Practitioner Mr. Zhang Yan Was Picked Up by Authorities While Traveling on Business in Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zhang Yan was the head of the personnel department in the Shunfeng Suyun Limited Company (a Hong Kong based company) in Liaoning Province. On October 23 in the afternoon he was identified in the Shenzhen airport and illegally arrested by the police.
Practitioner Mr. Zhang lives on Xiaoxi Road in the Shenhe area of Shenyang City. In 2002 he was forced from his home. Based on his graduate degree and his long term experience in labor financial management, on October 16, 2006, he was hired by the Shunfeng Suyun Company in Liaoning Province as the personnel manager in the northeast branch. On his first day of work he was sent to the Shenzhen headquarters for training. On October 23 when the Sunfeng Beijing office held a budget meeting, he flew to Beijing to join the meeting. Security checked his ID in the Shenzhen airport and found him listed as a "homeless Falun Dafa practitioner." He was detained right away. The Xiaoxi detention center in the Shenhe area in Shenyang City sent him back to Shenyang.
Mr. Zhang used to have what was considered a perfect family: an honorable wife, a wonderful child, and a great job with a high income. However, since July 20, 1999, when the Chinese Communist Party began its ban of Falun Gong, this family has suffered many hardships. This couple (both of them are practitioners) have been "illegally detained" and lost their jobs. The child has suffered from the loss of her parent's care. The police constantly knocked on their door to disturb, harass, or arrest them. The 12-year-old daughter has bravely endured such horror and worry, never knowing when her mother or father would be taken away unexpectedly.
In early 2002, Mr. Zhang and his wife were forced to leave their daughter with their relatives, and both left their home.
In order to provide for their daughter to be able to go to school and to contribute to the family's expenses, Mr. Zhang always worked hard. On October 16, 2006, he was hired by the Shunfeng Suyun Limit Company in Liaoning Province and arrested one week later.
