(Minghui.org) Twenty-four years after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, practitioners from 44 countries submitted a new list of perpetrators to their respective governments in advance of Human Rights Day, December 10, 2023, urging them to hold these individuals accountable for the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

The practitioners asked their governments to bar the perpetrators and their family members from entry and to freeze their overseas assets.

Among the perpetrators listed was Yin Yijun, secretary of the Party Leadership Group of Jilin Procuratorate.

From 2020 to 2023, 327 Falun Gong practitioners in Jilin Province were sentenced, including 68 in 2020, 96 in 2021, 40 in 2022, and 123 in 2023. At least seven practitioners, including Mr. Jiang Yong, Ms. Wang Guiqin, Ms. Fu Guihua, Ms. Wang Qingwen, Ms. Yan Jing, Ms. Zhao Xin, and Ms. Sun Fengxian, were persecuted to death.

Ms. Fu Guihua Sentenced to Seven Years and Tortured to Death in Prison

Ms. Fu Guihua and her daughter, Ms. Yu Jianli, were arrested on August 15, 2019. They were sentenced to 7.5 years and 7 years in prison on February 26, 2021, respectively. They were transferred to Jilin Province Women’s Prison on May 27, 2021.

The mother and daughter were first held in quarantine on the first floor for two weeks. During that time, Ms. Fu was still very healthy and she constantly reminded Ms. Yu not to hold a grudge against the perpetrators.

Qian Wei, the head of the 8th ward, transferred Ms. Fu to the third floor, while Ms. Yu remained on the first floor. When Ms. Fu still refused to give up Falun Gong after spending 43 days in cell 310, Qian transferred her to the next room, 311, for more intensified persecution.

According to an insider, inmate Guo Lihua in cell 310 forced Ms. Fu to sit on a six-inch-tall stool with an uneven surface every day for more than 12 hours. She put a piece of paper between Ms. Fu’s legs and verbally abused her if the paper fell. Ms. Fu’s buttocks began to bleed and fester. The back of her pants was covered in stains.

Guo also forbade Ms. Fu from drinking water during the hot summer. Ms. Fu was so thirsty that it was difficult for her to eat. Only then would Guo give her a small sip of water. Some practitioners were so thirsty that they rushed out of the cell in the middle of the night and drank the water used for cleaning.

After Ms. Fu was transferred to room 311, inmate Lyu Xinmiao deprived her of sleep and continued to bar her from drinking water. Ms. Fu was only 55 when she passed away three days later.

Meanwhile, Ms. Yu was also subjected to torture, including sleep deprivation, sitting on the small stool for extended periods of time, and restricted restroom use.

She was taken to the hospital for a checkup on June 19, 2022 and was confirmed to have late-stage breast cancer. She had trouble lifting her right arm and often stayed awake at night due to the intense pain.

Ms. Wang’s family frequented the police station and the court to seek her immediate release, but to no avail. She wasn’t released until October 18, 2022, after serving her full term. After she returned home Ms. Wang’s condition continued to decline. Her right breast festered. She became emaciated and was in and out of coma.

Two Elderly Practitioners Sentenced for Talking to People about Falun Gong

Ms. Liu Yuhua, 70, and Ms. Yu Guilan, 74, of Tonghua City, Jilin Province, were arrested on February 13, 2022, for talking to people about Falun Gong.

The police seized 50,000 yuan in cash from Ms. Yu.
