Mr. Wang Guiming Tortured to Death at Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City--Warrant Issued for Wife's Arrest
(Clearwisdom.net) Wang Guiming was a practitioner from Tonghua City, Jilin Province. After being detained for less than three days, from the afternoon of February 27, 2008, to February 29, 2008, he was dead as a result of brutal torture in Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp, in Changchun City, Jilin Province.
Wang Guiming's wife, Han Fengxia, hired a lawyer to bring a lawsuit against the suburban Procuratorate in Changchun City on March 5, 2008. At that time she specifically requested that her husband's corpse not be cremated. Six people, including Procuratorate Head Wang, Deputy Li, and Director Li Hongbo promised not to cremate the corpse.
On March 8, several people went to Tonghua City, including Wang Zhiming, head of Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp; Yang Guang, deputy of the labor camp; the director of the Procuratorate; and the deputy of the Judicature Bureau, as well as the division head of the Provincial Prison Administration Bureau. On March 9, they met with Wang Guiming's family and promised them compensation of 50,000 yuan to help with financial difficulties as a result of his death. However, the family had solid evidence that proved that Wang Guiming's death was a result of the torture administered by electric shock while he was in the forced labor camp. To cover up the facts, the officials told the prison doctor to list the cause of death as "sudden death due to natural causes" and not to allow any doctors from other provinces to examine his body. Wang Zhiming's family refused to accept the 50,000 yuan compensation, and instead asked to talk to the prison guards on duty the day of Mr. Wang's death. The officials refused to disclose the name of the prison guards involved. The family members were able to learn from other sources that a man named Yu Tie is the head of the division where Wang Guiming was tortured to death while he was detained at Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp.
The officials hadn't reach an agreement with Mr. Wang's family by March 9, so they returned to Changchun City. On March 13, Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp officials, the procurator's court, the provincial prison administration bureau, and Heimazhi Forced Labor Camp officials went to Tonghua City once again. At 10:00 a.m. on March 13, on the fifth floor of the judicature bureau, they met with Mr. Wang's family once again and asked how much money the family would accept as compensation for his death. The family still insisted that they wished to talk to the prison guards involved. No agreement was reached at that time.
On March 14, an urgent meeting was held in Tonghua Police Department and a decision was made to arrest Wang's wife, Han Fengxia, as well as other members of his family, and to charge them with "creating a public disturbance." There is now a police car on around the clock surveillance in front of Mr. Wang's home.
We are asking for an urgent call for the WOIPFG (World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong) to investigate this case. We are asking that concerned individuals the world over give their righteous support in this matter.
