Jilin Prison's Condition for Medical Parole: One Has to Be within Days of Death before Returning Home

February 15, 2005 |   By Falun Dafa practitioners in Jilin Province

(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Sun Changde from Changchun City was not able to take care of himself after extensive torture and abuse at the Jilin No. 2 Prison. His weight dropped from 200 pounds to around 140 pounds. His family had asked the prison officials to release him on a medical parole. Zhang Yong, a prison officer, said, "There are only two ways to obtain a medical parole. One is that you have a lot of money. We can do it even if there is no illness. The other is that the prisoner has only a few days to live. These are the prerequisites for a medical parole."

Mr. Sun Changde has been held in Ward No. 9 at the Jilin Prison for four years. He developed pneumonia in 2003 as a result of abuse. His eyesight was failing, and he also suffered from anemia and protrusion of the lumbar vertebrae. He could not walk unless others supported him, and once he passed out in the restroom.

Police Took Possession of Medical Examination Payment

On December 16, 2004, prison officers called Mr. Sun's home asking for money for his medical examination. The next day Mr. Sun's family members came to the prison. They did not see him until 3:00 p.m. They told him that they could not come up with enough money for his medical exam. All they had was 200 yuan, and later they borrowed 200 more from a friend.

Mr. Sun's family went to the prison and handed the 400 yuan to a female officer, telling her that the money was to be used for Mr. Sun's medical examination only and not for anything else. On January 8 they asked a friend to send in another 400 yuan, which was submitted to Zhang Yong. That night, the family called Mr. Sun in the ward and learned that he was never given any medical examination.

On January 10, Mr. Sun's family went to the prison meeting room again. Prison officer Zhang Yong asked them to whom they had turned in the initial 400 yuan. They told him and learned that their initial 400 yuan had not been deposited. A section director asked them to point out the officer who took the money. They immediately recognized the female officer, but she denied having accepted any money. It was quite apparent that she had pocketed the money.

The Jilin Prison is notorious for its inhumane treatment of Falun Dafa practitioners. In broad daylight and before witnesses, this officer dared to lie about keeping the life-saving payment from Mr. Sun's family.
