More Facts about the Torture Death of Falun Dafa Practitioner Mr. Song Youchun
Falun Dafa practitioner Song Youchun was fifty-four years old. He lived in Tumenzi Village in the Tumenzi Region in Qinglong County, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. The Qinglong Detention Center detained him several times and tortured him because he refused to stop practicing Falun Dafa. They illegally sentenced him to three years in a forced labor camp. He was detained in the Hehuakeng Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City, Hebei Province. Later he was detained in the Balizhuang Forced Labor Camp in Baoding City, Hebei Province. He was brutally tortured and suffered inhumane persecution. He was released when his health condition deteriorated, and his family brought him home. The Tumenzi Regional Government officials and the local police, however, still went to his home to harass him. On December 2, 2003, the head of the local police station Liu Yanwen, together with other officers, entered Song's house. Without giving any reasons, they handcuffed Song and two of his family members and took them to the Qinglong County Detention Center. Song went on a hunger strike. The guards inhumanely force-fed him. The prisoner head of his cell and the guards in the detention center often beat him up. During the fourteen days at the detention center, he suffered various kinds of brutal tortures and persecution. Around 5 o'clock in the afternoon on December 15, 2003, he was tortured to death.
The detention center didn't inform Song's family of his death until 8 a.m. the next day. When his family saw his body, they found Song's face and head misshapen and bruised. The blanket that Song used and the wall of his cell were both covered with blood. Song's eyes were still open.
His family immediately questioned the detention center:
- Why didn't the detention center send Song to a hospital for treatment?
- Why didn't the center inform Song's family when his condition was so serious?
- Why didn't the center inform Song's family immediately after he died? Why did they wait fourteen hours before they let the family know about Song's death?
Song's family demanded that the detention center give a clear explanation for Song's death. They were very firm in their request since it was legally justified. Everyone connected to the incident, however, tried to hide the facts to avoid taking responsibility. The following departments/units should be held responsible for Song's death: Tumenzi County Government, Tumenzi Police Station, Qinglong County Detention Center, Qinglong County Public Security Department, and the National Protection Troop.
It was said that the Chairman of the Qinglong County Public Prosecution Department wanted to go after those who were responsible for Song's death, but the County Government and the Secretary of the County Discipline Committee prevented this from happening. They removed Song's organs and dismissed his family without granting their request for an autopsy. They also refused to compensate Song's family for any expenses incurred because of Song's death. Even after twenty days, Song's family still had not heard anything from the detention center.
