(Minghui.org) On the morning of October 18, 2013, the Jilin Public Security Bureau conspired with its district branches and police stations to illegally arrest over 30 Falun Gong practitioners. The Changchun Domestic Security Division was also involved in the arrests.
At 9 a.m., police ambushed the headquarters of the Wuhan Duck Neck, a prepared-food wholesaler in Chaicao Town, Jilin City. They arrested all practitioners who worked there, including the owner Mr. Zhu Yujun, his wife, and their 5-year-old daughter; Mr. Zhu's 60-year-old father; and Liu Bing, Deng Xiaobo, Zhuo Yuqing and Wang Ge.
They were detained in the Huangqitun Police Station of Chuanying District.
Mr. Liu Bing Transferred to Brainwashing Center
People who stopped by the shop for business were also arrested. Accoridng to informant sources, the police had monitored the company for a period of time. Thus, the arrests were premeditated and targeted a specific list of people.

Shortly after the arrest, Mr. Liu Bing was taken to the second floor of the Huangqitun Police Station for interrogation.

Mr. Liu Bing was later secretly transferred to the notorious Shahezi Brainwashing Center in Jilin City. When his family went to the Tongjiang Police Station to demand his release, a police officer there said, “I can't tell you anything about him because I have orders from above.”
At 9 a.m., concurrently with the above arrests, four officers from the Changyi Branch of the Public Security Bureau and the Dongjuzi Police Station broke into the Wuhan Duck Neck's sattelite shop in Yongchang District and arrested practitioner Deng Xiaobo. After interrogating him, police officers Yi and Wang (whose police number is 202332) ransacked the store and his home and confiscated many of his belongings, including a computer.
At 6 p.m., Mr. Deng was transferred to the Shahezi Brainwashing Center. Two people from the local Residential Committee were sent to monitor him.
