Officials from Laishui County, Hebei Province Arrest Falun Gong Practitioners and Ransack Their Homes

On March 11th, 2008, police from the Tingzhen Police Station and Laishui County 610 Office1 arrested four Falun Gong practitioners in Gao Village and Dachitu Village. The police also ransacked their homes.

On that day at about 3:00 p.m., Laishui County 610 Office head Wang Fucai, Li Zhengong and several police officers from Shi Ting Town Police Station drove three police vehicles to Gao Village where they took away 70-year-old Ms. Yin Yuelan and elderly Ms. Wang Wenge.

Later, Wang Fucai and Li Zhengong went with others to Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Chang Zhengying's home in Gao Village. They smashed the door and pried open the lock. They confiscated a stereo worth over 300 yuan2. They also ransacked the home of Chang Zhenying's father-in-law. Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution of Falun Gong, Chang Zhenying's home has been ransacked about 20 times.

On March 11th, 2008 at around 6:00 p.m., Wang Fucai and Li Zhengong also ransacked Falun Gong practitioner Yang Xifang's home in Dachitu Village, Shi Ting Town. They stole some Falun Gong books and an MP4 player.

Prior to this, on February 27th, 2008, police officer Dai Chunjie from Laishui County Police Department and several officials from Laishui County, Mingyi Township government and Mingyi Police Station ransacked the homes of Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Liu Zhiqin in Dongjiazhuang Village, Mingyi Township, Laishui County; Ms. Zhang Shufang in West Mingyi Township, and Ms. Li Zilan in Dongguanzhong Village.

The police confiscated a mobile phone, a TV satellite receiver, a colour TV, a DVD player and some Falun Gong books from practitioner Zhang Shufang's home in West Mingyi Township. They ransacked Li Zilan's home while nobody was at home, and also ransacked Liu Zhiqin's home, saying they did so because she often went out.

Under the CCP's totalitarian rule, ordinary citizens cannot have a sense of safety. The police can arrest anyone they want. The so-called Constitution and laws are used to persecute people. The so-called "harmonious society" is only a façade used to deceive the people.

Note

1. "The 610 office" is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.

2. "Yuan" is the Chinese currency; 500 yuan is equal to the average monthly income of an urban worker in China.
