Falun Gong Practitioners Arrested in Shan County, Shandong Province

Recently, claiming that they were "eliminating activities that spread negative propaganda," Shandong Province 610 Office1 personnel tried to stop Falun Gong practitioners from distributing leaflets exposing the persecution and telling people the facts about Falun Gong. At the same time, Shan County of Hezhe City was classified as one of the important counties to be singled out for persecution by the Shandong Province Police Department and Hezhe City Police Department. The police sent special groups from the provincial and city police departments to Shan County for reinforcements and to focus on destroying sites producing leaflets exposing the persecution.

On the afternoon of December 24th, 2007, the police arrested practitioners Mr. Qi Jiansheng and Ms. Wang Fenglan in Fugang Town while they were distributing leaflets. On the night of December 30th, they arrested practitioners Mr. Liu Guangchun and Ms. Shen Jin'e at their residence.

The domestic security division officers did not allow the family members to visit the detained practitioners and refused to pass on the clothes and daily necessities that they brought. The police handcuffed the practitioners and locked them in the Fugang Reservoir area. They refused to allow the practitioners to sleep for many days and interrogated them non-stop. They tried to make the practitioners break down mentally. Currently there are four practitioners being detained in the Shan County Detention Centre.
