The 610 office in Guangzhou city ignores her appeals and recently transferred her to Guangdong Women's Prison.

Recent picture of Wang Ying

Wang Ying is fifty years old. She was born to an intellectual family. Her father is a professor at the Chinese Academy of Science. Her mother was a teacher (she passed away in 2002, while Wang Ying was being detained). Her husband is the chief of the Kaolin project in the Earth Chemistry Institute of the Chinese Academy of Science. He is an expert in kaolin and kaolinite processing.

In August of 1988, Wang Ying suffered from kidney disease. After the treatment failed, she developed uremia and her life was in great danger. In 1995, she started practicing Falun Gong. Within one month, all of her symptoms disappeared, and she became healthy. Since then, she has strictly followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and has become a kinder person.

Since she started practicing Falun Gong, Wang Ying has become more diligent in her work. She was praised by her colleagues and authorities. She has been in charge of the analysis of laser spectroscopy at the Earth Chemistry Institute of the Chinese Academy of Science since 1990. Because of the accuracy of her test results, she is influential in the field of precious stone appraisals. Being kind and responsible, she has achieved excellence in her work. Since 2004, she has been awarded the "Outstanding worker"in the scientific equipment field in the Guangzhou area for five consecutive years. She is also a good wife and mother.

However, since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, Wang Ying's family has been harassed. She was detained in a forced labor camp from July 2000 to August 2002. In April 2008 she once again was detained at Guangzhou city Tianhe detention center. In addition, she was brought to court and sentenced to three years in prison.

The equipment that Wang Ying was in charge of (made in England and is worth over two million Yuan) has been left unused during the past year. This prominent scientist is brutally tortured in a detention center because of her belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. On many occasions, she suffered various punishments including been handcuffed and chained up for a long time because she practiced the exercises.

We call on people in China and overseas to look into the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Together we will stop the torture of innocent people.
