(Minghui.org) Mr. Wang Lejun was diagnosed with atrophy of his cerebellum following nearly a year of persecution at Shenyang Prison. Mr. Wang was persecuted under the directive of ensuring he be “transformed” and relinquish his belief in Falun Gong.

Mr. Wang, in his 60s, is from Fushun City, Liaoning Province. He was working at the Dengta Road Construction Project on November 24, 2015, when officers from the Dengta City Domestic Security Division and the Gucheng Police Station picked him up. He was first detained at the Dengta City Domestic Security Division and then transferred to Wujia Detention Center.

Three Falun Gong practitioners—Ms. Niu Peijuan, Ms. Chen Suoyan, and Mr. Wang—were illegally tried in the Dengta City Court on July 15, 2016, and sentenced to prison on August 23, 2016. Mr. Wang was sentenced to four years, while Ms. Niu and Ms. Chen were each sentenced to three years with five years' probation.

Mr. Wang appealed at the Liaoyang City Intermediate Court, but the original judgment wasn't changed.

Mr. Wang was transferred to the No. 19 Division at the Shenyang No. 1 Prison on April 26, 2017.

Mr. Wang's family visited him on September 15, 2017. He was emaciated and his skin had darkened. There was also a scar on the left side of his neck.

After seeing traces of saliva and food stains on Mr. Wang’s clothing, his family asked why he hadn’t washed his clothes. They presumed that he didn't answer because of the prison guards and the two inmates present, who were assigned to monitor and torture him.

They also asked why he hadn’t purchased clothing with the money that they’d sent him, but he said that he hadn't received it. He said that the captain had it. He pointed to a person in another room that no one had met. Mr. Wang's family suspected that his injuries were serious and that they weren't being informed.

Another practitioner in the prison told them that they didn't have enough to eat. They weren't able to ascertain the degree to which he was being tortured. They only knew that the abuse often escalates when a practitioner hasn't been “transformed.”
