Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Ren Xichang from Changchun City, Jilin Province was taken to the Chaoyanggou Labour Camp against his will three times. He recently suffered a mental breakdown resulting from the torture and abuse he endured.
Because Mr. Ren Xichang steadfastly held on to his belief in Dafa and rejected all attempts at reformation1, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) arrested and detained him numerous times. Each time his term was unjustly extended. After his arrests, his family was left without a source of income and their lives fell into a hopeless situation. The authorities did not even allow his family to receive the welfare benefits that all low income families receive. Mr. Ren's disabled wife cries continuously; she has visited all the relevant departments many times and tearfully asked for Mr. Ren's release, but no one pays any attention to her. She went to the Chaoyanggou Labour Camp to visit Mr. Ren, but the labour camp denied her entry, so she was not aware of the persecution Mr. Ren has suffered there.
Several days ago, the police suddenly broke into the family's home once again, demanding that they pay a large amount of money to treat Mr. Ren's illness. Only then did the family know that Mr. Ren had been mistreated in the labour camp; and, that it was so severe he reached the point of mental breakdown. His life is now in danger. The authorities did not release him, but took him to Siping City Mental Hospital where the persecution continues. His family was even asked to pay for the "treatment". The police were extremely rude and disrespectful. Because the family members truly did not have any money, the police tried to further intimidate them saying that if the family didn't pay, they would be held responsible for all the consequences .
All kind and just people and organisations, please pay attention to this matter and rescue Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Ren Xichang.
