Wang Xiaodan: Father Imprisoned And Mainland Relatives
We continue to focus on reports of Falun Dafa practitioner,
Oct. 18, Wang Zhiwen was transferred directly to the Beijing
Changping District brainwashing center, after release
from Beijing prison, for continued persecution.
Until now, we haven´t heard anything.
His daughter Wang Xiaodan told media her mainland relatives
have all received repressive intimidation from the Chinese
Communist Party because of her Dad.
Refusing to transform, Wang Zhiwen was shackled with
28 kg handcuffs, leg irons and locked into a small cell.
He has endured long term sleep deprivation; his collarbone
broken from beating and teeth knocked out.
His fingers were bleeding from inserted toothpicks….
Wang Zhiwen is not the only one being persecuted.
His daughter Wang Xiaodan told NDT reporter, her
mainland relatives were under huge pressure from the CCP
after Wang Zhiwen was detained in 1999.
Wang Xiaodan:" My relatives told me not to look for my Dad
during his time at the brainwashing center,
they would not know his whereabouts either."
Reporter: “They are also very afraid?"
Wang Xiaodan: “My relatives? Of course, they are pretty much
scared and worried about themselves.
I had told them I want to tell the world about my Dad
when he was in prison. They all begged me not to.
For I am a US citizen and I am in the US; but they are Chinese
and living in China.
They asked me not to tell the outside world, it is for their safety.”
In 2007, Wang Xiaodan flew to Sydney to protest the CCP´s
persecution of her Dad and the tens of thousands of Falun
Gong practitioners during the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic
In Sydney, Wang Xiaodan claimed she will never give up
appealing for her Dad.
However, because of the huge impact of telling the truth,
all her relatives are very afraid.
Wang Xiaodan: “my grandmother, my aunts all wrote to me.
My uncle was the first to expose me on the evil website.
My mother said they have been implicated, and my Dad´s
sentence could be extended."
Wang Xiaodan said that her mother has experienced most
intimidation for all these years.
My relatives even wanted to break off with her.
Wang Xiaodan: “In 2008, my family wanted to break off
with me and it was very intense.
In 2009, I married a US citizen, a westerner.
They immediately told my Mom about my husband’s name
and background which scared my Mom.
They even wanted to beg me on their knees and fainted when I
was trying to tell the truth a few days ago.
But I think I should do it."
Even her grandmother, who has been helping the CCP to
persuade Wang Zhiwen to give up the practice, as well as
Xiaodan to stop telling the truth.
She was under CCP monitoring until her death.
Wang Xiaodan: “My grandmother told my uncle, she has been
a CCP member for so many years and so loyal to the party.
However, because of my Dad, her phone was tapped for
many years. She was very puzzled."
So why does the CCP persecute Wang Zhiwen and intimidate his
family with such effort?
Beijing activist Hu Jia: “His jail time went through pretty much
the reigns of Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao and into the Xi Jinping.
He certainly has learnt a lot about the suppression
and persecution to Falun Gong believers in prison.
So if he is released, he is a witness in human rights
to the community."
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Dai: “CCP´s persecution is not
only to Falun Gong practitioners, but extends to the entire family.
CCP is so vicious to Falun Gong practitioners and their families.
It will not let go of any member of the family.
Jiang Zemin has claimed to destroy Falun Gong practitioners,
financially and physically."
Before her father´s release, Xiaodan wrote to her mainland
The letter said: Heaven flipped, black and white contrasted,
the memory is sad.
Xiaodan encouraged herself to restore innocence for her Dad
and Falun Gong practitioners.
After years of hard work, I will never regret!
Hope the whole family will unite to make all hope return.
Hope to get together with Dad and never separate.
