Torture Survivor Given Another Three-Year Prison Term for Her Belief in Falun Gong

August 19, 2015 | By a Minghui correspondent from Tianjin, China

(Minghui.org) Ms. Guo Baohua, who has suffered brutal torture for her belief in Falun Gong, was sentenced to three years in prison by the Chaoyang District Court in Beijing on June 19, 2015. The court did not mail the notification until after the June 23 deadline for appealing the sentence.

Ms. Guo, from the Tanggu District, Tianjin City, had gone to Beijing and posted flyers with information about Falun Gong on December 9, 2014. She was then reported to the Chaoyang Police and arrested. The arrest was approved after the fact, on January 15, 2015.

Brutally Tortured During Previous Detentions

Ms. Guo was detained in a brainwashing center in 2001 and then transferred to the Banqiao Forced Labor Camp where she was held for two-and-a-half years.

Guards in the forced labor camp tortured her because she refused to read articles that slandered Falun Gong.

She was held in a special wooden box that was called a “black coffin” for more than one month. The box is about 50 cm long, 40 cm wide and about 1.89 meters tall. Many practitioners were disabled from this torture.

She was also held in a dark cell for more than one month. Her arms were stretched to the limit and handcuffed to two heating radiators.

The guards shocked her with electric batons in 2003 and she was held in a wooden box for many days.
