(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Liu Hongying, Xu Yongqing, and Lu Chengjun from Laizhou City in Shandong Province have been illegally detained in the Laizhou City Detention Center. Party members claimed that they would try these practitioners on January 24, 2007, at a court in Laizhou City, located on the east side of the old supermarket. This was in fact a trap set up to arrest other practitioners. That day, 23 practitioners were arrested. They were incarcerated in the Dianzi Brainwashing Center in Laizhou City.

On January 24, 610 Office officials placed a large number of plainclothes police in the vicinity of the court. These agents knew the practitioners from the different townships and towns. These police had orders to arrest people walking on the street. They even stopped the supermarket shoppers, whom they considered suspects, and put them in the police vehicles. The police knew that they were violating the law. They claimed they were wanting to arrest burglars.

Around 9:30 a.m. on January 26, 2007. the police tried practitioners Ms. Liu Hongying, Xu Yongqing, and Lu Chengjun in a dark room outside the detention center in the absence of their family members. Furthermore, the police did not even spell out the judge's name in the court. Policeman Sun Junwei (who lives in the Yiwan residential area and whose wife works in the People's Hospital) beat Ms. Liu Hongying to the floor and then handcuffed her. The three practitioners were dragged out of the court.

The court even went so far as to fabricate the facts. The court made up some names, saying these were the names of those who had testified. The court listed all the things that were taken away from Xu Yongqing's home except cash in the amount of 48,700 yuan. Ms. Xu's father, over 80 years old, died in November 2006. He was traumatized by the police who had broken into his home.

Additionally, one male and two female plainclothes police officers reported Qi Haijun, a disabled practitioner from Laizhou City, on the evening of January 23, 2007. He was then sent to Laizhou City Detention Center although they found nothing on him to use as evidence against him. About 2:00 p.m. on January 27, Mr. Qi suddenly felt dizzy, had a rapid heart beat and lost consciousness. He then went into convulsions and fell into a coma. When his family members learned of his condition, they petitioned the detention center to allow them to bring him home. They did bring him home after paying 4,000 yuan in cash as a "warrant of probation."
