2. [Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Female Dafa Practitioner Yang Shuhui Is Tortured By Forced Labor Camp Police and Suffers Mental Collapse
Yang Shuhui, female, 43, was illegally arrested and brought to the Jiamusi City detention center on May 14, 2002. Later in October, trying to brainwash her, police cuffed both of her hands to one side of a bed while cuffing her feet to the other with her back suspended in the air. She suffered severely from this type of torture. Police officers Liu Yadong and others also applied a great deal of mental pressure in addition to physical torture, which led to her suffering a mental collapse. Later she was moved upstairs, where police officer Hong Wei handcuffed her in the same way twice more. The police often beat her at will, which worsened her condition.
Yang Shuhui's mind is not clear right now. A doctor gave her tranquilizers daily at first, and then gave them to her more and more. Once she was injected with tranquilizers twice within half an hour. The doctors also gave her sedative under various pretenses. Now she is injected with tranquilizers and other drugs more and more frequently, and her situation is deteriorating steadily.
The Jiamusi City detention center is using vicious torture to forcibly brainwash Falun Gong practitioners. More details will be provided as they become available. The phone number of the women's cell in the Jiamusi City detention center is 86-454-8891926
