(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Ms. Li Jinxiu from Fengjiazhuang, Xuzhuang Town, Jizhou City, Hebei Province, passed away as a result of the unlawful, long-term persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). On June 23, 2005, Mr. Xia Shige was detained and is now facing an illegal trial.

Ms. Li Jinxiu, 60 years old, started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Before she started practicing, she had heart disease, arthritis, and various other diseases. After she began to practice, her health significantly improved. In May 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal to the government on behalf of Falun Gong. On July 20, she was illegally sentenced and sent to a forced labor camp for three years. Because she was diagnosed with disease, the forced labor camp refused to admit her. After she returned home, her younger daughter went to appeal to the government to clarify the truth of Falun Gong. Because her elder daughter was producing "truth-clarification" materials, she was also detained. This daughter was arrested and sent to a brainwashing center and detention for about six months. Due to the continual harassment and persecution by Xuzhuang Township Police Station officers in Jizhou City, Ms. Li Jinxiu passed away on December 13, 2005.

Last year, practitioner Mr. Xia Shige accompanied an elderly lady of 85, a resident of Xuzhuang Town, to the Hengshui City Municipal Committee to demand the release of her two sons, Kang Yanshu and Kang Yanxiang, who were detained illegally. On June 23, 2005, Mr. Xia was arrested and beaten. Zhanghuai Police Station personnel, including Wang Zehui and police officers Li Peihong and Wang Qiyang, were responsible. As a result, the nail of one of Mr. Xia's big toes was torn off, he limped, and his leg swelled for a month. He is currently detained at Jizhou Detention Center. The authorities intend to subject Mr. Xia to an illegal and unfair trial, and he is on a hunger strike to resist the persecution.

Mr. Xia's case is reportedly being overseen by Xia Qizeng, who is the Vice President of Jizhou City Court. When several people tried to speak to Xia Qizeng in order to "clarify the truth" to him, he hid from them. He claimed that this case had been transferred to the provincial court and that Mr. Xia was the one chiefly responsible for distributing the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.

Xuzhuang Township Police Station personnel persecute practitioners mostly severely in Jizhou City. From the police chief to regular officers--all have beaten practitioners brutally, illegally ransacked their homes, fined them, detained them at home, and tortured them frequently. Guo Shuangnian ganged up with Gao Shufan, Township Communist Party Committee Secretary Li Yinghao, and others to cruelly beat and shock a three-year-old child's mother, Xia Chunying, with electric batons. The child was so terrified that he was mentally disordered for two years. They once beat practitioner Mr. Xia Shige so severely that he lost consciousness. They shocked practitioner Ms. Qiao Changrong, who is nearly 60 years old, with electric batons, causing blisters all over her back. Even though practitioners try very hard to clarify the truth to these people, and they know that practitioners are good people, they still carry out the evil Communist Party's evil commands.
