, but took me to a detention center. While being held at the center, I cooperated with officers due to my weak righteous thoughts. On about the fifth day, officers interrogated and told me that I would be subject to forced labor. Because of my strong fear, my family tried to ask for help from acquaintances and those who have good relations with authorities. As their suggestions, I pretended to be sick and in the end signed a physical examination document.
I did not know that the police had extorted 30,000 yuan for my release from my family. All I have done was due to my strong fears. I did not firmly believe in Master and Falun Dafa and let the old forces take advantage of a loophole.
Herewith, I solemnly declare that everything I have said and done that does not conform to the principles of Dafa is null and void. I will firmly cultivate in Falun Dafa, believe in Master, and do the three things well.

Police arrested and tortured several fellow practitioners in 2003. From then on, I no longer dared to cultivate in Falun Dafa and accept new lectures by Master from fellow practitioners.
The police, under the pretense of making investigative "follow up visits," tried to persecute me in 2004. I and my husband signed on a document without thinking about what it entailed. Later, with fellow practitioners' patient help and hints from Master, I returned to Dafa. I recalled what I had done that let Dafa down and caused losses to Falun Dafa in 2004.
Herewith, I solemnly declare that everything I have said and done that dose not conform to the principles of Dafa is null and void. I will make up for the losses that I have caused to Falun Dafa, firmly cultivate in Falun Dafa to the end, and return home with Master.
