(Minghui.org) Six Zhucheng City, Shandong Province, residents were interrogated and held in a brainwashing center following their arrests for practicing Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Li Mingxia, Ms. Xu Huancui, Ms. Li Hongmei, Ms. Zheng Zhimei, and Mr. Luo Wenxin and his wife Ms. Li Yeshu were arrested on March 4, 2022, and had their homes ransacked.

Officers with the Zhucheng Domestic Security Office interrogated all six practitioners. Ms. Li Mingxia was severely beaten by officer Song Wei. She was handcuffed to a metal chair for over 20 days during the interrogation. Her face was terribly swollen.

All six practitioners were later taken to the Zhucheng City Brainwashing Center, also known as the “Care Center” to the outside. Ms. Li Yeshu was released early, but the other five practitioners were held at the brainwashing center until April 19. All of them were forced to pay an unknown amount on bail bonds.

In addition to these six, another practitioner in Zhucheng, Mr. Cao Mingzhi, was arrested on March 6 for talking to pandemic control personnel in a neighboring village about Falun Gong. After spending one night at the police station, the next day he was taken to the brainwashing center where a police officer pushed him down. He was released on March 13.
