70-year-old Mr. Chen Yunchuan Detained Again After Losing Four Family Members in the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Chen Yunchuan, 70, is a practitioner from Canfangying Village, Beixindian Township, Huailai County, Hebei Province. All six members of his family are practitioners, and four of them have died as a result of the persecution. Recently, Mr. Chen was arrested again at his home.
In mid-July, 2008, officers from the Beixindian Township Police Station and the State Security Division of Huailai County broke into Mr. Chen's home. He was asked if he still practiced Falun Gong and he answered, "Yes!" The police then tried to force him to go with them but he refused. He was then forcibly pulled into a police car. Mr. Chen's whereabouts are unknown.
During the past nine years that Falun Gong has been persecuted, Mr. Chen's home has been ransacked many times and his family members have been subjected to repeated arrests and brutal torture. Three of his four children have died due to the persecution. The oldest son, Mr. Chen Aizhong, was sentenced to three years of forced labor and died at the Hehuakeng Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City on September 20, 2001. The youngest daughter, Ms. Chen Hongping, was sentenced to forced labor after both of her legs were broken during a beating. She died at the Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp on March 5, 2003. The youngest son, Mr. Chen Aili, was tortured to the verge of death at the Jidong Prison in Fengnan County, Tangshan City. He passed away on November 5, 2004. The elderly couple, Mr. Chen and his wife, Ms. Wang Liangrong, had to leave their home for one and a half years to avoid being persecuted. Ms. Wang died on August 4, 2008, while they were were living in exile.
