(Clearwisdom.net) All six of us in my family are firm Dafa practitioners, including my parents, two younger brothers and one younger sister. Since July 20, 1999, my family has gone to Beijing 3 times to appeal for Dafa, verifying Dafa with our lives. We have suffered severe persecution by the evil authorities. After our trip to Beijing appealing for Dafa in 2001, my father Chen Yunchuan was illegally sentenced to a 2-year prison term and detained at Shijiazhuang Prison. My mother is still missing. My younger brother Chen Aizhong was detained at Tangshan City Labor Camp, Hebei Province and was tortured to death on September 21, 2001. My younger sister was illegally detained at Gaoyang Labor Camp. Below is a report about my other brother, Chen Aili.

On August 28, 2001, both my father Chen Yunchuan and my younger brother Chen Aili were sentenced to 2 years in prison for their firm faith in Dafa, and sent to Shijiazhuang City Prison and Tangshan City Jidong Prison Unit No. 5 Subunit No. 7, respectively.

In the afternoon of December 26, 2001, officer Yu from Changping police station brought section chief Wang and team chief Huang from Tangshan's Jidong Prison to my home. Chief Wang told me that my younger brother was in bad health and needed to go to the hospital for treatment, they asked me to sign for the bond. I felt that it was a trick, so I asked, "When will you release him?" He said, "We are still in the process of applying." I asked, "Can I visit my younger brother?" He said, "Probably by next spring." I felt more suspicious and refused to sign.

On January 8, 2002, in order to find out what was going on, I went to Jidong Prison in Hebei Province to visit my younger brother. Another chief also named Wang told me "Your younger brother has withdrawn into himself since October 1, 2001. He will not talk to anyone, and only nod or shake his head when others talked to him, acting abnormal. His weight reduced from 120 Jin to 80 Jin [about 88 lbs] since the beginning of October. The hospital gave him an examination for free, and diagnosed him as having low immunity functionality from depression. This is the same symptom as your other brother, Chen Aizhong."

I told him, "Chen Aizhong was not sick, he died from torture. My younger brother Chen Aili is not sick either."

My brother was brought out. I noticed he looked like a dementia case, his face looked dark and his eyes had no expression. He simply nodded to me. I sat next to him, we did not talk for about 10 minutes. The guards were impatient. Chief Wang asked him to talk to me about our family. The first thing my younger brother said was, "I will practice Falun Gong to the end of my life." He asked about our family members, and said, "Take it easy. We have to keep practicing no matter what happens. I am not sick, they forced me to take medicine. I refused, so they force-fed me. Now there are 6 to 7 people watching me everyday."

The guards were shocked and afraid, so chief Huang took my younger brother away immediately.

I don't know what kind of medicine they were force-feeding Aili. I want to disclose the evil persecution here and tell people the gruesome truth about the situation in China.
