Exile I was drugged and tortured because of my beliefs.

The persecution of the spiritual practice of Falun Gong in China has been condemned by Amnesty International.

Hundreds of Falun Gong have come to the UK, including Annie Yang who sought asylum after 17 months in a Chinese labour camp.

In 2013, she told the Sunday Mail: "I haven't seen my family since I left China in 2006 as I can't go back. If I went, I would be arrested immediately. I was tortured in the camp. The guards gave me drugs to destroy my central nerves and force me to renounce my beliefs.

"Because of the drugs, my memory has become very bad and my eyesight has deteriorated." The Chinese government denied the claims, calling Falun Gong "a cult who seriously harm society and violate human rights".
