Ms. Yang Lijun, 64 years old, is a paediatrician. She is not only a good doctor, but also known by friends and neighbours to be a very nice person. She worked at the Tongji Hospital in Bayuquan District. Later she opened her own clinic at Haixing, Bayuquan District. Before she practised Falun Gong, she suffered from many illnesses. She became healthier after she practised Falun Gong. She treats her patients like her relatives and charges the lowest fees. For people who have no money or for low-income seniors, she will reduce her fee or treat them for free.
In the past ten years, Ms. Yang and her relatives have suffered many instances of severe persecution.
In October 1999, Yang Lijun was arrested. She was released after over twenty days detention at the Bayuquan District Detention Centre.
Later, police from the Bayuquan District National Security Division and Haixing Police Station often harassed her. In 2004 she was sent to Yingkou Brainwashing Centre. Although her relatives tried their best to stop it, she was still sent to be brainwashed. Dr. Yang and her fellow practitioners spoke out for justice for Falun Gong to personnel in the brainwashing centre. Many of them came to understand that Falun Gong is innocent and that this persecution is illegal. The brainwashing session was then discontinued.
Around 10 o'clock in the evening on September 23rd, 2009, police from the Bayuquan District National Security Division ransacked her home and arrested her. She was later released due to a severe heart problem and high blood pressure. But police asked Yang Lijun and her relatives to sign the paper of release for medical reasons, and threatened that she could not leave the city and needed to co-operate with the investigation.
Around the time of the New Year of 2010, Cao Ning, a procurator of Bayuquan District Procuratorate, called her and demanded that she come to the Bayuquan District Procuratorate to verify information for them. On the phone, he said they would not arrest her, but that he just wanted to verify her information.
Later a relative of Yang Lijun went to the Procuratorate to find out more. They said that they wanted to verify information with her regarding the Bayuquan District National Security Division's arrest of Falun Gong practitioners on the evening of September 23rd, 2009. They wanted to find out whether Yang Lijun was qualified for exemption for medical reasons. They would send police to arrest her if she did not come to the Procuratorate.
Around January 10th, 2010, three policemen from the Bayuquan District National Security Division, including one whose family name is Li, went to Ms. Yang's home again. They threatened her relatives to find her right away. Otherwise, they said they would issue a warrant for her arrest on-line.
Situation of Other Practitioners
The following practitioners were arrested on the evening of September 23rd, 2009: Yu Zhihong and her son Wang Zhiyuan; Dong Bing and his father and brother who don't practise Falun Gong (they were released one month later); Shen Guanghai and his wife Teng Wenmin; Bi Shijun and his wife Sun Li.
The following male practitioners are still detained at the Bayuquan District Detention Centre: Wang Shenlun (46 years old), Wang Shenlun's son Wang Zhiyuan (19 years old), Dong Bing (34 years old), Shen Guanghai (37 years old), Bi Shijun (around 40 years old).
The following female practitioners are still detained at the Bayuquan District Detention Centre: Yao Qiang (61 years old), Wang Shenlun's wife Yu Zhihong (45 years old), Teng Wenmin (30 years old), Sun Li (over 30 years old).
Wang Shenlun was arrested on June 10th, 2009 by the Bayuquan District National Security Division, and his home was ransacked. Later the Procuratorate, court and police rigged the whole thing and secretly sentenced him to a five-year jail term. Wang Shenlun wanted to appeal, and his family members hired a lawyer for him. But Yingkou Intermediate Court rejected the appeal.
Bayuquan District National Security Division
Although the Bayuquan District National Security Division belongs to the Police Bureau, the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) is directly in charge of them. It hence becomes a tool to persecute Falun Gong. Since the persecution, there have been several team leaders. Qin Shilong has been sentenced to jail due to corruption. During the search, the floor of his home was removed so they could look underneath. Wang Yousheng was transferred to the Payuquan Detention Centre as political head. Wang Hongkui is the current team leader. He was deputy team leader when Wang Yousheng was team leader.
The team leaders and policemen participated in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. They ransacked practitioners' homes and fined them unjustly. Many practitioners were arrested, fined and sent to labour camps and jails.
