A Gifted Poet Arrested Again After Nine Years in Prison The Society September 28, 2013 Falun Dafa, News of Note, Poetry 2 Comments (Minghui.org) Ms. Fu Ying, a Falun Gong practitioner and gifted poet from Liaoning Province, was recently illegally arrested by police in Shenyang City. This arrest comes just two years after her nine-year incarceration in the Liaoning Women’s Prison. Ms. Fu Ying’s crime? Her steadfast faith in Falun Gong. Ms. Fu Ying’s entire family has been relentlessly persecuted for over 14 years for their peaceful belief. Arrested Again Two Years after Release from Prison A group of police officers ransacked Ms. Fu Ying’s apartment in Huanggu District and arrested her around 1 p.m. on August 30, 2013. They also confiscated her and her niece’s computers, as well as other personal belongings. Officers from the Shenyang and Huanggu Domestic Security Divisions and Liaohe Police Station were involved in the arrest. At 11:30 p.m. the same night, officer Yin from the Liaohe Police Station called Ms. Fu Ying’s family to inform them of her “criminal detention.” The next morning, police transferred Ms. Fu to the No. 1 Detention Center in Shenyang. Relentlessly Persecuted Ms. Fu Ying, 45, is a remarkably gifted poet. Her previous employers include the Xiaoqing Media Corporation of Beijing, Beijing Television Station, Anshan City Propane Company, and “Cross-Century Talented People” magazine. She has also co-authored a collection of poems with other writers. Ms. Fu Ying began practicing Falun Dafa in 1998, and benefited both physically and mentally from the practice. Since the Chinese communist regime launched a brutal persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, however, she has been subjected to great suffering for her peaceful faith. Shortly after the persecution began, Ms. Fu Ying was detained by the Lishan Police Branch in Anshan City for 15 days for appealing to the government for the right to practice Falun Gong. During her detention, the Anshan City Propane Company terminated her employment. In 2000, she was arrested in Tiananmen Square, detained by the Tiedong District Police Branch of Anshan City for 15 days, and fined 5,000 yuan. In July 2001, police from the Chaoyang Police Branch of Beijing abducted then 34-year-old Ms. Fu Ying from her residence near the Beijing Olympic Village. Ms. Fu Ying was sentenced to nine years in prison by Beijing Intermediate Court. In April 2003, she was sent to Liaoning Women’s Prison. The nine-year imprisonment was so devastating that her hair turned white and her face became disfigured. She was released on July 10, 2010. She had written many poems in prison, but authorities did not allow her to take them home. After her release, Ms. Fu Ying looked after her elderly mother and young niece, as her sister, Ms. Fu Yan (the niece’s mother), was also imprisoned for practicing Falun Gong. In August 2012, the niece went to a vocational college in Shenyang. Ms. Fu Ying accompanied her there and worked part-time to support her. During her stay in Shenyang, she was arrested again… Excerpted from Minghui.org.
