Mr. Guo Daoyou Arrested in Qinhuangdao City, Family Without Support
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Guo Daoyou, 51, is an employee of Yuguan Town Fiber Factory, Funing County in Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. He has recently been arrested for practicing Falun Gong.
Mr. Guo Daoyou's salary is not very high but he is nevertheless the sole support of a family of four who now face financial trouble. The two children may even be deprived of their education.
Ten years ago, Mr. Guo's wife suffered from many diseases, including heart disease, leukemia and breast cancer. At the time, the couple even considered placing their two children with two of the wife's sisters. The family came close to being broken apart when Mr. Guo' wife received the book Zhuan Falun, and started practicing Falun Dafa. She is still continuously reading it. She came to understand the importance of being a good person and considering others first. Not long after his wife learned Falun Dafa, she became very healthy. Mr. Guo told everyone she met about the miracles that happened to her after she started to practice Falun Dafa. Witnessing her recovery, Mr. Guo also started practicing Falun Gong.
The Guo family benefited a lot from practicing Falun Dafa. After the Chinese Communist Party banned Falun Gong, the family saved whatever money they could to produce printed materials about Falun Gong and the persecution. On the afternoon of July 18, 2008, director Chen Xingguo, instructor Wang Baoyi, and other Party officials from the of the Yuguan Police station, together with Li Haifeng, the leader of the Funing County Domestic Security Division, Chen Jingli and many other officials went to Mr. Guo's home without a warrant. They took away a desktop, the children's laptop used for homework, a printer, paper, and Dafa books, exercise tapes and DVDs. They also took away Mr. Guo's tools for electric welding, pliers, a wrench, computer disks and other personal items. They even took away three mats made from grass for sitting. In addition, they took away some of the son's school notebooks, a box of the daughter's clothes, the children's MP3 player, a special pen and a storage bin for clothing. Although the family asked repeatedly to have these items returned, they never got them back.
After the officials ransacked the home they lured Mr. Guo to the police station telling him that he could have his things back and arrested him instead. That night, he was taken to the Funing County Detention Center where he has been held ever since.
On the afternoon of August 24, 2008, the family received a notification of arrest approval signed by Wang Baoyi, Chen Jingli, the director of the Funing County National Security Division and one other person. The family refused to accept it. The family has not been allowed to visit him at the Funing County Detention Center.
It is suspected that some of the officials involved plan to take advantage of Mr. Guo, who is considered a 'political case', in order to get promoted.
