Brutal Torture at the Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center: Open Wounds Smeared with Salt
(Clearwisdom.net) On September 2002, Daqing city Ranqu area Falun Gong practitionerSheng Xiaoyun and her husband Daiyi were abducted from their home bypolice, detained for one month, then sent to the Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center.Before the 16th National Communist Party Congress, guards at the center began attacking Falun Gong practitioners to try to force them to renounce their beliefs. They ordered prisoners to pinch Sheng Xiaoyun's legs to the point of causing open wounds. They then smeared the wounds with salt and covered up the legs with tape.
In October 2003, they tried to force her to sign a statement promising that she was giving up her belief in Falun Gong, but failed. She clarified the truth to the police, and was tortured further.
In late November 2003, the Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center's staff contacted her family, asking them to bring 700 yuan for Mrs. Sheng's physical examination fee. Mrs. Sheng's teenage daughter and Mrs. Sheng's father-in-law, who is in his 60's, went with the help of friends to the center. Once they received the money, they refused to allow the relatives to see Sheng, saying that she was suffering from "depression" and the money was needed for an examination. Sheng's family continued to pay for over two weeks and never got any news. Sheng's condition is still unknown, and her husband Dai Yi is currently being illegally imprisoned in Daqing labor camp.December 21st is the date for family visits at the Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center. We hope practitioners will send the most righteous thoughts to eliminate the illegal persecution, and help practitioner Sheng Xiaoyun escape this torture and return to the Fa-rectification.
