Witness of Wang Xingzhou
My name is Wang Xing Zhou, male, 56 years old, Tujia nationality, and live in Mao Baxiang, Li Chuan city, Hubei province.
In the morning of 15th May 1991, when I was having breakfast, Wu Yousheng, Liu yi, Su Chang and other 6 person from Li Chuanshi public security bureau came to my home. Wu Yousheng said to me: ” do not believe in what the non nativr people said! They are all rumors and legends. They are here to deceive people. He will make you a murder later.” I answered: ” he only speaks about doing good and keeping away from evil.”
Seeing that I did not listen to him, they said nothing and left. 3 days later, the local government informed me to go to attend a “training class” held in the town where the government locates. Bringing my quite and some living expenses, l went there obediently with 6 believers. In the class, Liu Mou from Li Chuan public security bureau asked me fiercely: “how did you believe? and what is about?”
I answer: “To abide by the ten commandments in everything, do not to steal, respect the parents, and so on€¦” hearing this, Ceng Qingming from Mao Ba local police station exhibited his dagger before us, and another police said: “Give them a lesson! You’d better think it over, and report to us honestly”
We lived in the “training class” for 7 days. In the last day, we were handcuffed and demonstrated publicly. Afterwards we were locked up in the Li Chuan penitentiary for 15 days, and paid 18 yuan for the living expenses before release. They also asked for 250 yuan for the expenses of “training class” but I did not give them.

in the morning of 15th April 1992, when I was transplanting rice seedlings, several policemen (including Wu Yousheng, Tan Faxiang, Su Chang from Li Chuan public security bureau, and Ceng Qingming, Ou Guikuan, Liu Yi from Mao Ba local police station), arrive in front of my house. Ceng Qingming entered into the house and said to me: “Go to the local police station with us.”
I found another believer also there when I got in the police car. We were locked in the local police station that day and sent to the Mao Ba local police station the next day. They interrogated me whom I had preached the gospel to and asked me to confess. We were there for 3 days and fined 300 yuan. I submitted the exact number to them and got the receipt.

Because I did not commit any crime yet was beaten up, locked in, and fined for several times, I in August 1992, we several believers gathered some money and appealed to the province government. After some days, the court concluded that what we appealed is true. But the Li Chuan public security bureau detained the documents from the prefecture, Wu Yousheng said: “you can get nothing.” I had to walk away sadly.
One day in the May of 1993, we were transplanting rice seedlings, Tan Faxing and Ou Guikuan from Li Chuan public security bureau droved the police car to our village with the siren whistling. They grabbed me to the Mao Ba local police station. Huang Jicheng, Li Chuanshi public security bureau, roared at me: “old silly thing who never repent!” I answered: “I am guilt of nothing, you can beat and even kill me as you like!”
At last, we were paraded on the streets with a black board hung on our necks, on which it was written “Wang Xingzhou, core member of Cult, reaction organization” with 5 believers. and afterwards we were brought to Li Chuanshi penitentiary to be in detention there for 35 days. I paid 250 yuan for myself, and 150 yuan for my son after we went home.

in April 1994, one day , I was picking tea on the slope, Ceng Qingming and Liu Yi from Mao Ba local police station came to my house, they shouted: ” open the gate quickly, or else I will break in by kicking.” After I opened the gate for them, Ceng Qingming asked me: “what’s your post in the church? We grab you into the prison if you are dishonest.” Then they forced me to take out 800 Yuan within three days. Otherwise, they would catch the pig, and tore down the house.
I was frightened and said: “where shall I get so much money? my son and daughter are still young.” My wife cried and begged them in tear: “Is it possible for us to be fined less?” “No way! The fine will be doubled if you continued begging.” seeing that we really did not have so much, they extended the time limit to one week.
After they left, I did everything possible to gathered 300 yuan and sent to the police station for fear that they came to tear down my house. Tian Shan and Tian Zuzhi said: ” still not enough, hand over to us at once, otherwise we go to rear your house down!”
I went back home, sold the pig but still could not get enough money. So I had to go out to borrow again, and gathered 500 Yuan and sent to the local police station. Ceng Qingming said fiercely: “if you still continued making troubles, we will continue grabbing you, punishing you, and tear your house down to see where you can live?” then he ridiculed me: “this little amount of money is nothing to you because God will bless you.”
