I was arrested and sent to Changsha No. 3 Jail for being a Falun Gong practitioner. In the middle of December 2001, I was transferred to Chishan Jail in Yuanjaing (Hunan Province No. 1 Jail). My physical body had been healthy before this.
On September 4, 2002, guard Yang Yong at Chishan Jail did not allow Dafa disciples Xiao Huisheng and I to study the Fa. Guard He Yong wanted to set Master's articles on fire. I warned He Yong not to burn the articles, as retribution would surely follow for such an act. He Yong said that I was cursing him so he starting beating me. I said my intention was good, and it was for his good that I asked him not to burn the articles, and I was not wrong. He Yong continued fiercely beating me. He slapped my left and right cheeks with both hands several dozen times, and he punched my chest with his fists. He kicked my shins with his leather boots, and kicked my body with full force. My face was swollen, my chest, back, and legs were injured, and my nerves were hurt. Many people saw the beating, including inmate Chen Gong of Ward 5 (now transferred to Ward 7), Yang Yuanyou (now transferred to Ward 7), Zhao Aiping (now transferred to Ward 7), Zhao Zhishuang, Li Jun, Xiao Huisheng, Zhao Moxiang, and Daitu (nickname). Those who knew of this incident include Chen Zhaohui, Chen Hui, Tang Guoping, political head Duan Po, and several other people.
In mid-March 2003, I was hospitalized in the jail due to the tortures. My body was swollen, painful and numb. I could not move my left hand, and both of my legs could not be straightened. My condition has not improved as of today. During the hospitalization, I lay in bed for days. I could not move or change body position, eat, drink, or use the toilet by myself. From August 2003 to April 29, 2004, the day I was released, I had been illegally detained in the jail's hospital within the disabled and senior group, accompanied by inmates.
Since my release from jail, I am unable to walk smoothly. I am classified as having third degree limb disability by the City Disability Association. I am unable to find a job and get only 100 yuan each month, on which it is difficult to survive. My condition was caused by Chishan Jail's persecution, and I asked Chishan Jail to compensate me 150,000 yuan for the damage to my body. However, Chishan Jail refused to acknowledge this undeniable fact. On October 24, 2004, I requested Hunan Province Jail Administration Bureau to look into the case, but with no results so far.
