Middle School Teacher Liu Yanlong from Jiaohe, Jilin Province Illegally Arrested
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Liu Yanlong, a teacher at the First Middle School in Jiaohe, Jilin was arrested at his workplace on November 25, 2008.
On November 25, Pan Honglin, director of the Jiaohe 610 Office along with two officers, entered the First Middle School and illegally arrested Mr. Liu Yanlong. The perpetrators also confiscated Mr. Liu's house key, then ransacked his home. When family members went to the Domestic Security Division to ask about Mr. Liu's status, the officers claimed no knowledge of the incident.
Mr. Liu became a practitioner in1998. After practicing Falun Gong, he quickly recovered from a previous heart condition. In July 1999, when the Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Gong, Mr. Liu traveled to Beijing on December 24, 2000, in order to help share the truth about Dafa. He was arrested and sentenced to three years of forced labor.
After Mr. Liu was released, the Jiaohe Education Committee and 610 Office continued to persecute him by not allowing him to return to work. Mr. Liu refused to adopt a pessimistic attitude, so he filed a work application request for a resumption of his teaching activities. With help from other righteous people, he was allowed to resume teaching. Mr. Liu Yanlong strictly followed the standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance as a practitioner throughout his teaching career.
However, personnel from the 610 Office continued to harass Mr. Liu at work. They illegally arrested him in front of a large group of students with the excuse that they needed him for a conference. His current location and condition are not known by his family, nor by the school personnel.
The officials who participated in the persecution include the 610 Office director, Pan Honglin, Bai Mingku from the Politics and Law Committee, and others.
