Ms. Pan Xihua Exposes Police from the Mashan District and Didao District Police Sub-bureaus Who Used Tortures to Extort Confessions

My name is Pan Xihua. I was sentenced to five years in prison for practicing Falun Gong. I witnessed the police from the Mashan District and the Didao District Police Sub-bureaus use torture to extort confessions from people.

On the evening of October 27, 2004, the police took me to the Dongxi Police Station in the Didao District. There I saw Mr. Wu Baoku who was covered with bruises from having been beaten. Two people brought him into a meeting room to force him to tell them the names that they wanted. Mr. Wu then was taken back to Mashan the next day. I saw this with my own eyes. The police involved included Director Guo along with others from the Didao District Sub-bureau and the local police station.

On the morning of October 29, I also was taken to Mashan. Ho Li, who took notes, said to me, "Speak quickly and you will go back in few days. Don't make me beat you." He tried to force me to sign my name and to take my fingerprints, but I refused. Later, he took me to another room where I saw Mr. Wu being badly beaten. The beating was so severe that he couldn't even stand up.

As soon as I saw Mr. Wu, someone came in to interrogate me. I told the person how I was being persecuted. Several days later, the arrest warrant came. Although I refused to sign my name, they still sentenced me to five years. It is completely unfair to sentence me for being a good person.

Note: Ms. Pan is currently appealing for her sentence to the Middle Court.
