(Minghui.org) Ms. Zhang Ping was unlawfully tried by Lüyuan District court in Changchun City on May 8, 2015. Neither her family nor her attorney knew about the trial.

Couple Arrested, Home Ransacked
Ms. Zhang's husband came home on the evening of December 16, 2014 to find his wife handcuffed behind the back. Their home was being ransacked by eight police officers from Lüyuan Police Department and Chengxi Police Station. Seeing their hard-earned money taken away, he censured police, calling them robbers. The police then beat him and handcuffed him behind the back.
Ms. Zhang and her husband were taken to Chengxi Police Station at around 11 pm. Besides their money, the police also confiscated two computers, two printers, Falun Gong books, photos of the founder of Falun Gong, and other personal belongings.
During the couple's arrest, their daughter was was threatened by police chief Dong Zhipeng (董志鹏), who said, “We will find an excuse to punish them!” Scared for their safety, she followed them to the police station.
Daughter Forced to Sign Pre-printed Interrogation Record
At the police station, Ms. Zhang's daughter was interrogated. She was forced to sign a pre-printed interrogation record. When she questioned its accuracy, police officer Li Zheng threatened, “For your own good, you had better just sign it!” Fearing her own detention, she reluctantly signed.
At noon the following day, Ms. Zhang's daughter was told by a police officer that her mother was officially detained and was on the way to Changchun No. 3 Detention Center.
Ms. Zhang's husband was released later that afternoon. He had been tied to a heater on cement floor throughout his detention, and not given food or drink the whole day.
