(Clearwisdom.net) Because of Mr. Li Wenming's insistence in his Falun Dafa cultivation, the authorities have persecuted him since July 20, 1999, when the CCP started the persecution. In November 1999 and December 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal and was detained twice. Between January 2001 and November 2005 he was detained many times. Those responsible were from the Yunquan Police Station, the detention center, the Xiazhai Forced Labor Camp in Datong, the Xindian Forced Labor Camp in Taiyuan, the Second Detention Center, the Shanxi Province First Prison, and others. He was only able to be home for eight months between February and November 2002. When he returned in November 2005, his workplace still persecuted him and didn't pay him a salary, so he lost his source of income.

On November 14, 1999, Mr. Li was arrested again when he went to Beijing to appeal. He was able to escape, but on his way home a security person from his workplace who happened to be on the train recognized him. Mr. Li was sent to the Xihuayuan Police Station. He wasn't able to go home until after 38 days in the police station.

On December 20, 2000, Mr. Li went to Beijing again to appeal and was arrested by the police at Tiananmen Square. Two days later he was sent to the Hebei Province Liaison Office in Beijing and later released.

Right after the 15th day of the first month of the lunar year of 2001, Mr. Li was taken to the Security Section at his workplace. Those responsible were Zhen De and others from the Security Section. After Zhen beat Mr. Li brutally, Zhen sent him to the Yunquan District Police Department. Several officials, including the section chief of the police department and the 610 Office head Yong Junfeng, used an electric baton on Mr. Li, even in his mouth and on his penis. On the third day he was tortured all night long. Then he was sent to the Mine Detention Center. Guard Liu Jiang and several inmates beat Mr. Li. He was held in the detention center for three months. On May 27, he was sent to the Xingdian Forced Labor Camp in Taiyuan and was abused there for over a year. The abuse included corporal punishment, being forced to stand for long periods of time, sleep deprivation, and other methods. Guards Wang Xing and others were involved in this. On February 17, 2002, Mr. Li Wenming returned home.

After he returned, he was not spared from the persecution. He was followed every day. He was not allowed to return to work and he received no pension.

On November 9, 2002, three people, including Xihuayuan Police Station chief Zhang and others, showed up to search Mr. Li's house and arrest him. He was sent to the district police department, where he was handcuffed to a chair and several guards beat him with electric batons. During the night of November 11, the guards dragged him down to the basement, took off his clothes, and handcuffed him to a metal chair. Guard Wang Shan beat him using electric batons. Liu Yi, Zhang Ji, and Kang from the 610 Office were present. They beat him and injured his penis. Four guards held his legs down and beat him from 7:00 p.m. until after 11:00 p.m.

After being detained in the Second Detention Center for 15 months, Mr. Li was sent to the First Prison in Shanxi Province. The guards there incited criminal inmates such as Zhao Junfeng and others to beat and choke Mr. Li. They forbade him bathroom use and deprived him of sleep. They forced him to stand. Between July and September 2004, they beat him every day because he refused to be "reformed." From 8:00 a.m. till midnight, if he didn't stand and tried to sit, he would be beaten.

After being grossly abused and tortured for three years in the forced labor camp, Mr. Li Wenming returned home in November 2005. So far his employers have refused to hire him back and have not paid him one penny. The persecution is continuing.
