(Minghui.org) A 68-year-old woman in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, was arrested in mid-June 2021 and is now being held in the Shenyang City Detention Center.

This is the eighth time that Ms. Liu Huarong, a former librarian, has been arrested for her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

She was previously incarcerated several times in several forced labor camps, brainwashing centers, and prison for a total of 12 years.

Ms. Liu was first arrested in June 2000 for going to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. She was held in the Longshan Forced Labor Camp and then in the Shenyang Brainwashing Center located inside the Zhangshi Forced Labor Camp in 2000.

She was arrested by staff members where she worked in 2001 and again in 2002 and held in brainwashing centers both times.

To avoid being persecuted, Ms. Liu lived away from home for five months but was arrested again in August 2003 and given three years in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. She was handcuffed and locked in a storage room without light or ventilation for several days. Male guards dragged her out of her cell into a corridor and beat her.

Ms. Liu was taken to the Pingluoshanzhuang Brainwashing Center in Fushun City on December 10, 2006.

She was arrested and sentenced to three years in prison by the Shenhe District Court in September 2009. She was incarcerated in Liaoning Woman’s Prison until her term expired on September 16, 2012.

Ms. Liu was arrested again on November 3, 2015, for filing a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime who ordered the persecution. She was held at the Shenyang City Detention Center and later sentenced to three and a half years by the Heping District Court.
