(Minghui.org) Many Falun Gong practitioners from Yinchuan City, Ningxia Autonomous Region have recently been illegally arrested and harassed. At this writing, three of them are still being held.

Mr. Zheng Yongxin and Ms. Yang Jie Arrested

On August 28, Chen Jianhua and Li Yulan teamed up with a group of police officers from the Helanshan Police Station and arrested Mr. Zheng Yongxin and Ms. Yang Jie, a married couple from the Xixia District. Their home was ransacked and they were sent to the Yinchuan Detention Center.

Mr. Zheng Yongxin used to be employed with the Yinchuan Power Bureau. Over the course of the persecution, had been detained at the Ningxia Forced Labor Camp and Guyuan Prison for eight years, and he was also fired from his job. On November 11, 2007, when his term was due, Mr. Zheng was taken by people from the Ningxia 610 Office to a brainwashing center for further persecution. In early 2008, he finally returned home. In June 2008, when the Olympic torch passed through Ningxia City, many Falun Gong practitioners were arrested and harassed. Mr. Zheng was also arrested and held for over ten days in the Yinchuan City Detention Center.

Ms. Yang Jie is from Zhongwei City, Ningxia Autonomous Region. She is 40 years old and used to work at the Zhongwei Life Insurance Company. Since 1997, when she began to practice Falun Dafa, she has undergone tremendous changes both mentally and physically. However, from July 20,1999, when the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) began to persecute Falun Gong, until 2009, she has spent most of her time in forced labor camps and prisons. She has been subjected to cruel torture. A few times, Ms. Yang was released from the prison or forced labor camp at the brink of death.

Ms. Chen Hua Arrested

On August 28, Zhang Anzhong, Wu Jianguo and others from the Domestic Security Department arrested Ms. Chen Hua who lives at Xinqing District in Yinchuan Autonomous Region. She is currently detained at the Yinchuan Detention Center. Police officers confiscated her computer, printer and other items.

Ms. Chen Hua is a retired accountant. In February 2011, she was held at Yinchuan Detention Center for several days.
