(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Wan Xiuying, 60, is a practitioner from Tongliao City, Inner Mongolia Province. She is showing severe illness symptoms, including high blood pressure, numbness in her right leg, and rapid heartbeat, after being severely persecuted in Tumuji Forced Labor Camp. Ms. Wan is unable to go downstairs and needs someone to bring her meals to her. Nonetheless, the labor camp officials have refused to release her.
On December 8, 2006, the police arrested Ms. Wan on the train from Tongliao City to Hailaer City. She was then sentenced to two years of forced labor and detained in Tumuji Forced Labor Camp.
Ms. Wan has been arrested and detained several times. She was detained in Hexi Detention Center in Tongliao City three times and detained in a brainwashing center once. In one case, she was arrested at the gate of her house. Another time, police broke into her home, arrested her, then detained her at the Tongliao Police Department for three days. The police have ransacked her home five times. Her telephone was monitored, and she was followed when she went out. During the holidays, officials from the local residential committee and local police officers routinely went to her house to harass her. Moreover, they also went to her son's home and her daughter-in-law's parents' home to harass them.
Ms. Wan's daughter, Ms. Wang Ying, is also a practitioner and was a teacher at the Tongliao City Experimental Elementary School. She had been detained several times and sentenced to three years of forced labor. In Hexi Prison in Tongliao City and in Tumuji Forced Labor Camp, Ms. Wang was brutally tortured by being shackled, tied to a bed, hung up by handcuffs, beaten with bats, shocked with two electric batons, and beaten by multiple people. In the end, Ms. Wang was tortured to the point that she lost her hearing, showed symptoms of myocarditis, and a CT scan showed shadows inside her head. When she was on the verge of death, officials of the Tumuji Forced Labor Camp released her in January 2008.
