(Minghui.org) On July 24, 2012, personnel from the Binchuan County 610 Office, the Binchuan County Domestic Security Team, and the Qiaodian Town Police Station arrested practitioner Ms. Liu Guohua. She has been detained at the Binchuan County Detention Center ever since.
Benefiting from Dafa
In 2007, Ms. Liu seriously injured her hand in an accident. She kept reciting sincerely, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good.” Her hand healed without any medical treatment. She felt the miraculous nature of Falun Gong and started practicing. Her illnesses, including gallstones and gastric ulcer leading to gastroptosis, were cured after she began practicing Falun Gong. Ms. Liu told her story to people she knew to vouch for the magnificence of Falun Gong.
Guided by Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance, Ms. Liu improved her relationship with her mother-in-law and achieved harmony in her family. Because many of her family members practiced Falun Gong and knew how to search inside themselves when there were conflicts and difficulties, there was no longer any bickering in the family. Her husband also benefited from Ms. Liu's practicing of Falun Gong. Her husband used to suffer severe diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Although his doctor advised against certain types of food, he was able to eat what everyone else did and did not have any ill-effects.
Arrested, Access to Lawyer Denied
Around 4 o'clock on the afternoon of July 24, 2012, the authorities illegally arrested Ms. Liu. At 6 p.m, a group of people including Yang Yu, captain of the Binchuan County Domestic Security Team; Zhang Jianyang from the Binchuan County 610 Office; and Xiang Yongxiang, Li Kunhua, and Li Yanping from the Domestic Security Team ransacked her home and confiscated two photos of the founder of Falun Gong, Falun Gong books, an embroidery of Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance, over a hundred DVD jewel cases, over 400 amulets, an MP3 player, and two speakers. Ms. Liu was not present at the time. That night she was detained at the Domestic Security Team and taken to the Binchuan County Detention Center the next day. On July 25, the Domestic Security Team sent a notification of detention to her family.
Ms. Liu's family retained a lawyer to defend her. The lawyer went to the detention center at 8 a.m. on September 3 and asked to see Ms. Liu. The detention center authorities refused to allow him in, so he went to the Binchuan County Police Department to see officer Li Yanping. The policemen re-directed him to many different departments. Eventually, in the presence of Li Yanping, officer Xiang Yongxiang (police ID 043926), police inspector Peng Guixing (police ID 043914), and political instructor Liu, the lawyer was told, “We have asked for instructions from our superior and you are not allowed to see Liu Guohua.”
After much effort, the lawyer was eventually able to see Ms. Liu.
