URGENT: Christian dissident Zhu Yufu's health continues to deteriorate; prison responds with more persecutionMonday, May 13, 2013
China Aid Association
(Hangzhou, Zhejiang–May 13, 2013) Imprisoned dissident and Christian Zhu Yufu told his family at their monthly visit that he's had fainting spells due to his deteriorating health, but a prison official said Zhu was faking and has downgraded his meal plan and forbidden him to make calls to his family.
Zhu told his family members on Sunday that he has fainted three times this month due to angina, tightness in his chest, nausea, and high blood pressure. But a prison captain surnamed Wang told his family that had only pretended to faint, and therefore, he would no longer be getting extra-nutrition lunches and would not be allowed to make his monthly phone call to his family.
ChinaAid condemns the prison for its illegal acts in depriving Zhu of his legitimate rights and urges the prison to provide him humanitarian medical treatment and release him as soon as possible on medical parole.
