Wrongly Sentenced to 13 Years of Imprisonment, Ms. Fu Yan Tortured at the Liaoning Women's Prison

Print

Ms. Fu Yan, 38 years old, from Dashiqiao City of Liaoning Province, started practising Falun Gong in 1998. Not long after she started her cultivation, she recovered from her persistent skin problem (Psoriasis). She had regained her health physically and emotionally. Her family of three is in the trading business in Beijing.

Ms. Li Yanhua, a Falun Gong practitioner in her 60's, resides in a village in Dongjiang in Nanlou Development Zone of Dashiqiao City in Liaoning Province. While leaving her house on February 18th, 2001 to distribute leaflets exposing the persecution of Falun Gong to others, she was reported to the authorities and was taken to Nanlou Development Zone Police Department. The policemen interrogated her as to the source of the Falun Gong materials. The police used batons to viciously beat her causing her to lose control of her bowels. She was covered with wounds all over her body and blood flowed from her eyes, nose, ears and mouth. She died from the abuse.

Ms. Li's tragic death incident was reported with the title "Elderly Woman Beaten to Death by Police in Liaoning Province" (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/3/20/5665.html). Under the instigation from their superiors, the relevant communist regime's agents in Dashiqiao City searched everywhere to try to find out who took the photographs and posted the details online. Dashiqiao City police arrested six practitioners and trumped up false charges against them so as to sentence them to imprisonment. The date of the trial was February 17th, 2003. Among them, practitioner Wang Changshun was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment. Lu Guozhan, Liu Fangxu, Xuqiang and Fu Yan were sentenced to 8 years. During the period of imprisonment in the Dashiqiao City Detention Centre, practitioner Ms. Fu Yan was tortured even though she had symptoms of heart disease and high blood pressure. As her appeal to court was rejected, she escaped from imprisonment while in the hospital. Two months later she was once again arrested. She was sent to the No. 2 Team of the No. 9 Ward at the Liaoning Province Women's Prison. Dashiqiao City court later added five and a half years of imprisonment to her sentence. In total, Ms. Fu Yan was sentenced to thirteen and a half years to her prison term.

In December 2009, Ms. Fu Yan did not co-operate with the prison and refused to do forced labour. As a result she was locked up in a small solitary cell and tortured. It has been two months since her family members have been allowed to visit her. They are very worried since the police often refuse family visits to conceal their crimes when the practitioner has visible injuries.
