(Clearwisdom.net) (By correspondents in Shandong) Several Falun Dafa practitioners from Gaomi City, Shandong Province were recently arrested. On the afternoon of September 25, 2009, policemen from Dongguan Police Station arrested Ms. Shan Huilian, who is in her sixties, at her home. She is now being held in the Gaomi Detention Center.

On September 22, 2009, Ms. Shan Huilian, Ms. Zhong Shulan and Wang Dejun's mother went to Ms. Xu Xiaolan's house in Lijiazhuang, Kangzhuang County. Soon after they arrived, ten plainclothes policemen broke into Ms. Xu's house and took away some personal items without permission. The police then arrested the four women and took them to the Kangzhuang Police Station. They were released after 4 p.m. that day.

On September 13, 2009, Ms.Wang Yuzhen went to the farmers' market to tell people about Falun Gong and help them quit the CCP. She was arrested by officers from the Dongguan Police Station. Her house was ransacked and Falun Gong materials were taken from her home. Because she kept shouting "Falun Dafa is good" in the detention center, Ms. Wang was put in solitary confinement for more than ten hours by policeman Li Xingxian. She was forced to sit in a metal chair with her hands and legs bound together.

On the afternoon of September 17, 2009, Ms. Mao Yongchun was released from police custody. By the time she got home, she was nearly dead. Ms. Mao had poliomyelitis when she was a child, and she had an operation in the Weifang College Hospital in 1976. She was left physically disabled in her left leg because of poor blood circulation. However, after she practiced Falun Gong, her blood circulation became normal and she became completely healthy. On February 28, 2009, she was arrested by police from the Nanguan Police Station and held there for 205 days. Her physical and mental health deteriorated, and her left leg became numb again. She is unable to look after herself due to the abuse she suffered while in detention.

On the afternoon of September 24, practitioner Wang Xianglan was released after 25 days of imprisonment. Ms. Wang Dejun and her husband are still being held in the Gaomi Detention Center.

Ms. Guan Ruijuan, a 57-year-old farmer, was sent to the Gaomi Detention Center by officers from Yaogezhuang Police Station for being a Falun Gong practitioner.
