Background

Mr. Liang, originally from the Baoquanling Agricultural Reclamation in Luobei County, Hegang City, had been working in Binxi Town, Bin County, Harbin City, in recent years.

On November 9th, 2011, officers from the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) of the Baoquanling Agricultural Reclamation and the local police department arrested four practitioners. The police ransacked the practitioners' homes and then drove more than 250 miles to Binxi Town in an attempt to arrest Mr. Liang. He was not home, so they broke into his house and ransacked it.

In March 2012, officers from the Gongqing Police Department in Luobei County went to Mr. Liang's workplace in Binxi Town and attempted to arrest him there. Mr. Liang was forced to leave home and place of employment to avoid further persecution. Nevertheless, he was arrested shortly thereafter, on July 5th, 2012.
