(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Luo Wenbin from Luojiaji, Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province, was taken into custody on Sept. 17, 2009 and thrown into prison for seven years. He is currently being persecuted in the rigorous control unit in Nanchang Prison.

Mr. Luo is a 34-year-old college graduate and former teacher of the Juojia First Middle School in Qingshan District. He was so highly regarded that he was named an outstanding teacher. He started practicing Falun Gong in March 1999 and has remained steadfast despite being subjected to numerous illegal detentions. He was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2000. Upon release from Yuzhang Prison in 2007, he lost his job. All of his ID, including his graduate certificate and teaching certificate, were confiscated by officers from the Qingshan Police Station. Years of persecution in jail devastated his health. He wasn't able to find a job.

Mr. Luo was writing “Falun Dafa Is Good” on a light pole on Sept. 17, 2009, when officers from the Xujiafang Police Station arrested him and threw him into the Nanchang City Second Detention Center. He was later sentenced to seven years in Nanchang Prison.

The rigorous control unit of Nanchang Prison is a horrible den. The unit head openly told the guards, “If you don't know how to beat up people, you are not worth your pay.” In order to please the unit head the guards persecute Falun Gong practitioners without any restraint.

Luo Dongping, head of the fifth team in Nanchang Prison, sent Luo Wenbin to the rigorous control unit. As a form of abuse, Mr. Luo Wenbin was forced to recite prison regulations while facing a wall. He wasn't allowed to go to sleep until 11 p.m. and he had to answer roll calls every half hour. He wasn't allowed to sleep at night because he had to answer roll calls.

Mr. Luo Wenbin was also handcuffed and hung up day in and day out. He was only allowed to help himself when he had to relieve his bowels. For anything else, including drinking, eating and urination, he had to ask others for help [because he was handcuffed]. After being hung up for three days, he lost sensation in his hands and feet.
