(Minghui.org) Officers from the Shazikou Town Border Police Station and Consolidation Office in the Laoshan District of Qingdao City, Shandong Province, arrested Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Wang Yong on October 15, using the ruse of wanting to learn the truth about Falun Gong. They took him from his food stall to the police station, and confiscated his personal belongings and over 6000 yuan in paper currency that had messages about Dafa written on each bill.

Mr. Wang sells tortillas and pasta in Shazikou Town market. He sells quality food and trades fairly, so he is recognized as an honest man in the market. A lot of people felt that it was unfair that he was arrested.

In the afternoon, Mr. Wang's wife carried their baby, who is less than a month old, to the Shazikou Police Station to request the release of her husband. She told the police that her husband practices Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and that there is nothing wrong with wanting to be a good person. “You should not treat him this way,” she said. The police claimed that Mr. Wang's case had been submitted to Laoshan Public Security Bureau.

The next morning, she again went to the police station with her baby and told the police about the goodness of Falun Gong, hoping they would treat a Falun Gong practitioner kindly. She then returned home to take care of her octogenarian in-laws. When she went to the police station with food for Mr. Wang at 6:00 p.m., an officer told her that her husband had been sent to Pudong Detention Center in Jimo, Qingdao City.

On October 17, Mr. Wang's wife and mother went to Shazikou Comprehensive Management Office (actually the 610 Office), to ask for his release. The next day, a 610 Office agent notified Wang Yong's family that truth-clarification currency notes were found in Wang Yong's vehicle. He said it was “serious,” and told the family that Wang would be sentenced within a month.

The couple's baby was born less than a month ago. The sudden arrest of her husband and the constant police harassment have caused a lot of emotional anxiety and physical distress. The baby has also been affected and now has a bloated belly, rarely drinks milk, and cries non-stop. Ms. Wang has to look after the baby, as well as two elderly in-laws. Fellow relatives help her out, but the police harass them by constantly asking if they practice Falun Gong. One person was taken to the police station and illegally interrogated. Fellow townsfolk are very angry at the behavior of the police.

Wang Yong is still being detained at Pudong Detention Center.

Dong Fucai is Shazikou Town defense brigade secretary in the Laoshan District of Qingdao City. His cell phone number 1-3863934706. He is the main person responsible for Wang Yong's arrest. He has refused to listen to the truth and has directed security personnel to monitor, track, and stalk Falun Gong practitioners for a long time.
