Wuwen City Practitioner Li Juhua Sentenced to Forced Labor for a Third Time
(Clearwisdom.net) At approximately 10:00 a.m. on August 19, 2009, Hu Shuzhi, chief of the 610 Office of the Huangpo District in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, and a dozen men went to Ms. Li Juhua's home, took her away, and illegally detained her for almost 50 days. During this time, they gave no information to her family as to her whereabouts.
After Ms. Li's arrest, her family members were very worried for her safety and searched for her in vain. When they visited Hu at the 610 Office, not only did Hu refuse to divulge Ms. Li's whereabouts, he threatened her family members.
On the morning of October 1, Ms. Li's family suddenly received a phone call from their community council, informing them that Ms. Li has been sentenced to imprisonment in a labor camp for 18 months. The infuriated family members went to the 610 Office to demand an explanation, but because it was a national holiday, they did not obtain a reply.
On the morning of October 9, Li Juhua's family members once again demanded that Hu release Ms. Li. Hu continued his threatening ways and shouted at them. When he tried to push Ms. Li's sister out by force, Ms. Li's family members joined together and resisted his thuggish behavior. Under their persistent questioning, Hu finally divulged that Ms. Li has been imprisoned in the Sixth Team of the Hewan Forced Labor Camp in Wuhan City.
Li Junhua has already been imprisoned for over two months. Even though her family members have visited Hewan three times, not to mention countless visits to the 610 Office and Public Security Bureau, they have not been able to see her at all. They have also been unable to obtain any information about her or any details of what she has been subjected to. Left in the dark about her, her family members are constantly worried about her safety.
For her faith in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Li Juhua has suffered countless incidents of persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). In the past ten years, she has been detained twice, sentenced to imprisonment in a labor camp three times, and lost her freedom for a total of four years. Her home was broken into twice by the CCP and her family has endured harassment and numerous threats.
Since becoming the head of the local 610 Office, Hu Shuzhi has committed many heinous crimes against Falun Gong practitioners, including sentencing them to labor in a labor camp, abduction, imprisonment, sending them to brainwashing centers, breaking into their homes, forcing them to write the "Three Guarantees," threatening to fire practitioners' children from their jobs, threatening to stop paying pensions to the elderly, ordering his henchmen to harass practitioners at home, and extorting practitioners for money. He has utilized a myriad of despicable and cruel methods to torture Dafa disciples, which has resulted in the families of Peng Shimin, Li Juhua, and many other practitioners being broken or having to be live in exile.
