(Clearwisdom.net) My younger brother, Lin Mingli, was illegally arrested by Shanghai police and brutally tortured at a labor camp for two years for practicing Falun Gong. He was freed from the labor camp due to rescue efforts from the Canadian government and others.

Yet, the wicked Communist regime has never stopped persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.

A short time after my brother was reunited with his wife he was suddenly arrested again by 610 Office agents when the couple was taking a stroll inside their apartment complex. He has been detained since 2005, only because he persists in Dafa practice. The local 610 Office regard him as a major target.

When he was arrested on October 3, 2005, the 610 Office agents arrested his friends and tortured them in an attempt to extract a confession that could be used against him. They tried to coerce them into providing "evidence" against Lin Mingli, but their efforts failed.

Lin Mingli was clarifying the truth to people. People have freedom of speech. He was merely exercising his right as a Chinese citizen. The police ransacked his home from 10:00 p.m. until 4:00 a.m. but could not find anything to incriminate him. Personnel from the Putuo District 610 Office submitted his case to the court twice. It was not accepted either time due to lack of physical evidence and eyewitnesses.

At a recent court trial, Lin Mingli was sentenced to prison despite the absence of evidence. The trial verdict was premeditated, as was the sentence.

I again call for all kind-hearted people to help rescue my brother and many other Falun Gong practitioners who are incarcerated and cruelly tortured and who face the possibility of being brutally murdered at any time.
