Retired Nurse Tortured in Suzhou City Women's Prison in Anhui Province
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Wang Cuilan from Linquan County, Anhui Province, was illegally sentenced to four years of imprisonment in 2013. She is now is detained in Suzhou City Women's Prison. When her family recently went to the prison to visit her, they noticed she was emaciated and her body was covered with wounds.
Ms. Wang used to weigh over 65kg (143 pounds), but now she looks like she only weighs about 40kg (88 pounds). She also has a wound on her left eye socket and a blue bruise, and she can't walk steadily. When her family asked her how she was injured, she dared not speak, and just told them not to ask anymore. Her family members went to the sixth section of the prison to talk to the warden named Hao, but he firmly insisted that she was injured when she fell. He also forced Ms. Wang to say this, and he insisted that the prison staff treated Ms. Wang very well. Ms. Wang's family members didn't believe his claims, and they are determined to find justice for her.
Ms. Wang is a retired nurse and worked at the Linquan County Hospital. All of her illnesses disappeared after she began practicing Falun Gong. After the Chinese Communist Party began persecuting Falun Gong, she has been arrested seven times and sentenced to forced labor camp twice. Last year she was sentenced to imprisonment.
Ms. Wang was arrested by Cheng Feilong, head of the Zhuanji Town Police Station, and deputy head Huang Donglin. She was distributing Falun Gong materials at a fair in Zhuanji Town, Jieshou City, in August 2013. Ms. Wang was sentenced to four years of imprisonment. After she appealed to the Fuyang City Court, she was sentenced to three years of imprisonment.
After Ms. Wang was sent to the Suzhou City Women's Prison, Yi Dinghua, the head of the 610 Office affiliated with the prison, tortured her several times. Yi also refused to allow her family members to visit her for months. Only when Ms. Wang's husband could not take it anymore and went to the provincial capital to appeal, did the prison finally allow her family to visit Ms. Wang.
