Practitioner Ms. Zhang Hejun Arrested in Hengyang City, Hunan Province

May 04, 2008 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Fifty-two-year-old Ms. Zhang Hejun, a Falun Gong practitioner from Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province, was an employee of Xianghuoju Piston Works. Ms. Zhang was arrested and sentenced to five years of imprisonment in 2000. Her employment was terminated. While in the Hunan Province Women's Prison, she was subjected to different forms of mental torment and physical abuse, including forced brainwashing; being denied normal interactions with relatives; being closely watched around the clock; being forced to perform hard labor for extended periods of time, and other abuses.

Because of ongoing harassment by the authorities, Ms. Zhang decided to leave home in 2007. Someone followed her on April 11, 2008. Zhuzhou police agents illegally arrested Ms. Zhang while she was working as a babysitter at her employer's home in Hengyang City.

Her employer refused to open the door. The police broke down the first door and then the second door. As soon as they barged in, a police officer slapped Ms. Zhang twice in the face. Four police officers then wrestled her to the floor and tied her tightly with ropes. Hengyang police officials then searched the employer's home and made a huge mess of things without showing any valid legal warrant.

Zhang Hejun shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" as police took her away. This attracted the attention of the neighbors who, seeing the broken doors and the big mess in the room, said angrily, "How can you policemen behave like bandits?"

The police hurriedly took Ms. Zhang Hejun away.
