(Clearwisdom.net) On May 10, 2007, police from the Wolitun Police Department and the Daqing City Police Bureau arrested Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Cui Yumei. She is presently detained in the Daqing Detention Center. The reason for the arrest is the fact that arrests of Falun Gong practitioners from Wolitun were exposed on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website.
According to an eyewitness, at 8 o'clock on May 10, 2007, Cui Yumei was pushed down to the ground near the Longfeng Shopping Center by two plainclothes policemen. The police dragged her, pushed her into a minivan and left. It was confirmed that police from the Wolitun Police Department and the Daqing City Police Bureau arrested Cui Yumei.
Li Wenhui, the leader of the criminal police unit from the Wolitun Police Department, and two policemen from the Daqing City Police Bureau have interrogated Ms. Cui since she was arrested. Cui Yumei did not say a word. At ten o'clock in the evening, she was sent to the Daqing City Detention Center. She was detained for over 12 hours. According to lawyers, this kind of arrest is illegal. When family members went to the Wolitun Police Department to ask for her release, Zhang Yuqing, the Political Commissioner of the the Wolitun Police Department, threatened, "I will order the police to arrest you if you do not leave."
Cui Yumei began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. She became a good person according to the standard of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, and always considers others first. Such a good person has suffered a lot due to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong. She has experienced torture, detention and time in a labor camp.
In April 2000, Cui Yumei went to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. She was detained at the Longfeng Detention Center for one month. On June 18, 2000 she joined a group practice in front of the Daqing Petroleum Administration Bureau. As a result, she was detained for over a month at the Taikang Detention Center. In November 25, 2000, Ms. Cui was detained at the Daqing City Detention Center for a month and a half for appealing for Falun Gong in Beijing, and was later sent to the Harbin City Drug Rehabilitation Center for one year in a labor camp.
Cui Yumei has been tortured many times during detention. At the Daqing Detention Center she was hung up with the tips of her feet just touching the floor. All her weight was on her wrists. This torture is very painful, with the handcuffs cutting into the flesh. At the Longfeng Detention Center, Cui Yumei was forced to jog with over 50 pounds of shackles on her ankles. Her ankles were rubbed raw and bloody. The police also forced her to squat for a long time with her head touching her feet. These tortures have caused Ms. Cui physical and mental suffering.
Cui Yumei's family members also practice Falun Gong. They have all suffered severe persecution. Her mother Wang Shuqin has been arrested many times and was persecuted to death on September 21, 2002. Her father Cui Hongyi has been detained many times, from September 1999 to April 2004. He was sentenced to one year in a labor camp, and three years in prison. Her sister Cui Yubo was sent to a labor camp twice from September 1999 to April 2003. Her sister-in-law was detained for 15 days at the Longfeng Detention Center in 2000 for appealing for Falun Gong. Her husband divorced her as a result of extended persecution.
