11. [Guangxi Province] Crimes Committed by Litang Prison
For years police from the Litang Prison in Guangxi Province used inhumane methods to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners.

They handcuff practitioners to trees and to the basketball stand and shock them with electricity for consecutive days and nights.
Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Liang Shengping from Nanning City was arrested and sent to the brainwashing center. Officials from the 610 Office threatened and deceived his parents and relatives with the intention of turning Mr Liang against Dafa. Parents and relatives came to see him and knelt down and begged him in tears to give up Falun Gong. Liang refused to give up his belief, so the officials deprived him of sleep for six consecutive days and nights. In the winter they tortured him with cold wet towels, making him numb.

15. [Laiyuan County, Hebei Province] Further Developments of Ms. Li Yanping's Case: Public Prosecutor Made Up Evidence
On January 25, 2007, the Laiyuan County Court illegally put Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Li Yanping from Houquanfang Village, Laiyuan County on trial. The evidence the public prosecutor presented in court was all made up. He ridiculously presented fabricated evidence on behalf of Li Yanping's husband. In reality, neither Wei Jinkui, Bai Shutian, Zhang Fang, policemen from the Public Security Bureau nor the public prosecutor from the Procuratorate ever approached her husband for information about Li Yanping after her arrest. Her husband was very angry at their false claims and was about to expose it on the spot, but he was stopped for no reason. When Li Yanping began to mention how the police from the Public Security Bureau tortured her and violently gathered evidence by force, the judge stopped her by saying that the incident would be investigated outside the court.
Within the last seven years, more than thirty people from Laiyuan County, Liaoning Province have been sentenced to prison and forced labor camps. Three people were tortured to death.
