(Clearwisdom.net) In May 2005 the police in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province illegally arrested Falun Gong practitioner Zhang Weihua, her husband, and her mother. Even her father, who does not practice Falun Gong, was affected. He passed away due to the persecution. More details follow:

On the morning of May 13, 2005, about 20 police officers from the Yangliu Village Police Station, a branch office of the Jinjiang Public Security Bureau in Chengdu City, illegally broke into Falun Gong practitioner Zhang Weihua and Zhou Jingdong's home at #62, 4th Section of Liulichang Village, and searched the premises. They confiscated their desktop and laptop computers, Falun Gong related books, the book entitled The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and all their identification information including their ID cards, residential cards, and their real estate property certificates (for an apartment in Guangrong Xiaoqu and an apartment at Xiaojiahe). The police searched their home for more than half a day. At dusk, they blocked the areas around the home and took the couple to be held at the Pi County Detention Center in Chengdu City.

Zhang Weihua's mother He Jianqing, father Zhang Changwen, and her younger brother live with her. Her mother is also a Falun Gong practitioner and was taken on the same day to the brainwashing class at the crossroads of Chengren Road in Jinjiang District, Chengdu City. Her father was under a lot of pressure and her brother was forced to leave home and wander the countryside to avoid further difficulties.

After Zhang Weihua was illegally detained, she tried to clarify the truth to the policemen, but they did not listen to her. She had to start a hunger-strike to resist the persecution. The police attempted to force her to eat by beating her and cursing, but it was no use. They then sent many criminals to persuade her to eat. Seeing that Zhang did not listen to them, they force-fed her. When force-feeding did not work, they gave her an infusion. Zheng Weihua strongly requested that they let her go as she was innocent.

She did not cooperate with the evil. They tied her to an iron bed and gave her an infusion. Afterwards, the criminals tortured her in every way imaginable. They even took urine from the restroom to "wash" her face and brush her teeth. After 20 days of hunger strike, Zhang Weihua was in a critical condition. Only then did they send her home.

After Zhang Weihua was sent home she was under supervision. Three police officers from the Yangliu Village Police Station were sent to her home. One of them is Yang Hongqiang. On the next day, Song Chuanping, a policeman from the Yangliu Village Police Station (previously called Liulichang Police Station), took some policemen and brought Zhang Weihua to the Jinjiang Public Security Bureau Brainwashing Class. She was detained in the same class with her mother. Her husband Zhou Jingdong was still locked up in the Pi County Detention Center.

Zhang Changwen, Zhang Weihua's father, used to be the head of the Complete Pressure Equipment Plant. After his wife, his daughter, and his son-in-law were all arrested and taken away, he had a hard time maintaining the empty home. There were also three policemen at his home waiting to arrest other practitioners, should they visit. On around June 7, Zhang Changwen told others that the police might start torturing him. There are signs afterwards showing that from June 7 to June 9, the police from the Yangliu Village Police station or Department I of the Jinjiang Public Security Bureau locked him up, threatened him, and carried out brutal interrogation using violence. On the night of June 9, Zhang Changwen's family was notified that he died of a sudden heart attack. His body was sent to the Chengdu Air Force Hospital. The police requested his family to immediately sign a release form so they could cremate his body. They tried to destroy the evidence of their crimes and make up lies to fool people. This entire persecution process needs to be investigated.

Recently some former practitioners who enlightened on an evil path have been running around everywhere. Many practitioners were arrested and sent to brainwashing classes for persecution in April, May and June.
