(Minghui.org) Mr. Xia from Harbin City was hosting his guests on September 20 when three plainclothes officers broke in and tried to arrest them. When he demanded to know their identities, and one officer claimed, “Our name is villain!”

The police revealed that they were acting on a tip from Gao Zhiqiang, head of Wopeng Village, who reported that Mr. Xia and his guests planned to read books of Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.

While Mr. Xia wasn’t arrested, all his guests, Mr. Cai, Mr. Su, and Mr. Xu Zhenbin, were taken into custody. Mr. Cai and Mr. Su were released later that night after they gave in to police pressure and signed a statement promising to renounce Falun Gong.

Mr. Xu was sent to Shuangcheng Detention Center, where he remains at the time of writing.
