[Yingkou City, Liaoning Province] Belated News: Practitioner Wang Baojin Illegally Sentenced to 10-year Prison Term
In September 2001, Mr. Wang Baojin and Yang Zhifang, two Yingkou practitioners, went shopping for equipment at the Sanxing Offset Printing Machine Manufacturer in Yingkou City. Someone who was there reported them to the police. Four policemen from the Politics & Security Section of the Public Security Bureau abducted Wang Baojin and sent him to the local detention center. During the interrogation, Wang Baojin kept silent. The police instructed criminals from the prison to beat him up. A medical examination, performed after the beating, found that his spleen was injured. Then, without any legal proceedings, he was sentenced to ten years in prison. Currently he is detained at the Wafangdian Prison.
[Anshan City, Liaoning Province] Practitioner Zhang Guanghong Illegally Sentenced
Mr. Zhang Guanghong, a practitioner from Anshan City, had been detained at forced labor camps many times simply because he would not give up the practice of Falun Dafa. Currently he has been sentenced to four years in prison and is being detained at the Anshan No.2 Detention Center. He was fired from his job. His wife, Qiu Sihua, also a Falun Dafa practitioner, was told by her boss that if she did not write a statement promising never to practice Falun Dafa again or associate with other practitioners, she would be dismissed. Her sister Qiu Sihui is currently being detained at the Anshan No.1 Detention Center. Qiu Sihui could not take care of herself due to the effects of the horrible torture she endured. Every time she needs to go to the washroom, four people have to carry her. The Anshan Politics & Law Committee said, "We will release all but Qiu Sihui."

[Wafangdian City, Liaoning Province] Thirty Falun Dafa Practitioners on Hunger Strike at the Wafangdian Prison
Recently, thirty practitioners went on a hunger strike at the Wafangdian Prison to protest their illegal detention. Two of them were extremely weak and their lives are in great danger. They are:
Gao Hui, (assumed name: Li Jun), is from Dengta City in Liaoning Province. The police tortured him for several days. Consequently, his internal organs including his gallbladder are damaged. His life is in great danger.
Liu Enhua, (assumed name: Liu Yantao), from Shenyang City of Liaoning Province resisted the illegal detention by refusing to recite the regulations of the prison as well as the hunger strike. Consequently, he was tortured very brutally and has become so weak that he cannot straighten his back.

[Tonghua City, Hebei Province] One Brainwashing Class Costs Over Ten Thousand Yuan
On February 23, 2001, the "610 Office" in Tonghua City held a brainwashing class at the Party School. Fifty-two Falun Dafa practitioners were illegally taken away from their homes or jobs, and forced to endure this event. At a recent conference, Mr. Meng from the "610 Office" of that city, who is currently working on the Politics & Law Committee, said, "Over ten thousand Yuan were spent on this brainwashing class." (500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China)
At a group discussion, a person who was designated by a working unit to watch over Falun Gong practitioners said that each practitioner would be charged 25 Yuan a day for food and accommodation. No salary would be paid to the people during the class period of time. The blankets were provided by the class. It is an infringement of human rights to use the taxpayers' money in persecuting good people who follow the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance". Falun Gong practitioners are forced to write a statement of regret (expressing remorse for "going against the government"), a statement of denouncement (renouncing and defaming Falun Gong) and a statement of dissociation (promising never to associate with practitioners again). Those who don't write the statements are illegally sentenced to forced labor. It directly violates their human rights.
[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Illegally Detained
On December 11, 2003, practitioners Zhu Yangchun, Jiang Lili, and two aged practitioners Ms. Wu and Ms. Hu were illegally arrested while distributing truth-clarifying materials near Tieqiao Village of Hanyang.
They were sent to the police substation at Yongfeng Township. Jiang Lili was transferred to the No.1 Female Detention Center at Wujiashan in Wuhan City. Zhu Yangchun and another practitioner who was over 60 years old were sent to the Yangyuan Brainwashing Center.
[Tonghua City, Hebei Province] The Truth of the So-Called "Help Education" at Tonghua Forced Labor Camp
Hu Zhongshi (retired), former political instructor of Tonghua Forced Labor Camp, and Sun Jianfu (retired), former head of the Educational Team, talked about the so-called "assistance" at the brainwashing classes. They admitted that they were telling lies previously about what went on there. They admitted that practitioner Cao Zhonghua was illegally detained there simply because this person would not sign a paper promising not to go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. They further stated that during detention, Sun Jianfu used his elbow violently hit the practitioner in the mid-section. He also instructed three criminals to step on Cao Zhonghua's head, back and legs. Consequently, Cao Zhonghua could not walk normally. Cao's family members went to visit the practitioner twice and were turned away by the authorities. After Cao Zhonghua's release, there was so much pain in the mid-section that Cao could not work.
[Tonghua City, Hebei Province] Tonghua New Railway Station Office Illegally Search Practitioners' Home and Extort Money
Tonghua New Railway Station office illegally extorts 2000 Yuan from each Falun Gong practitioner who goes to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. In addition, they tried a new scam: asking for 2000 Yuan from the work places of practitioners who have been laid off because production had been temporarily suspended. However, the practitioners' workplaces refused to pay. They then went to practitioners' home to ask for the 2000 Yuan. Practitioners' family members contended, "There is no regulation that says we are required to pay this fee. Aren't you collecting money for no reason?" The officials could not answer.
Cui Jing, director of the office (who is currently working at Dongchang District), went to search practitioners' home without showing any legal documents to support the search. Xiao Yuxian, accountant of the office, searched several practitioners' homes from top to bottom, going through their bookshelves, drawers and personal items.
[Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] The So-Called "Reflection Room" at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp
There is a room labeled the "Reflection Room" on the forth floor of the No.2 Female Branch at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. People from outside the camp were told that it was a reflection room, but actually it is used for detaining Falun Dafa practitioners who remain steadfast in their cultivation. They are kept in there to force them to change their minds and give up practicing. The inner walls and doors are covered with a thick spongy material. People who are detained in it feel suffocated and short of breath.
[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] "I Did Not Say That You Are Guilty"
I was escorted back to the Dashagou Detention Center in Qingyuan County of Liaoning Province, where many practitioners are being illegally detained. During detention, we went on a hunger strike to protest our detention. The detention center is for people who commit crimes and, as Falun Dafa practitioners, we are doing our best to be good people. However, we were detained for saying, "Falun Dafa is good!" Later on, director Yin of the center was afraid that we might die, so he asked us to sign something. I had a look at what was on the paper. It says, "The detention center is not responsible if any danger occurs due to hunger strike." I told him right away, "I won't sign." The director asked me why. I said, "We are not guilty of any crimes and we are trying to be good people." The director said, "I did not say that you are guilty." I replied, "Since we are not guilty, why do you keep us here." The director could not answer.
[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] A Female Practitioner Is Tortured for Trying to Appeal in Beijing
In 2001, a practitioner from Qingyuan County was arrested for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. She was detained in a small detention house at the edge of Beijing City. During her detention, she was not allowed to sleep or go to the washroom for three days because she refused to provide her name and her family's location. Later, a local policewoman named Xu Jinrong recognized her and escorted her back to the Dongyuan Police Substation.
Police from the Dongyuan Police Substation tortured the practitioner with all possible torture instruments. They made her sit on the "Tiger Bench" and did not allow her to sleep. Policeman Wang Lifeng covered her eyes with a towel and then poured alcohol into her mouth. He did not stop until she was out of breath. Then they sent her to the Dashagou Detention Center. During her detention, the practitioner went on a hunger strike, protesting the persecution. A female police guard named Wang Xuejing beat the practitioner's mouth and head with metal keys until she bled. She also slapped the practitioner on the face twenty times and knocked her head against the wall. She instructed others to force-feed the practitioner with food and salt water by inserting a pipe into her nose. The practitioner was not released until her life was in danger.
[Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Are Illegally Arrested on a Large Scale
On December 7, 2003, several practitioners were arrested. Practitioner He Wenzhuo from Xigu was reported by a man and a woman. This practitioner has not been seen since. A practitioner known as "Old Lady Yang" (Her last name is Zhou; she is the mother of Yang Xuegui who was illegally sentenced to prison) from Qilihe was abducted by two strangers at a barbershop near her home. They grabbed her arms, dragged her out of the barbershop and pushed her into a black car. At the scene was one person in a police uniform while the rest were in plainclothes. There was also a woman taking photos.
In the afternoon, a married couple, Wei and He, were arrested in their rented home located in Yezhuwan of Qilihe District, the dormitory of the Electricity Bureau. All of their property was confiscated.

It was learned that practitioners from the Chengguan District were arrested as well.
On the same day, practitioners in Jinchang were arrested. Three days later, another practitioner said that a practitioner whose last name is Yang from Xiuchuan of Qilihe was also abducted.
