(Clearwisdom.net) Dalian Polytechnic University mechanical engineering department doctoral candidate Mr. Huang Hongqi was arrested and persecuted by party personnel in 2003, resulting in a mental breakdown. In February 2006 he was again arrested and his whereabouts remain unknown to this day.

Doctoral candidate Mr. Huang Hongqi is 35 years old. When the evil Party started the persecution against Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, he was in his final semester of his doctoral dissertation at Dalian Polytechnic University. Despite this pressure, Mr. Huang persisted in his belief of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He firmly stepped forward to clarify the truth and uphold the principles of Falun Dafa. He also encouraged many other fellow practitioners to step forward. He was illegally arrested and imprisoned in the Dalian reformatory for two and a half years. His doctoral candidacy was also cancelled by the university.

After regaining his freedom, Mr. Huang was arrested by national security personnel in July 2003 for preparing truth-clarifying materials. At that time, the national security unit tried to convert Mr. Huang into a spy to work for them, promising him 100,000 yuan and other benefits as well as threatening him. He firmly resisted their corrupt plan and protected his fellow practitioners by not revealing their names or identities throughout the encounter. After suffering enormous and devastating abuse and persecution, he was released in December 2003. By this time he was extremely thin, his state of mind was unclear, he frequently suspected that the national security personnel were tracking and monitoring him and that his relatives, friends or colleagues would do him harm. He had completely lost the capability to work normally.

In February 2006, according to a family member's disclosure, on the third day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, while alone and on the way home from Shenzhen (or Guangzhou), he was arrested once more. Chinese Communist Party agents accused him of preparing truth clarifying materials. Now his whereabouts are still unknown. We urgently appeal to people with a sense of justice to please pay attention to this matter.
