Case Description:


Practitioner Mr. Bai Xiaojun, a young lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at NENU, was illegally detained for a year after he went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong in July 2000. In January 2002, after he had served seven months beyond his term, he was taken to the Xinglongshan Brainwashing Center in Changchun City. Mr. Bai was later detained in the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp, where he died as a result of persecution on July 18, 2003. This case was widely known among Dafa practitioners in Changchun and the general public.

Since July 22, 1999, when the Chinese Communist regime began persecuting Falun Gong, some members of the CCP committees at NENU and its colleges and departments, as well as its affiliated schools, have severely persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners. They compelled students, teachers, and general staff members to hand in their Dafa books and write "guarantee statements," and they unlawfully searched practitioners' dormitories and homes. They further sent practitioners to brainwashing centers, expelled them from the university, stripped them of their employment, imposed fines on them, and confiscated their home registrations. These officials also collaborated with the police to send practitioners to forced labor camps, detention centers, and brainwashing centers.

These acts, committed in violation of the Chinese constitution, have caused practitioners and their families great physical suffering and mental anguish, making their lives very hard. They also forced students to watch Dafa-slandering videos and to sign their names to support the persecution.

Since December 2002, Liu Haimin, deputy Party Committee secretary of the CCP Committee at NENU, has been involved in the persecution. He clamoured at a university assembly, "It is strictly forbidden to recruit students or teaching staff who are Falun Gong practitioners. Whichever school or department recruits Falun Gong students or teaching staff assumes full responsibility for their actions."

Lecturer Mr. Bai Xiaojun was tortured to death. Ms. Wang Huilian, a 32-year-old lecturer in the School of Environmental Science, was illegally sentenced to forced labor and suffered brutal persecution at the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp. Mr. Ma Guohua, a 36-year-old library employee, was suspended from his employment for refusing to write a guarantee statement to abandon Falun Dafa. Ms. Li Haizhen, a 40-year-old lecturer in the School of Foreign Languages at NENU, was transferred elsewhere for refusing to write the guarantee statements. Ms. Li Yan, a 37-year-old physics teacher from the NENU-Affiliated High School, was transferred. Ms. Li had been praised as one of the "Ten Best Science Teachers" in Changchun City for many years. They demoted her to teaching assistant for refusing to write a guarantee statement.
