[China] Illegal Detention of a 70-Year-Old Female Practitioner Who Is Also a Retired Government Official, While Clarifying the Truth
On May 11, 2002, 70-year-old practitioner Ms. Tang Shiying was reported to police while clarifying the truth to the public at a shopping mall in her hometown, Quanzhou City in the Guilin area. Policemen in Quanzhou City illegally handcuffed her and forcibly took her to the police department for interrogation, although Tang was over 70 years old. Afterwards, they called the head of the county and also policemen from her previous workplace in Guangxi Province to bring her back for further detention, after they had imprisoned her for a month. She is still not released as of now. Her family's requests for visits are all denied.
Ms. Tang Shiying began to practice Falun Gong in 1997. All of her diseases disappeared after her practice. She looks like she is in her 40s though she is over 70 years old. After July 20, 1999, she went to Beijing to peacefully appeal for Falun Gong. She went to the provincial capital to protest illegal trails on Dafa practitioners. She had been detained many times. Facing the persecutors, she fearlessly spread Dafa and clarified the truth. She clarified the truth to whomever she met in her daily life. Even the county head and policemen who were ordered to escort her back said she was very determined and respectable. All of Tang Shiying's sons and daughters rationally argued her case with the relevant departments.
[Dongying City, Shandong Province] Triumph Oil Field Company's Residential Administrative Office Hires Masked People to Tear Down Truth-Clarifying Signs
A residential administrative office at the Triumph Oil Field Company hired multiple security people to watch the residential area. Some of the security people are designated to tear down truth-clarifying signs posted by practitioners. They also know that they are doing something disgraceful, so they covered their faces with cloth to remain unrecognizable to others.
[Shandong Province] Eastern Airlines Qingdao Division Authorities Persecute Staff Who Sympathize with Falun Gong
Recently I met with a friend who works at Eastern Airlines. That individual complained to me that the company required every staff member to write a "Statement of Breaking Away." [This statement declares that they will break from practicing Falun Gong and they will never associate with any Falun Gong practitioners.] Those who refuse to write this were to be suspended from their job. A security person of the company had positive attitude towards Falun Gong. His superior regarded him as a "dangerous person" and has suspended him from his job. It's said he will be sent to a brainwashing center. This person's whereabouts are currently unknown.
[Yantai City, Shandong Province] Arrest of Dafa Practitioners Wang Wei and Li Ming from Fushan District
From April to May 2002, officials from Fushan District's "610 Office" [An agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] illegally arrested several dozen Dafa practitioners. Some practitioners were sent to brainwashing centers and some were put into prisons. After spending a period of time going from place to place, Dafa practitioners Wang Wei and Li Ming returned home to resume local Fa-rectification work. Some collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] reported them to the "610 Office" and the practitioners were thus taken away from home.

[Qidong County, Hunan Province] Officers in the "610 Office" Rampantly Kidnap Dafa Practitioners

Li Wei is also known for his cruelty.
[Jinchang City, Gansu Province] Policemen Kidnap Over Twenty Dafa Practitioners and Abuse Them with Excruciating Torture
Lawless officers from Jinchang City's Police Department and the Political & Judiciary Section from the Longshou Police Precinct persecuted Dafa practitioners without restraint. Since March 2002, they have illegally detained over 20 Dafa practitioners and mentally and physically abused and tortured numerous practitioners with many excruciating measures, including deprivation of sleep, handcuffing behind the back, punching and kicking while being hung up, and also the "tiger bench" [a small iron bench that is approximately 20 cm (6 inches) tall. Practitioners' knees are tightly tied on the small bench. He has to sit straight up with his eyes looking straight ahead. His hands are tied on the back or sometimes placed on his knees. Usually some hard objects are inserted underneath the practitioner's lower legs or ankles to make it harder for them to tolerate this abuse. See illustration on http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html]. In addition, all practitioners were told that they would be sentenced to imprisonment or forced labor. Some practitioners have been detained for nearly half a year and have still not been released. According to news from insiders, before the 16th People's Congress is concluded, police authorities will detain practitioners and won't release any of them.
