Mr. Zhang Jianlai Sentenced to Prison Two Years Ago, Current Whereabouts Unknown
(Minghui.org) Mr. Zhang Jianlai from Zhengzhou City was arrested and secretly sentenced to prison over two years ago for practicing Falun Dafa. His whereabouts are currently unknown. His mother, Ms. Lan Shiqi, passed away in March 2013 without seeing her son one last time.
Mr. Zhang was employed at the Henan Province Electricity Company Hospital. His mother had many illnesses and started to practice Falun Dafa. After a period of time, she became healthy. She was very kind and always ready to help others. Her co-workers at the Zhengzhou City Fire and Electricity Factory all respected her.
After Mr. Zhang was arrested on March 21, 2011, the police ransacked his home. They confiscated a computer, printer, Dafa books and a few ten thousand yuan in cash. He was held in the Zhongyuan District Detention Center.
On March 26, 2011, Mr. Zhang's mother, who was in her 80s, went to the Zhongyuan District Detention Center to visit him. A guard whose last name was Zhou said that Mr. Zhang had been transferred to the Zhengzhou City Second Detention Center in Henan Province the day before. His mother went to the Zhengzhou City Second Detention Center and was turned away, because she did not know Mr. Zhang's prison ID. She was told to send him clothes and cash and to write a him a letter.
On April 11, 2011, Mr. Zhang started a hunger strike to protest being held. Zhang, the director of the Zhengzhou City Second Detention Center, told his family to visit on the morning of April 25, 2011.
The day of the visit, Mr. Zhang could not walk. Three inmates who were being held in the same ward carried him out to visit his family. One inmate held an IV bottle that was inserted into Mr. Zhang's arm containing unknown drugs. There were no visible injuries on Mr. Zhang. This was the first time he had seen his family since being arrested. His condition was very critical at that time.
According to a report on the Minghui website, in September 2011, he was secretly sentenced to two and a half years in prison while being held at the Zhengzhou City Second Detention Center. In December 2011, he was transferred to the No. 9 Ward in Zhengzhou City Prison, located in Xinmi City, Henan Province.
His wife divorced him and his family members felt the strain of having a relative in prison.
Mr. Zhang's father was terrified of the CCP. He would often criticize his wife and did not allow her to practice Falun Gong. After Mr. Zhang was arrested and persecuted, his father frequently lost his temper and threw things.
It was a heavy blow for Mr. Zhang's mother and she frequently fell. She developed some serious illnesses. In March 2013 when her husband got angry and threw things, she passed out. She never regained consciousness after being taken to the hospital. Two days later, she passed away. Mr. Zhang was unable to attend his mother's funeral.
Mr. Zhang's father went home after his wife was taken to the hospital. With much regret he said in front of his neighbors, “If she lives, I will no longer control her. She can do whatever she wants.” The death of Mr. Zhang's mother brought great sorrow to his father, who had suffered a lifetime of persecution by the CCP.
Yet another family has been destroyed by the CCP.
