Arrests of Practitioners Skyrocket in Hefei City at the End of June

On the evening of June 20, 2008, the Hefei City, Anhui Province local Chinese Communist Party (CCP) dispatched a large number of police officers to arrest nearly ten practitioners.

The practitioners arrested include: Ms. Huang Yuping, Ms. Wang Xiuying, Ms. Qiu Xiufen, Ms. Luo Shanshan.

In addition, two practitioners who ran printing businesses, as well as another practitioner living at the Hefei Industrial University housing, were also arrested (all three names unknown).

Hefei police recently received orders from CCP officials to arrest practitioners and were given arrest quotas. At the same time, throughout Hefei, the regional community residential committees started visiting each dwelling asking for personal information about the registered inhabitants there.

Some practitioners have been missing for nearly 2 weeks now, and it is still unknown whether they have been arrested. Furthermore, several practitioners have been forced into homelessness, unable to return to their residences.

When Ms. Qiu Xiufen was arrested, the police repeatedly beat her on the head, causing fractures in her skull, and then forcibly took her away. Ms. Huang Yuping was arrested by officers from the Wuhu Road Police Station.

One practitioner's family members stood up to oppose the arrest. As a result, this practitioner was not taken away, but was closely monitored from morning till night.

Reliable sources report that there is a four-story building in the Baishuiba Community, where many practitioners are thought to be imprisoned. The building's windows are all covered with thick steel bars.
