(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Shi Zuosheng from Yisheng Village, Qingling Township, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province, is critically ill due to torture. His wife was sentenced to six years in prison and is now suffering from torture in the Harbin Women's Prison.

Mr. Shi began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. Because of the relentless harassment from local officials, he was forced to leave his home in 2001. On November 9, 2004, while clarifying the facts about the persecution in Harbin City, he was arrested. He is currently imprisoned in the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp. His wife Zhang Shufen was arrested at Zhoujia Township, Shuangcheng City on April 19, 2001 for practicing Falun Gong. Later, she was sentenced to six years in prison. She is currently imprisoned at the Harbin Women's Prison. Their youngest son is now homeless.

Below is a letter that was sent out by Ms. Zhang Shufen from Harbin Women's Prison:


My name is Zhang Shufen. I was illegally sentenced to 6 years in prison in 2002 and I am imprisoned in the second team of the Harbin Women's Prison. Here I have experienced suffering and persecution. The prison police are extremely violent. They frequently hang us up by our wrists and place us in solitary confinement. What we eat is watered down rice gruel twice each day. Dafa practitioners are often handcuffed to a ring on the prison grounds. They are not allowed to sleep and are not covered with a blanket in cold weather. They are verbally abused and beaten all day. We are watched around the clock and not allowed to practice our exercises. If someone does the exercises, the guards incite the criminals to beat and threaten Dafa practitioners.

On March 10, 2003, I was hung by my wrists in a prison room from the top bunk of a bed. My toes just barely touched the ground. There were 14 other fellow practitioners suffering from this at the same time. The heads of the second team, Cui Hongmei and Xia Fengying, ordered the torture, and the criminals, instigated by policeman Zhou Ying, hung us up. Some fellow practitioners were hung until they lost consciousness and the handcuffs had cut into their flesh. On May 15, 2003, I was handcuffed with my hands behind my back for more than 20 hours.

Recently, news surfaced that Mr. Shi is now terribly thin because of the persecution. He cannot work and his life is in great danger. His family members strongly request that he be released. We especially send out this news to ask for help to rescue him as soon as possible.
