On around April 15, Ms. Zhang Shuyun, who is about 45 years old, from Dongti Village, Shangkou Township, Shouguang City, was followed by police officers from Shouguang and was then arrested and detained in the Danyaoku Brainwashing Center.
Afterwards, people from the Shouguang Domestic Security Brigade arrested Mr. Zhang Huiliang and his wife, Ms. Zhang Huiyun, as well as Ms. Wang Xinlan from Luben Village. Two days later, Mr. Li's family members handed over cash in exchange for Mr. Li's release.
On April 17, officers from the Shangkou Township Police Station teamed up with people from the Shouguang Domestic Security Brigade. They broke into Ms. Wang Xinlan's hardware store, where they confiscated one laptop, two printers, ink cartridges, and other personal belongings. Ms. Wang's mother is 83 years old and is now home alone with nobody to take care of her. Ms. Wang also has two young daughters, one 15 and the other eight.
Also arrested from Shangkou Township were: Mr. Cheng Yutian, 70, from Shangkou Village, who was released two days after being detained, and Ms. Lin Yunying, 65, also from Shangkou Village, who was released one day after being detained.
On around April 20, a female practitioner about 65 years old from Shouguang was at the Shouguang Vegetable Fair clarifying the facts about Falun Gong when police officers arrested her. She was only released after officials extorted money from her family.
At present, Ms. Zhang Shuyun, Ms. Wang Xinlan, and Ms. Zhang Huiyun are still being held in the Shouguang Detention Center. All of them have been bound to an iron chair. Guards have tortured Ms. Wang in an iron chair for six days in a row. Guards have also tried to coerce the practitioners to curse Falun Dafa and its founder.
