(Clearwisdom.net) Four practitioners from Yucheng County, Shangqiu City, Henan Province, were illegally arrested by police between August 16 and 18. They are now being detained at Yucheng County Detention Center and elsewhere.

Practitioner Ms. Wang Jingping, over 50 years old, lived in Yucheng County. She is a retired teacher. She was already detained at Yucheng County Detention Center for more than two months in December 2000. On August 16, 2006, around 3 a.m., she was arrested by police officer Wang Junfeng and others. The police confiscated Teacher’s photo, Falun Dafa books, and truth-clarifying materials. Ms. Wang Jingping was the only one at home when she was arrested. Her husband worked outside Yucheng County. Her son and daughter-in-law were not home at that time. Her son came back and asked Zhang Zhengxian, the chief of the Political and Security Section, many times to release his mother. The police not only refused to release Ms. Wang, but also threatened that they would send her to the forced labor camp. Ms. Wang Jingping is now being held in Yucheng County Detention Center. She is suffering from the police’s brutal persecution.

Practitioner Mr. Song Shengli, a farmer, is over 30 years old. On August 16, 2006, around 3 a.m., police broke into his home and arrested him and his son. His son is still in school. Under the influence of practitioners’ righteous thoughts and the coordination of his family members, his son was released. The police tried to extort 2,000 yuan from him but they failed. Mr. Song’s family relies completely on his income.

Practitioner Mr. Peng Hongyan, a farmer, is over 30 years old. On New Year's Day 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa and was arrested. He was brutally beaten and sent to a forced labor camp for two and a half years. On August 17, 2006, he was arrested again. Mr. Peng also has an aging mother. His family is very poor, and they rely totally on his income.

Practitioner Mr. Zhu Xinwen, a farmer, is over 50 years old. He lived in Lilaojia Township, Yucheng County. In the summer of 2000, he went to Beijing with his mother and his oldest daughter (18 years old) to appeal for Falun Dafa. Mr. Zhu and his daughter were arrested by the police. They were brutally beaten and detained. At the end of 2000, his second daughter (16 years old) went to Beijing to appeal and was arrested as well. After that, Mr. Zhu and his oldest daughter were detained many times and were sentenced to forced labor twice. His nearly 90-year-old mother, his wife, and three little daughters were left at home. His wife was so affected mentally that she can no longer handle the housework or the farm work. During the busy farming season, they had to ask for relatives’ help. Their living conditions are very difficult. The whole family was not able to reunite until the 2005 Lunar New Year.

On the afternoon of August 16, 2006, the chief of the Lilaojia Township Police Station, Lu Chunwei, brought four police officers and broke into Mr. Zhu Xinwen’s home. They claimed they were "executing the higher level authority’s command" to search Mr. Zhu’s house. They did not find anything. Police officer Lu Chunwei threatened to take away Teacher’s photo or he would arrest Mr. Zhu. His family members sent forth righteous thoughts, and the police left empty handed. On the afternoon of August 18, Zhang Zhengxian, Wang Kequan, and Wang Junfeng from the Political and Security Section and Lu Chunwei from the Lilaojia Township Police Station, broke into Mr. Zhu’s home again. They arrested him and took away Teacher’s photo. Mr. Zhu Xinwen is now in the Yucheng County Detention Center.
