The Arrest of Ms. Liang Yuzhen from Heshan City, Guangdong Province
(Clearwisdom.net) At around 3 p.m. on February 25, 2009, Ms. Liang Yuzhen was arrested by police officers from Heshan City. She was reported to the police while she distributed Falun Gong informational materials in the countryside. At 9:00 p.m., her home was ransacked.
The police took Ms. Liang, whose hands were handcuffed behind her back, to her home. Only her 89-year-old grandmother was there. The police didn't show any search warrant but searched her home anyway, leaving her apartment in a mess. They also confiscated what cash she had at home and took some of the informational materials, as well as Dafa books, her brother's computer, and other items. The whole process lasted about an hour. When they were taking her away, her grandmother held her and said, "I need my granddaughter to take care of me." The police forcefully loosened the grandmother's hands and took Liang Yuzhen with them.
The police didn't have any legal documents for her arrest, to search the home, or for her detention. On the morning of February 26, a call from the Heshan Detention Center indicated that Ms. Liang was detained there. Her grandmother was so scared that she couldn't eat nor sleep. Her other family members were very worried about her.
Liang Yuzhen and her sister had been arrested in 2000. At that time, while in the detention center, Ms. Liang went on a hunger strike for over ten days. She suffered from brutal force-feeding. Later she was sentenced to two years of forced labor and suffered two years of maltreatment in Sanshui Women's Forced Labor Camp.
Since July 20, 1999, Ms. Liang and her sister have been arrested, detained, or send to forced labor several times. After she was released from the forced labor camp, she was forced to go from place to place for a long time. Police officers often went to her house to harass her. Her phone was monitored.
