(Clearwisdom.net) On November 23, 2005, the Minghui website reported that the 97-year old father of Falun Gong practitioner Tian Fujin from Tongliao City, Inner Mongolia was severely ill and bedridden. He was expecting his son and granddaughter to come home and see him, but both were in prison. The Wuyuan Forced Labor Camp, however, refused to release them.

At 7:00 p.m. on November 18, 2005, Tian Fujin's father died. Tian Fujin and his daughter did not see him before he passed away. His 81-year old mother and other family members and friends of Tian Fujin had eagerly awaited his return.

Mr. Tian Fujin is 55 years old. He was the former vice president of the Leather Factory of Tongliao City. For practicing Falun Gong, he was illegally sentenced to five years in prison. His family has been torn apart for the last six years, and six of his family members were subjected to persecution and sentenced to forced labor camps and prisons. Family members were separated from one another, their business went bankrupt, and their savings were exhausted.

Tian Fujin was sentenced to a forced labor camp twice for a total of five years. He is still being persecuted at the Wuyuan Forced Labor Camp in Inner Mongolia. His first daughter Tian Fang and third daughter Tian Miao were sentenced for four and six years, respectively. Both are being persecuted at the Women's Prison of Huhhot City in Inner Mongolia.

We appeal to all righteous people to rescue Tian Fujin's family and help all of the innocent Falun Gong practitioners who are being persecuted.
