(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Cui Hongyan from Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province, was illegally arrested on November 1, 2006. Officers from the Tieren Police Department in Daqing City participated in the arrest. She was taken to the Daqing City Detention Center where she has been held for nearly three months. Saertu District Court in Daqing City tried her on December 12, 2006. The court adjourned after examining and discussing the case. Saertu Court announced after January 1, 2007, that Cui Hongyan was sentenced to three years in prison.

Ms. Cui appealed the verdict and went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The hunger strike has lasted one month. Wrapped in a quilt, she is carried back and forth twice a day at the detention center for nasal force-feeding. She now suffers from stomachaches, and there are traces of blood in her vomit. Her eyes are bloodshot. She is skin and bones and she is too weak to move by herself.

Officials from the Heilongjiang Province Department of Public Security went to the Daqing Detention Center. Cui Hongyan's family took the chance and also went to see her. Detention Center head Yang Baomin said, "We have orders from above; we cannot let you see her!" Her family said, "Cui Hongyan is ill from persecution. We must see her. Who is responsible if she dies?" Yang Baomin said, "Cui Hongyan is fine right now. If anything happens to her, we will call you." Ms. Cui's family has never been allowed to see her since her arrest and detention.

Justice-loving people in the world, please help stop this brutal persecution.
