Police Chiefs in Shangdong Province Extort Millions of Yuan from Practitioners

Xue Lianchun (male), the political commissar of the Guan County Police Department of Shangdong Province, and Chen Yuezhi (female), the Division Chief of the Police Department, are exhausting all means to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners.

In the past several years, police officers headed by Xue Lianchun and Chen Yuezhi have been using the means of arrest, detention, extortion, sentencing and illegal forced labour to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. Many practitioners have been forced to leave home to avoid being arrested. More than ten practitioners have been sentenced to prison. Over two hundred practitioners have been sentenced to forced labour. Several thousand practitioners have been arrested and extorted out of large sums of money.

Throughout these years of persecution, Xue Lianchun and Chen Yuezhi have led police officers to steal belongings and funds from Falun Dafa practitioners' family members, forcing them to pay fines totalling millions of yuan1. They have never given a single receipt for money or items stolen. After the police arrested several practitioners, they extorted two to five thousand yuan from their families before releasing them. Some practitioners' family members were forced to give Chen Yuezhi "Three Gold" (referring to gold rings, gold earrings and gold bracelets), and also hand in 2,000 yuan in fines, without being given any receipts.

Note

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