Two Cousins Arrested for Their Faith – One Sent to Brainwashing Center, One Released and Harassed
(Minghui.org) Two Fuzhou City, Fujian Province residents in their 50s were arrested on November 21, 2019 after being reported for talking to people about Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Ms. Huang Bixian was sent to a brainwashing center in Minqing City, about 40 miles away, without her family’s knowledge on December 6, 2019, after spending 15 days at Fuzhou Detention Center.
The brainwashing center is in a vacant senior center located on a remote hill. Two people are monitoring Ms. Huang around the clock. They threatened her that she would be sentenced to three years in prison if she doesn’t renounce Falun Gong.
Ms. Huang is on a hunger strike to protest the persecution.
Although her cousin, Ms. Weng Meichai, was released after five days of detention, the authorities kept harassing her and attempting to force her to sign a statement to renounce Falun Gong. When she refused to comply, they threatened to also send her to the Minqing Brainwashing Center.
