(Minghui.org) Ms. Wang Zhongling, 51, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Nongan County, Jilin Province, was illegally arrested on the afternoon of May 15, 2014 when she was telling others the facts about Falun Gong at Ouya Square. Ms. Wang's husband who had a stroke, is alone and cannot take care of himself.
Ms. Wang was a teacher at Kaian Town Middle School in Nongan County. She started to practice Falun Gong in 1997 and benefited greatly. After the Chinese Communist Party launched the persecution in 1999, Ms. Wang lost her job, and was arrested and tortured.
In 1999, the officials of Kaian Town Middle School forced a dozen teachers who practiced Falun Gong, including Ms. Wang, to sign a guarantee letter to promise "not to practice Falun Gong and not to appeal for Falun Gong." In October, the town governors and school officials took their IDs and gave them to the police.
In February 2000, Ms. Wang was arrested at Tiananmen Square when she went to Beijing to appeal. At Jilin Province Liaison Office in Beijing, they took the only money she had, 700 yuan. She was detained at the Nongan County Detention Center for three months. She was tortured cruelly, including the "flying airplane," where she was forced to bend over at a 90-degree angle with her arms lifted up behind her back, and forced to stand against a wall with her arms and legs outstretched. She was extorted 2000 yuan for food when she was released.
After she was released, the school officials did not allow her to return to teaching and stopped her salary. They ordered several colleagues to monitor her.
Ms. Wang went to Beijing again to appeal on October 30, 2000. She shouted "Falun Dafa is good" on Tiananmen Square. She was arrested again and sentenced to one year of forced labor. While she was in the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City, guards shocked her with electric batons. She had to work 12 hours a day and only earned a "salary" of 6 yuan per month. Because she refused to quit Falun Gong by the end of the three-month sentence, her sentence was extended another two months.
At the end of 2001, Nongan County Education Bureau issued an order that all teachers had to sign a guarantee letter to promise not to practice Falun Gong. Anyone who refused to do so would be fired. Ms. Wang lost her job, and she was forced to do labor work in different places to make a living.
On August 11, 2012, Chen Yiwu, another teacher from Kaian Town Middle School, came to Ms. Wang's home and tried to trick her and take her to a brainwashing center. Ms. Wang was forced to leave her hometown for more than three months. While she was gone, police stayed around her home for several days. When she returned home at the end of 2002, the police knocked on her door the very next day.
On the evening of October 10, 2006, Ms. Wang was arrested by plainclothes police when she was posting posters about the truth of Falun Gong and the persecution. She was taken to the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp again and sentenced to two years. When the sentence ended, they extended the detention for another 50 days.
On May 15, 2014, Ms. Wang Zhongling and Ms. Guo Hongxia were arrested when they were telling others about Falun Gong at Ouya Square. Ms. Guo was once arrested in January 2010 for telling people the facts about Falun Gong and was detained at the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp.
Ms. Wang's husband who had a stroke, relies on her for everything. Now his wife has been arrested and he is left alone at home.
