1. The arrest of Dafa practitioner Zhou Zaitian
On March 4, 2006 around 8 oclock, 20-30 people from the Political Security Department of Sanhe City and the Yanjiao Public Security Bureau (PSB) Branch illegally arrested Dafa practitioner Zhou Zaitian and took him/her to the Sanhe City detention center.
2. Police break into residence without a warrant
About 10:00 a.m. on May 26, 2006, around 10 people from the Yanjiao local government and the Yanjiao PSB Branch attempted to illegally arrest Dafa practitioner Zhang Liancun. Because no one was home, the doors of several rooms were damaged by their forced entry.
3. Yanjiao Dafa practitioner Zhang Deli arrested again
About 8:00 a.m. on February 25, 2006, the Yanjiao PSB Branch, Sanhe National Security and the Langfang 610 Office went to the homes of practitioners Ma Weishan, Zhang Deli and Zhou Zhuanzhong with the intent to arrest them. Four police vehicles raided Zhang Delis place, seizing the TV set, video player, Dafa books and Masters portrait. Zhang Deli and his second son (a non-practitioner) were taken to the Sanhe detention center.
At the detention center, the police incited criminal inmates to hit the back, hands, and feet of Mr. Zhangs son with a bottle filled with water. They also planned to arrest Mr. Zhangs wife Hu Baozhen, who has now been forced to flee her home.
Practitioner Zhang Deli has been in the detention center for over three months. The lawless police continue to order criminal inmates to beat him, and deny his family visitation rights.
4. Persecution endured by practitioner Zhou Zhuanzhong and his family
On February 25, 2006 around 9 oclock, six policemen from the Yanjiao Public Security Branch broke into practitioner Zhou Zhuanzhongs home and ransacked it. The whole family of five -- husband, wife, son and daughter-in-law, and three year-old grandson -- were all taken to the Yanjiao Public Security Branch. The young child and his mother were released that night around 8:00 p.m., while Mr. Zhang and his wife and son were transferred to the Sanhe detention center. Mr. Zhou had a high fever of approximately 105 degrees F. Three days later, the three were transferred to a brainwashing center held in the Jiaotong Hotel in Langfang. They remain there today.
After Mr. Zhous wife had been detained for 26 days, she was transferred to the Sanhe "transformation" class. Three days later, she became seriously ill and was transferred back to the hotel brainwashing class on April 3. She was taken back to Sanhe National Security on April 30 and was picked up by her family.
Zhang Zhuanzhongs son was taken to the Sanhe detention center. His legs were so badly beaten by the criminal inmates that he could not stand up. He spent over a thousand yuan on medical treatment when he was released one month later, but still could not walk properly.
5. Exposing Yanjiao PSB Branch police officer Li Liandi
At 3:30 p.m. on February 25, 2003, Yanjiao PSB branch police officer Li Liandi and three others searched Dafa practitioner Ma Weishans home. They took away his cassette recorder, TV set, other electrical appliances, and all of his Dafa books. They took Ma Weishan, along with two other practitioners, driving away in the car parked in the yard of the Ma family. Ma Weishan is over 60 years old and has been persecuted in the Sanhe detention center for over 3 months now. Mr. Ma protested the persecution by going on a hunger strike, and his health condition is very serious.
6. Practitioners Guo Zheng and Di Wenzhu are arrested
Around noon on March 16, several policemen from the Yanjiao PSB branch, the police station of the No. 1 Metallurgy Bureau and Wang Hong, the chief of the Metallurgy Police Station, forced themselves into the home of Dafa practitioner Guo Zheng, taking him away. Mr. Guo has suffered persecution in the Sanhe City detention for over 2 months now.
On March 2, 2006, Yanjiao PSB Branch colluded with the Metallurgy PSB to kidnap practitioner Mr. Di Wenzhu, an engineer from the Geological Prospecting Department of the No. 1 Metallurgy Bureau. Mr. Di has been unlawfully incarcerated for nearly three months.
