Ms. Guo Jingtai from the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Died as a Result of Persecution-induced Mental Trauma
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Guo Jingtai was a teacher in the Tonglian Company school in Shihezi, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (AR). She was savagely persecuted several times between January 2003 and November 2003. Agents of the 610 Office were responsible. She was mentally traumatized and developed a persecution-induced illness. She died on July 19, 2005. Following are the details.
Ms. Guo Jingtai, 65, was a senior teacher in the middle school affiliated with the Tonglian Company, which was formerly called Shihezi City 2nd Corps of the 8th Division of Xinjiang Production and Construction Group. The school merged in 2005 to become the Shihezi City Middle School. She was a very righteous and kind woman. Ms. Guo had been held at a forced labor camp for six years during the Cultural Revolution. During the Tienanmen Square Massacre in 1989, Ms. Guo participated in the local city college and technical school students' movements to support the students in Beijing. As a result, she was not allowed to work for five years, between 1989 and 1994, and suffered long-term purging by the Communist Party's political power group. In 1994 she somehow managed to get a position taking care of PE equipment in the middle school. She did this until her retirement.
Ms. Guo Jingtai started practicing Falun Gong in August 1996. On July 20, 1999, the CCP began to persecute Falun Gong. Because she clarified the facts, she was persecuted ruthlessly.
In November 1999, her father was dying. Ms. Guo returned to her hometown. She clarified the facts on the train on her way to Xinjiang AR. As a result, the conductor and police officials from the Jinchang Railway Station put her off the train.
Ms. Guo went to her son's home in June 2001. He lived in the Fanyu District, Guangzhou City. Officers from the Shawan Town Dongqu Street Committee and residential official Hu Ganxian persecuted her for telling the truth. They forced her family members to take her back to Xinjiang AR, making them return to Xinjiang in late December 2002.
On January 21, 2003 Ms. Guo was illegally arrested and taken to the Shihezi City "610 Office" Brainwashing Center where she refused to "reform" or write the three statements. As a result, National Security Team official Xu Ningdong tortured her. The officials handcuffed her behind her back, slapped her in the face, and brutally beat her, severely injuring one of her shoulders and arms. When she died she had not yet recovered from those injuries.
Ms. Guo was severely abused and mentally tormented. Faced with such horrors and having become mentally unclear, her tormentors still made her write the "three statements." (On July 21, 2003, she declared that her statements were null and void.) Not long after returning home on March 7, 2003, she suffered from the effects of severe mental trauma.
Ms. Guo had gone to the Wulumuqi Railway Station on July 25, 2003, to meet her mother. Plainclothes police followed her because she had been explaining the facts on the platform, but she escaped.
Ms. Guo was again arrested and taken to the 610 Office Brainwashing Center on September 26, 2003. During that time her family told the heads of the 610 Office, Li Handong and Xue Yuejin, that severe mental trauma due to persecution had led to her mental instability, and they hoped they could offer a chance for her to receive medical treatment and let her go home. The 610 Office heads did not listen and ignored the family's request. Policeman Xu Ningdong tried to"reform" her and tortured her again ruthlessly. She was re-injured and became completely mentally disordered.
On October 22, 2003, Ms. Guo was sent to the Shihezi No. 2 Detention Center. Due to the efforts of her relatives, the detention center head eventually realized that she was mentally traumatized and released her on the ninth day of her detention, to absolve themselves of any further responsibilities. She was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
At the end of December 2003, when Ms. Guo went to her hometown in Linying County, Henan Province, a doctor made a diagnosis and offered her a diagnosis certificate.
In January 2004, she went to her son's home in Guangzhou City. After several months' recuperation and therapy she began to calm down and recover. Later on she started hand-writing truth clarification flyers, clarifying the facts, and writing Falun Gong banners.
On June 30, 2004, Street Committee Office secretary Yang Dongming in Shawandongqu, Guangzhou City; residential official Hu Ganxian; Deputy head of Shawan Town Police Station Xie Debiao; National Security Team leader Jian; and officials from the Comprehensive Administrative Controlling Office arrived in two police cars and illegally intruded into Ms. Guo's son's home. They ignored the family's explanations of her condition and warnings against breaking the law. They humiliated her family members and ransacked her son's home. The violence affected her severely and resulted in a relapse of her mental disorder. They did not arrest her this time due to her family's strong protests.
After that, the police monitored their house closely. As soon as Ms. Guo went out they knew it and put pressure on her family, especially when a sensitive date approached, such as a holiday or a CPP meeting. She and her relatives were subjected to long-term pressure. She became fearful and developed insomnia. Her mind could no longer take the strain, and she died on July 19, 2005.
On the Chinese traditional memorial day in 2006, when Ms. Guo's son went to Fanyu Funeral Home to offer his respects to his mother, he played the video of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. As a result, officers Li Yanyi and Zheng Xihua from the Fanyu District 610 Office and officials from the Pingshan Police Station in the Zhongcun Township arrested him. They interrogated him for eleven hours and detained him, citing him with "disturbing the social order, participating in an illegal activity, and libel." In addition, they ransacked his home.
