In May 2006, persecutors from the Shulan City National Security Division in Jilin Province illegally arrested six Dafa practitioners including Zhao Yongcai, Yao Yuguo, Liu Dongmei, and Liu Lifen, causing their families tremendous harm. The families went to the National Security Division and asked for their release. The police refused to let them meet with the practitioners. According to an insider, Li Jiazhe, the Shulan City National Security Division head and others tortured the practitioners and caused them permanent injuries, which is why they are strictly blocking information and stonewalling the families' requests to meet with the practitioners.
