(Minghui.org) Mayor Mu Weimin and Deputy Mayor He Xuemin of Nanyang City, Henan Province, were out together in a car on the evening of October 19, 2012. As they were driving down the Nanyang Highway, their car collided with a truck and became trapped under it. The mayor's intestines were severed and spilled out of his body, and the deputy mayor's head was injured. They are hospitalized in the Henan Province No.1 People's Hospital.

Mayor Mu and Deputy Mayor He have proactively followed Jiang Zemin's directive to brutally persecute Falun Gong since they took office. They have never stopped persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Especially prior to the “Nationwide Farmers' Sports Meet” held in Nanyang in mid September 2012, they once again set up a brainwashing center at the Oil Field Technical School. They arrested practitioners from Nanyang, Tanghe, and the Oil Field and held them in the brainwashing center. Ms. Hu Baohui from the Oil Field held an eight-day hunger strike to protest the persecution. She is on the verge of death. Ms. Fan Jinping, Ms. Liang Yuzhi, Ms. Hu Guoyun, and Ms. Han Guozhen from Nanyang; Ms. He Shangyun from Henan Oil Field; and Mr. Luo Jiuhe and Ms. Shi Xiuzhi from Tanghe are still detained for refusing to renouncing their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Just after the conclusion of the sports meet, they ordered police stations, the 610 Office, neighborhood committees, and village committees in 15 counties, cities and districts in Nanyang to continue harassing practitioners both at home and at their workplaces.

People worldwide acknowledge that good will be rewarded and evil will meet with retribution. According to incomplete statistics, 43 people have died as a result of their direct participation in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners in Nanyang, including former Nanyang Party head Huang Xingwei. We once again advise the officials of different levels who are still participating in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners: Stop persecuting these kind people, end this horrific tragedy that should not have happened, and choose a wonderful future for yourself and your future generations.
