(Minghui.org) A 70-year-old woman serving an eight-year term for practicing Falun Gong is being subjected to daily beatings by the inmates. The prison guards have also knocked out her teeth while forcibly administering unknown drugs she refused to take.
Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.
Ms. Wang Ruiling of Zunhua City, Hebei Province, was taken to the Shijiazhuang Women’s Prison on April 16, 2021. She was held in the 13th ward. According to an insider, she is subjected to daily beatings, including in the morning, noon, and evening. Bloodstains are often seen in her cell. As she refused to take the unknown drugs the guards gave her, they knocked out her teeth and force-fed her the drug.

Twelve practitioners arrested that day were tried by the Zunhua City Court on December 17, 19, and 23, 2019, before being secretly sentenced on November 27, 2020.
