(Minghui.org) Ms. Guo Shufen’s family was recently notified by the Liaoning Province Women’s Prison that their loved one had been admitted to the 12th ward, the correction ward, to serve time for her faith in Falun Gong.

Since the Chinese communist regime ordered the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, the Liaoning Province Women’s Prison has been actively torturing incarcerated practitioners, especially those held in the 12th ward.

Ms. Guo’s family requested to visit her. But a guard replied that she wasn’t qualified for family visits. An insider revealed to the family that Ms. Guo is suffering from some medical condition, including dangerously high blood pressure. The family is calling on the International community to pay attention to her case.

Ms. Guo, a 67-year-old Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province resident, saw a Falun Gong poster on a utility pole on December 9, 2021. When she stopped to read it, a woman accused her of putting up the poster. She refused to let her go and called the police, who soon arrived and took Ms. Guo to the Beijiao Police Station.

An hour later, over ten plainclothes officers descended on Ms. Guo’s home. They kicked the door open and broke in. Her daughter and granddaughter, who live with her, were terrified. The police confiscated Ms. Guo’s Falun Gong books, incense, several DVDs, and 12,000 yuan in cash. They also took away three printers and three computers that her son-in-law used for his private business. Even her granddaughter’s DVD player wasn’t spared.

When the police took Ms. Guo to the Jinzhou City Women’s Detention Center after a day at the police station, they stripped her down to her underwear.

The police submitted Ms. Guo’s case to the Linghai City Procuratorate on December 14, 2021. The prosecutor indicted her on December 21, with the charge of “undermining law enforcement with a cult organization,” the standard pretext used by the authorities to criminalize Falun Gong practitioners.

Ms. Guo stood trial on July 6, 2022, and was sentenced to two years and three months. She appealed with the Jinzhou City Intermediate Court, but the judge ruled to uphold her original verdict without having a hearing.
