Police Officer Wang Quanfeng of the Fangzi District of Weifang City, Shandong Province, Tortures and Murders Falun Gong Practitioners
Wang Quanfeng, male, about 38 years old, is the chief person guilty of persecuting Falun Gong in the National Security Section of Fangzi District Public Security Sub-Bureau.
During the period of time around July 20, 1999, Wang Quanfeng went to every township in Fangzi district and ordered all the police stations to escalate their persecution of practitioners. All practitioner assistants in charge of township practice sites had been taken to the Fangzi District Great Wall Hotel. Police forced all practitioners to watch tv programs and read newspapers containing propaganda and slander against Falun Gong. At the same time, they extorted money and personal property from practitioners.
In March 2000, under Wang Quanfeng's orders and intimidation, police stations in every township committed brutal beatings, illegally detained practitioners, and sent about 13 practitioners to forced labor camps. Wang Weinian, the Fangzi District Secretary of the Communist Party, told Wang, "If you want to obtain a promotion, you must take strong measures against Falun Gong." Wang then became more rampant in persecuting practitioners. During the holidays celebrating the Chinese National Day in October, police in this district again persecuted practitioners on a large scale. In Ceniu Town, they arrested 17 practitioners and detained them in the Town Road Station. Those practitioners suffered inhuman tortures there. Many practitioners were tortured to death during this period of time. Among them, Meng Qingxi from Mu Village and Wang Yixin from Gouxi Town died from torture; Wang Aijuan, who had worked in Weifang Cotton Mill, was tortured to death at the Fangzi Detention Center; Wu Jingxia, a 29-year-old mother of a 15-month-old child, living in Gejia Village of Fengfang Street, was tortured to death. Numerous bruises, blood stains, and cuts made her corpse too horrible to look at. Meichun Town practitioner Zhao Wenming's shoulder was severely wounded due to the police torturing him with a knife and screwdriver. He and two other practitioners in this town were sent to forced labor camps. Practitioner Yuan Kun and spouse, of Meichun Town, had been appealing in Beijing for Falun Gong. Wang Quanfeng used every vicious means to persecute their family. A year ago, this couple was forced to leave home and wander about to avoid further persecution. But despite this, Wang still did not leave them alone. He has been searching for them so that he can arrest them.
In May 2000, practitioner Li Yitang, an employee of Weifang Electric Power Factory, suffered a brutal beating from Wang because he appealed for Falun Gong in Beijing. He was wounded so severely that he was unable to squat or to sit down for a long time. Wang also forced him to pay a large sum of money as a penalty.
In October 2000, because he refused to give up his belief in Falun Gong, practitioner Ding Li suffered such a barbarous beating from Wang that he lost consciousness a few times while being interrogated and tortured. Ding was then sentenced to 3 years in a labor camp. He is still detained in Cangle Labor Camp.
At the end of 2001, Du Jiqun, the former leader of Fangzi District Falun Gong Assistance Center, was abducted to a brainwashing class in Weifang City. Wang Quanfeng and Zhao Chenlin, another police officer, extorted 10,000 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan] in cash from Du's family members, which the officers put into their own pockets.
After practitioner Wang Yixin was tortured to death, Wang Quanfeng attempted to arrest Wang Yixin's son and daughter-in-law who are also Falun Gong practitioners. This couple was forced to leave their home to avoid further persecution. Their elderly mother and child were left alone at home and they depended on each other for survival.
In February 2002, Wang Quanfeng rushed into practitioner Zhu Tianfu and Zhang Ximei's home in Ceniu Town. Zhu was taken away and Zhang was forced to leave home and wander about. Zhu suffered inhuman tortures in the detention center. Later on, Zhu was sentenced to 5 years in jail without going through any legal procedures and without even informing Zhu's family members.
In the spring of 2002, Wang Quanfeng started a new round of brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in Ceniu Town. Many people's homes were illegally searched and their property was confiscated. Many practitioners were forced to leave home and wander about. Learning that a practitioner in Mie Village kept a truth-clarifying VCD at his/her home, Wang led police to search the home. Although they found nothing, they took a large sum of money from this practitioner and kept it for themselves.
In March 2002, Wang kidnapped Zhao Xuemei, a middle school teacher and a former classmate of Wang Quanfeng, and put her in a brainwashing class. Wang and policeman Zhao Chenlin also used this opportunity to extort money and property from her family members. Failing in their extortion, Wang attempted to plan other ways to persecute her. As a result, Zhao Xuemei was forced to leave her home to escape the persecution he was planning.
In June 2002, Wang led police to break into a practitioner's home late at night. He even shamelessly tore off a female practitioner's underwear and took away all the cash he found in her home.
In June 2002, Wang sent practitioner Zhang Chuanzhen to Brainwashing Classes held in the Cangle Labor Camp. Zhang's wife was forced to become homeless.
Wang Quanfeng's crimes are too numerous to list. In such a small district (only 8 towns), 4 practitioners have been tortured to death; more than 10 practitioners have been sentenced to jails and labor camps; and about 20 practitioners have been forced to leave home.
As the old Chinese proverb says, "Good is rewarded with good and evil with evil." Both the society's law and the heavenly law will punish Wang Quanfeng in the future.
