(Minghui.org) After serving ten years behind bars for upholding his faith in Falun Gong, a 68-year-old construction cost engineer was arrested again on June 18, 2020.

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

Mr. Sui Yongyan, a Dandong City, Liaoning Province resident, was arrested after being reported for mailing letters to the general public with information about Falun Gong. The police quarantined him for 14 days before sending him to Tangchi Detention Center. 

Prior to his latest arrest, Mr. Sui was arrested three times, in March 2000, April 2004 and around March 2009, respectively. His home was ransacked each time. He was given three years at Benxi Forced Labor Camp, three years in Panjin Prison and four years in Benxi Prison, respectively, after each arrest. 

Mr. Sui was subjected to physical torture and mental coercion designed to force him to renounce his faith while in custody.
