(Minghui.org) A Yishui County, Shandong Province resident was arrested at home around 6:30 p.m. on September 8, 2020 by local officials and police officers who came in three cars.

The police ransacked Mr. Huang Jianguo’s home and searched for items related to Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

While trying to force Mr. Huang into a police car, officers tore off his pants and punched him in the head. Upon arriving at the police station, several officers beat Mr. Huang, knocked him down and stomped on his head. He had multiple injuries and his head and face swelled up.

Mr. Huang has been released at the time of writing.

This isn’t the first time that Mr. Huang has been targeted for his faith in Falun Gong. He was arrested twice, in 2001 and 2002, respectively, both of which resulted in one month detention and 3,000 yuan fine.
