(Clearwisdom.net) On December 9, 2006, practitioner Ms. Yang Chunling from Dalian City was transferred from Liaoyang City Detention Center to the Women's Prison of Liaoning Province in Shenyang City. She is detained in the 11th Ward where she is suffering from intense persecution.

Due to her firm belief in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" and her kindhearted effort to persuade the Ward Head to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), she was brutally beaten by three women prisoners. The beating fractured her arm again. She said that her arm was broken before when she was imprisoned in Dalian City. A doctor had removed the steel plate in her arm a few days before she was transferred to the prison. This time the doctor said the fracture was very serious as it had occurred at the same location where her arm had broken before from a beating in the detention center. The nerve damage might be permanent, which means that her arm might be crippled. They wrapped her arm in plaster and waited to see if her condition would improve.

Ms. Yang told the guards that she would report the beating. Her action was motivated by the guards, who denied the beating. The guards lied, saying that Ms. Yang broke her own arm. The prison administration was quiet about this incident. Ms. Yang is in ill health and malnourished. She needs help walking.

The mistreatment of Ms. Yang is only one example of the barbaric brutalities happening in Liaoning Province Women's Prison. We call for all people with conscience to pay attention to the persecution in Liaoning Province's Women's Prison so that justice can be served.
