1. [Jilin City, Jilin Province] Five Falun Dafa Practitioners Including Ms. Mu Chunhong Arrested
In the afternoon of February 12, 2007, five Falun Dafa practitioners (Ms. Mu Chunhong, Ms. Zhao Yingjie, Ms. Liu Yuhe, Mr. Zhao Guoxing and Ms. Wang Liqiu) from Jilin City were arrested by the police from Xiangyang Station of the Chuanying District Police Department, Jilin City and the State Security Division of the Jilin City Police Department at a rental location near the Xiangyang Market, Chuanying District, Jilin City.
On that same day, at 6:00 p.m., while Ms. Mu Chunhong was riding a bike past the Xiangyang Market across from the Xiangyang Local Police Station, three policemen came out from a passenger sedan and knocked her to the ground. They then handcuffed her and forced her into the sedan. Ms. Mu Chunhong shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good." Later on she was taken to the Xiangyang Local Police Station.
Mr. Zhao Guoxing heard that Ms. Mu Chunhong might have had an accident, so he wanted to go take a look together with another practitioner. They did not return. It is speculated that they might have been arrested by the ambushing policemen.
On the afternoon of February 13, Ms. Wang Liqiu went there to look for Ms. Mu Chunhong who had been out for a whole night, and she was arrested by the same policemen.
The arrested practitioners' family members have asked the related departments for their release, but these departments have all dodged responsibility. Now it is known that these five practitioners have been forcefully taken to the Jilin City Detention Center.
