( Mr. Wang Dejun was arrested on August 31, 2009 by 610 Office personnel from Weifang Gaomi City, who collaborated with the Jiangzhuang Town Police and the Nanguan Police of Gaomi City to arrest Mr. Wang. He was illegally detained at the Gaomi City Detention Center for more than a month, and was put in solitary confinement and ordered to sit on an iron chair. He was later sent to the Eighth Ward of the Number Two Men's Forced Labor Camp in Zhangqiu City, Shandong Province, for one year. He became very weak as a result of being subjected to torture at the forced labor camp.

Mr. Wang knows that he is innocent, and that believing in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is not against the law. He has been telling people the benefits he experienced from practicing Falun Gong, and how it brings hope to China and the rest of the world. Because Mr. Wang firmly believes in Dafa and refused to be "transformed", he was transferred to the Third Ward by the general education staff in January 2010. Mr. Wang was a healthy person, but after being tortured repeatedly, he experienced heart problems and high blood pressure, and was twice sent to the hospital emergency room. His family is worried about his health condition.

Mr. Wang's family and friends went to visit him after his arrest at the detention center and forced labor camp several times, but were turned away. On March 8, 2010, his family was finally allowed to meet with him at the forced labor camp's visitation hall. When he walked into the hall he was held by an assistant, and had to put his other hand against the wall to support himself as he walked slowly. He looked pale and weak. There was a glass window that separated Mr. Wang from his mother and wife. His hand was trembling when he held the phone receiver to talk to them, and his voice was very weak.

We urge people around the world to extend a helping hand to Falun Gong practitioners such as Mr. Wang Dejun who are illegally detained. We also hope that more people will expose the bad deeds of the persecutors. We sincerely hope the persecutors will awaken to the truth, stop torturing practitioners, and end this unprecedented persecution.
