Several Falun Gong Practitioners Detained in Yuanbaoshan District, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region

Several Falun Gong practitioners from the Yuanbaoshan District in Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, were arrested in mid-April 2012. They have been detained for over a month. The Yuanbaoshan District authorities are planning to persecute them further.

Practitioners Ms. Wang Fenghuan and Ms. Cui Cuixia Arrested

Ms. Wang Fenghuan and Ms. Cui Cuixia were arrested by a police officer under orders from the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) on the afternoon of April 13th, 2012, while they were explaining the facts about Falun Gong to people. Around the same time, police officers broke into and ransacked Ms. Cui's home. Later, deputy director of Bajia Village Sun Cai and officers from the local police station went to Ms. Wang's home and confiscated her belongings, including many Falun Gong books and informational materials, a computer, a printer, printing paper, a DVD player, and cash, among many other items. Since it is now spring and the farming season has begun, the absence of these two women due to the arrest has caused great hardship for their families.

Ms. Li Xiurong Followed and Arrested

On the night of April 14th, 2012, Ms. Li Xiurong, a 40-year-old practitioner from Wofosi Village, Pingzhuang Town, Yuanbaoshan District, was reported to the authorities for distributing materials about Falun Gong. She was followed by officers from the Xilutian Police Station, who conspired with the Domestic Security Division of the Yuanbaoshan District Police Department to ransack Ms. Li's home and arrest her that night. Ms. Li is being held in the Pingzhuang Town Detention Centre in the Yuanbaoshan District.

Ms. Li Xiurong's Mother, Ms. Yue Shuxia, Arrested

Ms. Li Xiurong's mother, Ms. Yue Shuxia, was arrested on the morning of April 15th, 2012. Before practising Falun Gong, Ms. Yue was known to be conceited, competitive, and short-tempered, and she had many health problems. But after taking up the practice, Ms. Yue changed completely. She now conducts herself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and focuses on being an ethical person. She underwent dramatic mental and physical changes and now considers others first and gets along with others very well, but she has been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party for her righteous faith. Ms. Yue is currently detained in the Pingzhuang Town Detention Centre in the Yuanbaoshan District.

Ms. Wang Xiufang and Other Practitioners Arrested

On April 21st, 2012, four Falun Gong practitioners from Wujia Town in the Yuanbaoshan District—Ms. Wang Xiufang, Ms. Liu Yumei, Ms. Yang Jiahua, and Ms. Li Yuqin—were arrested by the Domestic Security Division of the Jinshan Town Police Department for handing out Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs [Shen Yun performance, a world-class traditional Chinese cultural show.] in Louzidian Town. They were detained in the Jinshan Town Detention Centre. Ms. Liu has since been released.

Ms. Wang was previously a teacher, but she was fired because of her belief. She has been imprisoned and tortured many times, and her husband divorced her due to the pressure of the persecution. Following the first arrest in 2001, Ms. Wang was detained in the Tumuji Forced Labour Camp. She was only released after beginning a hunger strike. On April 18th, 2008, Ms. Wang was sent to the Hohhot City Women's Prison. On April 18th, 2010, she was transferred to the Chifeng City Brainwashing Centre.

Many people have become healthy and virtuous after practising Falun Gong, Their families and the society at large have also benefited from their taking up the practice. Falun Gong practitioners simply wish to pass along the information that Falun Gong is good, so that more people could benefit from the practice. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is evil in nature, and it opposes the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The CCP arrests and suppresses good people, treating them with extremely cruel and inhumane methods.
