Bank Fires Ms. Li Li for Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) The president of the Kangping County Agricultural Bank in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, used the order sent down from the president of the the provincial office of the bank to force all the Staff Representative Assembly members to support the decision to fire Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Li.
Shenyang City Agricultural Bank did the same thing. The fact that the Agricultural Banks of the province, the city, and the county went to so much effort in the firing of Ms. Li is strong evidence that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) policy to "ruin Falun Gong practitioners financially" is still in effect.
Ms. Li Arrested
Ms. Li was arrested by officers of the Shengli Police Station in Kangping County for telling people the facts about Falun Dafa. She was released after being held in the Shenyang City Detention Center for 15 days.
Ms. Li’s detention was unjust. But Wang Qin, president of the provincial Agricultural Bank, wanted to show that he was serious about "dealing with" practitioners. The president of the Kangping County Agricultural Bank, Xin Ying, prepared the documents used in firing Ms. Li and submitted them to the City Agricultural Bank.
Xin Ying talked with each and every member of the Staff Representative Assembly before the meeting and forced them to support her decision to fire Ms. Li. Most representatives did not agree, but Xin Ying ordered them to obey her. The same tactic was used at the City Agricultural Bank.
Being a Good Employee Means Nothing to the Authorities
Ms. Li worked hard and was very patient with customers. One customer remarked, “She is so nice that you would have thought that this was her own company.”
A lady dropped a 100 yuan bill in a slit at Ms. Li’s window without realizing it. It took Ms. Li about a month to locate her and return the money. She was very moved and said, “I must tell this to the president. In today's society 100 yuan is not a lot of money, but few people would do what Ms. Li did.”
Ms. Li was always honest. The company reimbursed its employees for what they paid on their heating bills, up to the amount covering an area of 100 square meters. But Ms. Li always asked for no more than the actual dimensions of her home. It was not a big deal, but in today’s China, few people would have been that honest.
Mr. Li Bing, Ms. Li’s husband, was fired by the Agricultural Bank in 2008 because he practiced Falun Dafa. Many staff members said, “That couple worked hard. The company should not have fired them. It was wrong to fire them both.” They spoke well of Ms. Li, saying, “She never over-charged for her heating bills and never tried to get her son admitted to college through improper means. It is impossible to find such a good person these days.”
Falun Dafa teaches people the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The Chinese communist regime persecutes Falun Gong by destroying practitioners’ reputations, harming them physically, and preventing them from making a living because it is afraid that the moral power of the practitioners could destroy the Party, because it rules by deceit and violence.
