(Minghui.org) A 79-year-old resident in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province was arrested in late May 2021 for practicing Falun Gong. Ms. Wang Jingcui is currently held at the Daqing City No.2 Detention Center and denied family visitation.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Prior to her latest arrest, Ms. Wang, a former employee of the Daqing Oil Production Plant, has been arrested six times. She was sentenced to prison twice and given a labor camp term.

Ms. Wang was first arrested on June 13, 2000 when she went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. She was held at two detention facilities for a total of 55 days.

She was arrested again on September 30, 2000 and detained for 15 days.

Shortly after she was released, Ms. Wang returned to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, only to be arrested on November 28, 2000. She was detained for 45 days at two detention centers and then transferred to the Heilongjiang Drug Rehab Center to serve a labor camp term on January 8, 2001. She was released on June 22 that year.

For distributing informational materials about Falun Gong, she was arrested on October 11, 2001 and detained for 45 days.

Ms. Wang was arrested for the fifth time on May 30, 2002 and later sentenced to five years by the Honggang District Court. She was tortured and held in solitary confinement at the Heilongjiang Province Women’s Prison.

While she was released ahead of time, she was arrested for the sixth time on June 9, 2006 after being reported for talking to people about Falun Gong. The guards at Daqing City No.1 Detention Center beat her and knocked out two of her front teeth. They also handcuffed her and force-fed her. She was later given another four-year term by the Honggang District Court at the Heilongjiang Province Women’s Prison.
