Four Practitioners from Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province Have Been Taken into Custody
(Clearwisdom.net) On May 13, 2009, four practitioners from the Xuanhua District of Zhangjiakou City were illegally arrested at Liu Yongli's home. They are Yan Xiulian, Feng Yanli, Liu Yongli and Wang Minghai. Afterwards, their homes were all ransacked. However, the perpetrators were so afraid that they did not present any documents, nor did they identify where they were coming from when they were doing these wrong deeds. These practitioners' relatives don't know their whereabouts.
On May 12 and May 13, personnel from the residential committees and police stations of Xuanhua District started harassing practitioners by going to their homes or making threatening phone calls. Reportedly, on the morning of May 13, while these four practitioners were studying the Fa at Liu Yongli's home, they were found by the police and were illegally arrested. At noon, the police ransacked the practitioners' homes.
Practitioner Ms. Liu Yongli, around 40 years old, is self-employed and lives on the east side of the Xuanhua residential area. In 2002, Ms. Liu Yongli and her husband Ren Yuzhong were arrested at the same time and were sent to Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp, where they were subjected to three years of forced labor. They left behind their seven-year-old child and an elderly parent without help or supervision. During the Beijing Olympics in 2008, without consideration for Ms. Liu Yongli's elderly mother, who was by then more than eighty years old, and without considering Ms. Liu Yongli's ten-year-old son, officers from the CCP arrested Ms. Liu Yongli's husband, and sent him to a brainwashing center. They also attempted to arrest Ms. Liu Yongli. Ms. Liu Yongli's elderly mother was terrified and passed away, leaving the child alone with no one to care for him. Ms. Liu Yongli's mother did not get to see her daughter and son-in-law again before she died. Now Ms. Liu Yongli has been illegally arrested again.
Practitioner Mr. Wan Minhai, over 40 years old, was an employee at the Xuanhua Iron and Steel Factory before he was laid off for practicing Falun Gong. He lives on the east side of the Xuanhua residential area. In March 2002, he was sent to a forced labor camp because he was clarifying the truth. He was unlawfully persecuted at the Tangshan Forced Labor Camp. In recent years, he has been arrested and detained many times.
Practitioner Ms. Feng Yanli, more than 40 years old, lives on the east side of the Xuanhua residential area. She was an employee at the Xuanhua Iron and Steel Factory before she was forced to stay home because she practices Falun Gong. She has been illegally arrested and detained many times. The officers from the Dongsheng Police Department and her work security section even forced her husband to divorce her. While the Beijing Olympics were taking place, she was sent to a brainwashing center for several months.
Practitioner Ms. Yan Xiulian lives in the Shipai building of the Xuahua residential area. She was arrested by the police and was forced to write a guarantee statement.
