Print  E-mail 


Li Zhongwen (male) was a 17-year-old teenager when this report was written. He and his parents, Mr. Li Dongliang and Ms. Bai Yuzhi, lived at Jingxing County, Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province. His mother worked in the Jingxing County Industry and Business Council.


On July 20, 1999, when Li Zhongwen was 14 years old, his mother, Bai Yuzhi, was illegally arrested and 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, has had to live by himself ever since. The police have ransacked Zhongwen’s home several times. He has not seen his parents in over two years. Once when Zhongwen went to visit his father, the guards demanded that he first write a letter renouncing Falun Gong. Zhongwen left with tears in his eyes.


In May 2002, the Jingxing police arrested Zhongwen and put him in a forced brainwashing center. In the brainwashing center, much physical and mental abuse was exerted to force Zhongwen to give up his belief in Falun Gong. He was also expelled from school.
