On the morning of March 1, 2007, more than a dozen police officers from the Guilin Street Station and Domestic Security agents arrested the four family members and took away two big cases of Falun Dafa books and a photo of the founder of Falun Dafa. The police said viciously, "We will force your son to go through a divorce, stop your daughter's wedding, and break up your family!"
Ms. Zhang and her husband were both sentenced to one year of forced labor. Her husband was taken to the Chaoyanggou Labor Camp. Ms. Zhang Zhengrong was taken to the Heizuizi Labor Camp.
