Falun Dafa practitioner Liu Yonghong, male, 33, was an engineer in the coal industry department of the Shijiazhuang Research and Design Institute. On March 28, 2003, his supervisor suddenly told him to rest at home for a few days. On March 30, Shijiazhuang City police officers surrounded Liu's house to arrest him. Liu was injured after being forced to jump from the fifth floor to avoid persecution. He was sent to the neurology department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Bethune International Peace Hospital, but we do not know if he is alive or dead. The police suppressed news of his persecution, and they do not allow his relatives or friends to visit. Many plainclothes policemen have hid in the area, seeking to arrest other Falun Data practitioners that might try to visit him.

Liu Yonghong's younger brother, Liu Yongwang, was kidnapped in Shanghai on Sept. 15, 2001 and illegally sentenced to a forced-labor camp. Currently, he is in the Hehuakeng Forced Labor Camp, Hebei Province. He is unable to walk normally because he has been on a long hunger strike. He was barbarically force-fed several times.
