(Clearwisdom.net) Chinese Communist Party agents arrested Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Lu Xueqin from Shuiqinggou, Qingdao City, Shandong Province on January 26, 2008. They also arrested and searched the home of another practitioner, 50-year-old Ms. Wang Yuling from the Second District. The women were both detained in the Liaoyuan Road Police Station. The day before, on January 27, practitioner Mr. Yin from Li Village, Qingdao City was arrested on his way home, and the police searched his home. They confiscated Dafa books, truth-clarification materials and a computer. Mr. Yin is also held in the Liaoyuan Road Police Station. The agents even impounded his van.
According to information from a source in the police station, the recent arrests of practitioners by Qingdao National Security agents happened because of a direct order from the Shandong Province National Security Bureau and Police Department. The Special Case Group responsible for persecuting Falun Gong is located at the Hefei Road Police Station.
The following is an account of the arrest of Ms. Lu Xueqin:
On January 26, 2008, Ms. Lu Xueqin had gone to a market at 5:00 p.m. to shop for groceries and was followed. The police arrested her and took her to the Liaoyuan Road Police Station. At 6:00 p.m. three plainclothes policemen went to Ms. Lu's home and monitored her husband and daughter. One of the policemen attempted to beat them.
A total of ten policemen eventually arrived at Ms. Lu's home between 6:00 p.m. and midnight. Two policemen came with a search warrant and commenced the illegal search. Two officers pushed Ms. Lu's husband on the sofa, so he could not move. They even attempted to beat him. They confiscated all Dafa books, Dafa materials, pictures of Master, phone cards, an MP3 player, U drive, electronic books, five to six cell phones (some of them were out of service) and a total of 130,000 yuan in cash. Ms. Lu's husband told them that his daughter used the computer for her schoolwork, so they left the computer. The policemen even searched the room where Ms. Lu's husband stored tools; their daughter's backpack and the husband's car. Finally, they also took the husband and daughter to the police station and interrogated them separately until 3:00 a.m.
Ms. Lu Xueqin has suffered from heart disease for over 20 years, since she was twelve. When the condition was at its worst, she had to be transported by ambulance twice in one day. She often became unconscious and had to frequently sit up for the whole night and could not sleep. The family had to ask for neighbors' help in the middle of the night, carrying her to the ambulance. Since Ms. Lu started practicing Falun Gong in 1997, her heart disease disappeared. She has never taken any medicine in the past ten years. Many people thought it is a miracle and many friends asked her to teach them the practice. Even the doctor who treated Ms. Lu supports her practicing Falun Gong.
