(Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of June 2, 2006, Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Lei Yangfan, a resident of Changsha City, went to the Dongtang post office to mail letters, and was arrested by two policemen, Ou and Chen. At 11:00 p.m. policemen went to Mr. Lei Yangfan's parent's house at the regional government’s family housing where Mr. Lei lives. They searched the house but did not find anything. Later, Mr. Lei Yangfan was sent to Changsha City First Detention Center.

Mr. Lei Yangfan was previously employed by the Bank of China in Hunan Province, and considered by his colleagues to be a very good and virtuous person with a lot of talent. Mr. Lei went to Beijing twice to appeal for Falun Gong after the Chinese Communist Party began to persecute Falun Gong in 1999. He was detained several times and was dismissed by his employer.

In early 2000, Mr. Lei Yangfan attended a Fa Conference, and was later sentenced to two years of forced labor by Changsha City officials. He was detained at the Xinkaipu Forced Labor Camp and tortured both physically and mentally. During this period his daughter Hanhan was born.

After he was released from the Xinkaiu Labor Camp, Mr. Lei’s entire family was finally reunited. His wife, Mrs. Zhou Pinjun (previously named Chen Guo), was then sentenced to seven years in prison because she practiced Falun Gong. She was detained at Changsha Women's Prison. Hanhan was only six years old when she had to go live with her grandparents. A good family was persecuted and separated.

We hope Falun Dafa practitioners in Changsha City will pay more attention to sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil and help rescue Mr. Lei Yangfan so that he may walk out of the labor camp with righteous thoughts.
