Falun Dafa Practitioner Hu Linggen from Yangpu District, Shanghai City, Secretly Arrested
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Hu Linggen is an employee of Shanghai Silicon Steel Sheet Factory. On the night of April 16, 2008, police from Yangpu District, Shanghai City secretly searched his home and took him away.
At 7:00 p.m. on April 16, 2008, a group of people broke into Mr. Hu Linggen's home. Because they were afraid other residents would see them, they drew the curtains, closed the door, and then searched for so-called "evidence." Since they did not find anything, they rushed into the room of Mr. Hu's mother, despite the family's objections. They lifted the mattress where Mr. Hu's niece sleeps. They still did not find any evidence. However, they did not give up. They presented a criminal detention warrant that they had prepared in advance to arrest Hu Linggen on a trumped-up charge. Policemen Wang Shoupeng and Ye Hao, from Yangpu District, Shanghai City, signed the warrant.
That night, Mr. Hu Linggen was working in the factory. That same group of people hurried to the Shanghai Silicon Steel Sheet Factory from his home. They deceived Mr. Hu, saying they wanted to have a "conversation" with him. It was 10:00 p.m. When Mr. Hu walked to the rear entrance of the factory, they forcibly pushed him into a vehicle they had parked there in advance. They then drove him directly to the detention center at Changyang Road, Yangpu District.
Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Hu Linggen, 47 years of age, lives at Apt. 500, of 3 Fengcheng Third Village, on Yanjixi Road, in Yangpu District, Shanghai. Mr. Hu was detained in a labor camp for two years, from 2001 to 2003, where he was persecuted with torture, brainwashing, and forced labor. Since going home in 2003, he has been harassed by officials from the Yangpu District 610 Office, the local police, and personnel from the neighborhood committee.
According to the police, Mr. Hu's arrest was based on "evidence." Actually, if they really had so-called "evidence," why did they search his home, first, before arresting him? If these "law enforcers" really conducted themselves in accordance with the law, could they tell which laws Mr. Hu Linggen has violated? Why did these law enforcers "enforce the law" only at night and in secret?
