Practitioner Mr. Xing Yanliang, who is detained at the 7th Prison Zone in Tailian Prison, was locked in a solitary confinement cell because he wrote a song on December 3rd. He was only given two corn soup meals at 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day. Each meal contained only one scoop of corn soup, which had sand and corn stalk mixed in it. The confinement cell has no faucet, and water is drawn directly from the toilet. At present, Mr. Xing is locked to a ring on the ground with torture instruments on his hands and legs, which are not loosened even when he sleeps at night. This makes it extremely difficult for him to fall asleep. Every day he is forced to face his cell wall, and he cannot sit straight.

Ms. Xing was previously on the staff at Qiqihar Railroad Art Troupe. He was sentenced two years in a forced labour camp in October 1999, and he was sent to the Fuyu Forced Labour Camp in Qiqihar. In March 2002, he was again sentenced to three years in forced labour camp.

On March 28th, 2006, police from Tiefong Police Station in Qiqihar suddenly broke into Falun Gong practitioners' homes and made arrests. They also do long-term monitoring of practitioners' homes. Over 20 practitioners, including Xing Yanliang, were arrested and tortured. Their homes were ransacked, and one of the practitioners, Zhang Guiqin, died as a result of persecution on December 4th, 2006.
