(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Ding Guoying, in his thirties, was an elementary school teacher in Zhangchang Village, Gaocun Township, Xingyang City, Henan Province. Ever since beginning Falun Gong practice, he led his life based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. One day when he was explaining the meaning of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" in his class, he was illegally arrested and taken to a detention center by the Gaocun Police Station and the township comprehensive management office. Five months later, he was illegally sentenced without trial to seven years in prison, and his family members were not even notified. He was taken to the Xinmi Prison to be further persecuted.
After many inquiries from different parties, Mr. Ding Guoying's family members found out about the situation. His mother hurried to the Xinmi Prison to visit her son. It was chilly winter weather, and Guoying only wore a shirt. He did not say a word when he met his family, as if he was meeting strangers. Ding Guoying's mother was anguished seeing her son in this condition. Nevertheless, Mr. Ding continued to be tortured inhumanly in prison. Each time his mother visited him, she could see that his condition has not improved.
Several years later, Mr. Ding's grandmother passed away due to illness and the grief from missing her grandson. His mother and brother make a living by working several hectares of land.
In June 2006, the team head named Liu from the Xinmi Prison, Henan Province came unexpectedly to visit Zhangchang Village in Gaocun Township, Xingyang City. He said, "Ding Guoying has a mental disorder, he is mentally traumatized. We will study his case and release him for medical treatment in one to two months."
Eight or nine months have passed, and the Xinmi Prison still has not released Mr. Ding, only because Ding Guoying's family did not give money to the prison officials. When Ding Guoying's mother went to see the team head, he refused to release her son and said, "Ding Guoying does not meet the requirement for release on medical bail." His purpose was to extort money from the family, so they did not release him.
