Nearly 100-year-old Man Longs for His Son and Granddaughter to Return
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Tian Fujin is a Falun Gong practitioner in Tongliao City, Neimenggu Province. His 97-year-old father is seriously ill and bed ridden. The elderly man has been longing to see his son and granddaughter, but both of them are in prison. He looked forward with high hopes, but has not been able to see his relatives. As a result, he has suffered tremendously.
Mr. Tian Fujin , 55-years-old, used to be the deputy director of the Tongliao City Leather Product Factory. He has been detained for a total of 5 years for practicing Falun Gong. In 2000, he was illegally sentenced to 3 years of forced labor, which he served in the Tongliao City Forced Labor Camp, the Tumuji Forced Labor Camp, and the Wuyuan Forced Labor Camp one after the other. In the Tumuji Forced Labor Camp, the guards brutally beat him. As a result, his appearance changed beyond all recognition. He was also wounded by electric shocks over his entire body, and his white shirt was covered with bloodstains.
Mr. Tian Fujin was released at the end of 2002. In July 2003, when he visited his youngest daughter Ms. Tian Miao, who was serving a prison term for practicing Falun Gong, the guards detained him and sent him to the Wuyuan Forced Labor Camp for brainwashing.
Since Tian Fujin has been detained and sent to forced labor camps repeatedly, his family members have resisted this persecution by appealing to the Neimenggu Court. The case is still pending.
His family members were persecuted again and again for practicing Falun Gong. His wife, Ms. Liu Xiurong, has been arrested and detained many times, as has his elder daughter, Ms. Tian Fang, who is being held in the Hexi Detention Center in Tongliao City. His second daughter, Ms. Tian Xin, was detained twice, and is living with her parents together with an 8-year-old son. His third daughter, Ms. Tian Miao, was arrested many times, sentenced to prison for 6 years and is detained in the Huhehaote City Women's Prison. While in prison, Ms. Tian Miao has been tortured by many means, including being tied with ropes, shocked with an electric baton, force-fed, and hung up in the air. His youngest son, Mr. Tian Shuangjiang, was detained twice and sentenced to prison for 3 years. Mr. Tian Shuangjiang was tortured severely until he confessed, although he did not do anything wrong. The torture methods used included: being put on the Death Bed, and being handcuffed and stretched on an iron rack.

Tian Fujin's 97-year-old father and mother have been eagerly awaiting the return of their son and granddaughters day after day.
