Print  E-mail 

 

Victim:

Li Zhongwen, male, 17, Jingjing County, Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province

Li Zhongwen’s Mother: Bai Yuzhi, 40, worked in the Jinxing County Industry and Business Council,

Li Zhongwen’s Father: Li Dongliang.

 

Perpetrators:

Police Department, Jingjing County, Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province

 

A Brief Report of the Incident:

On July 20, 1999, when Li Zhongwen was 14 years old, his mother, Bai Yuzhi, was illegally arrested and then sentenced to three years of forced labor for practicing Falun Gong.  In 2000, his father, Li Dongliang, was also illegally sentenced to three years of forced labor for practicing Falun Gong. Li Zhongwen, also a Falun Gong practitioner, had to live by himself ever since. 

 

The police ransacked Zhongwen’s home several times. For over two years, he has not had the chance to see his parents. Once when Zhongwen went to visit his father, the guards demanded that he first write a letter of guarantee to give up his practice of Falun Gong. Zhongwen left with tears in his eyes.

 

Around May 2002, Zhongwen was arrested by the Jingxing police and put into a brainwashing class. In the brainwashing class, many physical and mental abuses were exerted to force Zhongwen to give up his belief in Falun Gong.  He was also forced to discontinue his studies in school.
