Li Changqing, director of the Mudanjiang 610 Office, confiscated 12,900 yuan that Ms. Zhang had with her, and did not issue a receipt. Ms. Zhang began to feel faint and was released after paying a 2,000 fine and 5,000 deposit, which was never refunded. While Ms. Zhang was locked in the center, Li extorted tens of thousands of yuan from her family members.
