Falun Gong practitioner Yang Xuehua in Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province was arrested and tortured by police on September 11th, 2006. His whereabouts were unknown for a while. Recently, it is reported that Yang Xuehua's whole body is paralysed and he suffered a mental collapse from the torture. The police had to send him to Zhuozhou City Hospital for emergency treatment and spent more than 60,000 yuan1 for his care.
The police officers of the National Security Team in Zhuozhou City have been harassing and extorting money from Falun Gong practitioners and their families by all kinds of methods.
On October 26th, 2006, the police officers of Baoding City and Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province arrested Falun Gong practitioner Li Lusheng from Matou Township and detained him for 13 days for loaning his car to the family members of another practitioner who had been detained at Balizhuang Labour Camp in Baoding City. The police didn't release Li Lusheng until they had extorted 7,000 yuan from his family members.
Recently, the police officers from Zhuozhou City National Security Team went to find practitioner Ms. Wang Huilan, claiming that Ms. Wang was released too soon last time after five days of detention, without permission from the National Security Team, and they were investigating this matter. This is another tactic the police officers use to extort money.
