(Minghui.org) A Huidong County resident remains detained following his arrest more than seven months ago.

This is not the first time that Mr. He Jingru has been targeted for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.

Mr. He was first arrested in January 2000 and given five years of forced labor. Not long after his release, he was arrested again and sentenced to five years in Sihui Prison, where he was tortured to the point that his legs were severely injured and he had trouble walking. Authorities arrested him again shortly after his release from prison and gave him another five-year imprisonment. While serving time at Beijiang Prison, he developed muscular atrophy in both arms as a result of torture.

Mr. He has been on a hunger strike at Huidong County Detention Center since his latest arrest in May 2017.
