(Minghui.org) Four women in Anda City, Heilongjiang Province were arrested on the evening of December 24, 2020 for their faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

The police deceived the four Falun Gong practitioners into opening their doors and then ransacked their homes. All of their Falun Gong-related materials were confiscated.

Ms. Chen Jingjie’s cash, bank deposit slips, and her apartment title were taken away. Her husband was also arrested. It’s not clear whether he practices Falun Gong and whether he is still detained.

Even though Ms. Zhao Xiuzhi was found to have high blood pressure and Ms. Pei Yufeng also had some health issues, both of them--and Ms. Chen, 65--are still being held in the Anda Detention Center at the time of writing.

Ms. Lu Haifeng was denied admission by the local detention center after she was found to have suffered a heart attack. She has been taken home by her family.
