Cousins Ms. Cai Junxia and Ms. Chuai Cuijun Are Given Heavy Sentences, Their Whole Family Persecuted Repeatedly

On April 10th, Ms. Cai Junxia's family received a written judgement from Tangshan City Middle Court in Qianxi County, Hebei Province, that upheld the original judgement and sentenced her to four years of imprisonment. The written judgement was dated March 5th. This is the second member of this family subjected to a heavy sentence. Over a year ago, Ms. Chuai Cuijun was sentenced to five years.

Ms. Chuai Cuijun and Ms. Cai Junxia are cousins. They married, respectively, Chuai Zhiwu and Chuai Zhigang, two brothers related to Ms. Chuai.

The boy in the picture is Chuai Fulin, who is now nine and half years old. The picture was taken about eight years ago and is the only one of him with his mother, Cai Junxia. Chuai Cuijun was sentenced to five years and is now in Shijiazhuang City Women's Prison. She is forced to do extra-heavy hard labour every day, for over 10 hours per day.

This little girl is Zhuai Yulin, who has been separated from her mother for almost two years.

In the past few years, Ms. Cai Junxia's family has been searched and their property confiscated five times. Family members have been arrested six times and five of them were imprisoned. Ms. Cai and Ms. Chuai Cuijun themselves were persecuted even more frequently. They have now been sentenced to four and five years of imprisonment respectively and are still imprisoned. The grocery store they had been working hard to manage in the past years had to close in the last month because there was no one to take care it.

In 2003, Cai Junxia and Chuai Cuijun went to the county town to run a business. The extended family of nine (two small families with their parents-in-law) moved to the county town from Michengzhuang Village, Xinzhuangzi Township, Qianxi County. Starting from running a stall in a farmer's market, they worked hard and later rented a shop and ran a grocery store. During that time, besides running the business, the capable sisters also had to take care of the elderly and children in the family. Although the work was hard, as practitioners, they obtained the wisdom and strength from their faith in the universal law of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance." No difficulty seemed to be able to defeat them. From taking care of elderly parents and young children to sorting out business affairs, they organized everything in good order and the whole family had a happy and harmonious life.

In May 2006, Ms. Chuai Cuijun and several other practitioners were forcibly taken away when they were distributing Falun Gong leaflets exposing the persecution. In Qianxi County Detention Centre, they were put in handcuffs and foot shackles and force fed highly concentrated salt water. With insufficient proof, the members of the Communist Party in Qianxi County controlled the puppet court to convene four court sessions from October 2006 to January 2007. In the end, threatened by the 610 Office1, the court sentenced Chuai Cuijun to five years and sent her to Shijiazhuang Women's Prison, where the guards did not allow her to sleep for several days and nights, deceived her, etc. The guards claim that she has been "transformed2," force her to make clothing from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and force her to do extra hard labour for over ten hours a day. The guards often swear at her, force her to recite the prison rules, deduct her points, and threaten to not allow her family to visit.

Ms. Cai Junxia was forcibly taken away this time on July 18th, 2007. At about 11:00 p.m. that day, Zhu Zhengang, the head of Qianxi County National Security Group, and Zhang Yinbo, the head of Chengguan Police Station in Qianxi County, with around ten policemen in several police vehicles, surrounded Ms. Cai's home. They jumped over the wall and took away a computer, a printer, Falun Gong books, and some other items. They forcibly took away Cai Junxia and her mother-in-law. That same night, Zhang Yinbo and a group of policemen went to Jinchangyu Mine and forcibly took away Chuai Zhiwu, who was working in the mine. The house became a shambles and only her father-in-law, who has been suffering with the effects of cerebral thrombosis for many years, and three young children were left at home. (Eight days later, Zhang Yinbo, originally quite healthy, developed a sudden fatal disease and died. )

On January 7th, 2008, the Communist Party-controlled Qianxi County Court sentenced Ms. Cai Junxia, who had been already been detained for almost six months, to up to four years of imprisonment. That sentence was confirmed on March 10th.
