Falun Dafa Practitioner Zhou Chuanzhong and Family, and Other Practitioners Arrested by Police
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Zhou Chuanzhong and his family were forced to live away from their home as a result of the persecution. On the morning of February 25, 2006, about a dozen vehicles from the Yanjiao Police Department and the 610 Office from Sanhe City, Langfang District, Hebei Province suddenly surrounded the temporary home of Mr. Zhou. The police arrested Zhou Chuanzhong, Wang Shuhua, and their son, Zhou Jia. Without presenting any documents, they ransacked the house and confiscated a computer, a copy machine, Falun Dafa books, and other things. It was said that the police officers drove away with several cars full of property and also took Mr. Bai, an auto mechanic, with them.
In the process, a police officer hit Zhou Chuanzhong in the mouth and handcuffed him. On the afternoon of February 25, a police officer handcuffed Zhou Chuanzhong's hands tightly behind the back of a chair at the Yanjiao Police Department and placed a heavy club on his lap. One of the police officers who interrogated Zhou Chuanzhong said to his colleague, "He refused to say anything. Instead, he persuaded me to quit the Chinese Communist Party."
On the afternoon of February 25, the police arrested another practitioner, Zhang Lide, and ransacked his home. Zhang Lide's wife, also a Dafa practitioner, was not home and fortunately avoided being arrested. Meanwhile, practitioner Ma Weishan, 65, and Wang Yue and their spouses were also arrested. The home of Wang Yue was ransacked. Both husband and wife were sent to Sanhe Detention Center on the morning of February 26, and there has been no information about them since.
Sanhe City is just across the river from Beijing. It was said that the Ministry of Public Security sent people to put pressure on the city police department to check the Yanjiao area thoroughly. The 610 Office and government officials were also busy with urgent meetings. At the February 22 meeting of township party secretaries, village party secretaries, and people in charge of persecuting Falun Gong in each work unit, the township director said, "We have all the information on the truth-clarification materials production sites in the Yanjiao area. To arrest them and ransack the sites is just a matter of time. We will take action whenever we want."
Many of the police officers who participated in the illegal arrests and ransacking of practitioners' homes on February 25 received karmic retribution: they experienced dizziness and pain, and several had to take medicine.
