Seventeen Students from Harbin Arrested
At about 11 a.m. on March 20, 2008, a group of plainclothes police officers suddenly rushed into a school at 55 Pinggong Street, Nangang District in Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. The police took away 17 students who were attending class, and confiscated two computers.
The students' parents are Falun Dafa practitioners who are being detained and persecuted. Some students' parents were persecuted to death. Some students have become orphans. Under the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution, these children were forced to drop out of school. They became homeless and destitute.
Later, some kind people took them in. However, within just one month the CCP found out, and dispatched agents to make inquiries. Finally, they rushed into their school and illegally took away the students.
Of the seventeen students, thirteen have been released. Four boys are being detained. They are Zhang Bo, Wang Ruihuan, Song Zhanlong and Yu Chao (or Mao Jinhui). These students' lives are in danger again.
