On January 8th, 2007, Falun Gong practitioners Wang Xiaohong and Yang Zhengming went to Cangxi County to inform people about the persecution of Falun Gong and dispel the state propaganda attacking the practice. They were arrested by the police who had been tracking them and were sent to the Cangxi County Police Station. The National Security police and officers from the Bazhong City Police Station interrogated the two practitioners day and night. They took their mobile phones, over 10,000 yuan1 in cash, and their leaflets exposing the persecution. On May 22nd, the Cangxi County Court held a secret trial. The Court sentenced Wang Xiaohong to three and a half years in prison and Yang Zhengming to five and a half years.
During the proceedings, the police also tried various other persecution methods. Wang and Yang were threatened, deceived, harassed, and handcuffed. The police also kicked and beat the two practitioners with electric batons. Yang's whole body was purple, and blood showed up in his urine. The police also detained them in a cell and then searched their houses. They confiscated one PC, a printer, a VCD player, and Falun Gong books. They held the practitioners in Beimengou Detention Centre in Cangxi County and strictly monitored them. They also forbid them from seeing their families for five months.
Cangxi County is one of the counties where the persecution of Falun Gong is most severe. Many people there do not understand the truth and are afraid to learn the true situation due to the Party's lies. The police and government officials seem very ruthless, and the persecution there has been on-going. Many Falun Gong practitioners have been repeatedly arrested, tortured, sentenced to prison, sent to brainwashing centres, and monitored.
We hope local practitioners can expose the evil goings-on in a timely manner, save our fellow practitioners, and inform people about the truth of Falun Gong.
Those responsible for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners:
Head Prosecutor He Pengde
Prosecutor Zhang Guangyu
Chief Judge of the People's Court Gao Min
Judge Yang Xingwen
Clerk Liu Qing
