(Minghui.org) Officers from the Jinzhou District Domestic Security Division in Dalian seized Mr. Li Dehui on January 16, 2014 for telling people about Falun Gong and got the arrest approved after the fact.
Police notified Mr. Li’s family around 5 p.m. on February 14, 2014, that his arrest had been approved and told them to come to sign the document on Monday. His family arrived at Zhanqian Police Station Monday morning.
When officer Bai told them to sign, a family member said, “I do not know the law, but I know what this ‘arrest approval’ means. You said Li Dehui’s customers reported him. Is he being charged for treasonous speech? I can’t accept that and won’t sign it.”
Bai said, “It doesn’t matter if you sign or not. In any case, I have informed you.”
Mr. Li Dehui, 38, earned his living delivering water. He is a considerate, kind, honest and trustworthy businessman. Officers with the Zhanqian Police Station arrested him near his home at around 9 a.m. on January 16, 2014. They confiscated his van, ransacked his home, and took away his Falun Dafa books, a laptop, and several discs. Police claimed Mr. Li often told his customers the facts about Falun Gong.
Mr. Li’s arrest adversely affected his family. His mother is bedridden, and his elder brother and sister-in-law are deaf and must rely on his parents. Mr. Li found a buyer for his parents’ rice, but the rice was taken away before he could go home and ship it. To date, the rice remains unsold. His 2-year-old daughter asks about his return every day.
Guo Lin, deputy captain of the Jinzhou District Domestic Security Division, led the arrest of Mr. Li and participated in many arrests of Falun Gong practitioners last year, including Mr. Xia Yuanxin, who is still detained.
