  • Practitioner Ms. Yuan Zheng Missing, Taken to "Undisclosed Location"

    Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Yuan Zheng is about 38 to 39 years old. In September 2001, she was arrested while explaining the true situation of Falun Dafa in public. She was detained at Zhuhai City Detention Centre No. 2. Ms. Yuan did not give her name. Therefore, the guards recorded her as "no name" on the chart. In June 2002, Yuan Zheng was taken to an undisclosed location. No one has heard of her since. I worry deeply about Ms. Yuan Zhen, who disappeared many years ago, since hearing the horrible news concerning the Shenyang Sujiatun secret concentration camp, where they harvested organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and sold them for transplants.
