(Clearwisdom.net) On October 20, 2011, about 12 Falun Gong detainees' relatives from Dalian City came to Fushun Brainwashing Center to visit their family members - Mr. Yu Changshun, Mr. Li Dehui, Mr. Zhang Guoxiang, Ms. Teng Wenzhi, Ms. Han Jiling, Ms. Wang Hui and Ms. Yang Shuwen.
On October 21, relatives of those detained practitioners came to the Domestic Security Division in Dalian City to demand the release of their family members. People with whom they met used the excuse that the person in charge was out of the office that morning. Both Mr. Zhang Guoxiang's blind mother, who is in her 80s, and Mr. Zhang's nephew, who is an orphan, came to Xianjin Police Station, hoping that they could take Mr. Zhang home.
Mr. Zhang's family brought with them a letter issued by Mr. Zhang's hometown government. It says that Mr. Zhang's family has financial difficulties, as Mr. Zhang was the only one earning the income supporting the family. The family also wanted the return of the 6,000 yuan that the police had confiscated. After repeated demands by the family, team leader Wang Hongfei from the Criminal Police Team of Xianjin Police Station agreed that the family could come back the next Monday to get the money back.
In the afternoon, they went to Jinzhou Domestic Security Division at Jinzhou City. The family was told that the person in charge, Bi Kefeng, was hospitalized and that they should to go to the Political and Judicial Committee. The Secretary of the Committee, along with Gao Mingxi, met with them. When asked about releasing Mr. Zhang, they said whether he would be released or not depended on his "performance" at Fushun Brainwashing Center.
On October 24, Mr. Zhang's mother, his nephew and others returned to Xianjin Police Station, where they were finally given 5,400 yuan that had been confiscated.

Before they left, they confiscated his laptop, cash, bank card and cellular phone.
