( (By a correspondent from Jiamusi City) Mr. Fu Yu, a Falun Gong practitioner from Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province, has been tortured for a long time in the Jiamusi City Prison and is currently in critical condition. His 70-year-old mother has sought his release through various channels, but to no avail.

Fu Yu's Mother

When Mr. Fu Yu used a small loudspeaker to inform the public about the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong, he was illegally arrestedand taken to a detention center on February 8, 2009. The police brutally tortured him in order to coerce a "confession." On July 7, 2009, the court held a trial in the detention center and sentenced Mr. Fu to five years of imprisonment. He was transferred to the Jiamusi City Prison on August 20, 2009.

Mr. Fu has gone on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. In August, he was taken to the Jiamusi City Prison Hospital.

Mr. Fu's mother went to the prison many times, but each time she was unable to see her son. After seeking his release through various channels, she was finally allowed to see him on a single occasion, and then only under the watchful eyes of guards. Mr. Fu had to be carried out on someone's back. His eyes were sunken and his voice weak. When his mother saw him, she started crying and couldn't speak. Urged by the guards, she left.

When Mr. Fu's mother went to the prison again, guard Zhang Qingfeng from the education and "reform" section shouted at her, "Your son does not eat anything, so he is not allowed to see anyone!" When the person that accompanied Mr. Fu's mother to the prison explained to the guard that Mr. Fu shouldn't be treated that way, Zhang ignored the suggestion and said, "I work for the Party and the Party gives me money, so I listen to it and do things on its behalf." He also shouted, "If you don't get out of here fast, I will call the police to arrest you!"

Mr. Fu's condition is critical. He vomits and is in a coma. The doctor is unable to get him on an IV, and the prison still refuses to release him.
