Imprisoned Woman with Stomach Problem Denied Sustenance for 15 Days
(Minghui.org) Ms. Wang Aihua has been detained in the Youyang Detention Center in Chongqing City for over 4 months. She was deliberately starved for 15 days after she developed a stomach problem and was unable to eat solid food. She lost a lot of weight and was so weak that she was unable to look after herself.
Ms. Wang was arrested on June 1 for distributing informational materials clarifying the facts about Falun Gong. The police bragged that they got rewards for arresting Falun Gong practitioners. They even harassed Ms. Yu Sufen, in her 70s, on September 12 because she had once provided lodging to Ms. Wang.
On the night of July 15, after she'd been detained for more than a month, Ms. Wang suddenly had severe stomach pain. She was taken to the county hospital the next day. Doctors there said she needed to be hospitalized, but detention center officials refused to allow it. Ms. Wang was taken back to the detention center, where doctors put her on an IV and told her that she could only have porridge while she was sick.
Ms. Wang requested porridge on July 17, but was denied. Unable to eat solid food, she did not eat for three days, until July 20, when the guards promised to provide porridge for a week.
Political instructor Fan Ping canceled the porridge order on July 23, claiming, “Even our officials do not get such special treatment.” Ms. Wang went hungry for the next 12 days, until she was well enough to eat solid food again. During the 12-day ordeal, she tried to eat instant noodles, but she threw up everything.
Ms. Wang Aihua was starved for a total of 15 days while she was ill. Even though she was so weak and thin that she couldn't take care of herself, officials still interrogated her on the afternoon of July 26.
