(Clearwisdom.net) To avoid continued persecution, three years ago 68-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Sun Suying from Huainan City was compelled to escape from home and wander around. Then she was again illegally arrested and secretly sentenced to five years in prison. She is now incarcerated in the Suzhou Women's Prison in Anhui Province.

Ms. Sun Suying, 68 years old, is a retired official from the Huainan Coal Mine Machinery Factory in Anhui Province. She started to practice Falun Gong during the first six months of 1996. At the time, she was an accountant for the factory.

One day after the persecution started on July 20, 1999, using the ruse of "having a chat," Miao Xinhua, head of the 610 Office from the Xiejiaji District Political and Judiciary Committee and several people from the factory's security office lured Ms. Sun to the factory's hostel. They kept her there against her will for several days, threatened her and attempted to force her to give up Falun Dafa practice. Ms. Sun firmly refused their demands. They then brought in her children and got them to sign a "guarantee statement" that she would give up Falun Dafa practice. As a result, they released her. After she returned home and discovered this, Ms. Sun immediately declared to the officials that the guarantee her children had signed for her was null and void.

In November 2001, Miao Xinhua and others ordered the Machinery Factory to stop paying her monthly pension. To this day she is still not being paid.

On New Year's Day of 2002, Ms. Sun went to Beijing to appeal and clarify the truth about Falun Gong. She also connected with seven other women practitioners to go to Tiananmen Square to unfurl a banner reading, "Falun Dafa is Good!" As a result, the police detained the women and beat them cruelly. During their seven-day detention they had to sleep on the bare concrete floor. Ms. Sun contracted a long-term high fever, and was on the brink of death. After returning to Huainan, officials monitored and followed her wherever she went. In June 2002, she was detained again and sent to a brainwashing center located in the Dongshan Hotel in Huainan City. There she firmly resisted, and always maintained righteous thoughts and righteous actions. Finally, she broke out of the brainwashing center. She decided she had to escape from her home and wander from place to place to avoid further persecution.

In spite of being watched and monitored by police agents, she ignored her personal safety during her years in exile, firmly practiced Falun Dafa, firmly believed in Master and did Dafa work well, day and night. At the beginning of July 2005, after having been followed for a long time, she was again arrested. The officials later secretly sentenced her to five years in prison, which she is now serving in Anhui Province's Suzhou Women's Prison.
