(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhang Xingye, born on August 19, 1965, was an employee of the Second Mine in the Third Oil Refinery. On December 10, 1999, he spoke words of justice for Falun Dafa. Saertu Police Station personnel then detained him for five months, citing "purposes of administrative detention."
On July 13, 2001, Mr. Zhang was arrested for making Falun Dafa truth-clarifying materials, and the Saertu police sentenced him to three years of forced labor. He was abused and tormented until he almost died and then was released on bail for medical treatment. Later Zhang Xingye went into exile to avoid further persecution. On April 19, 2002, Daqing City Police Department enforcers again detained him "for administrative purposes." During this detention Mr. Zhang suffered much abuse, mistreatment and torment. He was tortured and beaten until he spat blood and had difficultly walking.
On July 5, 2002, the Daqing City People's Prosecutor issued an arrest warrant for Zhang Xingye on no legal grounds. He was then incarcerated in the Daqing City Detention Center and illegally sentenced to ten years' imprisonment. He has been subjected to frequent mental and physical torture in the Daqing City Prison.
