(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Chu Liwen, from Taibaozhuang Town, Changyi City, Weifang, Shandong Province, was illegally arrested in 2003 because he firmly cultivated and practiced Dafa. He was transferred to several lockups in the Weifang area, and was later illegally sentenced to five years in prison. He is now being detained in Weibei Prison. On the morning of March 30, 2005, when Mr. Chu's son, Dafa practitioner Mr. Chu Qinghua and his younger sister went to Weibei Prison to visit their father, he was arrested and sent to the local police station. Chu Qinghua was secretly sentenced to forced labor for two and a half years and is now detained in Wangcun Forced Labor Camp.

In Weibei Prison, Mr. Chu Liwen suffered from inhuman torture. Four to five prison guards simultaneously used electric batons to shock him, and handcuffed and kicked him. In addition, they used iron bars to clamp together both of his legs. He was tortured this way for more than two months, such that his body was disfigured in several places and he became unable to walk. Mr. Chu eventually had to be carried out of the torture chamber by the guards.

More than six months passed before his son Chu Qinghua got this news. Chu Qinghua firmly requested to visit his father many times. After going through numerous levels of government departments, he was finally allowed to see his father in the winter of 2004. His father was emaciated and frail, and his voice quavered when he spoke. After a short ten-minute meeting, Chu Qinghua was forced to leave.

On the morning of March 30, 2005, Chu Qinghua and his younger sister went to Weibei Prison to visit their father again. On this occasion they did not need to go through any formalities and the prison guards did not make things difficult for either of them - they were promptly granted access to their father. After the ten-minute meeting, both the brother and the sister were ready to leave; however, in order to stall for time, the prison guards asked them to stay a while. Neither of them realized this was a trap, so they stayed longer.

After the meeting, both of them got up to leave. A prison guard stopped them and said they had some matters to discuss with them. They entered a room and were immediately held by 4 to 5 prison guards. They were taken to the local police station that same day.

At the police station, both the brother and sister were locked up separately in small rooms. There they were interrogated and cruelly beaten. Because the younger sister did not practice Falun Gong, she was released in the afternoon. Chu Qinghua was sent to a forced labor camp for two and a half years, and is now detained at the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp.
