On the morning of April 15th, practitioners Yang Haidong, Li Wei, Yang Yan and Fan Zhaofu, from Yijingcuiyuan, Haizhu District, Guangzhou, were arrested. Zen Haoyi's home was searched, in violation of the Chinese Constitution.

Around 9:00 a.m., the practitioner couple Shen Yi and Lin Bo, who live in the Haizhu District, and Liu Jianguo were arrested. Participating in the arrest were personnel from the 610 Office1 in Guangzhou City, agents from the National Security Bureau, from the Haizhu District 610 Office, from the Haizhu District Police Department, and from the Jiangnanzhong Street Police Station and Residential Street Committee. More than 20 policemen searched the building and could not find any evidence to use against the practitioners. Because there were many people watching, the police pretended they found drugs while searching Shen Yi's home. Shen Yi was incarcerated in the Nanzhou Detention Centre that night. Lin Bo went home that same night. No one knows Liu Jianguo's whereabouts. No one has had contact with Lin Bo since April 17th.

An unknown number of practitioners who work in the Songyuan Building, the Haizhu District, Guangzhou were also arrested.

2. Five practitioners from Liwan District, Guangzhou arrested

At 6:00 a.m., persecutors from the 610 Office and from a local police station took practitioners Huang Zihui and his wife Chen Jie from the Liwan District to the police station and searched their home.

At 7:30 a.m., a group of persecutors from the Political and Legal Committee in the Yuexiu District, personnel from the 610 Office and the local police department went to practitioner Cai Yuzhen's home. They confiscated a computer, printer, an MP3 player and other personal belongings. The 75-year-old Cai Yuzhen immediately experienced symptoms of high blood pressure and was hospitalized for four days. Her children were forced to write a "guarantee statement2" and provide copies of their identification cards. They then had to send their mother to the home of a daughter who lives in another city.

This was only one of the persecution events that were due to the "Olympic Torch" coming to Guangzhou, and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Zhou Yongkang and Zhang Dejiang arriving to oversee the event.

According to inside sources, the September 23rd, 2007 arrest incident of 22 practitioners and the April 15th, 2008 arrest of more than 30 practitioners are directly related to a CCP spy Yi Tengfei (also called Yi Siheng, Yi Zheng or Xiao Yi, and other aliases).
