On the morning of July 4, 2005, the police in Suizhong County, Huludao City, Liaoning Province forced their way into the Electricity Installation Company and arrested Dafa practitioner Yang Jiangwei, who was working there. They then ransacked his home.
Dafa practitioner Mr. Yang Jiangwei, 36, was an employee of Suizhong Electricity Installation Company. Because he believed in "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance," Yang was persecuted by the authorities of Huludao City and Suizhong County. Over the past 6 years, he has been arrested several times and sentenced to forced labor twice. He has spent at least four and a half years in labor camps.
On May 22, 2002, Yang, who was with his work unit, was forced into a brainwashing class. On the second day, the authorities sent him to Huludao Labor Camp as punishment for his hunger strike. He was sentenced to 3 years there. During his detention, he was once tortured until he was on the verge of death.
In May 2003, Yang Jiangwei was on the verge of death in Huludao Labor Camp. Yang's father, sister and his friend Yao Yanhui went there to request to bail him out for medical treatment, but they were themselves arrested and sentenced to labor camp.
On March 25, 2004, National Security Team leader Li Changhua arrested practitioner Yang Xiaojun by seizing his hair and pulling him into a vehicle in full view of the public. The action was described by a witness as a "gangster kidnapping." The second day, Yang Xiaojun was released. Li Changhua, fearing that his illegal deeds would be exposed, apologized to Yang's family and suggested reconciliation.
