On February 24th, two reporters from the Nordland Daily, the largest newspaper in northern Norway, interviewed eleven Chinese practitioners who have been recently accepted by the Norwegian government as refugees. Eight of them came from Thailand last month and three came from Japan half six months ago. After the Chinese Communist regime started to persecute Falun Gong, they were all subject to brutal torture and huge mental pressure.

At the place where the practitioners currently live, eleven practitioners from four families in turn recounted the benefits to mind and body that Falun Gong has brought to them, and the brutal persecution that they have experienced in China. The interviews went on for more than three hours.
Mr. Jianhui Li was a millionaire before the persecution. Li and his wife Ying Dai were brutally tortured for their belief in Falun Gong. They recounted some of the torture methods that they were subject to in jail. Because of extended electric shocks on her temples, Ying’s left eye became blind. Angela Wang talked about the time when her family could not return home due to repeated threats from the Chinese Communist regime.
Miaomiao told the reporters her heartbreaking story: Her husband was unlawfully arrested when he was taking their then three year old daughter to daycare. Her daughter was left on the street with no guardian and was traumatised. Mr. Zhenqi Tan and Chunhua Zhang said that they could not go back China to visit their relatives, who have been traumatised due to pressure and repeated threats from the communist regime because of the couple’s faith in Falun Gong.
The reporters were shocked and could not understand why the Chinese Communist Party feared Falun Gong so much. The practitioners explained explained the background to the persecution and gave the reporters leaflet and other materials, as well as the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party (an editorial by newspaper the Epoch Times).
On February 25th, the Nordland Daily published a front-page article which continued on pages four and five, detailing practitioners' stories.
