(Clearwisdom.net) Zhang Zhong is a Dafa disciple in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province. As a result of the persecution he received at Daqing Prison, his legs were injured and he became disabled. In addition to that there was a lot of bleeding from his mouth. The jail police still would not allow his family to visit him. It is currently unknown if Zhang Zhong is still alive. His wife, He Zhihong, was kidnapped once again on March 8, 2004.

He Zhihong is an employee of Heilongjiang Chemical Plant, Gas Separating Division. At about 2 p.m. on March 8, 2004, when she was distributing truth-clarification material in Sansheng Village, policemen from Lamadian Police Station arrested her. The police also went to search her home and confiscated Falun Dafa books and materials. He Zhihong is now detained in the Daqing Detention Center.

Zhang Zhong was illegally sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment for broadcasting Falun Gong documentary programs on the TV network. He is now detained in Daqing Prison. He Zhihong was sentenced to labor camps many times for persisting in her practice of Falun Gong. After being released from Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center, she went to Daqing Prison many times to visit her husband, but the prison officers refused her visitation privileges because she was a Falun Dafa practitioner.

In the middle of January 2004, division head Li and police guard Tian Xifeng brutally beat Zhang Zhong. Because of that, Zhang Zhong had difficulty eating--he vomited everything he ate, even spitting out blood. He was in a life-threatening situation. On the morning of March 11, 2004, a message was leaked out from the prison that Zhang Zhong was receiving IV treatment. The prison officials now tightly block such information, and they have assigned four people to keep watching Zhang Zhong day and night. The prison officials would not release Zhang Zhong, nor would they allow family members to visit. When He Zhihong requested visitation with Zhang Zhong, the prison guard said, "You can just wait, and we will let you know when he dies. We will tell you of his death."

Recently, the persecution of Zhang Zhong was exposed on the Internet. This put the Daqing officials under pressure, and they were afraid of taking responsibility for their actions. So police guard Li Weinan and division director Yu Mingchun (from He Zhihong' work unit) forced Zhang Zhong's family members to sign documents that claim that "the prison officials did not beat Zhang Zhong. And Zhang Zhong's death has nothing to do with the prison." Meanwhile, the police guard in the prison forced Zhang Zhong to sign a document saying, "if [Zhang Zhong] dies, it has nothing to do with the prison."

Why do Daqing Prison officials again and again refuse Zhang Zhong's family members' requests to visit him? Why were the authorities so eager to absolve themselves of any responsibility? Why did they absurdly claim that they were "allowing family members to visit on March 14 (Sunday)" when they arrested He Zhihong, his wife, on March 8? We hope that everyone will pay attention to these facts and support justice.
