Mr. Wang Dayuan, thirty-six years old, a resident of Harbin, was a lecturer and faculty member in computer studies at Harbin Institute of Technology. On April 2, in order to compel him to write a statement criticizing Falun Gong, Harbin City No. 1 Prison guards took turns to beat him up and punish him by making him stand in painful postures for a whole day. He was not given any food. On April 3, Wang Dayuan was forced to write a self-criticism statement under undue pressure from the violent beatings. On April 4, he tore up the statement and the prison police increased the intensity of the torture on him. In the end, Wang Dayuan could not stand, so the police made him crawl down the hall and threw him into a storage room. On April 5, Wang Dayuan was in a very bad condition but the police still forced him to work. They also violently beat him in the afternoon. On April 5, 2004, Wang Dayuan stopped breathing.
