Ms. Li Chunyan lives in Xingli Village, Aoqi Town in the suburb of Jiamusi City and works in her own seed shop at Jiangchuan Farm. She was reported to police when she distributed truth-clarifying materials on how to avoid the CCP Virus (the virus that causes Covid-19). Officers from the Jiangchuan Police Station went to her shop and arrested her on the morning of February 4, 2021. They took her cell phone.
Ms. Cai Zefang, in her 80s, was arrested by several officers from the Chengnan Police Station and the Yingshan County Police Department on the morning of January 29, 2021 when she was clarifying the truth on the street. They came in two police cars and took Ms. Cai to her home and ransacked it. They took away several Dafa books, more than 2,000 yuan in paper bills with truth-clarifying words printed on them, CDs, amulets and other personal property. Ms. Cai was interrogated in the police station until 8 p.m. that day and then released. The police threatened that they “were not finished with her yet.”

After Ms. Shi Weihua from Ju County was sentenced to two years, she left her hometown and had to move from place to place. Due to the pandemic lockdown, she had to come back to her hometown during Chinese New Year. She was then arrested from her home. It is unknown where she is detained.
Three practitioners in Huangzhai Town were harassed on the morning of January 10, 2021. Zhang Ling from the Shangshui County Domestic Security Division, the head of the Huangshui Town Police Station, and other officers came to the home of Mr. Teng Yuexin, who is in his 80s, and his wife Mr. Song Denglan in Dawangzhuang Village.
