Mr. Hou Yanshuang in Critical Condition after Spending Nine Years in Prison

October 08, 2010 |   By a Clearwisdom correspondent from Liaoning Province, China

(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Hou Yanshuang, 50 years old, is a practitioner from Lingyuan in Liaoning Province. He has been detained in the 7th Team of the No. 1 Shenyang Prison for nine years. Due to the ill treatment that he has suffered, Mr. Hou is now in critical condition.

Mr. Hou's family received a call from the prison authorities on September 17, 2010, notifying them that Mr. Hou's health had deteriorated and that he had asked to see his family. When Mr. Hou's wife, son, and other relatives went to the prison to visit him on September 19, Mr. Hou was struggling to breathe properly and was not able to speak. He handed three notes to his wife. When the guards saw the notes, they demanded that she hand them over, but she refused. A dozen guards immediately surrounded her, and the entrance and exit to the prison were locked down.

After being harassed by the guards, Mr. Hou's wife and son were eventually allowed to leave the prison. They said that the notes contained the results of his medical exam, stating that Mr. Hou had severe cerebral thrombosis, extremely high blood pressure, and a tumor in his throat. His family urgently requested that Mr. Hou be released on bail so that he could receive medical treatment. However, the prison warden said that they would not release him as long as he didn't give up his belief in Falun Gong. They also would not allow any of his family to stay in the prison to take care of him.

Mr. Hou's family received a message on the evening of September 26, stating that his condition had seriously deteriorated, yet still no one was allowed to take care of him.
