(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners Ms. He Xiufang, Ms. Yang Juxiang, and Mr. Wang Shuxun are from Longxi County, Gansu Province. Police officer Lu Dechang arrested them while they were distributing truth-clarifying materials in September 2010. The Longxi Court held a hearing for them in December, and they are now detained at Jiuzhou Women’s Prison and Tianshui Prison. During a recent visit, their family found that Ms. He was in poor health, and Ms. Yang’s hair had turned completely gray. Agents from the 610 Office asked Ms. Wang’s family to help "transform" her, but they refused to do so.

Ms. He, Ms. Yang, and Mr. Wang drove to Fuxing Town in Longxi County on the afternoon of September 13, 2010, to distribute Falun Gong materials. Lu Dechang, head of Longxi County Domestic Security Division, along with and several agents, arrested them at Gaotaishan Village in Fuxing Town.

Lu led several agents from the Northwest Aluminum Company Security Division and the Xijiao Police Station (including Dou Lianwen and Gao Pengqi) to search Ms. He’s home at 2:00 a.m. that night, however, they did not find anything. The next day they went to ransack her home, and confiscated a computer that belonged to her family. The agents also confiscated a computer and other items from Mr. Wang’s home.

On the morning of September 27, 2010, Lu Dechang and several officers ransacked Mr. Wang's home again. When Wu Yuyi (Mr. Wang's wife) tried to stop them, Lu arrested her and took her to the Longxi County Police Department. Lu and deputy police department head Dou Menglian reported this case to the Dingxi City Government. Chen Zongyao, a Dingxi City Domestic Security Division officer, and another police officer came to Longxi County to monitor this case.

A hearing was held in the Longxi Court at 9:30 a.m. on December 8. Ms. He was sentenced to four years of imprisonment, while Ms. Yang and Mr. Wang were sentenced to three-and-a-half years each. Ms. He and Ms. Yang were sent to Jiuzhou Women's Prison in Gansu Province. Mr. Wang was sent to Tianshui Prison.

When Ms. Yang's relatives went to visit her in jail in late 2011, they found that her hair had turned completely gray.

Mr. Wang's family went to visit him in late 2011 as well. On the way to the prison, they received a phone call from agents at the Dingxi 610 Office asking them to “work with” them and the Tianshui Prison to "transform" Mr. Wang.

Ms. He's son and daughter went to visit her in early January 2012. Ms. He, who was already 60 years old, seemed to be in very poor health, and she cried a lot while visiting with her family. Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials in Longxi County told Ms. He's son to betray a Falun Gong practitioner in exchange for his mother's release, but he refused to do so.
