The Persecution Experienced by Practitioner Wang Xiaolun from Xiong County, Hebei Province
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 7, 2006, officer Wang Shiyong and three others from the Gaoqiao Police Station in Baigou Town illegally arrested five Falun Gong practitioners in Baigou Town. One of the practitioners is Wang Xiaolun from Xiong County. The following is an account of the persecution suffered by Wang Xiaolun.
On the day Wang Xiaolun and the four other practitioners were arrested and taken to the Gaoqiao Police Station, Police Chief Wang Shiyong slapped Wang Xiaolun for refusing to give his name and address. Wang Xiaolun was handcuffed to a chair that night and denied food.
The next day, the five practitioners were sent to the Gaobeidian Public Safety Bureau. Four of the practitioners were handcuffed together and forced to use the lavatory together. An officer from the Gaoqiao Police Station struck Wang Xiaoluns face with a water bottle. Mr. Wang then went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The practitioners were detained there for half a day before being sent to the Gaobeidian Detention Center.
After about four days of a hunger strike, Wang Xiaolun was taken to a railroad hospital and forced to have an intravenous injection. A doctor from the detention center with the surname Sun used a handcuff to press down on Mr. Wangs ankle and stuck a large needle into his arm. Two weeks into his hunger strike, Sun stomped on Mr. Wangs chest forcefully. Detention Center Director Xu Zhong ordered someone to monitor Mr. Wang and whip him if he still refused to eat. Another director named Liu said that if Wang Xiaolun wouldnt eat, the guards would feed him with human excrement.
On July 6, 2006, Wang Xiaolun and another practitioner named Zhang Shiyi were taken to the Gaobeidian City Hospital to have physical checkups, blood tests and a liver function test. Mr. Wang asked for the purpose of performing all the tests. The director told him that it was to see if the practitioners had infectious diseases. Zhang Shiyis test results showed that he had high blood pressure, and the director then forced him to take drugs.
On July 7, Zhao (first name unknown) from the Gaobeidian National Security unit sent Wang Xiaolun to the Baoding Forced Labor Camp. Mr. Wang was unconscious at that time because his cervical vertebra and lumbar vertebra were broken. The forced labor camp refused to take these practitioners. The practitioners were immediately taken back to the Gaobeidian Public Safety Bureau. The Gaobeidian Public Safety Bureau informed the Xiong County and Baigou Town National Security Brigades. The officers from Baigou and members of Zhang Shiyis family took Mr. Zhang home at about 3:00 p.m. However, police from Xiong County didnt arrive to pick up Wang Xiaolun and didnt tell Mr. Wangs family about the release. At the time, Mr. Wang was suffering severe physical pain and asked for a medical exam. The Gaobeidian Public Safety Bureau told him that someone from Xiong County would pick him up soon and refused him a physical examination. Wang Xiaolun waited until night and no one came. He waited in the Bureau for an afternoon and was sent back to the Gaobeidian Detention Center in the evening.
In the detention center, Mr. Wang asked for a physical exam again and Director Wang Zhenzeng told him, "Eat your meal now. Monday (July 10) we will have an officer from Xiong County bring your family to pick you up."
On July 9, Wang Xiaoluns family learned that he was still in the Gaobeidian Detention Center and went there to ask for him. Director Wang Zhenzeng told the family that he had received an order that even if Wang Xiaolun died, he wouldnt be held responsible. After the family begged repeatedly, the director promised the family that he would send Mr. Wang back to Xiong County. However, Su Shiliang from the Xiong County National Security Brigade had no plans to release Wang Xiaolun.
On the morning of July 10, Zhao from the Gaobeidian National Security Brigade lied to Wang Xiaolun in order to get him into a car and lied to Mr. Wangs family, telling them to wait at the Xiong County Public Safety Bureau. Zhao, Su Shiliang, Cui Qihua, and Li Chengchun took Wang Xiaolun to the Baoding Forced Labor Camp. The guards at the Baoding Forced Labor Camp, in order to make Mr. Wang talk, beat him about the eyes and mouth until he was bleeding. The guards then left Mr. Wang under the burning sun. Wang demanded a physical checkup again because he felt he might have a bone fracture in his neck. At 3:00 p.m., the camp staff took Wang Xiaolun to the 252 Hospital to have a physical exam. The examiners found that he had fractures in his neck and lower back, bleeding in the brain and paralysis in his lower body.
When Su Shiliang and other officials learned about Mr. Wangs injuries, Su Shiliang brought the camp staff a case of bottled water and escaped back to Xiong County. The staff didnt tell Mr. Wangs family about his injuries. The camp staff, on their way from the hospital back to the camp, decided that they wouldnt take Mr. Wang in. They didnt want the responsibility and forced Wang Xiaolun to sign a statement saying that all his injuries and illnesses had nothing to do with the camp.
Wang Xiaolun was later locked in the Baoding Forced Labor Camp for a day. On the afternoon of July 11, the director of the camp ordered the staff to send Mr. Wang back to the police. The camp staff then threw Mr. Wang, who was severely injured, into the yard of the Gaobeidian Public Safety Bureau while no one was around and left.
After someone found Mr. Wang, Zhao from the Gaobeidian National Security Brigade informed his family to pick him up. By that time, Mr. Wang had endured five days without treatment for his injuries. Usually, patients with a bone fracture shouldnt be moved around as much as Wang Xiaolun was. However, Mr. Wang was frequently and carelessly moved around during these five days. During that time, his injuries were not allowed to heal and, consequently, they worsened. Mr. Wangs family went to the Gaobeidian National Security Brigade and demanded justice. Zhao told them, "I took orders from the higher level. Why dont you go and ask my boss?" Mr. Wangs family plans to ask for the return of lost possessions and compensation for pain and suffering.
