(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Sun Zhaohai lived in the Youyi Candy Factory Family Housing in Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province. He had to leave home to avoid being arrested in 2002, but was later arrested in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province at the end of 2002.

According to reports on Clearwisdom.net, (see, http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2002/11/15/28758.html , and http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2003/7/17/38198.html ), on October 27, 2002, the Chengguan District Court in Lanzhou City sentenced seven Falun Dafa practitioners for allegedly tapping into the TV system to spread the truth about Falun Gong. Mr. Sun Zhaohai was sentenced to nineteen years in prison. The Court did not notify any of these practitioners' family members.

Mr. Sun Zhaohai's family received one phone call from Lanzhou City, saying that Mr. Sun Zhaohai was sentenced to a heavy prison term. But when they went to visit him according to the address the phone call provided, he was not there. For the past four years, Mr. Sun Zhaohai's younger brother and his paralyzed mother have been very worried about him.
