Falun Gong Practitioner Gai Guangqi Arrested, His Shop Ransacked
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Gai Guangqi, who is in his fifties, is a villager from Nanbo Village, Jiangtong Township, Laiyang City, in Shandong Province. At around 10:00 a.m. on August 4, 2008, the Jiangtong Police Station Chief Gui Jianming led twenty policemen to break into Mr. Gui's shop, which is connected with his home. They drove off the customers, then several policemen forcibly held Mr. Gao on the ground and covered his mouth so that he could not speak. They grabbed his hair and twisted his legs and forced him into the police car. They detained him at the Laiyang Detention Center. Gai Guangqi's wife witnessed this arrest. An evil policeman shouted at her, "Don't move. Otherwise, we will arrest you too!" Mr. Gai's wife was so sad that she just sat on the chair, but this policeman yelled at her, "You must not sit here!"
Then the policemen ransacked Mr. Gai Guangqi's home. They stole a lot of cash and an MP3 player that is worth several hundred yuan. In addition, they took away several recorders and a large recorder and some other personal possessions, without showing any legal paperwork granting them permission to conduct a search. Then they overturned two cash boxes and removed a large amount of money, leaving some money behind on the counter. They ransacked the store, throwing the groceries all over the place and left the shelves in disarray. They threw white paper on the ground, desk and bed. In addition, they even threw the fan two meters away. They messed up the desk, cabinet and bed and broke the door. They put an old cabinet on the bed sheet, making the bed sheet dirty. They pried open some boxes that had not been opened for more than ten years. They threw the blankets all over the room and overturned the cabinets. The whole house was a complete mess after they ransacked it.
Mr. Gai Guangqi started practicing Falun Gong in 1996 and benefited both physically and mentally. As a result, the large number of illnesses that he suffered from disappeared. During the past few years he had quietly spoken about the beauty and sacredness of Falun Gong to his relatives and friends. All the people that he knows think that he is a righteous and compassionate person.
Since the Communist regime started persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, because he refused to give up practicing Falun Gong , he has been arrested and tortured many times. However, he still peacefully and diligently persists in clarifying the truth, and tells the police not to persecute Falun Gong.
