Falun Dafa Practitioner Mr. Dai Jun from Mishan City, Heilongjiang Province is Tortured and Sentenced to Six Years of Imprisonment
Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Dai Jun is twenty-eight years old, and is from Mishan City, Heilongjiang Province. He was arrested for printing and distributing materials that explained the facts about the persecution of Falun Dafa. In 2002, the Jixi City Intermediate People's Court illegally sentenced him to six years of imprisonment. Currently, he's being held at the Mudanjiang Prison in Heilongjiang Province.
Dai Jun was arrested on April 25, 2002. During the interrogation, the head of the Politics Security Department of the Jixi Public Security Bureau didn't believe what Dai Jun said, so he beat him up. He called up the Criminal Investigation Squad of Jiguan District to come and assist him with the beating. They started a three-day, round-the-clock torture session against Dai Jun. They forced him to sit on the Tiger Bench and force-fed him spicy mustard oil. They put heavy things on his head. They used needles to jab him and lit cigarettes to burn his feet. They pushed him outside to be exposed to freezing cold weather. They handcuffed his hands behind his back for a long time, and beat up him with sticks. They kicked and punched Mr. Dai at will, and shackled his feet too. His legs became numb after all this torture and he had difficulties walking without assistance. At the trial, he had to rely on other people's help to walk. He was sent to a detention center after enduring three days of brutal torture. Four other practitioners who were arrested at the same time also suffered mistreatment. One of them was an Associate Professor.
At the detention center, Mr. Dai often felt dizzy and nauseous. Sometimes his limbs felt numb. He was very weak. His eyesight was also damaged. In fact, it is a common approach of those malicious police to send practitioners to detention centers after they were beaten up. In this way, when the practitioners are released many days later, nobody can easily see that they have been tortured. This is one of the main reasons why detention centers often refuse to release practitioners on time. They are simply trying to cover up their criminal actions of torturing Falun Dafa practitioners.
