Falun Gong Practitioners in Yanji City, Jilin Province Sent to a Brainwashing Center
(Clearwisdom.net) Police officers from the Yanbian Domestic Security Division, along with personnel from the 610 Office in Yanji City, Jilin Province have illegally arrested Falun Gong practitioners and sent them to a brainwashing center to carry out “transformation”. Recently, practitioners Mr. Li Changhua, Mr. Li Changli, Mr. Liu Hua, and three others from the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in Yanji were arrested. Earlier, five or six Falun Gong practitioners were also detained in a brainwashing center.
Officers from Yanji abused and tortured Ms. Yang Lijuan and her family members to the point of breaking the family apart: Ms. Yang was injected with drugs in detention and became mentally incapacitated; her husband was sentenced to five years and incarcerated in Jilin Prison; both her parents were tortured to death; and her two sons are without family members to care for them.
Some of the local practitioners took the initiative to help her young children. Ms. Nan, an elderly Korean ethnic minority Falun Gong practitioner, took the initiative to care for Ms. Yang's 4-years-old son, Xiao Yi. Not long ago, Yanji police arrested her. After she was released, in order to avoid further harassment, she was forced to leave home and go from place to place. Someone saw her with Xiao Yi, wearing only thin clothing during cold weather.
Before her arrest, this kindhearted woman explained the facts about Falun Gong to the police with good intentions, and the police did not arrest her right away. However, the police ultimately came back later to arrest Ms. Nan.
