(Clearwisdom.net) On October 11, 2007, one day before the end of his illegal seven-year imprisonment, a Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Cai Zidong in Shiyan City, Hubei Province was unlawfully and secretly transferred to a brainwashing center in Wuhan City and persecuted for an extended period of time.

Seven years ago, due to his refusal to renounce his faith and for his perseverance in cultivating in Falun Dafa, Cai Zidong was illegally sentenced to seven years of imprisonment by the Shiyan City Court in Hubei Province. During the term, he was imprisoned in the Qinduankou Prison in Hubei Province and the Fanjiatai Prison in Shayang City, Hubei Province and severely mistreated there. These horrible seven years damaged Cai Zidong's body and mind, and also caused huge suffering for his family. His mother passed away in misery and bitterness during his imprisonment.

Cai Zidong's illegal term was over on October 12, 2007. His family had already contacted the Fanjiatai prison many days in advance. The prison officials had said all along that they would definitely return Cai Zidong to his family but had no intention of doing so. When the family went to the prison on the release date to pick up Cai Zidong, the prison went back on their word and said that according to a secret order from the 610 Office, none of the Falun Gong practitioners who had completed their terms were allowed to go home. Instead, they would be transferred to the 610 Office at the practitioners' residential area, which would then process their cases. So one day before the end of his term, Cai Zidong was sent to a "legal education center" (a brainwashing center that persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners) in Wuhan City by the 610 office at Shiyan City and imprisoned there. They refused to tell the family of his whereabouts and how long he would be imprisoned.

After being unlawfully sentenced and persecuted for seven years, Cai Zidong was once again detained by the 610 office. This was done without following any legal procedures.

Cai Zidong worked in the Design Department of the Dongfeng Automobile Company in Shiyan City. He graduated from Harbin Industrial University, and he is now forty years old. Before his imprisonment, he had been living with his family in a residential area of the No.13 Middle School in Shiyan City. His father was the Principal and Communist Party Secretary of the No.13 Middle School and is now retired at home. In 1994, Cai Zidong and his mother attended Teacher Li Hongzhi's Falun Dafa lectures. Later, Cai Zidong became the head of the Falun Dafa Assistance Center in Shiyan City.

The Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999. Cai Zidong was arrested and imprisoned in the year 2000. In 2002, he was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment. He was sent to the Qinduankou prison in Hubei Province. On March 20, 2007, he was transferred to the Fanjiatai Prison in Shayang, Hubei Province, where he was beaten and tortured.

During the seven years of imprisonment, Cai Zidong was cruelly beaten by criminals and guards many times, and his health became very poor. The 610 Office forcibly took him to a brainwashing center the day before his seven-year term was over, which has no legal basis.
