Procuratorate Disapproves Arrest of Liaoning Practitioner Ms. Liu Xiuchun
(Minghui.org) On the morning of October 19, 2017, the Huanggu District Procuratorate announced that it would not approve the arrest of Ms. Liu Xiuchun, a Falun Gong practitioner from Shenhe District, Shenyang City. Ms. Liu Xiuchun was released as a result.
At approximately 8:00 a.m. on September 20, 2017, 53-year-old Ms. Liu Xiuchun was arrested by local police while she was at her son's home working on interior decorations. In the meantime, officers ransacked her homes in Dadong District and Shenhe District and confiscated Falun Gong books, desk calendars with information about Falun Gong, and others personal items. Her family was not notified of her arrest.
Ms. Liu's family went to all the police stations in Dadong District as well as the neighborhood Danan Police Station to demand her release, but none of the stations acknowledged that they had arrested her.
After investigating, her family realized that Huang Hui (office phone: +86-24-86404354) of the Huanggu District 610 Office had issued the arrest warrant, while a police officer from the local Domestic Security Division and officers from the Liaohe Police Station carried out the arrest. They took Ms. Liu to the Shenyang City No.1 Detention Center.
Ms. Liu's family worried about her safety and hired an attorney. Her case was submitted to the Huanggu District Procuratorate on October 12, 2017.
