Arrest and Detention of Ms. Zhu Chunju from Fangzheng County, Heilongjiang Province
(Clearwisdom.net) On the morning of August 16, 2011, Domestic Security Division head Lu Tongjin in Fangzheng County, Heilongjiang Province, Domestic Security Division deputy head Bai Wenjie, and two other policemen illegally arrested Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Yang Zhongyou and Ms. Zhu Chunju (58 years old) from Tianmen Township. In addition, they arrested Mr. Yang Zhongyou's sister, Ms. Yang Zhongqin, that same day. Mr. Yang Zhongyou and Ms. Yang Zhongqin have been released; but Ms. Zhu Chunju is still being held in the Second Detention Center.
The couple lives in Tianmen Township and they started Falun Gong practice in 1998. Their families have been persecuted over the past ten-plus years. Their three children were held in a forced labor camp, and the couple was detained multiple times.
On the morning of August 16, 2011, the above-named persecutors ransacked the couple's home and arrested them. Their son Mr. Yang Xueqiu left home to avoid further persecution.
At about 11 o'clock that same day, the police arrested Mr. Yang's sister, Ms. Yang Zhongqin. As mentioned above, Mr. Yang Zhongyou and Ms. Yang Zhongqin were released that night. The police used the excuse of finding Falun Gong related materials in their home to arrest and detain Ms. Zhu Chunju.
Moreover, the police went to their home multiple times to demand their son's whereabouts. They also questioned their neighbors as to whether they had seen the couple distributing truth-clarification materials and hanging banners.
Officials are now trying to sentence Ms. Zhu Chunju.
