(Minghui.org) A 52-year-old man had multiple episodes of heart failure and dangerously high blood pressure, and he was hospitalized several times during his seven years' imprisonment for not renouncing Falun Gong.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Mr. Miao Fu remains emaciated and weak and often suffers hallucinations since his release on February 2, 2019.

Mr. Miao, a resident of Mudanjiang City, Heilongjiang Province, was arrested on February 2, 2012, while accompanying the families of seven detained Falun Gong practitioners to the local police station to seek their release.

He was interrogated and tortured in police custody. His arms and face were covered with scars and bruises. The torture also induced mental disorder in him such that he appeared to be confused and fell asleep during his court hearing on June 27, 2012.

Less than two months later, Mr. Miao was sentenced to seven years in Mudanjiang Prison.

Mr. Miao continued to be tortured by prison guards for not renouncing Falun Gong. They beat him, slapped him in the face, shocked him with electric batons and didn't allow him to sleep.

One night the guards dragged him to a bathroom and poured cold water on him. They beat him so hard that he lost his front teeth.

Mr. Fu refused to write the thought reports as required. Guard Fu Zhanjun hit his head with an electric baton. His head kept bleeding. They also force-fed him with mustard oil and inserted several needles into his left leg. One needle tip was broken and never removed from his leg.

Shortly before he was released, Mr. Miao was sent to the “strict management ward” twice as the guards intensified their efforts in their attempts to force him to give up Falun Gong.

The guards stuffed his mouth with socks and taped his mouth, in order to prevent him from shouting “Falun Dafa is good.” They also tied him on the tiger bench, sprayed his face with pepper water, and shocked his leg with electric batons, because he was doing the Falun Gong meditation.

Between October and late November 2018, the guards left him in a small room without a bed. He slept on the ground for nearly two months.
