Case Description:
Mr. Liu Liang, was a 24 year old practitioner from Daheliu Village, Zhangying Township, Jiaozhou, City Shandong Province. Mr. Liu was arrested at the end of September 2006 and was detained at Jiaozhou City Detention Center for 2 weeks. Officials at the Qingdao 610 Office ordered the Jiaozhou City police and judicial system to collect evidence in Liu Liang's case in order to further persecute him. Six plainclothes police officers broke into Mr. Liu's home on June 5, 2007. They ransacked it without ever identifying themselves. The police videotaped the rooms and Liu Liang's family-owned factory. The officers could not find anything. It has been revealed that police intercepted Liu Liang on his way home from a friend's residence at 8 p.m. on June 5, 2007. The police chased Liu Liang, who was on a motorcycle, and ran him into the opening of a large well before hastily taking off. The well is eight meters [26.4 ft] in diameter and flush with the ground, therefore difficult to see in the dark. A villager found Liu Liang's body and his motorcycle in the well at noon on June 7, 2007 and called the police. The following day, Jiaozhou City 610 Office head Wang Ronghai and Jiaozhou City Police Department head Wang Yong went to Liu Liang's home and told his family, "The police are not in the least responsible for Liu Liang's death.
