(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Gong Xinan, 66 years old, lived in Liuhe Village, Liuhe Town, Qichun County in Hebei Province. In October 1999, after the persecution started, he went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. He was illegally arrested and held at the Wuzhuang Detention Center in Qichun County for six months. He was released after the authorities extorted 1,500 yuan from him. Late at night on January 25, 2001, police officers Chen Hanjiang and Zhang Sheng arrested him at home and tortured him savagely at the police department. They stripped him naked in the freezing winter. Then they forced him to take a cold shower and turned an electric fan on him. He was later sent to the county detention center and detained for another six months. The brutal persecution and abuse by the Chinese Communist Party mentally and physically traumatized Mr. Gong. He passed away on June 28, 2003.
