Paddy Rice Expert Mr. Yu Liangbin, 68, from Heilongjiang Province Arrested
(Clearwisdom.net) 68-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Yu Liangbin is a renowned paddy rice expert at the Suihua Branch, Heilongjiang Province Academy of Agricultural Sciences. He was illegally arrested in October 2006 during another round of persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by agents of the Communist regime. He is currently being held at the Suihua Detention Center, where he suffers in miserable conditions.
610 Office Agents Arrested Yu Liangbin
Female agent Wang Shubo and Li Jianfei from Beilin District "610 Office" in Suihua City led seven police officers to break into Yu Liangbinâ€™s home during the afternoon of October 19, 2006 while Yu Liangbin was at work. Two police officers pinned Yu Liangbinâ€™s wife, who is in her 70s, on the couch so she could not move while the police ransacked the home and took computers and other valuables. They then managed to arrest Yu Liangbin.
Yu Liangbinâ€™s wife was terrified during the break-in. She now trembles when she sees strangers and lives in constant fear and worry for her husband's safety. One day she became disoriented and fell down, hurting her face and knocking out one of her teeth.
A New Life
Back in 1997, Mr. Yu Liangbin had suffered from severe stomach pain. He would break into sweat from the pain and have difficulty swallowing. He experienced stomach bleeding and was diagnosed with stomach cancer at the Hospital Affiliated with Harbin Medical University. His superiors had planned to engage the best doctors to operate on him; nevertheless, Mr. Yuâ€™s mood was extremely depressed, and he despaired. One morning before the surgery, Yu Liangbin took a stroll and saw a group of people practicing Falun Gong. He stood there and watched. A practitioner approached him and introduced Falun Gong to him. After some thinking, Yu Liangbin decided to forgo the surgery and practice Falun Gong instead. The cancer disappeared in the following several months of Falun Gong practice, and he completely recovered. Dafa cured him and also saved his employers a tremendous amount of medical expenses. His white hair turned black again, and he became increasingly energetic as he continued to practice Falun Gong.
The hospital had handed Yu Liangbin a death sentence, but Falun Dafa gave him a healthy body and a new life. He worked tirelessly in his agricultural profession and devoted himself to rice harvest research.
Numerous Major Scientific Achievements Throughout Life
Yu Liangbin had experienced the wonders of Falun Dafa. He conducted himself according to Truth, Compassion and Forbearance and became a good person.
He worked very hard while taking fame and money lightly, making tremendous contributions in the field of rice research. With support from Heilongjiang Province's Academy of Agricultural Sciences, he conducted a series of studies on increasing the per-acre rice yield. He developed the model for "Method of Super-high Yield Cultivation Based on Single Rice Plant Transplantation Per Hill in Cold Regions." He conducted experiments in Jiangxi Province, Liaoning Province, Jilin Province and other places. The result of his research showed an average savings of 60 kg of seeds per acre with an increase of 2,000 kg of rice yield per acre, amounting to an increased monetary value of 2,400 yuan per acre.
Calling for Conscience
Falun Dafa gave Yu Liangbin a second life. He explained to people the tremendous physical and mental changes in him brought about by Dafa, because he simply wanted to give back to the practice that has done so much for him. He also told people the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong and the crimes of the Chinese Communist Party.
