(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Bai Yuzhi, in her 40s, is a former member of the Jingxing County Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. Since she persisted in her belief in Falun Dafa, she has been detained in the Hebei Province Women's Prison. Due to long-term persecution, she became blind and throws up blood. She also almost died several times. At present she cannot take care of herself. Her family members applied for her release for medical treatment, but the prison authorities have kept putting off approval.
Since Ms. Bai refused to give up Falun Gong, she was detained many times and was sentenced to forced labor. She was detained in the Tangshan City Kaiping Forced Labor Camp and subjected to inhuman torment. Afterwards she held a hunger strike for more than 100 days. Her relatives and friends have appealed in every way for her release. As a result, she was released for medical treatment. Before she totally recovered, however, police officers dropped in to harass her some more. She was compelled to be destitute and homeless to avoid re-arrest.
In August 2002, she was taken away from her residence in Shijiazhuang City and sent to the Shijiazhuang City No. 2 Detention Center. In September 2002. She held a hunger strike to protest the persecution. She was force-fed and became critically ill several times. Her whole body developed edema. She was quite weak and could only lie in bed. She could not take care of herself.
At the beginning of 2003, she lost sight in both of her eyes. On April 10, 2003, she started to spit up blood. Despite her condition, the guards still did not stop force-feeding her. The detention center personnel reported to their superiors that she was critically ill. but the 610 Office did not relent. They turned down her family's request for release on bail and sentenced her to jail for four years. On May 19, 2003, Ms. Bai, together with Wang Yunman, was sent to the Shijiazhuang No. 2 Womens Prison. Later she was transferred to the Hebei Province Womens Prison.
For the last three years, her health has become worse and worse. Her family has requested her release on bail many times. The prison authorities used the excuse that higher authorities will not allow her release.
