Torture Death of Dafa Practitioner Ms. Liu Yuqing in the Wujiabao Forced Labor Camp, Fushun City, Liaoning Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Liu Yuqing, female, born on December 5, 1962, was a resident of 7 Zu, 10 Wei, Guchengzi Street, Wanghua District, Fushun City, Liaoning Province. She worked in the Fushun Special Steel Factory.
On February 15, 2001, three police officers from the Putun Police Station in the Wanghua District kidnapped Dafa practitioner Liu Yuqing from Fushun City, Liaoning Province. At Fushun City Wujiabao Forced Labor Camp where they sent her, she suffered from torture, brutal beatings, interrogations, sleep deprivation and other physical and mental tortures. Her internal organs suffered serious damage. Upon hearing the news, her family went to the labor camp asking for her release. On April 11, 2001 she was taken home. On April 13, 2002, she passed away when she was only 40 years old. Following is her story:
Liu Yuqing went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong on October 23, 1999, and was arrested on the 25th at Tiananmen Square. The police put her into a detention center. Later she was taken back by officers from the Wanghua District Police Department and detained in Fushun City Rehabilitation Center. One and a half months later, she was transferred to her work unit for detention, not allowed to go home and monitored by persons from the plant's security section, without being allowed any personal freedom. This situation continued until February 2000.
On December 31, 2000, Liu Yuqing again went to Tiananmen Square and unfolded a banner reading "Falun Dafa Is Good," telling people around the world that Dafa is good. She was arrested on the site and suffered brutal beatings and the "Tiger Bench" torture*. She went on a hunger strike to protest her arrest and was unconditionally released seven days later.
On February 15, 2001, three officers from the Putun Police Station in Wanghua District forcibly dragged her down from the third floor at her work unit and took Liu Yuqing to the police station against her will. On the second day she was sent to Fushun City Detention Center, and half a month later she was transferred to Fushun City Wujiabao Forced Labor Camp. During this period she suffered from torture, brutal beatings, interrogations, sleep deprivation and other physical and mental tortures. Her internal organs suffered serious damage from the beatings. In just over one month, she became extremely weak. She had a fever, blood in her urine, and looked sick and emaciated. Upon hearing the news, her family went to the labor camp asking for her release. On April 11, 2001, she was taken home.
However, the vicious people still did not give up. After 8:00 p.m. on February 9, 2002, over a dozen people from Wanghua Police Department, the Guchengzi and Yanwu police stations, and from the local residential committee, led by police chief Yu Shoujun, broke into her home by jumping over the wall and took away her personal property. Liu Yuqing suffered another round of persecution. Only 40 years old, she passed away on April 13, 2002. At her death, Liu Yuqing's eyes were open and her mouth half open, with an expression of sadness for the injustice.

* "Tiger Bench" torture: Practitioners are forced to sit on a small iron bench that is approximately 20 cm (6 inches) tall with their knees tied together. With their hands tied behind their backs or sometimes placed on their knees, they are forced to sit straight up and look straight ahead. They are not allowed to turn their heads, close their eyes, talk to anyone or move at all. Several inmates are assigned to watch over the practitioners and force them to remain motionless while sitting on the bench. Usually some hard objects are inserted underneath the practitioners' lower legs or ankles to make it harder for them to tolerate this abuse (see illustration on <http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html>)
