Vice Copy Editor Ms. Wang Yue of China People's Publication Sustains Severe Spinal Damage from Torture
(Clearwisdom.net) Wang Yue, the vice copy editor from China People's Publication, was beaten in a brainwashing class located in Beijing because she appealed against the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. She was injured in the cervical area of her spine. The situation is serious and dangerous, and has received attention from all areas of society.
Ms. Wang Yue is about 40 to 50 years of age. She graduated from Beijing University with a degree in Philosophy, and was working as the vice copy editor in the China People's Publication. Wang Yue is a member of the China Democratic League. She's a descendant of a Chinese war hero and had received honors from the premier Zhou Enlai and Ye Jianying.
Wang Yue was diagnosed and suffering tremendously with a sickness that neither Chinese nor Western medicine could cure. After practicing Falun Gong in 1994, she became healthy and never needed to take a sick day in 7 years. It was rare to find someone that healthy in her company. At the same time, her family troubles disappeared and she did exceptionally well with her work. She had received over a dozen provincial and national awards. The level of recognition given to her was very high.
Wang Yue always said, "I studied philosophy, but Falun Dafa changed my outlook on life. I firmly believe that Falun Gong teaches the truth of the universe and is very real."
On February 19, 2001, her company hired people to force her to attend a brainwashing class because she refused to give up her practice of Falun Dafa. On March 4 of the same year, she was arrested on false criminal charges. On April 4, she was bailed out and awaits her trial next year.
On the same day that Wang Yue was beaten and her cervical vertebrae were injured, her neck, upper torso, back and legs were also hurt from the torture. She was feeling nauseous and weak. Her wrists, shoulders and back were black and blue from abuse. She requested to be examined and to rest, but her request was denied. They continued to detain and beat her. They denied her the benefit of sleep, punished her physically, searched her body and inflicted other kinds of personal insults. She was tortured physically and emotionally. Wang Yue began suffering from headaches and vomiting. Her vision would blur and she would pass out.
The Beijing Xiehe Hospital, as well as a handful of other hospitals, diagnosed Wang Yue with an intervertebral disk injury due to exterior force. (Beijing Chinese Medical Hospital issued a certificate.) The C6 intervertebral disc of her cervical vertebra was dislocated. The C2 to C3 intervertebral disc were shifted back. C5 and C6 vertebra were protruding. Her spinal cord and dural sac were unduly stressed. The Beijing Xiehe Hospital has reports from CT and MRI images. Her injuries are considered serious and dangerous.
At the same time Wang Yue may have suffered brain damage. Her reaction time has slowed down considerably, she needs to sleep more, her hearing, memory and reasoning ability have weakened. Sometimes she's absent minded, her train of thought is disconnected and she has difficulty writing and communicating. Sometimes she involuntarily trembles. She has difficulty taking care of herself and cannot go to work.
A Beijing practitioner who knew Wang Yue said, "She was very popular in her office. She was very serious towards her job. Wang Yue had worked on many health related books, and received good reviews from readers."
