1. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Torture of Practitioner Wang Yuling
Practitioner Ms. Wang Yuling, 48 years old, is from Dongfeng County, Jilin Province. She had joined in the effort of tapping into the Changchun TV network to broadcast a video clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. At the end of 2002, she was sentenced to 13 years of imprisonment. Currently Wang Yuling is being held at the city's Tiebei Forced Labor Camp Hospital, where she has been tortured. She was hung up by the police from her handcuffs and later subjected to the Tiger Bench.
Due to severe torture, Wang Yuling has become so weak that she cannot take care of herself and is suffering from severe heart problems. Her life is in imminent danger. No one is taking care of her in the hospital, since the police are not allowing her family to visit her. The authorities in the Shuangyang No. 3 Detention Center agreed to let her serve her 13-year sentence outside prison, but officials from the former Chaoyang District Court and Chaoyang District's Prosecutor's Office have not agreed to release her.
