2. [Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region] Mr. Wang Desheng Illegally Sentenced to Long-term Imprisonment, His Wife Mrs. Shan Jidan Imprisoned
Practitioner Mr. Wang Desheng previously worked for the Zhongning County Electricity Plant in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. He started practicing Falun Dafa in 1993. After the persecution of Falun Dafa started on July 20, 1999, Mr. Wang went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong, and was illegally arrested and sentenced to four years of imprisonment. Because Mr. Wang steadfastly practices Falun Dafa, he held in several prisons, where he was brutally tortured and forced to carry out strenuous forced labor. On the very day he was released from prison, Mr. Wang was put into a brainwashing center.
On January 6, 2005, Mr. Wang Desheng was arrested by the Yinchuan City Police Department. In order to force Mr. Wang Desheng to reveal the sites where Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials are produced, as well as the whereabouts of other fellow practitioners, the police officers brutally tortured him for ten days. The court recently sentenced Mr. Wang Desheng to eight years of imprisonment. Mr. Wang is being held in the Eighth Division of the Shizuishan Prison (the former Pingluo County Prison).
Practitioner Mrs. Shan Jidan, who is Mr. Wang Desheng's wife, was illegally sentenced to three years of forced labor because she went Beijing to appeal after July 20, 1999. Her release from the forced labor camp was delayed. After Mrs. Shan was released, she was immediately put into a brainwashing center, where she was tortured. Later, Mrs. Shan repeatedly became the target of arrest by the local 610 Office for clarifying the truth and distributing the truth-clarification materials, and therefore had to leave home to avoid being arrested. On November 5, 2004, Mrs. Shan was arrested by the police from the Yongning County Police Department of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, when she was distributing truth-clarification materials. Mrs. Shan was illegally sentenced to three years of imprisonment and currently is being held in the Women's Prison of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
