(Minghui.org) A 37-year-old man was walking down the street this April when he was snatched by several police officers in Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. Despite his 70-year-old father's frantic efforts to locate him, the authorities kept his detention location and subsequent trial secret.

It became clear to Mr. Jiang Bo (姜波), a native of Qiqihar City doing odd jobs in Harbin, that the police had been following him for quite some time. His only “crime” was his persistence in exposing the persecution of Falun Gong.

Following his arrest on April 4 of this year, Mr. Jiang was given an “administrative detention” on April 16. Xiangfang District Procuratorate in Qiqihar City approved his arrest on May 20, and forwarded his case to Xiangfang District Court on July 24.

The court tried Mr. Jiang on August 22 and sentenced him to four years for possessing lawful items, including more than 50 paper bills with messages exposing the persecution of Falun Gong printed on them, a laptop, a portable hard disk and a USB drive.

Mr. Jiang immediately vowed to appeal his verdict after being notified of the result.

Mr. Jiang's father eventually discovered that his son is now being held in Shuguang Village Detention Center in Nangang District, Harbin City.
