Supplemental Information Regarding the Death of Practitioner Ms. Xu Yunfeng of Chongqing City, Sichuan Province

February 25, 2004 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Xu Yunfeng, forty-seven years old, was a Dafa practitioner in Chongqing City, Sichuan Province. Ms. Xu was detained for a long time in the Jinkou brainwashing center in Shapingba district of Chongqing City where she died from the persecution on April 29, 2003.

In May of 2002 the police seized Ms. Xu and locked her on the second floor of Dizhi Boarding House in Xianfeng Street, Jingkou in Chongqing city to brainwash her. This brainwashing center was tightly sealed off to the outside world. Tang and Wang of the Political and Judicial committee of Shapingba district "610 Office" [an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] run the brainwashing center along with other personnel, including team leaders Yan Liping and Chen Yanyan, who were originally "instructors" at Maojiashan women's forced labor camp; policemen Peng Yun, Yang Ze, Chen Shixia who were transferred from Xishanping forced labor camp and reformatory center. Wu from Chongqing Second Steel company also transferred to the brainwashing center as "assistant tutor."

Immediately after Xu Yunfeng was in the brainwashing center, they attempted to force her to write the three statements [Practitioners are coerced under brainwashing and torture to write these as proof that they have given up their belief. Created by the "610 Office," the three statements consist of a letter of repentance, a guarantee to never again practice Falun Gong, and a list of names and addresses of all family members, friends and acquaintances who are practitioners.] sign guarantees, and watch videos which slandered Dafa and Teacher. When Ms. Xu refused to write the three statements, policeman Peng Jun said to her, "Even though you refused to write, we have our means to break you, if you do not write, we will send you to forced labor camp. What does it matter if we beat a Falun Gong practitioner to death? The death of Falun Gong practitioners is nothing. At present time only Jiang Zemin's orders count. Even though Falun Gong is good, there is nothing we can do. Jiang Zemin has said if beaten Falun Gong practitioner to death, we will use the story as propaganda and broadcast on CCTV. We would say that the death was because of cultivation insanity from practicing Falun Gong and that you committed suicide. Who will listen to you?..."

The police would not let her sleep. Every night they and the instructors took turns to interrogate her until 2-3 am. They did not give her any food or drink, or let her take a bath in the hot summer month of June. Ms. Xu protested the persecution with a hunger strike. The police took Xu to Shuangbei hospital in Shapingba to conduct barbaric force-feeding (total 8 persons participated in the force-feeding Xu Yunfeng: 3 police, 3 "610" officers," 2 assistant tutors. Later they locked her up in a small cell to torture her and forced-fed her numerous times until she died.
