Police Forcibly Withdraw Blood from Three Falun Gong Practitioners
(Minghui.org) Three Falun Gong practitioners from Guizhou Province recently had their blood forcibly drawn by the police.
These practitioners, Ms. Yang Zhongxiu, Ms. Zhang Qinzhi, and Ms. Zhou Shuxiu from Kaili City, Guizhou Province, had their blood taken by the police between October 31 and November 4, 2016. Both Ms. Yang and Ms. Zhang are in their 70s.
A fourth practitioner, 70-year-old Ms. Pang Jihong, had her blood drawn by the police on October 26, 2016.
The practitioners suspect the police were retaliating for their criminal complaints against former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Jiang Zemin, who ordered the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999. The practitioners believe that their blood test results might be added to the database for the CCP to harvest organs from living Falun Gong practitioners to fuel the transplant industry in China.

Ms. Yang Zhongxiu: They Put My Record into the Computer Right After Taking My Blood
According to Ms. Yang, she was returning from grocery shopping when she saw several officers from Chengxi Police Station and Luo Peng, from the Domestic Security Division in Kaili, waiting for her at the door. They followed her into her home and searched every room.
She didn't cooperate with the officers, and they forcibly arrested her. Two officers took her by the arms as Luo pushed her from behind. They shoved her into a police car and drove to Chengxi Police Station.
Ms. Yang said, “In the interrogation room at the police station, three people sat in a row in front of a table. There was a computer on the table. On the left side was a camera videotaping me. They asked me to sit on a chair facing the table. I refused.”
Ms. Yang said a woman then came, with a cotton swab and a needle in her hand. Two officers held her torso, and Luo held her left arm. The woman took blood from her twice. After they were done, those officers entered some information into the computer and then left.
