(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Peng Shiqiong is a Falun Gong practitioner from Guang'an City in Sichuan Province. She was arrested during the recent mass arrests carried out in late June 2008. A few days after the arrest, she was secretly sentenced to two years of forced labor. This is the fourth time that Ms. Peng Shiqiong has been illegally sentenced to forced labor.

Ms. Peng Shiqiong was a former employee of the Huaying City Meat Products Factory in Guang'an. Before she started practicing Falun Gong, she suffered from many illnesses. Her medical bills cost thousands of yuan every year. After she started cultivating, she followed the the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She improved her xinxing and not only did she recover her health, she no longer needed to spend money on medical expenses. After the persecution started in China on July 20, 1999, she persevered in cultivation. She went to Beijing to appeal and clarify the truth to people. As a result, she was sent to Nanmusi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Sichuan Province. She was sent there for forced labor twice and the duration of her imprisonment totaled four years. Peng Shiqiong was again taken away from her temporary living place by the police on September 27, 2005, at 2:00 a.m., and secretly sentenced to two more years of forced labor. Earlier, she had left home to avoid the persecution and lived temporarily in Chongqing City.

During the six years of forced labor, Peng Shiqiong suffered much at the hands of the guards and the criminals, who were spurred on by the police. They used torture devices on her. She was frequently physically assaulted by the criminals and drug addicts. She was also handcuffed and hung up at a height where only her toes touched the floor, as well as being locked in small solitary cells. On October 7, 2007, after her third imprisonment term was completed, authorities from the Huaying Police Department sent her home. The local personnel declared that they would arrange for someone to follow her and monitor her. A few days later, they set up a plot to arrest her. At that time, Peng Shiqiong was looking after her aged mother, who was seriously ill. The repeated harassment greatly disturbed the care of Ms. Peng's ill mother. She passed away early the next morning.

During the Olympics period, following CCP orders, the government officials of Guang'an City harassed and arrested practitioners in all districts. Within three months, there were dozens of practitioners arrested. The oldest amongst them was eighty years old. Some practitioners weren't given a trial before they were sentenced to forced labor camps.
