(Clearwisdom.net) On July 4, the Chinese Communist city government operatives in Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, harassed and illegally arrested many local Falun Gong practitioners.

Around 7 a.m. on July 4, Mr. Huang Wei, a practitioner, went downstairs from his home to do some work. He was arrested by a plainclothes policeman stationed outside the residential building. The officer was from the Hedong Police Station.

Later, seven officers from the Changan District Police Department and Hedong Police Station ransacked Mr. Wei's home, searched his child's schoolbag, and found a booklet entitled "Announcement by the China Interim Government." Mr. Huang had broken no laws, and they did not find any evidence of a crime, but they nonetheless arrested his wife, Hao Qiuyan.

The police also searched Mr. Huang's office and took his computer. A staff member working in the same office was also arrested because she was a Falun Gong practitioner. The officer from the Hedong Police Station indicated that he was arresting people "blacklisted" by the city police department.

In the evening on the same day, all three practitioners were taken to the detention center near the Qunan storage facility in Shijiazhuang City.

On the morning of July 4, practitioner Ms. Xiu Chi was taken from her home by officers from the Nanyang Police Station in the Changan District. These policemen entered her home illegally and took Falun Dafa books, truth clarification materials, and CDs. Currently, she is imprisoned somewhere in the Changan District.

The same group of policemen also went to Mr. Zhen Xuan's home, seeking to arrest him. But Mr. Zhen and his family members resisted. The incident caught the attention of his neighbors, one of whom remarked, "How come only good citizens get arrested?"The police knew that they had no legal right to arrest Mr. Zhen and decided to leave him alone. However, they indicated that they might come back. These policemen went to many other practitioners' homes, but because the doors were locked, they were not able to get in.

Around 6 a.m. on July 4, five officers from the Fenglu Police Station in Shijiazhuang went to Ms. Li Huixin's home. Ms. Li is the older sister of Ms. Li Huiqi, whom the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecuted to death. The police pried open the safety door to the home, arrested Ms. Li, and took away her child's computer used for school, along with other items.

Around 8 p.m. on July 3, over 02 people--including policemen Wang Dianliang, Li Zhongqiu, and Zhang Ruixu from the Jiananlu Police Station and political director Xue Jianjun and Zhao Jungqang from the Qiaodong District Police Department Shijiazhuang--arrested practitioner Mr. Han Junhong. His home was ransacked and he was moved to the police station on Jianan Road. However, he managed to escape before daybreak the next day. Now his home is surrounded by plainclothes police.

Mr. Lu Hugang, a practitioner born on August 9, 1970, lived in the Qiaodong District of Shijiazhuang. On July 4, he was taken away by policemen Wang Mingjie, Yin Hang, and Yan Qijun, all from the Taoyuan Police Station in Qiaodong District of Shijiazhuang. They ransacked his home, taking his computer and CDs which were used for clarifying the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong.

Additional practitioners arrested on July 4 included Cui Lixin, Wang Guilan, Shen Manliang, Liu Yanhong, and four others whose names are unknown. However, one of the four lived in the Yandong Residential Area and three others in the Huayao Eighth District of Shijiazhuang.

Dr. Li Huiyun's home, located in Suite1104 of the Professional Building in Shijiazhuang, was ransacked on July 4 around 10 a.m. by officers from the Nanchang Police Station. According to reports, the arrests were ordered by the Qiaosi District Police Department targeting people they considered to be important.

Around 5 a.m. in the morning of July 4, more than ten policemen from the Changan District of Shijiazhuang, pretending to deliver an item by express mail, ransacked Mr. Du Changqing's home. They took his computer, a laptop, a camera, and other items.

Another practitioner, Ms. Huo Junmei, who lives on Meiji Street in Changyun District, refused to open her door to the police. As a result, they watched her home from a nearby area.

According to reports, the Chinese Communist city government had ordered the arrests of all practitioners on their "blacklist" on the morning of July 4. This decision came from the city police department and required all local police stations to carry out the order by going door-to-door. They were ordered to arrest anyone who was found possessing even a piece of paper containing Falun Gong information.
