(Minghui.org) Ms. Chen Xiaobing, a young nurse at Shantou Central Hospital, was arrested on February 23, 2013, by the Shantou 610 Office and Shantou Domestic Security Division staff. Officials claimed that she was arrested because she practiced Falun Gong and believed in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Ms. Chen was arrested after clarifying the truth about Falun Gong to someone.

Ms. Chen Xiaobing's mother, Ms. Chen Xuewen, is from Huaxin Village, Waisha Town, Longhu District in Shantou. She was previously in critical condition, suffering from various illnesses. At that time, her daughter was still young, and the family was in a state of collapse both economically and spiritually due to the mother’s severe illnesses. Years of medical treatment had failed to improve her condition. In 1997, Ms. Chen Xuewen began practicing Falun Gong and, amazingly, she recovered completely. Her neighbors and relatives witnessed this miraculous recovery and marveled at the power of Falun Dafa.

When Jiang Zemin's regime began the savage persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, Ms. Chen Xuewen was harassed by different Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organizations. Attempts to deceive, intimidate, threaten, and coerce her to give up her Falun Gong practice were directed by the Chenghai 610 Office. Collaborators in this effort included secretary Zheng Jinqun, Waisha Town Political and Legal Affairs Committee; director Wu Zhenyan, Comprehensive Management Office; and the secretary of Huaxin Village. Ms. Chen was grateful for how she had benefited from Falun Dafa and refused to give up her practice. The organizations listed above had Ms. Chen arrested in March 2001 and taken to the Laiwu Brainwashing Center in Chenghai. Chen Xianzhong and Shen Zhiyong from the Chenghai 610 Office attempted every means of deception, intimidation, and threats to force Ms. Chen to give up Falun Gong.

Ms. Chen Xiaobing was very young at that time, and had witnessed how her mother's life was restored after practicing Falun Gong. She was grateful that Dafa saved her family, so she also started to practice Falun Gong with her mother. She followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and became a nurse at the Shantou Central Hospital after her graduation. Ms. Chen was recognized as very responsible and a hard worker. She took attentive care of patients and was praised by her supervisors, colleagues, and patients.

Ms. Chen Xiaobing was arrested by the Shantou 610 Office and Shantou Domestic Security Division staff on the afternoon of February 23, 2013. Her residence in Shantou City and her home in Waisha Town were then ransacked, and her family also received threats from government officials. Ms. Chen is currently being held in the Tuopu Detention Center.
