[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Li Naimei and Li Naibin Arrested by the "610 Office"

In the middle of February 2003, Li Naimei and her sister Li Naibin were arrested by the "610 Office" [a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches] in Guangzhou City. Li Naibin was sent to a brainwashing center. We do not know Li Naimei's whereabouts.

[Doumen County, Guangdong Province] "610 Office" Sends Falun Dafa Practitioners to a Brainwashing Center Before the 16th People's Congress Convened

Before the 16th People's Congress, personnel from the county "610 Office" frantically arrested practitioners. Currently, practitioners Wang Xiaoyuan, Lin Cuichan (female), Yang Xiumei (female), Yang (female), Zeng Qing, and others are being illegally detained at the Zhuhai City Brainwashing Center. In this center, practitioner Chen, in his 20s, was seen bleeding from his mouth because of the beatings. He was not provided any food for three days and yet his family was forced to pay 125 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan] per day in lodging fees. Zeng Qing was arrested on October 2000 on his way home from work. He experienced various inhuman tortures in the Sanshui Forced Labor Camp and was released in August 2001. He made a solemn announcement to invalidate the statements that he was forced to write in the labor camp and was again sent to a brainwashing center.

[Jiamusi, Heilongjiang Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Huo Jinping in Critical Condition in the Jiamusi Detention Center

Huo Jinping, male, is about 35 years old. He went to Beijing in 1999 to appeal for Dafa and was illegally sent to the Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp. On November 3, 2000, he and 10 other practitioners escaped from the camp and didn't return to their homes so they wouldn't be sent back to the camp. Around October 2002, the police arrested Huo in Shandong Province and sent him back to the Jiamusi Detention Center. Huo is in critical condition now from being on a prolonged hunger strike in protest of the persecution. However the detention center still refuses to release him. We hope kind people will help. The phone number of the Jiamusi Detention Center is 86-454-8782461.

[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Police Arrest Many Falun Dafa Practitioners

In August 2002, practitioner Ma Huaidong was arrested for hanging Dafa banners that clarify the true facts of the persecution. In the detention center, he suffered various cruel tortures. He was secretly sentenced to five years in the Dabei Prison in Shenyang. Huaidong's sister Ma Hongxia was arrested in September 2002 and was illegally sentenced to six years in prison. Their parents were also later arrested.

In January 2002, the police illegally arrested practitioners including Sun Yongsheng, Jia Naizhi, and Liu Chengyan. They are suffering cruel tortures in the Second Detention Center. The police strictly block the information and have not even informed the practitioner's families.

In March 2003, the police broke into practitioner Su Min's home and arrested her. We do not know her whereabouts.

[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Zhang Guixia from Xinbin County Is Brutally Tortured at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp

On February 27, 2002, the police from Xinbin County illegally arrested Zhang Guixia, 38 years old, in her home for explaining the facts about Falun Dafa to people. She has been detained at the first branch of the third female squad in the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp for over a year. In order to protest the illegal imprisonment and persecution, she has been on hunger strikes many times. The police forcefully fed her, sometimes twice a day and shamelessly asked her family to pay 4000 Yuan in "meal fees." They tortured her by making her squat in a small cell, suspending her by her arms, sitting on an iron chair for prolonged periods of time, and so on. Currently, she is very weak and suffering. We hope that the international society will help to rescue her.

[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] The Authorities Fabricate and Spread Rumors About a Self-Immolation Plan

Recently, the authorities spread a rumor that Falun Dafa practitioners in a certain area in Heilongjiang were planning to stage a self-immolation. Using this as justification, the police illegally arrested many practitioners. The cultivation of Falun Dafa is dignified. Zhuan Falun, the complete teachings of Falun Dafa, explicitly points out, "For practitioners, we have set the strict requirement that they cannot kill lives." It is not possible for Falun Dafa practitioners to commit suicide or self-immolate. This rumor should make people once again see clearly another lie fabricated by the evil force in order to continue its persecution.

[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Authorities Attempt to Obstruct the Investigations of the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong"

Recently, the residential offices in Changchun City passed a document from the city to all the residential committees stating: Closely monitor anyone who might be from the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong and prohibit them from contacting the local Falun Gong practitioners in order to prevent the truth about the persecution from leaking out. This actually shows that the overseas practitioners are doing a good job. They hit the evil's weak spot. This also shows the dictator's extreme fear.

[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Li Xin Is Arrested in Taiyuan

In October 2001, Li Xin, 29 years old, from Harbin, was arrested in Beijing for appealing for Falun Gong and was detained at the Pinggu Detention Center in Beijing. The police brutally beat Li, burned him with cigarettes, and tortured him by making him hold the "riding an airplane" [the head is bent down until it cannot go down any further, while the hands are pulled up and held up to the highest point. The hips have to remain upright.] position for long periods of time. On May 16, 2002, the police arrested Li from his home and illegally sentenced him to two years in the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp. In order to protest the illegal detention, he went on hunger strikes several times. In January 2002, he developed numbness below his waist and appeared to be paralyzed. On February 26, 2002, he was able to escape from the camp. On September 16, 2002, he was arrested while distributing Dafa materials at Huabei Industrial Institute in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province. He was sent back to Harbin. We do not know his whereabouts. Three female practitioners Lu Yuexian, Wu Mei, and Ma Huanxi were arrested at the same time and have been illegally detained in the Taiyuan Detention Center.

[Shenyang, Liaoning Province] Police in the Second Prison of Dabei Prison Persecute Falun Dafa Practitioners

[Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province] Dr. Dong Wencheng Is Arrested and Detained at Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp

Dong Wencheng is a 35 year old physician. On February 11, 2002, the officials from a town government forcefully sent him to a brainwashing center for nearly 2 months. He was released after paying 2000 Yuan and the deeds to three homes. In 2002, he was arrested for going to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. After being transferred and tortured in five detention centers, he was finally detained in the Shuangcheng Detention Center. He went on a hunger strike to protest and was forcefully fed and tortured. He was only released when his physical condition deteriorated so much that his life was in danger. On April 16, 2002, he went to Beijing again to appeal and was arrested. He was sentenced to two years in a forced labor camp but was later released because his leg was broken in a fall and he became emaciated from the torture in the detention center. As soon as he recovered at home, they sent him back to Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp and he has been there ever since.

[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Pan Li Is Arrested

On June 8, 2002, the police from Xiangyang Police Branch of Jiamusi Police Department illegally arrested Pan Li, 49 years old, for explaining the facts about Falun Dafa. Currently, she is being detained at Xigemu Forced Labor Camp in Jiamusi City.

He was shouting, "Falun Gong is good" while being beaten by the police. Zhao was severely injured from the police brutality and was sent to the Xinmin City Detention Center. We do not know his whereabouts.

Xia Liqing, male, over 60 years old, was arrested by the police from Zhangtun Village for distributing Falun Dafa materials. The person who reported him to the authorities was rewarded with 500 Yuan. Xia was sentenced to two and half years in the Zhangshi Forced Labor Camp in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province.

[Dingan County, Hainan Province] Facts About the Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioners

[Wangdu County, Hebei Province] Police Cruelly Torture Falun Dafa Practitioner Zu Lanzhen

In August 2002, Zu Lanzhen, 62 years old, was arrested and sent to a detention center. The police from Xianghe Police Station in Jia Village tortured her. They burned her palms, mouth, and tongue with cigarettes and she immediately developed egg-sized blisters on her palms. They stuck toothpicks nearly 1 centimeter deep into her fingernails and her hands were covered in blood. They used a cigarette lighter to burn her fingers until the lighter ran out of fuel. Other practitioners in the same cell witnessed the torture. Zu could not eat or sleep. The practitioners went on a hunger strike in order to protest the torture of Zu. The police might have been afraid as they started to treat Zu's wounds and asked the other practitioners to resume eating.

[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Liu Limin Is Cruelly Tortured in the Yangyuan Brainwashing Center in Wuchang District

[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] The Police at Fushun Forced Labor Camp Barbarically Torture Falun Dafa Practitioners

From April to June 2002, the authorities at Fushun Forced Labor Camp set up a building in rural Zhangdang in which Falun Dafa practitioners were tortured. Liu Zhigang, the Vice Director of the camp led Wu Wei, the head of the squad, in torturing practitioners in many different ways. He ordered the guards to beat, punch, kick, and shock the practitioners. Almost every day, the practitioners' cries of pain could be heard. All Dafa practitioners that remained firm were sent to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp.

Police officers Ceng Qiuyan and Chen Linghua (telephone: 86-413-2431917) incited collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] to beat the practitioners. Female practitioners were placed in small cells without windows, and they would live, and use the toilet in the same cell. The smell in the cell was intolerable. The practitioners were beaten and shocked while in these cells. Male guards monitor the female practitioners; which is a serious violation of human rights.
