(Clearwisdom.net) On March 13, 2007, between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m., Falun Dafa practitioner Mao Wei, an engineer at the Nickel and Cobalt Research Institute, took some photos of the Binhelu Police Station building in Jinchang City. The police there discovered and arrested him.

In the evening, police officers Zhang Shuwei and Dai Baoji from the Jinchuan Group Company’s Longshou Police Station went to Mr. Mao Wei’s house to harass his family. Zhang and Dai are notorious for their persecution of Falun Gong. They told Mr. Mao’s wife that her husband was in big trouble. Then they searched their home and confiscated a computer and a portable hard drive. They also went to the home of Mr. Mao’s parents and searched their home. His mother was so shocked by the abrupt intrusion that she fainted. That did not stop them. They went on to Mao Wei’s office and took his computer away and also the computer of his colleague, Falun Gong practitioner Zhao Shenghua.

The policemen tortured Mao Wei at the police station. Long-term handcuff abuse turned his hands purple. His face was badly disfigured due to the torture. He was sent to the Longshou Police Branch of the Jinchuan Group on March 14, 2007, for more interrogation, and then was sent to the Jinchang City Detention Center on March 15, 2007.

The Communist regime looks calm on the surface, but behind the scenes it has never stopped persecuting Falun Gong. Many practitioners are under surveillance and their phone calls are being intercepted. According to police sources, the police pay special attention to people with higher education.

Beginning in January 2007, Gansu Province police headquarters sent secret agents to Jinchang. Their job is to monitor and intercept Falun Gong practitioners in order to intensify the persecution of Falun Gong. Mao Wei's arrest and the subsequent search of his home were part of that campaign.

In addition, practitioner Zhang Shumei and another practitioner were arrested in Yongchang County, Jinchang City. Their homes were also searched.

We call upon everyone who reads this information, especially practitioners in Jinchang City, to intensify their efforts to send forth righteous thoughts and support Mao Wei to be strong. We should completely deny the old forces’ arrangements; even the existence of the old forces should be denied. We should disintegrate all the evil elements and their factors, and disintegrate the evil everywhere Dafa practitioners are persecuted. Let all those who have persecuted Dafa practitioners receive instant retribution. Let’s get Mao Wei out of jail quickly.
