Follow-up on the Death of Dafa Practitioner Dong Buyun in Linyi City, Shandong Province
March 24, 2003
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Dong Buyun, female, around 38 years of age, was a teacher at Xiyanchi Street Elementary School in Lanshan District, Linyi City, Shandong Province. After July 20, 1999, in order to appeal for Dafa, Dong Buyun and her brother Dong Jin went to Beijing to appeal. They validated Dafa on the streets for over 20 days and were forcibly taken back by people from their work unit.
Upon their return, the people from the "610 Office" locked Dong Buyun in the Xiyanchi Street Elementary School and didn't allow her to go home. They forced her to write a "guarantee" statement. With no other choice, Dong Buyun resigned from her post. After her death, the school officials suppressed the news and didn't allow anyone to look at the scene. They claimed that Dong committed suicide by jumping off a building.
Dong Jin is Dong Buyun's brother and also a Dafa practitioner, around 30 years old and an employee of the Hongri Corporation. After his sister died, people from the "610 Office" continued their persecution of Dong's family.
After July 20, 1999, the Linyi City "610 Office" illegally arrested Dong Jin many times and restricted his personal freedom. They sent him to a brainwashing center and later detained him in Linyi City Party's School Brainwashing Center in the summer of 2001. They tortured him and again sent him to the Linyi City Brainwashing Center in early 2002 to try to force him to give up his belief in Dafa.
In April 2001, the "610 Office" forced Dong's father to curse Master and Dafa at a "reform and denouncing meeting" intended to cover up their crimes for Dong Buyun's death, but they didn't expect that Dong Jin's father, a rational and conscientious man, an ordinary man who had just lost his beloved daughter while his son is suffering persecution, would condemn them publicly.
Dong Jin is currently being persecuted severely by the "610 Office" and suffering greatly, possibly on the verge of a mental collapse. We hope that people all over the world will do their best to help him and the other imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners in China.
