Two Senior Practitioners Abused in Jiangxi Women's Prison for Their Faith
(Minghui.org) Ms. Huang Yindi and Ms. Zhong Guifeng, two Falun Gong practitioners, were taken to the Jiangxi Provincial Women's Prison in November 2016. They have been abused and mistreated ever since and are now very emaciated and have difficulty walking.
Ms. Huang Yindi, 62, is currently detained in the No. 2 Ward of the prison. She is also a bit disoriented.
Ms. Huang is not allowed to go to bed until 2:00 a.m. and is being deprived of sleep. She is not allowed to wear warm clothing and is forced to sit on the cold floor for long periods of time on freezing cold days. The prison does not let her buy anything.
Ms. Zhong Guifeng, 70, is unable to lift anything with her hands.
Ms. Zhong has been deprived of all freedom. Guards order criminal inmates to monitor her. She is made to do hard labor without pay from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. every day. She is not allowed to have family visits.
Detained and Sentenced
Ms. Huang, Ms. Zhong, and another practitioner Mr. Gao Jiaqu from Jiujiang City wrote a letter to the police on February 29, 2016, to clarify the facts regarding the persecution and expressed their hope that the police would stop assisting the persecution. For peacefully exercising their right to seek justice, the three were arrested. Police officer Li Jun decided to keep them in detention and arrest warrants were later issued.
They appeared in court on August 3, 2016. Ms. Zhong was sentenced to three years in prison, Ms. Huang was given a four-and-a-half-year prison term, and Mr. Gao was sentenced to four years.
The Jiujiang City Intermediate Court rejected Ms. Huang's and Mr. Gao's appeals and upheld their original sentences. Ms. Zhong and Ms. Huang were taken to the Jiangxi Province Women's Prison in November 2016.
