(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Li Ganlin is a Chinese language teacher in Longquan Middle School (formerly Duanchun Middle School) in Longquan Town, Jimo City, Shandong Province. His classes are always outstanding, and his colleagues and students, as well as the students' parents, think highly of him. However, because he adheres to the practice of Falun Gong, he was secretly arrested by Jimo City's 610 Office.

Teacher Li Ganlin

After Mr. Li Ganlin began to practice Falun Gong in 1998, he often helped students who were in financial need with money he saved from his salary. Besides giving his students knowledge, Mr. Li paid more attention to the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" to guide his students to be good people.

Because he firmly believes in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," this well-regarded teacher has been unjustly persecuted since July 20, 1999, including being illegally detained, being sent to a brainwashing center, and being fined.

On his way home on Wednesday afternoon, June 21, 2006, Mr. Li was secretly arrested by officials from the Jimo City 610 Office and the Longquan Police Station. To date, his whereabouts are still unknown. It was said that he has most likely been transferred to the Jimo Detention Center from the Longquan Police Station.

The students who witnessed the arrest were justifiably very angry. Teacher Li Ganlin had just sent his students to take their final exams and then could not attend their graduation ceremony. Many students plan to go to the 610 Office together and ask the officials to release their teacher.
