Mr. Wang Kaipo worked at the Bus Bureau in Kaifeng City, Henan Province. On June 12, 2004, police instructed by the 610 Office took Mr. Wang from his home because he posted Falun Dafa fliers.

The police's intention was to put him in prison. Mr. Wang has elderly parents and teenagers at home who have lived through true hardship in the past few years while Wang was being persecuted. Once again Wang has been abducted, and his family pushed into a desperate situation. His 75 year-old mother is trying her best to help explain her son's case to people.
