Engineer Sentenced to Eight Years in Prison--His Wife Recently Arrested, Leaving a Young Daughter Alone at Home

November 03, 2011 |   By a Clearwisdom correspondent from Hebei Province

(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Liu Yongwang is about 40 years old, and previously worked as a chief engineer at a foreign-based company in Beijing. When he was arrested in 2000, the authorities threatened his workplace that they would not be allowed to do business in China unless they dismissed him from his job.

Mr. Liu was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2006, and is currently detained at the first division of Jidong Prison in Tangshan City. Guard Zheng Yajun locked him in an empty room for eight consecutive months and ordered 14 inmates to torture him.

Lawyers Cheng Hai and Li Lun, who were hired by Mr. Liu's family, went to the prison to meet with Mr. Liu in August 2010. Prison guards monitored the entire meeting, but Mr. Liu was able to give the lawyers a signed statement listing his mistreatment in the prison. After the lawyers left, the guards didn't allow Mr. Liu's family to visit him for one year.

Mr. Liu's lawyers and family members have repeatedly filed complaints with the authorities and exposed how the prison guards torture practitioners. Mr. Liu also reported Zheng Yajun to the authorities for torturing him in prison. Zheng was eventually removed from his position.

Ms. Qi Shuying, Mr. Liu's wife, is from Baoding in Hebei Province. She is a professor at the Department of Physical Education at Baoding University. At around 8:30 p.m. on October 7, 2011, she was at home with her daughter when the electricity suddenly went out. When they opened the door to check the electric meter, more than half a dozen police officers were waiting, and forced their way in. They ransacked the home. They confiscated their printer, computer, Falun Gong books, and other personal belongings. Ms. Qi was taken away by the police, leaving her young daughter alone at home, without anyone to care for her. Ms. Qi was taken to a brainwashing center.
