(Clearwisdom.net) The Yilan County Public Security Bureau Chief Wang Qingfeng and Deputy Chief Li Baihe ordered the county's National Security and police officers to illegally arrest Mr. Chen Jizhong and his sister, Ms. Chen Jihuan, from Yonghe Village, Daotai Township, Yilan County, Heilongjiang Province.

As of January 19, 2010, Mr. Chen and Ms. Chen had been detained in the criminal section of the Yilan County National Security Brigade for 50 days, which is the maximum legal limit for detention. However, they still were not released.

The brother and sister had been detained many times since the beginning of the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party. In 2001, Mr. Chen was sentenced to three years of forced labor. In 2002, he was sentenced to a five-year prison term for refusing to give up his belief in Falun Gong.

The police have also repeatedly threatened his wife, who became mentally unstable and unable to take care of herself. Accompanied by a relative, his wife went to the Public Security Bureau to ask for her husband's release, but was so frightened by the police that she fell to the floor and couldn't stop twitching. Without a family member to care for her, she is in grave danger.

Many villagers have sympathized with the brother and sister for experiencing this unjust treatment and have denounced the criminal acts of the Yilan County Public Security Bureau and related organizations. The Yonghe village cadres and Mr. Chen's relatives asked the Yilan County Public Security to release the brother and sister. However, the police from the Public Security deceived them by saying that it wasn't up to them and that the case is being reviewed.
