(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Zhu Ya'nian and his wife, Ms. Jillian Audi, along with Mr. Gu Hongliang, and Mr. Mao Tiejun from Jingjiang were arrested at 9:00 a.m. on August 21, 2012. They were detained at the Jiangshan Hotel and Jiangping Hotel in Jingjiang. Earlier that day, practitioner Mr. Gong Youliang, who is in his sixties, was arrested as well. His current whereabouts are unknown.
Mr. Zhu Ya'nian, 68, was an employee at the Jingjiang Municipal Bus Station. He started practicing Falun Gong in 1997, after which all his illnesses disappeared. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong in July 1999, he was forced to give up his cultivation under huge pressure. His illnesses returned and he realized that only Falun Dafa could save him, so he resumed his cultivation. He continued being kind toward others, and told people the good things about practicing Falun Gong, hoping that people will have nice futures for themselves.
At 9:00 a.m. on August 21, over ten officers from the Jingjiang 610 Office, the Jingjiang Domestic Security Team, and the Chengnan Police Station in Jingjiang arrived at his home. They ransacked the home without showing a search warrant. They confiscated all his satellite equipment, two computers, a printer, a cell phone, mp3 and mp5 players, Dafa books, and other Dafa materials. Mr. Zhu and his wife were arrested. Practitioner Ms. Jiang Aidi, 63, who was visiting Mr. Zhu at that time was also arrested. Currently, the three are being detained at the Jiangshan Hotel and Baoda Hotel. They are not allowed to eat or sleep. Their families are concerned about their health.
Practitioner Mr. Gu Hongliang, in his fifties, runs his own business. He previously had many diseases, but all disappeared after he started practicing Falun Gong. He spent only 12 yuan (U.S. $2) to buy the book Zhuan Falun, and did the exercises. His miraculous changes were well known by others. Since Mr. Gu obtained his second life from Dafa, he took it upon himself to spread Dafa to others, so that they also could receive the benefits. At 9:00 a.m. on August 21, over ten CCP officials arrived at his home and ransacked it without showing a search warrant. They also searched his shop. The officers confiscated his satellite equipment, computer, USB drives, Dafa books, and other Dafa materials. They arrested Mr. Gu and put him in the Jiangshan Hotel. His family is worried about his health.
Practitioner Mr. Mao Tiejun, in his forties, is director of the Jianjiang Hospitality Service Office. He follows the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Everyone in his office knew that he practiced Falun Gong, and his behavior and virtue were highly regarded by them. At 9:00 a.m. on August 21, over ten agents from the Jingjiang 610 Office and the Chengnan Police Station went to the Hospitality Service Office and took away all of Mr. Mao's belongings. He was detained at the Jiangshan Hotel. His wife, parents, and child are all worried about him. His employees also want him to return quickly.
Practitioner Ms. Du Cuihua was arrested on August 22. Her situation is unknown.
