Chongqing Practitioner Ms. Wei Hua Died as a Result of Persecution in a Mental Hospital (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Wei Hua was a practitioner in Chongqing City. On October 18, 2005, she was healthy both in body and mind, but the Xiejiawan Street Resident's Committee Secretary Yu Fulin organized people to send her to a mental hospital anyway. On November 25, 2005, the mental hospital suddenly issued a "imminent death notice." Ms. Wei's family members rushed to the hospital and saw that she was on the verge of death. She was not recognizable and could not speak. She was vomiting and had diarrhea. There was an oxygen tube in place and she was catheterized. Ms. Wei was paralyzed and mentally traumatized, requiring others' care. After suffering in pain for more than a year, she died on April 30, 2007.
Wei Hua after being tortured in the mental hospital
Fifty-seven-year-old Ms. Wei Hua was a retired employee of the Xiejiawan Department Store in Chongqing City, which is also called Xiejiawan Industry and Mining Trade Company. After she started practicing Dafa in 1996, she benefited both mentally and physically. After the persecution of Falun Dafa started in 1999, she was sentenced to forced labor for two years because she persisted in practicing Falun Dafa. Between 2001 and 2003, she was detained and tortured in the Chongqing Women's Forced Labor Camp in Maojiashan.
On September 6, 2005, just before the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting took place in Chongqing City, the police from the Xiejiawan Street Police Station took her away and sent her to a brainwashing center. On October 18, 2005, the Xiejiawan Street Resident's Committee Secretary Yu Fulin and Yang Zhixue from the brainwashing center forced Ms. Wei's husband Liao Linfu to sign and agree to send her to a mental hospital, claiming that she was suffering from a "cultural mental disease." At the time, Ms. Wei Hua was healthy both physically and mentally. Those who played a role in this persecution included Yu Fulin; Yang Zhixue; Du Chaojun, who is in charge of the Xiejiawan Neighboring Committee and works in the Xiejiawan Department Store; and two health workers. When Ms. Wei was sent to the Shipingqiao Branch of Qiulongpo District Mental Hospital, the former "Mine Machine Factory Employee Hospital," Yu Fulin told the doctor, "She practices Falun Gong and she has been in a labor camp for one and a half years."
Afterwards, Liao Linfu went to see his wife many times. When he saw that his wife was normal, he asked for her release many times. However, all of his requests were denied. On November 22, Mr. Liao went to the hospital again and saw that Wei Hua was healthy and in a normal state of mind. He then left and went on a business trip.
Only three days later, on November 25, the hospital suddenly sent an "imminent death notice," urging her family to come and take her home. Wei Hua's fourth youngest sister went to the hospital during the night and saw a sad scene. Wei Hua was paralyzed and on the verge of death. She wasn't recognizable, couldn't speak, and was mentally traumatized. She was vomiting and had diarrhea and a high fever. There was an oxygen tube in place and she was catheterized. The 120 ward of Chongqing Hospital would not accept her. The family had to bring her home.
The following year, Wei Hua's family went to the organizations that were directly responsible for persecuting her to appeal, including the Shipingqiao Branch of the Jiulongpo District Mental Hospital, the Xiejiawan Police Station, and the Xiejiawan Trade Company. But they all claimed that her condition was caused by her "disease" and denied it was due to any form of persecution. For example, when the doctors in the Shipingqiao Branch of the Jiulongpo District Mental Hospital sent her back to her family, she was paralyzed and could not speak, but on the following day, when her family went back to question them, the doctors denied that Ms. Wei had been paralyzed and unable to speak. When her family found the responsible person with the street residents' committee to discuss the fees they should pay to treat Ms. Wei, the person replied that they did not have any responsibility or obligation to pay and told them to go to Wei Hua's work unit. When her family went to her former work unit--the Xiejiawan Trade Company--they found it was already bankrupt. People in her work unit said they were bankrupt and did not have any money to pay for her care and that Wei Hua's situation was caused by her own illness. Her family had to resort to legal means to hold people responsible. They went to the Jiulongpo District Court and the Procuratorate to explain the situation, but the two departments both said that the family did not have enough evidence and could not hold the relevant people responsible.
