Mr. Yu Huinan Dies from Torture at Suzhou Prison; Mr. Chen Guang in Coma for Six Months
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Yu Huinan from Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province was tortured at the Suzhou Prison for five years. He died on January 4, 2006. His wife and two daughters are illegally incarcerated. Following are details:
Yu Huinan was 60 years old and lived in Room 403, Building 5, at No. 12 Muxingqiao near the New Muxing Residential Neighborhood in the Canglang District, Suzhou City. He was a member of the Suzhou City Science Committee. He learned Dafa in a class held in Jinan City in 1994.
In late December 2000, officers from the Canglang District Police Department in Suzhou City illegally arrested him. His daughters Yu Qin and Yu Fang were also arrested. In March 2001, Yu Fang was sentenced to three years of forced labor. In October 2001 Yu Huinan and his older daughter Yu Qin were sentenced to eight years and seven years in prison, respectively.
Mr. Yu Huinan was savagely tortured in the Suzhou Prison, but he persisted to practice his righteous belief in Falun Dafa. In March 2004 Canglang District police agents illegally arrested his wife Weng Jianzhen and sentenced her to one year of forced labor.
Yu Huinan and his whole family were incarcerated and tortured by the Communist regime.
On December 21, 2005 Yu Huinan was tortured to the brink of death at the Suzhou Prison. Prison officials sent him to the No. 5 People's Hospital in Suzhou City for emergency treatment, but he passed away on the evening of January 4, 2006.
Suzhou Prison usually only accepts criminals with sentences of ten years or longer. It has been used as a long-term facility to persecute Dafa practitioners. The prison authorities order two or three inmates to watch each practitioner upon arrival. They strictly monitor the practitioners and forbid them to talk about Falun Gong-related things.
Practitioner Chen Guang, former manager of the Lianyungang City branch of the China Construction Bank and deputy head of the Computer Section, was sentenced to eight years in prison for practicing Falun Gong. He was sent to Suzhou Prison. Mr. Chen suffered severe brain damage on July 29, 2005 and has already been in a deep coma for six months. Police constantly monitor him at the Brain and Neurosurgery Division of the No. 1 Hospital Affiliated with Suzhou University. His family is not permitted to take care of him.
