(Minghui.org) A Yuxi City, Yunnan Province resident has been forced to wear a straitjacket for more than one year and counting.
Ms. Luo Baixiu, born in 1968, was arrested for upholding her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline also known as Falun Dafa that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999. The exact time of her arrest remains to be investigated.
According to a Falun Gong practitioner who was recently released from Kunming City Detention Center, Ms. Luo shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good!” in protest of her unlawful detention. The guards then forced her to wear a straitjacket.
Ms. Luo credits Falun Gong for curing her frozen shoulder and enabling her to take care of herself again. Once a headstrong woman, she also became more considerate. After the persecution began, however, she was repeatedly targeted for her faith.
Prior to her latest arrest, Ms. Luo was sentenced twice, in 2007 and 2016, for a total of six and a half years, respectively. She was beaten, force-fed, held in solitary confinement, and given food laced with unknown drugs while serving time at Yunnan Province No.2 Women’s Prison.
