(Minghui.org) Mr. Zheng Jingxian has been illegally sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison for disclosing the persecution of Falun Gong on a blogging website. He issued a statement on March 21, 2017, that he would go on a hunger strike to protest the unjust persecution.

Mr. Zheng, a 32-year-old software engineer who graduated from South China University of Technology, was arrested and taken to the Nanzhou Detention Center in February 2015.

He has been tortured, threatened and not allowed to purchase any personal items while detained. He is not allowed to write letters to anyone outside the detention center. Letters from his father were opened and read by the guards.

The detention center officials have tried their utmost to have Mr. Zheng renounce his belief and threatened that the guards would “deal with him” if he refused.
