Li Huafeng and Zhang Shengyan from Wuxue City, Hubei Province Arrested in Changchun
(Minghui.org) Mr. Li Huafeng and Mr. Zhang Shengyan from Meichuan Township, Wuxue City, Hubei Province were arrested in Changchun On August 29, 2013.
Mr. Li, 26, is a new Falun Gong practitioner who started practicing a year ago. When he went to Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province, to do physical labor, he began to tell people about Falun Gong. Officers from Lishui Police Station in Wenzhou City followed him, and working with officers from Nanguan District Police Station in Changchun City, arrested him. Mr. Zhang Shengyan from the same village was arrested along with him. Police officers searched Mr. Mei's home in Meichuan.
Lishui and Sanyang police station officers in Wenzhou City broke into and searched Mr. Li's rented accommodations in Wenzhou City, intending to arrest him, on July 22. Fortunately, Mr. Li and his father managed to escape. Police then arrested three of Mr. Li's relatives and took them to Sanyang Police Station to interrogate them. They were not released until midnight. Many of Mr. Li's friends and relatives living in Wenzhou City have been harassed to varying degrees.
Home Broken Into
At the same time, police from the Lishui police station drove to Wuxue City in Hubei Province, where they teamed up with the police from the Meichuan police station to break into Mr. Li's home. They searched his home, confiscated his Dafa books, Master's portraits, and an undetermined amount of cash.
When Mr. Li and his wife were at Wenzhou City, they were threatened and harassed by police every day. His wife couldn't bear the constant pressure and took their year-old son to the child's grandmother. Mr. Li's wife then disappeared. The grandmother must now care for the boy and two other children on her own.
Others Arrested and Harassed
Mr. Li's father, Mr. Li Qiguo, is in his 50s. Because he practices Falun Gong, he has been subjected to persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) many times. In October of 2000, he was detained for several months. In 2003, he was arrested and sent to Wuxue Brainwashing Center for several months. With righteous thoughts, he managed to escape, but since then has been forced to leave his home and go from place to place to escape arrest. In August of 2008, he was again arrested and sentenced to three years imprisonment. He returned home in 2011.
On August 1, 2013, Meichuan Police Station in Wuxue City arrested three more practitioners and held them for 15 days. At 3 a.m. on August 8, 2013, four to five officers from the Meichuan Police Station again harassed Mr. Li at his home.
