(Clearwisdom.net) On the evening of December 15, 2011, Mr. Zhang Junan was driving his taxicab when he was arrested by officers from Yihe Police Station of Yingcheng, Hubei Province. The police impounded his car.
Honest Taxi Driver of High Integrity
Mr. Zhang is a Falun Gong practitioner who believes in Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance, and possesses high moral standards. In June 2005, he found gold accessories worth of over 100,000 yuan, (almost $16,000 USD) which was left on the back seat of his taxi by a Taiwanese customer. He made several inquiries in an attempt to find the owner. Eventually, he brought the lost property to the Yueyuan Community's Estate Office in Yingcheng, and returned the valuables in person to the concerned owner.
The owner was deeply moved by Mr. Zhang's integrity and refusal to accept a reward. The owner spoke to the media including the local TV station, local radio station and newspapers, including the Chutianjin Newspaper. However, the media omitted the fact that Mr. Zhang was a Falun Gong practitioner. This kindhearted person is currently being detained and persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Harsh Conditions for His Family
The day after his arrest, his family went to the Yihe Police Station to demand the release of Mr. Zhang and his taxicab. That afternoon, the authorities released the car but not Mr. Zhang, who was transferred to the Yingcheng Second Detention Center, where he is currently being held.
Mr. Zhang's wife requires assistance to walk. She has no personal income, and can't perform even routine housework. Mr. Zhang was the only person who took care of her, their child in school, and his 70-year-old mother. The whole family lived solely on his income from driving the taxi, which was shared with his business partner.
Since Mr. Zhang's family couldn't survive without him, his mother and wife, along with relatives and friends' help, went to the Yihe Police Station to request his release. They were driven away in a harsh manner by police station authorities. Since his wife couldn't walk, the two of them could only sit near the police station wrapped in a quilt.
