Urgent Rescue: New York Resident's Brother Hu Zhiming Is Very Weak After Seven Month Hunger Strike in Jinzhou Prison, Liaoning Province

November 27, 2006 |   By New York Resident Hu Zhihua

My younger brother Hu Zhiming is a Falun Dafa practitioner, and he is now detained in the Nanshan Prison in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. Several days ago, my older brother visited him and found that Hu Zhiming was very weak; both of his legs muscles had atrophied due to being unable to move for a long time, and he is in critical condition.

Hu Zhiming started his hunger strike after being detained in Haidian District Detention Center in Beijing in April 2006. He has been on hunger strike continuously for seven months. The Nanshan Prison Administration refuses to release him, and they conduct brutal force-feeding.

According to Minghui.net reports, Falun Dafa practitioners have been cruelly tortured in Nanshan Prison all the time. Mr. Cui Zhilin and Mr. Xin Minduo were both tortured to death there, and they died on August 5, 2004, and September 1, 2006 respectively.

Early on the morning of November 21, 2006, I called the Nanshan Prison Head, Xin Tingquan, (male) several times. At first he said he did not know anything and hung up on me. Later he said that the number was the driver's office then hung up again. The third time he said China had a constitution to protect its citizens; the prisoners are treated well and no one dares to torture them. We have revealed many torture cases on Minghui.net, and there were those two practitioners that have been already tortured to death in the prison. Xin Tingquan said, "What can we do if he refuses to eat? They were like that before they were transferred to our prison." Later when I called again, he said he did not have the power to release prisoners unless the court or the Procuratorate gave the order. I told him, "Now my brother is in your prison, so if his life is in danger you cannot escape the responsibility."

The prison administration asked my family to help them brainwash my brother Hu Zhiming, who is on hunger strike to protest the detention. Now the evil is trying to have my family members move to Jinzhou City from our hometown, Dandong City.

My brother Hu Zhiming received his Master's Degree in 1997, and he was employed by the Computer Lab of the Beijing Air-force Equipment Research Institute. He is a Major. After the CCP started persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners in 1999, his employer forced him to retire in 2000, and he was detained in Tilanqiao Prison in Shanghai City for four years. Upon being released, he found a job in a high-tech company in Beijing, but he was arrested in September 2005 because he revealed the truth of the persecution. He was missing for a long time, and finally my family found him detained in Haidian District Detention Center.
