(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Li Wenjuan was arrested in 2009 by 610 Office officials in Putuo district. Later, she was sentenced to a four and a half year prison term, and subsequently detained in the Songjiang Women's Prison in Shanghai. From February to June 2011, Ms. Li was subjected to severe persecution in the “intensive unit,” resulting in her extremely weak physical condition. She recently fell and fractured her thigh bone. Currently, Ms. Li is being detained in the Nanhui Prison Hospital in Shanghai. Prison officials have refused to allow family visitation.
From February to June 2011, Songjiang Women's Prison officials prevented family visitation, citing several excuses. On the afternoon of June 17, Ms. Li's family was finally allowed to visit her in the Nanhui Prison Hospital. Her family was shocked to see her on the bed, paralyzed. She was emaciated, with dry, gray hair and was extremely weak. After some inquires, her family realized that she was tortured for nearly four months in the intensive unit. Later, Ji Da and Feng Ke from the Songjiang Prison's first district mentioned that Ms. Li fell while taking a shower on the morning of June 16, causing injuries to her forehead and a thigh bone fracture. Following her injuries, she was taken to the prison hospital for diagnosis, where they determined that she'd fractured her thigh bone. Hospital officials explained that the prison hospital was not able to perform the required surgery, and that it was possible for her to suffer paralysis in her lower body at any time. Currently, her family is quite upset and worried. They strongly urged prison officials to release her for medical treatment. However, the prison refused to allow family visitation.
Li Wenjuan was formerly vice president of the 101 Factory Union. From a young age, she suffered from serious lower back pain and rheumatism. One day in 1997, she happened to come across the Falun Dafa book Zhuan Falun. After reading the book, she realized that this spiritual discipline was exactly what she'd been looking for. She began following the guiding principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance and practicing the Falun Dafa exercises and all of her diseases disappeared within days.
