(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Wang Xuchun and Ms. Zhu Feng are illegally detained in Yushu Detention Center in Jilin Province. Their cases have been filed with the city Procuratorate and court, and the police are attempting to get them sentenced. Ms. Wang and Ms. Zhu went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution and are now in serious condition.
Ms. Wang Xuechun, 63, has physically and mentally benefited from becoming a Falun Gong practitioner. On her way to do errands this past July 21, she stopped to visit the home of a friend, Liu Shihua. Several police officers showed up and arrested her, dragging her along the ground and kicking her as they hauled her away. In the detention center, she was unable to eat for seven days and became very weak. The police then transferred her to Yushu Detention Center.
On September 12, 2012, at about 4 p.m., Ms. Zhu Feng, who had just returned home after spending a few days out of town, was harassed by the Yushu Domestic Security Division. Ms. Zhu did not cooperate with the police, who returned with more officers at 6 p.m. and arrested her and her husband. As a non-practitioner, her husband was later released but Ms. Zhu was taken to the detention center.
Ms. Wang Xuechun and Ms. Zhu Feng have each been on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. Ms. Wang began her hunger strike at the end of November and is now quite debilitated. On December 6 and 7, guards took her to Yushu City Hospital for emergency treatment. Both practitioners have been given IV injections at the hospital and then returned to the detention center. Eye-witnesses said both practitioners looked drained.
Both families have been attempting to gain their release from the Public Security Bureau, the Procuratorate, and the court, but each office has denied responsibility.
