Eighteen-Year-Old Girl Arrested for Appealing for Her Father (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) Zhu Xiuyun, an 18-year-old girl who lived in Aobao Village, Taikang County, Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province, sought justice for her father, Mr. Zhu Yanghe, who was arrested and sent to a labor camp. She took a petition signed by more than 200 people to the County Court on August 19, 2006. At the direction of Li Shilin of the 610 Office, court officials and dozens of police officers from the central police station arrested Ms. Zhu Xiuyun.
On June 30, 2006, Ms. Zhu Xiuyun's father, Mr. Zhu Yanghe, was taken from his home by Li Shilin, head of the local 610 Office, and others. Ms. Zhu's mother was ill; she had lost a third of her body weight, was struggling, and couldn't make a living. The farm and the milking cow were left untended. The girl was distressed for her mother and worried about her father, so on her way to work in the city she went to appeal by herself without telling anyone.
The virtuous girl believed that the government officials would help her by following the law and rescuing her father, but she didn't expect the officials to arrest her as well. Her worried and ailing mother heard about her disappearance three days later. Her relatives accompanied her mother to the County Seat and learned that the young lady had been arrested. They went to the county government, the People's Congress, and the Political and Legal Committee looking for her. While they were in the office of Tang Huaijun, the director of the Political and Legal Committee, 610 Office personnel arrived, saying that Ms. Zhu Xiuyun had submitted an illegal petition to sue Li Shilin, so they sent her to the detention center, although they waited three days before they notified the family.
