(Clearwisdom.net) On July 27, Nankai District, Tianjin City practitioner Mr. Geng Dong was arrested at home by the police from the Xuefu Street Police Station. After his release on July 28, he was arrested again on July 29 and his personal computer was confiscated. Currently, Mr. Geng may be detained at the Nankai District Detention Center. Mr. Geng was arrested after authorities at the Tianjin City Police Department received secret orders to "severely suppress Falun Gong" before the Olympics when the Olympics torch relay was passing through Tianjin City on August 1 and 2.

Three days before he was arrested, Mr. Geng's wife gave birth. She was weak and needed care. His mother, shocked by the repeated arrests of her son, had a stroke. She can no longer speak, continues to drool and has lost the ability to take care of herself. Mr. Geng's father is in tears over the repeated loss of his son.

Mr. Geng Dong was a volunteer assistant at one of the practice sites at Tianjin University before the persecution began in 1999. After July 20, 1999, Mr. Geng was brutally mistreated numerous times. In March 2001, he was illegally sentenced to a forced labor camp for two and a half years by Tianjin City authorities. In January 2004, he was detained after publishing a "solemn statement" on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website. Also in January 2004, Mr. Geng took photos to expose the Zhuhai City Brainwashing Center located in Zhuhai City's Fumin Hotel. For this, he was sentenced to a forced labor camp for two years. He was released in May 2006 after being detained longer than the scheduled term.

Mr. Geng Dong's story is just one of the countless cases of persecution carried out by the CCP. According to incomplete figures, more than 8000 practitioners have been arrested since the second half of 2007. We hope that the international community will pay attention to the human rights violations in China and help end the crimes still being committed there.
