15. ［Shangdong Province］The Relevant Departments and Staff Who Participated in Persecuting Practitioner Ms. Zhao Yuhong
Practitioner Ms. Zhao Yuhong from Zhaoyuan City in Shandong Province was "illegally sentenced" to four years of imprisonment. Recently, when she had served the full term and should have been released, police again arrested her and took her to the Zhaoyuan Brainwashing Center, where she continues to be tortured.
Ms. Zhao Yuhong has been inhumanely persecuted because she steadfastly practices Falun Dafa. In the past several years, almost all of her time has been spent in the forced labor camp, brainwashing center, or prison. Due to the persecution, she has lost feeling in both of her hands, and she has also lost the ability to take care of herself. In 2002 she was sentenced to four years of imprisonment and was held in the Women's Prison in Shandong Province in Jinan City. Recently, when she had served her full term and was up for release, her 80-year-old mother went to the prison to pick her up. However, her mother did not expect that a group of police officers from Zhaoyuan City would already be waiting there. They deceived Ms. Zhao Yuhong's mother by taking her to the side, while they arrested Ms. Zhao Yuhong and took her to the Zhaoyuan City Brainwashing Center where she continues to be held.
