Practitioners in Beijing Illegally Detained for Over 8 Months after Suing Jiang Zemin
(Minghui.org) As more practitioners step forward to exercise their constitutional rights to demand justice, notably in suing former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Jiang Zemin, they run the risk of harassment and detention.
Ms. Kang Lijun from Huangcun Town in the Daxing District of Beijing was illegally arrested and had her home ransacked by the police on October 27, 2015. Ms. Li Guanglan from the Daxing District was arrested on November 6, 2015. They were both arrested for suing former CCP dictator Jiang Zemin for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.
The women have been held in the Daxing Detention Center for over eight months. Ms. Li Guanglan's case was returned to the police by the Daxing District Procuratorate for insufficient evidence. Ms. Kang Lijun was tried in the Daxing District Court on April 14, 2016, and is awaiting sentencing.
Ms. Kang and Ms. Li were both arrested, detained, and sentenced to forced labor several times prior because they practice Falun Gong.
Ms. Li Guanglan Arrested Many Times
Ms. Li was arrested and her home was ransacked by by Li Xuejun and 12 other domestic security police officers from the Daxing District in May 2011. She was first detained at the Qingyuan Police Station and then transferred to the Beijing Armed Police Guest House Brainwashing Center in Daxing for brainwashing. She was also threatened with sentencing if she did not give up her belief in Falun Gong. She was detained at the brainwashing center for 15 days.
Ms. Li was arrested again by Guanyinsi Police Station officers in Huangcun when she posted information about Falun Gong on May 4, 2013. She was detained for 10 days in the Tuanhe Detention Center in Daxing for “disturbing social order.”
Ms. Li was arrested by Qingyuan Road Police Station officers in Daxing on the evening of November 6, 2015, for filing a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin. The police also ransacked her home and took her computer, printer, and other personal belongings, all without a search warrant.
Ms. Li's family members pointed out it was illegal to ransack a citizen's home without a warrant. The police issued the search warrant the next day, but Ms. Li's family refused to sign it.
