Mother Detained, Three Children Left without Care  
Print  E-mail 


Ms. Dong Peilan has three daughters ages 8, 10, and 13.


Both Ms. Dong Peilan and her husband, Mr. Zhao Lanzhou, are Falun Gong practitioners. In January 2000, Ms. Dong Peilan was arrested because she appealed to the government in Beijing to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. She was then detained in the First Forced Labor Camp in Gansu Province for one year. After her release on August 25, 2002, she was again arrested while in a local store. Her husband had been forced to leave home the prior year to avoid arrest and torture and has been missing ever since. Now, their three little girls have been left alone with no one to take care of them.


The three children went to Tianshui Police Station three days in a row, crying for the release of their mother. The police refused to free her. The oldest daughter, who was 13, could not bear this tragic situation and ran away from home. She has been missing ever since. The other two daughters, 10 and 8 years old, are having a hard time living by themselves without anyone to care for them.
