Practitioner Mr. Ding Wen of Shiyan City, Hubei Province, Tortured to Death in Zhangwan District's Brainwashing Class

February 07, 2002 |  


Ding Wen, a male Falun Gong practitioner about 30-years-old, lived in Shiyan City, Hubei province. He had been lawlessly detained in a brainwashing class in Zhangwan district, Shiyan City, Hubei province. He was tortured to death on January 14, 2002, and his body was surreptitiously cremated on January 16, 2002. His wife, Chen Rongmei is now being held in a brainwashing class at the local Second Automobile Plant. The police, in an effort to keep the news from being made public, have threatened witnesses not to reveal the truth.

Ding Wen had been severely beaten repeatedly heavily during his detention. He had also been forced to do numerous sit-ups, running, standing-guard [standing at attention] in the cold weather of last winter. These caused excruciating stomach cramps that led to vomiting during the daily tortures. On February 19, 2001, the detained practitioners went on a hunger strike. Huang Chengjun and Fu Baoan, were in charge of beating the practitioners. Yan Jundong and Xia Baozhong and Min Tianxiang, those in command of the brainwashing class from Zhangwan district police station, gave the order to take the male practitioners to the second floor and beat them severely in the restroom. Yan Jundong and Xia Baozhong and Min Tianxiang hit and kicked the practitioners in their abdomens. Ding Wen began bleeding internally from the beating. Mr. Li Guoyun, a sixty something practitioner, was beaten till blood appeared in his urine. Another practitioner received several fractures to his ribs. The practitioners were not allowed to sleep, their hands were cuffed from behind to the water pipe in the restroom for two days.

In late March 2001, while enduring yet another beating Ding Wen was pushed closer and closer to a window and forced to jump out of it. The lower part of his back was severely injured but he was then sent back to his work unit. At the end of August while still convalescing in his hometown, the police from Hongwei sub-district forced Ding Wen back to the brainwashing class. In September, one of his roommates ran away, brainwashing class personnel tortured Ding Wen mercilessly in a single cell to force him to confess what he knew. They forced him join his hands behind his back; one going over his shoulder down and the other from the bottom upwards. They beat him relentlessly. They forced him to drink alcohol until intoxicated [Note: Falun Dafa practitioners abstain from alcohol, tobacco and other vices] and then force-fed him vinegar. The torture continued for 5 days. Then he was sent to jail at a police station. After a month at the police station, he was transferred back to the brainwashing class. He was tortured to death on January 14, 2002. The news of his death was not made public. Even his wife, Chen Rongmei, did not know he had died. His wife remains in a brainwashing class at the local Second Automobile Plant.

We bring this to the attention of the police: If you do not care much about lives of others, then your own life is already devalued. The heavenly law controls everything and no one who breaks it can escape. Remember the old saying: If retribution to good or bad deeds were not equally accorded, the heavenly law would be unfair. The law of the universe is fair to everyone. If you persecute practitioners, you commit a serious crime and there is no way to get pardoned. Reverse it and stop persecuting Falun Gong practitioners now and live your lives as good people from now on.
