Chinese overseas media outlet XingTangRen reported on August 8 that a financial executive incarcerated for an economic case changed her outlook on life thanks to meeting a particular group of people.
In April 2001, Hebei Baoxiang Import & Export Group Co., Ltd. was suspected of defrauding on export tax rebates. The company’s boss and financial manager, Gao Xiaojie, were all detained and sent to the Xinle County Detention Center in Shijiazhuang. Here, Gao Xiaojie met Falun Gong practitioners.
Gao Xiaojie 高晓杰, the former financial manager, said, “The police officers in the detention center at that time still had a good attitude towards ordinary prisoners, including business prisoners. But they were very vicious toward Falun Gong practitioners. Cursing and beating them were just random things. I saw it with my own eyes. One of the worst forms of torture was force-feeding. Because they’re on a hunger strike, they’re force-fed. The practitioners will faint or bleed from the mouths if the food falls out.”
But Gao Xiaojie found that these Falun Gong practitioners didn’t hold any resentment and said they had no enemies, which she thought was inconceivable and especially surprised her.
In the past, Gao Xiaojie didn’t want to learn about Falun Gong, but now she was interested. Falun Gong practitioners around her told her that the philosophy of Falun Gong is “Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.”
Unexpectedly, in an unfortunate prison incident, she was lucky to learn about Falun Gong, and Gao Xiaojie’s life changed forever.
She gave up the idea of excusing herself and the company, told everything truthfully, and cooperated with the case.
Gao Xiaojie: “What people in this world are looking for may be fame, profit, or love. If you let it go, it may not be so painful.”
Two and a half years later, Gao Xiaojie walked out of prison. The family found that her former strong temper was gone.
Gao Xiaojie: “When I read the Zhuan Falun book, I felt I couldn’t be so competitive. If you are so, you are creating karma. “
Seeing the changes in Gao Xiaojie, the family knows that Falun Gong is good. Her family says that if everyone in society practiced Falun Gong, then family conflicts would be gone.
