Practitioner Ms. Cao Junfeng's Home Ransacked By Police For the Second Time--Sister's Whereabouts Unknown
(Clearwisdom.net) On July 9, 2008, personnel from the Weifang City Police Department in Shandong Province and the National Security Team used the excuse of the upcoming "Olympic Games" to rampantly arrest 104 Falun Gong practitioners. Ms. Cao Junfeng was arrested on July 9. When the police were illegally ransacking Ms. Cao Junfeng's home, her husband had a sudden heart attack, and had to be sent to the hospital emergency room. The illegal ransacking was then stopped. On September 7, the second day after the marriage of Ms. Cao Junfeng's daughter, the police once again barged into their residence. They took away Falun Gong books and informational materials. Ms. Cao Junfeng's sister, Ms. Cao Junping, has been detained for more than two weeks, and her whereabouts are unknown.
On August 10, 2008, after Ms. Cao Junfeng had been illegally incarcerated in the detention center for a month, she was sentenced to one year of forced labor. During this period of time, she was made to sit on a small stool for as long as several consecutive days. Both hands were handcuffed behind her back to a pipe. She couldn't move, and she was not given any food or water. After being tortured for a few days in this way, she showed the symptoms of a protruding spinal disc and blood in her stools.
September 6 was the day when Ms. Cao Junfeng's daughter got married. But because Ms. Cao persisted in her belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, she was thrown into jail and couldn't even attend the wedding ceremony of her only daughter. After her wedding, the daughter requested to see her mother. The police said, "Cao Junfeng has yet to be "transformed" and thus she is not allowed family visits." On September 7, the second day after the wedding, the police once again barged into the Cao's residence. They confiscated Falun Gong books and informational materials.
Cao Junfeng's husband suffered a tremendous mental blow and is currently under huge mental pressure. The newlywed daughter is also frequently summoned by the police for "interrogation."
Ms. Cao Junfeng's sister, Ms. Cao Junping, has been held by the police for more than two weeks, and her whereabouts are unknown. The husband of Ms. Cao Junping, although not a Falun Gong practitioner, was also taken away by the police because he tried to protect his wife. He was illegally incarcerated in the detention center for a month, and is currently released on bail. But he is being monitored by the police around the clock. Weifang City Police Department officials said that the duration of his release on bail while awaiting trial has been extended indefinitely.
Cao Junping's daughter, who is a resident of the US, is currently appealing to the international community to save her mother and aunt. Weifang City Police Department officials threatened Cao Junping's family members, and as for her daughter, they said they would "continue to use other means to pursue the matter."
