(Clearwisdom.net) Several months ago, Falun Dafa practitioners imprisoned at the Deyang Prison in Sichuan Province were allowed to call home, and family members were allowed to visit. However, since February 12, 2007, Lin Xiaoquan's family members were forbidden to see him.

Mr. Lin Xiaoquan is forty-two years old. He lives at Qingshi Village in Xinnong Township, Xindu District, Chengdu City. Mr. Lin started practicing Falun Gong in December 1999. Many of his neighbors said Falun Gong practice had turned him into an exceptionally good person.

Lin Xiaoquan went to Beijing in January 2000 to appeal for Falun Gong and was jailed for 15 days in the Xindu District Detention Center. Chengdu police arrested him in September of 2000 when he was distributing truth-clarification materials. He was jailed in the Longquanyi Detention Center and Pi County Detention Center. The persecutors later on sentenced him to one and a half years in the Xinhua Forced Labor Camp at Xinhua City. Mr. Lin Xiaoquan suffered inhuman persecution during this period.

When arrested, Mr. Lin wore only two shirts and one pair of pants. He had no bedding. In the freezing winter he had to curl up into a ball to keep warm. The police deprived him of sleep for 70 days. Sometimes the police ordered inmates to pull on his genitals to torture him. Despite the torture, Mr. Lin refused to give up his faith.

On July 28, 2005, Xindu district police agents again arrested Mr. Lin Xiaoquan. He was first jailed in the Xindu District Detention Center for seven months. On February 23, 2006, Xindu District Court officials sentenced him to three years in prison.

When Mr. Lin's family members went to the police station to seek Mr. Lin's release, the police lied, saying they had not arrested him, and that it was the Chengdu City police who arrested him. The also said, "If you insist on his release, we will arrest you too!"

Mr. Lin's family members had not seen him for more than two months and they are very worried about his safety. It is known that if a practitioner is forbidden to see family members, most likely he is confined in a solitary compartment and suffering cruel abuse or has been tortured so severely that the police do not want others to see his condition.

We hope local practitioners strengthen their sending forth righteous thoughts and help rescue Mr. Lin Xiaoquan.
