Date of Most Recent Arrest:
Most recent place of detention:
Mr. Zhang Zhongjie was a practitioner from Linfen City, Shanxi Province.
He was illegally dismissed from his public position because he refused to write a "Guarantee Statement" [to no longer practice Falun Dafa]. Under such a difficult situation, he still kept clarifying the truth to people. Nevertheless, the police illegally arrested him. He successfully escaped during interrogation, and was thus forced to roam around, homeless, in order to avoid further persecution. During that time, he went to Beijing on many occasions to safeguard Dafa, and did a lot of truth-clarification work with his fellow practitioners. Before the Spring Festival in 2000, the police suddenly notified his family to identify his body.
