(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Liu Ruiqiu is sixty-two years old and lives in the Lixia District, Jinan City, Shandong Province. She is retired from the Jinan Semiconductor Research Institute. She suffered from all sorts of illnesses before she practiced Falun Dafa. After she began practicing in 1996, all her illnesses disappeared and she personally experienced the wonders of Dafa and its miraculous health effects. When the CCP began persecuting Dafa, she was persecuted numerous times.
In May 2006, Ms. Liu Ruiqiu was arrested while clarifying the truth. She was sentenced to a labor camp for one year and nine months. When she was held in the Jiangshuiquan Female Labor Camp, the guards from No.1 Battalion, Sun Juan, Sun Qunli and Geng Xiaomei brutally beat, cursed and insulted her. They also forced her to do slave labor. Ms. Liu Ruiqiu suffered injuries to her chest, legs and hands. The joints of her hands were swollen to the point of deformity. When she was released in January 2008, she discovered that her father had passed away one month before she was released. Her family had constantly requested to let her see her father a final time, but was refused each time.
In April 2008, Ms. Liu Ruiqiu was arrested again while clarifying the truth. She was sentenced to four years in prison on July 1, 2008 and is now held in Shandong Province Female Prison. She developed liver cancer under the inhumane conditions. Her family has been requesting her release to seek medical treatment, but their request was rejected by the prison authorities.
We are urgently appealing for help to have Ms. Liu Ruiqiu released.
