Authorities Refuse to Release Falun Gong Practitioner With Failing Health Attributed to Torture Suffered in Prison
(Minghui.org) Since last June, Mr. Liu Fubin has been vomiting every time he eats. He often has headaches and difficulty breathing. A hospital checkup indicated that he has serious problems with his internal organs and that he is also suffering from severe anemia due to malnutrition.
Mr. Liu Fubin, a Falun Gong practitioner from Heilongjiang Province, has been serving a 10-year sentence at Tailai Prison since February 2010 and was subjected to constant torture as a result of refusing to renounce his faith.
When Mr. Liu's family visited him at the prison hospital on January 24, 2018, he was emaciated and barely able to raise his head. He was unable to keep down the food he ate and vomited immediately afterward. He also could not take intravenous injections due to high fever complications.
Despite his failing health and life-threatening condition, the prison still refused to release him on medical parole. The department head of the prison, Xiong Dehui, repeatedly said to his daughter that they would let him die in the prison, rather than releasing him.
