Elder Brother Imprisoned and Younger Brother Arrested

On August 18, 2011, Zhang Zhenhua, deputy head of the Wuzhong District Police Department 610 Office, arrested Mr. Lu Jun and ransacked his home for no reason. Mr. Lu's family asked around to locate him, but no one knew where he was. His parents, in their 70s, waited at the Wuzhong Police Department for more than a week. The guard wouldn't allow them to come close to the gate, and the officers involved or officers in charge would not come out to talk with them. The only thing they were told was to wait for the notice at home.

On September 4, 2011, the family received the notification of Mr. Lu Jun's forced labor sentence. The term was one year and three months and started on September 2.

No Way to Appeal

It was a cruel blow to Mr. Lu's parents and his family. When Mr. Lu Tong was arrested, Mr. Lu's mother and wife went to the courthouse, the police station, the police department, etc. They were threatened, intimidated and deceived. This time, Mr. Lu's mother went to the police department, the appeals office, and the Procuratorate to appeal, but nothing came of it.

Mr. Lu's father can no longer walk and his mother is wasting away.
