Liaoning Woman Arrested Again for Her Faith
(Minghui.org) A Chaoyang County resident was arrested again for talking to people about Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.
Ms. Li Guixia’s latest arrest on September 30 is preceded by three prior arrests and a five-year-long-imprisonment since the persecution began in 1999.
Once a hot-tempered woman, Ms. Li became more easy-going, pleasant and tolerant after she began practicing Falun Gong. Her breast tumor and other ailments also disappeared not long into her practice.
Having had first-hand experience with Falun Gong, Ms. Li never hesitated to tell people that the persecution is wrong, as no law in China criminalizes the practice.
Her simply act landed her in police custody repeatedly. She suffered brutal torture during her detentions. Several inmates once beat her with a wooden plank until it broke. She was forced to sleep on the floor for 34 straight days during one winter. There were several weeks where she developed acute abdominal pain, but received no medical attention.
Ms. Li had trouble walking and was emaciated when she was last released. She returned to health by doing Falun Gong exercises.
She kept talking to people about Falun Gong, only to be arrested for the fourth time. The police have refused to release her on medical parole despite the fact that her blood pressure shot up after her arrest. She remains at Xidayingzi Detention Center.
