Huang Chunlin, a Ten-Year-Old, Deprived of Schooling, and Forced into Homelessness  
Print  E-mail 

 

Huang Chunlin, a ten-year-old boy and resident of Tieling City, Liaoning Province, is now forced to share a life of homelessness with his mother, Ms. Jin Hongyu. Because she went to Beijing to appeal to the government to stop persecuting Falun Gong, Ms. Jin was detained four times by the Xicheng District Police Department in Beijing and the Yinzhou District Police Department in Tieling City. She was sentenced to one year of forced labor and then asked to pay a “fine” of 5,000 yuan to be allowed to serve her term outside the camp. In 1999, when Chunlin was six, his mother, aunt, and grandmother were all arrested for their practice of Falun Gong, leaving no one to take care of him or  his grandfather who was suffering from a serious illness. They had a very hard life.

 

In February 2002, Ma, the Chief of the Chaihe Street Police Station, Yingzhou District, Tieling City, along with several policemen, went to the home of Ms. Jin and her relatives to harass them. On several occasions they also drove away customers from the restaurant Ms. Jin owned. Then, without any permit, the police searched and closed the restaurant. As a result, Ms. Jin had to leave home to avoid further persecution, taking Chunlin with her. They have been destitute ever since then, and their hard life has become even harder.

 

In May 2002, policemen Yu Dehai, Sun Lizhong, and Yang Dongsheng, from the Yinzhou District Police Department in Tieling City, found and arrested young Chunlin. They interrogated him and tried to find out where his mother was, but he refused to tell them. Sun Lizhong then picked him up by the throat and threatened, “I won’t put you down if you refuse to talk. Don’t think I can’t deal with you because you are just a kid. You better speak, or I'll jail you here.” Yu Dehai told Chunlin, “If you tell us where your mother and aunt are right way, we assure you we won’t arrest them. But if you do not tell us we'll beat them if we capture them.” The police didn't allow the boy to sleep at night. Chunlin was in a state of utter exhaustion after three days of abuse.

 

Later, his father's sister came to take him home to live with her. She registered him for school, but policemen Sun Lizhong and Yang Dongsheng continued to persecute him. They went to the school and followed him home every day. Meanwhile, they tapped his aunt's telephone. Eventually the school, under pressure from the police, refused to let Chunlin come to class. Unable to bear the pressure, his aunt became ill, and other relatives dared not take him in. Chunlin has now joined his mother, and they are both homeless and destitute.
