Congress of the United States
Washington, DC 20515

April 6, 2006

Zhang Zhongwei
Governor of Sichuan Province
C/O Foreign Affairs Office of Sichuan Province
100 East 3 block, Circle 1
Chengdu, Sichuan, P.R. China

Dear Governor Zhang:

We are again writing to you on behalf of Ms. Sarah Liang, a United States citizen whose mother, Ms. Yuju Yuan and her brother, Mr. Jinhui Liang, were arrested for being Falun Gong practitioners by Luzhou Police on July 19, 2005. We previously wrote to you about this matter on September 22, 2005, but have not yet heard from you.

As we wrote you before, we have learned from Ms. Liang that her mother began practicing Falun Gong in 1995. Her continued practice has resulted in her home being searched a number of times, her telephone line being tapped and her right to visit her daughter in Hong Kong denied. Ms Yuju Yuan has now been in Zizhong Nanmu Temple Female Labor Camp for more than 7 months.

In addition, her brother, Mr. Jinhui Liang, has a history of mental illness. Ms. Liang worries that the conditions in the detention center and labor camp will result in immeasurable damage to the long-term health of her brother. He has now been detained for more than eight months and Ms. Liang has been prevented from visiting him. Meanwhile, Ms. Liang's nearly 70-year-old father who suffers from high blood pressure is now alone and unattended because his wife and son have been imprisoned.

We ask that you release Ms. Yuan Yuju and Mr. Liang Jinhui immediately. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
