(Clearwisdom.net) On January 28, 2008, Mr. Zhai Mouchen, a Falun Gong practitioner from Zibo City, Shandong Province, was taken into custody from his workplace by officers of the State Security Division in the Zhangdian District. Afterwards, his home was searched without a warrant. Later, he was taken to the Zibo City Detention Center and brutally tortured. Mr. Zhai was sentenced to one year of forced labor and taken to the notorious Shandong Province Forced Labor Camp.

Mr. Zhai is from Mazhuang Village, Nanding Town, Zhangdian District, Zibo City. He used to be the deputy director of a Chemical Plant in his village. After he began to practice Falun Gong, he conducted himself with more tolerance and honesty. After the CCP launched the persecution of Falun Gong, Mr. Zhai was repeatedly ill treated. His family also suffered tribulations that most people would find hard to bear.

As early as 2000, Mr. Zhai was sentenced to three years of forced labor and detained in the Zibo Forced Labor Camp and then the Shandong Province Forced Labor Camp. During that time, he was shocked with electric batons many times. In Zibo Forced Labor Camp, his legs developed a deep ulceration due to electric shock injuries that didn't heal for a long time. Soon after he was released from his three-year sentence, he was taken to the brainwashing center run by the local 610 Office. They attempted to force him to give up his belief. After this failed, he was taken to the "Transformation" Center, which is actually a brainwashing center, located in the Shandong Province Forced Labor Camp. He was detained there for one and a half years.

Mr. Zhai has an 80-year-old mother and two school-age children. The mental and physical pressure brought to bear on this family by the CCP is unimaginably severe.
