(Minghui.org) Mr. Ye Jianguo was sentenced to 11 1/2 years in prison in the Jianyang District Court on October 18, 2013, because of his belief in Falun Gong. He filed an appeal, which the Ziyang Intermediate Court rejected.
In Jiazhou Prison, the guards have tried to brainwash him by forcing him to listen to and read materials defaming Falun Gong. They order him to write statements to denounce his belief.
When Mr. Ye was held in Ward 9, inmates appointed to monitor him pretended to be nice initially. But when he refused to follow their orders, they threatened and tortured him.
He was forced to stand at attention from morning till dusk and kicked if he made the slightest move. He now has difficulty walking.
They forced him to stand out in the freezing cold after removing his clothes, and he got severe frostbite.
He was later moved to Ward 7 to do slave labor.
