Falun Gong Practitioners Abused in Mental Hospital in Jiujiang City, Jiangxi Province
The 5th People's Hospital in Jiujiang City, Jiangxi Province, is a mental hospital in Jiujiang City. Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Jiang Xiaoying and Ms. Wang Ying have been detained at the hospital and treated as mental patients by the CCP agents for long periods. Both of them have been forced to divorce their spouses.
Ms. Jiang is over 50 years old. She is a nurse at the 5th Hospital. Because she would not renounce her belief in Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, her employer and the Jiujiang City 610 Office, conspired to send her to a forced labor camp. After her term at the labor camp ended, the director of the hospital imprisoned her in the No. 2 Section in the hospital. While she was there, she was tied down and injected against her will with drugs that damage the nervous system. The director instigated other patients to attack and isolate her. For several years, she wasn't allowed to see any of her family members. Ms. Jiang asked to be released many times, but a staff member in the health safety department, surnamed, He threatened to send her back to the labor camp if she continued to speak out.
Ms. Jiang's brother requested ten days of vacation from the hospital for Ms. Jiang on January 22, 2009, in order to take her home to Duchang County for the Chinese New Year. He was forced to guarantee in writing that he would bring her back to the hospital after ten days.
Ms. Wang Ying is middle-aged. She is employed at Jiujiang City Civil Administration Bureau. She was taken to a forced labor camp because she practices Falun Gong. When her term ended, her employer tried to force her to accept a lump sum payment and retire early. When Ms. Wang refused, her manager, surnamed Long, forced her into the 5th People's Hospital. The manager claimed that if she agreed to the lump sum payment, they would immediately go to the hospital to seek her release.
On January 21, 2009, Ms. Wang's ex-husband, Xu Zenghan, went to the hospital to request her release. The head of the health safety department turned him down. Xu Zenghan told the official that hospitals cannot detain people. If Ms. Wang was not released, he said he would sue the hospital. The official told him that Ms. Wang was not being detained at the hospital, rather, she was being hospitalized. If her employer could pay the medical fees (over 4,000 yuan), then they would release her. Afterwards, Manager Long at Ms. Wang's place of employment, the city's Civil Administration Bureau, agreed to pay the fees.
On the afternoon of January 22, 2009, when Ms. Wang's son and his aunt went to the hospital to take Ms. Wang home for the Chinese New Year, the health safety department head said that Ms. Wang's employer had taken her to the hospital. The manager had to sign the release form and take Ms. Wang away personally. The head said that the 610 Office had told hospital officials numerous times that they could not release her casually, because Ms. Wang practiced Falun Gong.
On the morning of January 23, 2009, Ms. Wang's son and his aunt went to the Civil Administration Bureau. The staff person responsible said that they had already paid the hospital fees and whether the hospital releases the person or not was not their business.
