Note: Ms. Zhang Yunhe is the wife of Mr. Zou Songtao, who was tortured to death for practicing Falun Gong.

When I was at the Anti-Cult Section of Qingdao City Police Department, I heard the police sharing some information about practitioner Ms. Zhang Yunhe. The Shandong Province Police department ordered the arrest of Ms. Zhang. Since Ms. Zhang has relatives overseas, the police station handling her case has no authority to release her. The real power that manipulates the persecution is the Anti-Cult Section of the Qingdao City Police Department.

Up until now, the Anti-Cult Section has denied to the outside world that Ms. Zhang was ever detained at the Dashan Detention Center in Qingdao City, and has lied, saying that they had no idea where Ms. Zhang was. I asked another detained practitioner, Ms. Song Meilan at the Dashan Detention Center, about the whereabouts of Ms. Zhang. Ms. Song verified that in March 2002, a practitioner detained in the same cell confirmed that Ms. Zhang was detained in cell 208.

The prolonged detention of Ms. Zhang is far beyond the original sentence, but the police did not inform Ms. Zhang's family.

We hope that people overseas and Ms. Zhang's friends can work together to rescue her and expose the persecution.
