Recent Information on Mr. Wang Youjiang, a Former Squadron Leader Who Was Sentenced to 10 Years
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Wang Youjiang, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Lanzhou City, Gansu Province, was illegally sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in 2001. He is now detained at Dashaping Prison in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province. Due to long-term abuse, his hair has turned gray at a young age.
Mr. Wang, 38, is a former squadron leader from the Communication Team of the Lanzhou City Army Division. He started to practice Falun Dafa in 1998. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, Mr. Wang was arrested and detained many times for going to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa. He tried to go to Beijing again in December 2000 but was arrested on his way and taken to the Zhongwei Train Station in Ningxia Province. After one day of detention, he was transferred to the Taoshuping Detention Center in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province where he was detained for one week.
On March 6, 2001, Mr. Wang was reported and arrested. A truth-clarification materials production site was destroyed, and his direct loss totaled over 100,000 yuan. He was detained in the Xiguoshuyuan Detention Center. The guards hit and kicked him and forced him to do extended periods of hard labor and deprived him of sleep. Because of the torture, Mr. Wang lost his ability to stand. He was transferred to the Si'ergou Detention Center.
In July 2001, Mr. Wang was secretly sentenced to 10 years without trial. Because he went on a protest hunger strike for a long period and was subjected to various torture methods, he became very weak and was taken to the Dashaping Prison Hospital. He was sent back to prison after he had shown a slight improvement in his health.
In 2006, Mr. Wang's family members' request for his medical parole was approved by Lanzhou City after much effort. However, the Yongdeng County Police Department rejected the request, claiming that when he is released for medical treatment, he cannot go home. The authorities from the police department said, "However he left the prison, we will take him back to the prison in the same way."
