(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Luan Fusheng, a Falun Dafa practitioner in Shijiazhuang City, is imprisoned at Qi County Jail in Shanxi Province and was once again taken to the No.109 Hospital of the Public Security Bureau for emergency treatment. This is already the third time that the hospital has issued a critical condition notice for him, but the jail still refuses to release him with the excuse that releasing him on bail for medical treatment has not been approved yet.
Mr. Luan Fusheng is a 55-year-old resident of Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province. He previously worked for the Real Estate and Property Section of the Hebei Provincial Government. He started to practice Falun Dafa in 1995 and he benefited both physically and mentally. He recovered from severe diabetes and high blood pressure without the need of medical treatment.
In October 1999, Luan Fusheng went to Beijing to inform the authorities about the facts about Falun Gong. He was beaten relentlessly by Wei Ming, a local police officer from Xinghua Street, Qiaoxi District, Shijiazhuang City, and was handcuffed to a railing on a platform of the second floor. The police beat him to try to get a confession. He was also imprisoned in Beijiao Detention Center for thirty days.
In early December 2000, Luan Fusheng went to Beijing again to appeal according to his legal right. He was arrested again. Mr. Luan did not cooperate with the police and refused to give his address and name. He was tortured and released after several days. Later when Luan Fusheng visited a friend in another city, he was arrested and brought back to the local police station. He was imprisoned in No.1 Detention Center of Shijiazhuang City for over sixty days. He was then sentenced to one year in a forced-labor camp. Because his blood pressure was too high, he was allowed to serve the sentence at home and he was extorted out of 1,000 “yuan” by the local police station at Xinghua Street.
In 2001, because the local police station at Xinghua Street was plotting to send him to a forced-labor camp, Luan Fusheng was forced to leave home. He passed through many places and arrived in Shanxi Province.
In late October 2002, Luan Fusheng printed materials about Falun Gong and was subsequently arrested by police in Taiyuan City or Taigu County. Twenty-four Dafa practitioners were arrested at that time. This was when Ding Lihong, another Dafa practitioner from Shijiazhuang City, was tortured to death during a violent and brutal interrogation.
On July 7, 2003, Wanbolin District Court in Taiyuan City sentenced Luan Fusheng to eleven years of imprisonment. After four months, Luan Fusheng was imprisoned in the No. 13 ward of Jinzhong Prison, Shanxi Province and he has been imprisoned there since then.
Luan Fusheng deemed himself innocent and he appealed to the Taiyuan City Intermediate Court, which rejected his appeal in October of 2003.
Because of the cruel physical and mental torture and adverse living conditions in jail, Luan Fusheng's health condition has constantly worsened since 2005. He was brought to the No. 109 Hospital of the Public Security Bureau in Taiyuan City for emergency treatment many times. Before this most recent trip, the hospital had issued a critical condition notice for him twice. His family asked many times for his release on bail for medical treatment, but the warden used every imaginable excuse to turn down the request. On February 3, 2007, a member of his family went to jail to visit him. He was carried out on a criminal's back and his body was so feeble that he could barely speak a word. His life was in danger. Upon seeing this, his family requested again for his release on bail for medical treatment, but the warden answered with the excuse that they had already reported this to their boss.
On February 26, 2007, Luan Fusheng was again brought to the No. 109 Hospital of the Public Security Bureau for emergency treatment. He was diagnosed with late stage diabetes complications and tuberculosis. On the morning of February 28, the hospital issued a critical condition notice for him for the third time. Now, Luan Fusheng's entire body is swollen. He is unable to speak clearly and he is emaciated. He is paralyzed and bedridden. He is not able to take care of himself and he is looked after by a criminal who stays by his bed. Now he is not able to hold down food. As soon as he eats, the food goes straight through him without being digested. His organs function very feebly. His body is extremely weak and he could die at any moment.
His relatives had a premonition that Luan Fusheng's health condition was in danger and they went to Qi County Jail overnight to visit him and requested his release again.
This time under the strong demand from his family, they submitted a new application for a medical release. They were told that the jail had approved it and started to organize the reports for their boss. On March 4 however, the jail added the stipulation that it would not work unless Luan Fusheng's brother guaranteed it, and they must reapply for his medical release.
Since the first time when Luan Fusheng was issued a critical condition notice in 2005, his family had firmly requested a medical release many times, either face to face or in writing to the head of the jail and related leaders in Shanxi Provincial Jail Management Bureau using these words: Luan Fusheng is already fifty-six years old, and he has not had a single day of peace and quiet in eight years simply because he believes in Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance and he speaks the truth. His physical endurance and his mind have reached the limit. He has been in the late stage of diabetes for a long time. Any further stress to his body could cause diabetic complications and endanger his life at any moment. If his release is continually postponed and no effective measures are taken to sustain his life, there could be no chance for recovery by medical treatment. The jail has been refusing to release him with the excuse that a Falun Gong practitioner is not allowed to be released on bail for medical treatment. Even today when the third critical condition notice for him was issued, the jail still did not release him. If anything unfortunate happens to Luan Fusheng, those responsible people employed by the jail must be charged with “intentional postponement of medical treatment and murder.”
