Ms. Zhong Fangqiong Tortured in National Security Division of the Wuhou District Police Department in Chengdu City, Sichuan Provence
(Clearwisdom.net) Chengdu practitioner Ms. Zhong Fangqiong was arrested on August 1, 2007. Her family was unable to locate her, later discovering that she had first been "illegally detained" at the Jinhua Brainwashing Center in Wuhou District and had then taken to the Chengdu City Detention Center. In November 2007, Ms. Zhong was illegally arrested under orders from the Wuhou Procuratorate. About two weeks ago, her case was transferred to the Wuhou District Court. In the National Security Division of the Wuhou District Police Department, CCP members beat Ms. Zhong and then smeared some sort of hot mustard-like chemical on her face that stung very badly. Every part of her skin in contact with the chemical developed a rash and peeled.
More than ten practitioners were arrested by the Wuhou Procuratorate including Ms. Mao Kun, Mr. Liu Bangcheng, Mr. Jiang Zonglin, Ms. Liu Jia, Mr. Ding Zeyang, and also Ms. Zhou Huimin, who has been tortured to death. These arrests were all ordered by Wang Pengfei (male), head of the National Security Division of the Wuhou District Police Department.
Around 4 p.m. on August 1, 2007, Ms. Zhong Fangqiong was riding her electric bike after leaving Ms. Fu's home. Within three minutes after she drove away, she was forced off her bike by one car and then surrounded by five or six others. She was then arrested. (It was later learned that those that arrested her had been waiting in a tea shop below her apartment since 11 a.m. that day). They then ransacked her home and arrested practitioners who were making flyers in her home. In fact, the police had already been monitoring her contacts with other practitioners.
On August 3, Wang Pengfei secretly tok Ms. Zhong Fangqiong, Ms. Liu Jia, Ms. Xu Xiaorong, and Mr. Li to the second floor of Yuanyuan Hotel in Jitou Town. After placing them in separate holding areas, they handcuffed Ms. Zhong to a chair and directed a very bright bulb into her eyes. Police officers took shifts torturing her in different ways over 24 hours and did not let her sleep.
Because Ms. Zhong did not cooperate with them, around August 13, her "case manager," Yuan (first name unknown, a police officer in charge of persecuting Falun Gong, First Division), had already tortured her for ten days. When he didn't get any results, at around 2 a.m. that night he used police equipment to stab Ms. Zhong's lower back and thighs in front of the security guard, each time for about an hour. When she fainted, he would apply the stinging chemical on her upper and lower eyelids, temples, inside her nose and even in her mouth. Every inch of her skin touched by the chemical developed a rash, swelling, and peeling skin.
After depriving Ms. Zhong of sleep for half a month, her feet became swollen from sitting; the skin on the bottoms of her feet was peeling; her hands had swollen and started to fester, especially in the wrist area because of the handcuffs; she became humpbacked due to the handcuffs being affixed to the ground; and her lower back was intolerably painful. Then, on August 17 from 1 p.m. to around 5 p.m., Pengfei Wang, police officer Yuan (first name unknown) from the First Division, officer Zeng Tao (male) from another police station, and a security guard beat her as they drank beer. They shouted, "If we beat you to death, then we will fill out some random name on the cremation form and cremate you."
They beat her with their fists and a spindle-shaped rod. Blood poured from her lips, she saw stars, her head ached, and she felt like fainting. They still ordered police officer Yuan to apply the stinging chemicals to Ms. Zhong's already-disfigured face. A strong odor of ammonia overcame Ms. Zhong, and fluids from her nose, mouth, and eyes all came pouring out. Ms. Zhong was in shock, her entire face in severe, stinging pain, and she fainted immediately.
