(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Li Decheng is from Ganzhou, Liaoning Province. He was sentenced to six years in prison. At present, he is still unconscious as a result of the torture he suffered in Nanguanling Prison in Dalian City. His son, also a practitioner, was recently illegally arrested and detained as well.
Mr. Li is 66 years old. He had been arrested twice and imprisoned for nine years. On February 14, 2012, he was sentenced to a six-year prison term for the third time by the Gaizhou Court.
The guards in Nanguanling Prison embarked on the “transformation” of practitioners on November 8, 2012. They handcuffed practitioners to heating pipes and deprived them of sleep around the clock. Mr. Li was tortured until he was close to death. Currently, he is at the Dalian Shahekou Hospital for emergency treatment. He has been unconscious for 10 days.
