March 23, 2004 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zhang Yanxun was a Falun Gong practitioner from Yanzhuang Village, Guan County, Shandong Province. He became very healthy after taking up the practice of Falun Gong. On March 1, 2000, he was illegally detained in the village police station, and on March 4, he was transferred to the county detention center. While in detention, he was brutally tortured. The inmates even forced this 50-year-old man to imitate a frog jumping on the ground. When he failed to jump high enough, they beat him. The police witnessed this, and just turned a deaf ear. In the end, Mr. Zhang was tortured to the point of being unrecognizable. Fearing to take the responsibility should he die in police custody, the police ordered his family to pick him up on April 29. Mr. Zhang passed away on June 1, 2000.

The details of Mr. Zhang's death are being investigated.
