Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhu Yajun from Chongzhou City, Sichuan Province is 62 years old. Over the past seven years, Mr. Zhu's family was constantly harassed and monitored by Chongzhou municipal government officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The huge mental pressure Mr. Zhu suffered harmed his health. Mr. Zhu and his wife were also refused retirement pension. The director of the residents' committee, Hu Yuqing and others told Mr. Zhu that only when he signed a guarantee statement to renounce Falun Dafa would they give him the basic living expenses. Mr. Zhu firmly refused.
In April 2004, Hu Yuqing and others from Zhengdong Street resident committee seized Mr. Zhu and took him to the town hall. Several dozen people from Politics Committee, Police Station and Resident Committee surrounded him and tried to force him to sign the guarantee statement, took pictures and listed Mr. Zhu on the "blacklist." The local police forced Mr. Zhu to report to them every day and sign his name each time in order to prevent him from going to Beijing to appeal.
At 12 a.m. on January 23rd, 2001 (Chinese New Year Eve), seven people from the police station broke into Mr. Zhu's home and took Mr. Zhu to Chengdong Police Station and forced him to sign his name. They forced Mr. Zhu's daughter to represent him and sign a "guarantee statement" on his behalf, and only then did they release him.
At the end of September 2002, when Mr. Zhu distributed leaflets exposing the persecution in the countryside, he was reported to the authorities. Two policemen from Chengdong Police Station arrested and searched Mr. Zhu. He was imprisoned for 15 days and was fined 100 yuan1.
In September 2004, when Mr. Zhu was explaining the facts about Falun Dafa at a food market, plainclothes officers from Chengxi Police Station seized Mr. Zhu and detained him for seven days.
In August 2005, when Mr. Zhu and a fellow practitioner went to the countryside to teach the Falun Gong exercises, five policemen from Chengxi Police Station arrested Mr. Zhu and interrogated him for more than two hours. Mr. Zhu refused to cooperate and after three hours, they finally released him.
