(Minghui.org) A resident of Lanxi County, Heilongjiang Province, is facing indictment for his faith in Falun Gong, a mind-body practice that has been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party since July 1999.

Mr. Liu Min was arrested at home at around 9 a.m. on November 13, 2023, by agents from the Lanxi County Police Department. A witness reported seeing five or six plainclothes officers, one of them a woman, descend on Mr. Liu’s apartment building in two private cars that day. They took Mr. Liu away but brought him back at around 2 p.m. to raid his home. They confiscated his Falun Gong books and took him to the Lanxi County Lockup. Fifteen days later, they transferred him to the Lanxi County Detention Center, where he remains.

Captain Liu Xiaobo (+86-13904558767) fabricated evidence against Mr. Liu and submitted his case to the Lanxi County Procuratorate, which returned the case and declined to issue a formal arrest warrant against him. Liu then worked hand in glove with Qin Zhongwei (+86-13836408899), deputy police chief and head of the 610 Office, and submitted the case to the Anda City Procuratorate.

Both Lanxi County and Anda City are under the administration of Suihua City. The Anda City Procuratorate recently issued a formal arrest warrant against Mr. Liu and he is facing indictment for his faith.

Mr. Liu has been denied family visits since his arrest. His 88-year-old mother once went to the Lanxi County Lockup to visit him and was told, “You are too old to see your son in custody.”

The elderly woman now visits her son’s apartment every day. It remained a big mess after the police raid, but she said staying there made her feel connected to her son.
