(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Ding Yuming from Huailai County in Hebei Province was arrested on February 27, 2018, by officers from the Maju Town Police Station. They said that he was caught on surveillance cameras writing “Falun Dafa is good” on a post at the Beijing Bridge on February 15.

The police searched his workplace and ransacked his home. They confiscated Dafa books and other personal belongings valued at 3,000 yuan.

Mr. Ding works for the Environment and Health Office of Juqiao Town. Top managers at his workplace requested that the police release him, but to no avail. They were instead forced to pay a 30,000 yuan fine.

Mr. Ding exhibited high blood pressure and a heart condition while in detention, and was taken to a hospital on March 2, 2018. He then went on hunger strike to protest the persecution.

Agents from the Beixinbao Town Government escorted him home on March 7, 2018. Two officers stayed at his home and closely monitored him for 20 days.
