Ms. Wang Yu from Wuhan City Arrested and Sentenced to Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Wang Yu is only 18 years old and lives in Xihu District of Wuhan City, Hubei Province. Around March 20, 2009, she was arrested and sentenced to one year at the Hewan Forced Labor Camp.
At around 3:00 p.m. on February 17, while Wang Yu was giving out Chinese New Year Spectacular DVD's in Xindongmian Food Market, she was arrested by officers from the Xingou Township Police Station. She was subsequently detained for ten days at the Xihu District Police Department of Wuhan City.
When Wang Yu's family members went there to pick her up after her detention period was completed, they were told that Wang Yu had been transferred to another location. After inquiring, they were told that Wang Yu was transferred to Etouwan Brainwashing Center. At the brainwashing center, Wang Yu was jailed in a separate room and closely monitored. She was followed even when she used the restroom. Wang Yu's parents sought her release, but their requests were rejected. The excuse given was that she was not willing to admit her mistake and give up her belief. The parents were told that she wouldn't be released until she writes a guarantee statement promising to give up her belief.
During this period, Wang Yu's parents went to the 610 Office of Xihu District and Xindongmian Police Department many times to request the release of their daughter. Not only were their requests rejected, but they were harassed at home by officers from the Dongmian Police Department. As a result, Wang Yu's father was forced to become homeless to avoid arrest.
Wang Yu is only 18 years old and was sentenced to a one-year term in Hewan Forced Labor Camp. On around March 20, she was secretly transferred to the Sixth Team of Hewan Forced Labor Camp and subjected to further persecution.
