(Clearwisdom.net) On November 15, 2006, personnel from the Tong An Li residents committee in Wande Zhuang, Nankai District, Tianjin City, in conjunction with Communist Party police broke into Falun Gong practitioner Li Yuzhen's home. They used the excuse of wanting to discuss a People's Congress election to deceive the practitioner into opening the door. They arrested her after they illegally searched her home, confiscated her family's property and imprisoned her at the detention center in Nankai District Police Department.

Ms. Li Yuzhen is 48 years old. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1997 because she had poor health for years. After beginning the practice she became physically healthy, her mind was purified and her family became harmonized. She was persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party personnel because she didn't give up practicing Falun Gong and her belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" to be a good citizen. She was sentenced to prison in 2001. She persisted in her belief after she was released and ceaselessly clarified the truth about Falun Gong to people she met.

At noon on November 15, 2006, Communist Party personnel from the local residents committee illegally broke into Li Yuzhen's home. They colluded with officers from the Wanxing Police Station and illegally searched her home without reason or showing any permit. More than ten police officers and five or six people from the residents committee turned over everything and threw Falun Gong books and some Falun Gong truth materials everywhere. Four or five police forcibly arrested Li Yuzhen and she was taken away without a coat or shoes. Two of the officers were Lin Mosheng and Wang Jian.

In front of another four or five police officers, including a policewoman and a plainclothes policeman named Wang, a police officer from the Wanxing Police Station showed a kind of "search permit." One Communist Party personnel asked the police to adjust and decorate his clothes. Another policeman started a camcorder and they read the "Search Permit" in front of Li Yuzhen's family members. Then the plainclothes policeman started the home search. They took a computer, a printer, a laminator, a paper cutter, an MP3 player, her daughter's cell phone and phone book, and one box of blank paper. The personnel tried to get a signature from Li Yuzhen's family members for the form that listed the items they took, but were rejected.

That very evening, when Li Yuzhen's family members went to the police station to deliver clothes and shoes for her, they discovered after inquiring about her status that Li Yuzhen had been sent to the detention center at Nankai District Police Department. Four policemen (one of them being Wang Jian) showed them an "arrest permit" and asked for a signature, but were rejected.

Currently the whole family of Li Yuzhen feels very sad. Her daughter cannot eat or drink. Li Yuzhen's father is sick in bed and they are afraid to tell him the truth.
