Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Jin Xuezhe (ethnic Korean) from Changchun City, Jilin Province was arrested and sent to Tiexi Detention Center in Changchun City on February 28, 2003 for passing out Falun Gong materials. He has not yet been released. He did not have enough clothes, so his family tried to send a comforter and some clothes to him, but police refused to pass them on using the excuse of SARS prevention. We learned that Jin Xuezhe was transferred to Tiebei Detention Center on May 16, and no one knows where he is now.

We learned from his mother who lives overseas, that he started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. According to her, he strictly disciplined himself and lived by the standard of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. He tried to be a good person. He respected his parents, cared about his brothers, loved others in society, and always thought of others first. He was outstanding in his work. He had been a responsible employee, never complained, and did his job well. Because he always tried to be a good person according to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance, the police often harassed him. He had to change his residence many times in the past 2 years. Policemen would always be waiting near his home, looking for an opportunity to arrest him. He was forced to become destitute and homeless in order to avoid being illegally arrested and was unable to work as well.
