Zou Guoyan

Over the last few years, Mr. Zou has been brutally tortured, both mentally and physically. Some of the torture methods used against him include having his arms and legs clamped to wooden sticks and being shackled to a metal chair for 14 days. During interrogations at night, they handcuffed him in the "carrying a sword over the back" position (the practitioner's hands are pulled behind his back with one hand over the shoulder and the other hand against the lower back. The police then apply a great deal of force to pull the two hands toward one another and handcuff them together). They made him carry a metal tub around his neck and put alcohol and burning cigarettes in the tub. Then they beat him with wood batons for half the night. They put two wooden toothbrushes in between his fingers and then twisted and turned the toothbrushes to cause his fingers excruciating pain. They whipped the soles of his feet with leather belts, stabbed his soles with needles, and tied a rope around his genitals and pulled with great force. The officers also beat him continuously for 40 days. He was only given two portions of corn bread a day, or only two bowls of corn porridge. They shackled him to the ground for over 10 days and deprived him of sleep. He wasn't allowed to use the restroom, making him urinate in his pants many times. They beat and cursed at him countless times. There were also other forms of torture. Mr. Zou's body was greatly damaged and he was sent to the hospital for 7 months. Because information is tightly concealed, we have limited information about Zou Guoyan's current situation.
