(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhou Hongbo from Hujitumo Town, Dorbod Mongol Autonomous County, Daqing City, was deceived into going to the Hujitumo Town Central Elementary School by deputy principal Yao Juxiang, Mr. Zhou's former classmate, on July 12, 2011. Yao collaborated with the town's judicial bureau and the police station to lure Mr. Zhou to the old Daqing City Party School to be persecuted.
The day before, on July 11, at around 2:00 p.m., Hujitumo Town Judicial Bureau head Chen Yong and Yang Shuangjun had gone to Mr. Zhou's home.
At noon on July 12, Hujitumo Town Central Elementary School deputy principal Yao Juxiang asked Mr. Zhou to come to the school to sign some documents, so Mr. Zhou went there after lunch. He called his family at around 1:40 p.m. saying that the judicial bureau and the school authorities wouldn't allow him to go home.
Mr. Zhou's family went to the school to demand his release. Seven officers from the judicial bureau carried Mr. Zhou to a car and sent him to the old Daqing City Party School, the name currently being changed to Driving School. It was learned that Heilongjiang Province and Daqing City 610 Offices were involved in this arrest.
On July 13, town government officials Kang Hongling and He Jingsong harassed Mr. Zhou's family at home.
Mr. Zhou Hongbo started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Prior to his practice, he suffered from neurological pain, rheumatism, arthritis and other illnesses. After practicing Falun Gong, all these illnesses disappeared. He cultivated good relationships with his neighbors, and everyone praised Falun Dafa as really good.
Around April 22, 2002, Mr. Zhou was preparing a meal at home when officers from the Taikang Police Department, along with 610 Office agents Li Shilin, Tang Huaijun and Wen Zhongge broke into his home, taking him to the Taikang County Detention Center, where he was held for 59 days. Mr. Zhou held a hunger strike and was sent to a hospital for medical treatment. When his life was in danger, the detention center officials informed his family to take him home.
On December 18, 2007 (lunar calendar), Mr. Zhou was arrested again as he spoke with people about Falun Gong. Officers Jiang Yunsheng, Bai Zhiming, Li Shilin and others from the Taikang Town Domestic Security Division conducted the arrest. They held him in the Taikang Town Detention Center for eight days, and then took him to the Suihua Forced Labor Camp for a one-year term.
