Retired Female Physician Secretly Sentenced to Five Years in Prison; Incarcerated in Guizhou Province No. 1 Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zou Jinying, 63, is a retired physician of the Guizhou Aluminum Plant Employee Hospital. On February 18, 2011, Ms. Zou was arrested by officers from the Dalu Town Police Station in Daozhen County, Zunyi City, Guizhou Province, for speaking with people about Falun Gong while visiting her hometown in Daozhen County. She was held at the Daozhen County Detention Center.
After inquiring for information through many avenues, her family recently learned that Ms. Zou had been sentenced to five years in prison by the Daozhen County Court and was taken to the Guizhou Province No. 1 Prison on October 11, 2011. However, the family had never received any official notice from the authorities.
Guizhou Province No. 1 Prison, formerly Yang'ai Prison, has a notorious reputation. According to incomplete statistics, several Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death in the Guizhou Province No. 1 Prison.
Disabled practitioner Ms. Gao Qiying, 40, was arrested and sentenced in 2008. She was tortured to death in the Yang'ai Prison on February 11, 2010.
Ms. Xu Jiarong, 61, a teller of the Anshun Herb Company, was arrested in July 2001 and sentenced to seven years in prison. She was tortured in the Yang'ai Prison until she could not take care of herself. She died shortly after her release on May 13, 2008.
Ms. Wei Yalan, 50, from Anshun City, was arrested in June 2001 and sentenced to a five-year prison term. Her physical condition had deteriorated dramatically and she was in poor health when released after years in Yang'ai Prison. On September 14, 2007, Ms. Wei passed away, shortly after her release.
Ms. Yang Hongyan, 40, an employee of the Duyun City Textile Factory, was arrested in November 2000. She was sentenced to 4 years in prison in 2001. She died on July 29, 2004 in the Yang'ai Prison as a result of the persecution.
