Mr. Shen Hailong Sentenced to Eighteen Years of Imprisonment and Transferred to Nanguanling Prison in Dalian City

Mr. Shen Hailong, a practitioner from Anshan City, Liaoning Province, was sentenced to 18 years of imprisonment because he participated in broadcasting messages exposing the persecution of Falun Gong via satellite. Recently he was transferred to Nanguanling Prison from Wafangdian Prison in Dalian City. In Wafangdian Prison, he was brutally tortured.

Nanguanling Prison is a notorious prison. In the past month, practitioner Mr. Bai Heguo, who was transferred there, was brutally tortured to death. Another Anshan practitioner, Wang Hongnan, was tortured to death in the past, but no one was ever implicated in his death.

Mr. Shen Hailong is 32 years old. In 2001, in order to let more people know the facts about Falun Gong, he, Ms. Zhang Li, and others broadcast messages exposing the persecution via satellite. Practitioners who participated in this incident were arrested at different times. Ms. Zhang Li was tortured by the Anshan Police Department. Her legs were broken and she passed away at the Anshan Central Hospital. Mr. Xu Zhaobin was wounded by gun shots and was arrested in another city after he recovered from his wounds. Mr. Shen was sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment after his arrest.

At first, they were detained in Wafangdian Prison in Dalian City. Recently, in order to deal with an international investigation, Wafangdian Prison officials transferred the practitioners to other prisons. Mr. Shen Hailong was transferred to Nanguanling Prison, where he is forced to sew clothes and work from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. The prison also brainwashes him. The prison guards are very aggressive. They went to his parents' home and harassed them, asking, "Who still practises Falun Gong?" They intended to push Mr. Shen's family members to the prison so as to pressure him.

When Mr. Shen Hailong was arrested, his child was just two years old. His wife was in poor health and had to rely on his parents to subsist. His child would often cry in front of his picture.
