(Minghui.org) A 57-year-old woman in Fanchang County was arrested on May 28, 2018 for refusing to renounce Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.

Ms. Xu Fengliu credits Falun Gong for returning her to health. She used to have a big tumor in her abdomen and nothing seemed to help. The tumor, however, disappeared without medical intervention not long after she began practicing Falun Gong in November 1997.

The former herbalist at Fanchang County Pharmaceutical Company never wavered in her faith when the persecution of Falun Gong began in July 1999. Her simple pursuit of health landed her in police custody multiple times, and she was given two years of forced labor in 2007. She was brutally tortured during her labor camp detention and was emaciated when she was released on September 23, 2009.

Ms. Xu's parents, both in their 80s, had relied on her for care in recent years, but with her latest arrest they are left to fend for themselves. Her friends are calling for her immediate release.
