Ms. Wang Fei Arrested After Years of Not Being Able to Return Home
(Minghui.org) Ms. Wang Fei had stayed away from her home since November 2012 to avoid being persecuted by the police for of her belief in Falun Gong. The police from Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia followed her car and arrested her on January 31, 2018. They seized the car, her laptop, and other items.
They submitted the case to the Hongshan District Procuratorate six days following her arrest. Her arrest has recently been approved.
Ms. Wang was arrested three times since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Gong in 1999. Her house was ransacked four times, resulting in loss of her property totaling over a 100,000 yuan. She was sentenced to three years in prison for refusing to give up Falun Gong, a spiritual practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
26-Day Detention, Extortion in 2001
Officers from the Police Bureau of the Yuanbaoshan Power Plant, her husband's employer, ordered Ms. Wang to report to their office in October 2001.
She and four other practitioners were interrogated about practicing Falun Gong. The practitioners stayed firm in their belief. The police cuffed them to the heating pipes and did not provide them water or food. They weren’t allowed to move, except for trips to the restroom.
Nine employees of the power plant, including the director, were involved in persecuting her. They did not provide her with any food. Her friend delivered meals to her.
Her husband did not visit her until a week later. He slapped her upon seeing her (Family members who fail to understand Falun Gong often blame practitioners for refusing to renounce their faith and inviting persecution). She was released 26 days later after they extorted 2,000 yuan from her husband.
Harassment, Surveillance and Self-Exile, 2012-2018
Officers from the Yongju Police Department went to her workplace in 2012 to take her away. They also asked to see her home. They said the CCP's 18th National Congress was to be held soon. They were monitoring all the practitioners.
Ms. Wang refused to go with them, and told them the facts about Falun Gong. They said they could not release her and doing so would mean losing their jobs. Two police cars arrived with a dozen police officers an hour later. They wanted her to pledge that she would not go to Beijing to appeal to the Central Government on behalf of Falun Gong. She refused to pledge.
They arrived at her home late that evening, after 10 p.m., but Ms Wang was not home. They ransacked the place and seized her personal belongings, valued at approximately 20,000 yuan. They also took 2,000 yuan in cash.
Liang Zhanting, the new chief at the Hongshan District Police Department, put her name on the all-points bulletin to alert the police force in November 2012. She was forced leave home to avoid further arrest and persecution.
