Four More Practitioners Illegally Detained in Rucheng, Shandong Province
(Minghui.org) Four more female Falun Gong practitioners were illegally arrested on April 7, 2015 in Rushan City, Shandong Province, following the arrest of their friend Ms. Yu Jingtao six months earlier on October 6, 2014. The four were detained for 17 days in the same detention center.
On the day of their arrest, the police searched and ransacked their homes, taking personal belongings, such as computers, printers, and other items.
During a routine health check, Ms. Guo Zhihua and Ms. Geng Congyu both had exceedingly high blood pressure, which would have prevented their admittance to the detention center. They were detained anyway and forced to take unknown drugs.
Ms. Guo's face hurt and her hands often went numb after taking the drugs. Ms. Geng was forced to take 16 tablets a day until she started vomiting blood.
The guards tried to frighten them by forcing them to watch the brutal force-feeding of Ms. Yu, who had by then become severely emaciated due to ill treatment.
They could hardly hold back their tears to see her in such agony.
The four practitioners were released on April 23, after each of their families had 1000 yuan extorted from them.
However, Ms. Yu is still in the detention center. The police and the procuratorate office sent fabricated charges to the local court again on April 21 in their attempt to have her imprisoned. Her file had been rejected by the court earlier.
Her lawyer is continuing with his demand for her acquittal.
