(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Chen Xin, 42, had hepatitis B prior to practicing Falun Gong. Since he started practicing Falun Gong, his illness disappeared without a trace. Nine years ago, Mr. Chen was sentenced to 13 years in prison for practicing Falun Gong. He was transferred to the Jinzhou City Nanshan Prison four years ago. He is currently being incarcerated in the prison's First Ward.
Mr. Chen was in “strict management” for a long time just because he refused to renounce Falun Gong. It's been two years since his family last saw him.
His mother recently traveled about 230 miles from Dalian City to Jinzhou City to visit her son. Warden Cui Yuanqi and chief Liu Tao denied her request to visit her son every time she went to the prison. She stayed at a hotel in Jinzhou for five days and had to leave in tears.
In order to force practitioners to “transform”, the prison administration used many different torture methods. Warden Cui Yuanqi moved to the First Ward to try to “transform” Mr. Chen.
