On April 13, Li Wenzu sent an application for administrative reconsideration to the People's Government of Shijingshan District in Beijing, demanding a ruling of illegality on the Shijingshan Branch of the Beijing Public Security Bureau’s violation of law by restricting her personal freedom by force . In her application, Li Wenzu stated that on April 10, she was at the Ruihao Hotel in Dong Majuan Town, Wuqing District of Tianjin. While she was checking out in the lobby, Lu Kai and Li Gu, police officers from the Shijingshan District of Beijing, and others swarmed in and forced her into a car and sent her back to her home at Bajiao Zhong Li in Shijingshan District of Beijing. After that, more than 30 people stayed beneath her apartment to keep watch. When she tried to go out to buy some fruit after dinner, she was surrounded and pushed at the entrance of her residential community. She called for the police but they did not respond. The next morning, several friends came to visit her, and they were violently intercepted by 40 to 50 people. At the same time, four to five people, including police, blocked her apartment door and refused to let her out. In the afternoon, they also blocked the family caretaker who was trying to take the children out for a walk. The caretaker suffered verbal abuse and was threatened with these words: "We will kill you all if you dare to step outside."
Li Wenzu is the wife of Wang Quanzhang, arrested 709 lawyer. On April 4, 2018, she began a march from the Supreme People’s Court in Beijing to the Tianjin No.2 Intermediate People's Court in an epic search for her husband.
