(Clearwisdom.net) In Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province, Falun Dafa practitioner Li Shaozhi was tortured and coerced into giving a "confession" to the Jiamusi police. He was tortured so severely that half of his body was paralyzed, and he became unconscious as a result of their brutalities. The doctor in the detention center said that the torture might have led to a stroke. The facts of his condition have also been submitted to the court. The Xiangyang District Court in Jiamusi has intentionally caused difficulties, acting as though human life has no value.

Mr. Li Shaozhi, over 40 years old, was illegally arrested and tortured by officers Chen Wanyou in Jiamusi Police Station. Mr. Li was coerced into giving a "confession" and was also forced to betray other practitioners who kept in contact with him. The police took him to the outer investigation office "dog barracks, " where they bashed Li Shaozhi with four-edged wooden clubs. He was beaten black and blue and then thrown into the dog kennel to be bitten. Other policemen who saw what was going on were dumbfounded at the brutality displayed.

Currently, Li Shaozhi's "case" has been handed over to the Xiangyang District People's Court of Jiamusi City. Zhao Yubin is handling the case. The family has engaged a lawyer for Mr. Li. When the lawyer requested a look at the records, intending to make a photocopy, Zhao Yubin took back the case records and indictment, claiming that he would have to ask his superiors for further instructions. The lawyer waited there for two hours while Zhao Yubin was on the phone. Finally, Zhao said he was now off duty. He told the lawyer to come again at 4 p.m. when they would be able to respond to the lawyer's questions about the court date.

When the lawyer returned to Zhao Yubin's at 4 p.m., instead of seeing him, a lady in the same office said that Mr. Zhao was in a meeting and he would be available the next afternoon. The next afternoon the lawyer still did not get to see Zhao Yubin. The lawyer found the office manager, who said that Zhao Yubin had asked for a one-week leave and that the office manager had approved it.
