13 Falun Gong Practitioners from Huili County Unlawfully Arrested
(Minghui.org) Since May 2012, the 610 Office, the CCP Political and Legal Committee, and the police department in Huili County, Liangshanzhou, Sichuan Province, have pressured the towns, villages and communities to participate in arresting Falun Gong practitioners. Within a month, they have illegally arrested 13.
The domestic security officers Wang Zifa and Zhuang Mingqing and officer Duan Youhua from the Hongqi Police Station broke into Mr. Zhang Zhengsheng's home on the afternoon of May 8. They confiscated any items they thought were valuable and took his personal belongings. The police forced his family members to disclose where Mr. Zhang worked, then went there and handcuffed and arrested him. Currently he is being held at the detention center. The police said they would get him sentenced to forced labor.
A group of thugs from the domestic security team broke into the home of 70-year-old Ms. Wu Congmei on May 29 at about 9:00 a.m. Ms. Wu was at home taking care of her two grandsons. The police took her Falun Dafa books and informational flyers and posters about Falun Dafa. Then they arrested her and took her to the detention center. The domestic security police said that they would arrange to have her sentenced to prison.
Domestic security officers Wang Zifa, Zhuang Mingqing, Qin Shijun, and Huang Liping arrested Ms. Dong Xiuqiong. They ransacked her home and confiscated several items. In order to get in, the police forced some strangers to knock on the door. When Ms. Dong opened the door, Wang Zifa and Zhuang Mingqing barged on in and pushed Ms. Dong down onto the coffee table. They then arrested her and took her to the police department. They later took her to the hospital for a physical. On the way there, they handcuffed her, and afterwards, they took her to the detention center. The first detention center refused to accept her, so they took her to another detention center and forced them to accept her. When Ms. Dong shouted, “Falun Dafa is good,” officer Zhuang Mingqing kicked her in the abdomen. Ms. Dong Xiuqiong was released on the evening of June 1 at around 7:00 p.m.
On June 6 at around 10:00 a.m., eight older practitioners (Jiang Deyuan, Zhang Zhengyou, Chen Youhui, Zhang Yichun, Zhang Guocai, Lu Haixia, Li Fuzhen, and Fu Shukun) were studying Zhuan Falun at Jiang Deyuan's home. Suddenly, Wang Zifa and Zhuang Mingqing from the domestic security team and others from the Guangchang Community Committee and Chengnan Police Station arrested them all. The police then ransacked each of their homes. They also handcuffed Jiang Deyuan, Zhang Guocai, and Zhang Yichun. The 70-year-old couple, Li Fuzhen and Fu Shukun, was released that afternoon, but the rest were unlawfully held at the detention center. On June 21, the police department sentenced all six detained practitioners to forced labor, with the shortest term being 15 months. In the afternoon, Zhang Guocai, Lu Haixia, and Zhang Zhengyou were sentenced to serve their terms outside prison and released. Currently, Jiang Deyuan, Zhang Zhengyou, Cheng Youhui, and Zhang Yichun are still being held in the detention center.
On June 19 at approximately 8:00 a.m., six people from Huili County 610 Office, domestic security team, the Chengbei Police Station, and the local community committee broke into to home of Mr. Yang Shuzhong to arrest him. He shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” The police covered his mouth.
At the same time, the Huili County 610 Office, Hongqi Police Station, domestic security police, and personnel from Nange Town and Huanghu Village arrested Ms. Jiang Zhihui, who was eating at home. The police took her and practitioner Yang Shuzhong to the brainwashing center in Xining, Xichang.
