How Did Practitioner Wang Xiaodong Lose His Ability to Speak?
(Clearwisdom.net) On March 11, 2006, Wang Xiaodong, a 39-year-old practitioner from Huadian City in Jilin Province, was illegally arrested again by several policeman led by Yu Jinji and Jin Zhexian. They illegally searched his home. Wang Xiaodongs mother went to the Huadian City 610 Office and the local court many times, requesting to see her son. The authorities ignored her requests and threatened her instead. On July 6, she waited 6 hours before finally seeing her son, who was handcuffed in an iron cage. Wang Xiaodongs head was drooped and he didnt respond to his mothers voice, as if he couldnt hear her.
The head of the National Security Brigade of Huadian City Police Department, Yu Jinji and Yang Baolin, of the Huadian City 610 Office are fabricating charges for sentencing Wang Xiaodong. On July 4, the local court judge in charge of Wang Xiaodongs case, Liu Fengtong told Wang Xiaodongs mother that his case will be heard soon and his family should come to the courthouse for the case hearing. After Mr. Wangs family members arrived at the courthouse, Liu Fengtong told them the hearing would not be held that day and he would notify them about the new hearing date. On July 5, Wang Xiaodong's mother again asked at the courthouse about her sons hearing and nobody answered her inquiry.
At around 8:00 a.m. on July 6, 2006, Wang Xiaodongs mother went to the courthouse again. She ran into Judge Liu Fengtong and a female staff person while waiting in the hallway. She asked Judge Liu Fengtong, "When will Wang Xiaodongs case be heard?" Judge Liu Fengtong said, "Ill let you know when its the time." The female staff person said, "Go home. Todays case has nothing to do with you. The judge is in the middle of a case hearing." Mr. Wangs mother asked Judge Liu Fengtong again, "Please let me know when Wang Xiaodongs case will be heard." Liu Fengtong said, "Just wait over there. Ill tell you in a little while."
Mr. Wangs mother waited until 11:10 a.m. before asking the guard to call Judge Liu Fengtongs office. The guard got no answer. He said: "Theyre not done yet (i.e., the case hearing has not ended yet.)" Mr. Wang's mother had to leave.
Around 2:00 p.m., Wang Xiaodong's mother returned to the courthouse and asked the guard to call again. There was still no answer. The guard said, "They havent finished the hearing yet." She had to wait.
Around 3:00 p.m., Mr. Wang's mother saw people from the police department and the 610 Office coming in and out of the courthouse. They all stared at her. She felt that something was wrong.
Shortly afterwards, a staff person from the courthouse came out and said, "You havent seen your son for several months. Well give you a chance to see him." She followed him and saw Judge Liu Fengtong, the Deputy Court Director Zhang Fuhong, Yang Baolin from the 610 Office, a doctor from the detention center with a medical kit on his back, local Procuratorate Wei Junying and a dozen others. Then she saw her son. Wang Xiao Dong was in an iron cage, wearing handcuffs and shackles. His head was hanging low and he did not speak at all.
She immediately said, "What crime did my son commit? Why did you put handcuffs and shackles on him? What crime is it to practice Falun Gong? Falun Gong practitioners dont fight back when punched or insulted. They try to be nice people by following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. Are we afraid there might be too many kind people in the world?" She asked her son, "Why don't you speak? They tortured you. Why don't you say something? You should expose how they arrested and tortured you."
No matter how hard his mother tried, Wang Xiaodong didnt respond at all. His head continued to droop. It was as if he didnt hear his mother.
Several people (possibly from the 610 Office) saw that Wang Xiaodongs mother kept questioning the staff members of the courthouse. They pulled Mr. Wang out of the cage.
He didnt speak a word during the whole time. His head hung low. His hair was long and covered his face. Several people then pushed his mother out of the courthouse. In a short while, Wei Junying from the local Procuratorate came out of the courthouse. He gave Wang Xiaodongs mother a cruel smile, jumped into his car and left.
After a while, Yang Baolin from the 610 Office came out. He worked with Yu Jinji, head of the National Security Brigade of Huadian City Police Department, fabricating charges against Wang Xiaodong. Mr. Wangs mother said to him, "Why are you so cruel? Youre all bad people. To sentence Wang Xiaodong, is to sentence yourselves. How come my son couldnt speak when I talked to him? Look at the horrible deeds youve done." Yang Baolins face turned red and he left in his car.
Wang Xiaodongs mother said to more than 20 onlookers from the courthouse, "Wang Xiaodong used to be sick and spitting blood. After he practiced Falun Gong, he recovered. Is that a crime? Whats wrong with being a good person and following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance? What these people did to my son is shameful." None of the people said anything and went back into the courthouse.
Around 8:00 a.m. on July 7, Wang Xiaodongs mother and her niece (Wang Xiaodongs cousin) went to the courthouse to look for Judge Liu Fengtong. The guard called his office and was told that he was not in. They found Deputy Director Zhang Fuhong of the courthouse.
Wang Xiaodongs cousin said, "Wang Xiaodong is my cousin. He was beaten so much that he didnt even recognize his mother. He practiced Falun Gong and followed the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance and tried to be a good person. Whats wrong with that?" Deputy Director Zhang Fuhong said, "You think its good to practice Falun Gong. We dont allow it. His sentence is not set yet. We can have more discussions." She said, "Why didnt you allow his family members into the courtroom when his case was heard? My aunt didnt tell me. The court didnt notify her. If I were here yesterday, wouldnt you allow me to come in?" Zhang Fuhong said, "They injured Wang Xiaodong. You can go to the Procuratorate to sue them."
After 9:00 a.m., Wang Xiaodongs mother and cousin went to the local Procuratorate. They didnt find anybody there and had to go home.
