(Clearwisdom.net) In December 1999, police from Panlian Township of Miyi County took Falun Gong practitioners by force to a brainwashing class. They beat the practitioners with rubber batons, made them squat down for a long time, handcuffed them and brutally punched and kicked them. Dafa practitioners were beaten black and blue, many walking with a limp as a result. Even in such a condition, they were still forced to do cleaning work for the Panlian Township government. They tried to force the practitioners to write guarantee letters (to not practice anymore). Some Dafa practitioners insisted that they would not write a guarantee letter and were beaten until they lost consciousness. Some were beaten until they could not stand up and were unable even to go the toilet without help. Moreover, they were forced to pay 15 Yuan per day (living expense of 5 Yuan per day and 10 Yuan per day for hired thugs and administration). Some practitioners didn't have money and were forced to write out debt notices so that the officials could extort the money from their families.
