[Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province] Dafa Practitioner Mr. Wu Rongjie Sentenced to Eight Years Imprisonment
During the night of December 30, 2002, three people from Shuangta District Police Department and the Linghe Police Station, including Liu Guozheng, deputy director of the Linghe Police Station, arrested Mr. Wu Rongjie at a fellow practitioner's building entrance.
At the Linghe Police Station, Wu's hands were handcuffed to a bench for a whole night. The next day he was hung up by the wrists, with handcuffs on, for a day at the National Security Team headquarters for the Shuangta Police Department. Wu Rongjie didn't give in to the evil. At 5:00 p.m. he was transferred to Wujiawa's No.1 Detention Center.
During the detention period, the jumbled environment and horrible conditions contributed to Mr. Wu contracting a serious illness for which he received no treatment. Even after several months, he was not allowed to be bailed out for hospitalization. On August 3, 2003, the Shuangta District court held a secret trial at the detention center. They didn't inform Wu's family members, so except for 20 police officers, no other people were present. Wu Rongjie was carried to the court on a stretcher. He didn't sign on the verdict. He was sentenced to eight years of imprisonment and is about to be sent to Shenyang City's Dabei Prison.
