Husband and Wife Practitioners Arrested in Hebei Province

On September 27th, practitioners Mr. Wang Jiangen and his wife, Ms. Sun Guilan, from Wei County, Hebei Province, were arrested. The couple lived in the Wei County seat. Their meagre income came from Mr. Wang's renting out his three-wheeled motorcycle. In order to help stop the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s persecution, Mr. Wang told the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution to the people he met. In the summer of 2006, a plainclothes police officer rented the motorcycle, and Mr. Wang told him about Falun Dafa. The officer pretended to be sympathetic and understanding and obtained Mr. Wang's personal information by taking advantage of his trust.

A few days days later, several police officers stopped Mr. Wang's motorcycle on the street. One of them said with a smirk, "Do you recognise me?" Mr. Wang looked at the officer and realised that he was the person to whom he had clarified the truth several days earlier. They took Mr. Wang to the police station, locked him in the interrogation room, and beat him mercilessly. They then forced him to return home and ransacked his house. They also arrested his wife and held her separately. She explained the facts about Falun Dafa to the police, and they released her later that afternoon. Ten days later, they released Mr. Wang.

Afterwards, the police continually harassed the couple in their own home. To avoid this harassment, they stayed in their hometown for several weeks. They later returned to their home in Wei County. On September 27th, 2006, at about 8:00 p.m., a group of people from the 610 Office1 and the political security section of the police department entered the Wangs' home and arrested them. They held Mr. Wang at the county detention centre, but they bound his wife and sent her to be jailed in Zhangjiakou City. Reports indicate they will be imprisoned far from their home and sentenced to three years of forced labour.
