Zhang Zhehua and Guo Siru, a Couple from Guangdong Province, Detained for Months
(Minghui.org) On the evening of October 30, 2012 around 8 o'clock, 59-year-old Zhang Zhehua and 47-year-old Guo Siru, were arrested at work and taken to the Guangdong Sanshui Brainwashing Center. They are Falun Dafa practitioners and were working at the Qingxin Power Supply Bureau in Qingxin District, Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province. The police officers also forced two of their colleagues to go with them to the brainwashing center. These colleagues were replaced by two others as directed by the police officers.
The couple began practicing Falun Gong before the persecution began on July 20, 1999, and are known to be good and responsible workers.
During the holidays in October 2012, brochures clarifying the truth about Falun Gong were found within the building of Qingxin Power Supply Bureau. Leaders of the Bureau suspected that Zhang and Guo had brought them into the building. Chen, the leader of their department, and Tan, the Communist Party secretary of the Bureau, went to the couple's home to investigate. At first the two men indicated that police officers planned to come, but they had convinced the officers to let them come instead. However, on October 30, 2012, they purposely delayed the couple from going home to give the police time to ransack the couple's home and then arrested them.
Three large wall pictures about 70 cm by 180 cm were taken by the police. One picture depicted Dafa practitioners doing the exercises and the other was the Falun Dafa emblem. They also confiscated a picture of the founder Mr. Li Hongzhi, some books about the practice and instructional videos, Shen Yun DVDs, and a computer bought recently. The home of the couple was left in disarray.
