Retired Teacher Ms. Zhang Shuzhen from Beijing Died from Injection of a Toxic Substance
(Clearwisdom.net) According to a February 13, 2004 report from the Falun Dafa Information Center, persons at the Qinghe Forced Labor Camp in Beijing had infused the 51-year-old retired teacher Ms. Zhang Shuzhen with a toxic substance for refusing to give up Falun Gong practice.
The infusion led to violent stomach pains. Her belly swelled larger than that of a pregnant woman. Zhang Shuzhen died on October 9, 2002 as the result of this horrible act.
Zhang Shuzhen was 51 years old and had lived at 39 Shi Fo Si, Haidian District, Beijing. She was a retired teacher from Yuanda Middle School in Haidian District. She started to practice Falun Gong in 1992. In 2001, police arrested her and sent her to the Qinghe Forced Labor Camp for distributing Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials.
The officials in the labor camp deprived her of sleep for several consecutive nights. The police shocked her with electric batons, seized her by the hair and struck her against a wall. Furthermore, depraved people infused unknown liquids into her anus, which caused the violent pain in her stomach, making her belly again swell up bigger than that of a pregnant woman.
According to information, the police used various torture methods in the attempt to force Zhang to reveal the names and addresses of other Falun Gong practitioners. Ms. Zhang was firm and did not say a single word.
Sources said that the police afterwards sentenced Zhang to one year and 6 month forced labor. She suffered a violent stomachache on the way to the Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp. Fearing to shoulder the responsibilities, the labor camp officials ordered her family to take her home. Zhang Shuzhen was sent to the Haidian Hospital on October 9, 2002 at 7:00 p.m. She passed away at 9:00 p.m.
A staff from Yuanda Middle School in Haidian District confirmed the time of Zhang Shuzhen's death.
