|An Incomplete list
of Falun Gong Practitioners in Zhaoyuan City of Shandong Province who have
suffered inhumane tortures:
Li Wen-nan, from Shanyujia Village of Jinling Town.
At one O'clock on the night of July 23rd, several people suddenly broke
into his home and took him to the local government building. 5 or 6 people
encircled him and beat him madly. He was beaten to fall down to the ground
many times. As soon as he stood up, they would continue the brutal beatings.
They beat him until he could not stand up anymore. They then sent him to
the hospital, where X-ray examination showed that there was internal bleeding
inside his breast. For many days he could not work after he went
back home from hospital.
Wang Cui-qin, from Liujia Village of Jinling Town. The local
government officials detained her at a room. Two people stood behind her
and beat her with rubber clubs. Two people stood in front of her and beat
her. One of them slapped her face with a book, and the other whose last
name is Zhuang beat her head madly. She felt that her head was to fall
down. Her face was swollen because of the mad beatings. After they
tortured her like this for about half an hour, they forced her to stand
with her leg bent and with a cement road-pile on her shoulders. As soon
as she moved, they would beat her madly. They tortured her like this for
another half an hour.
Yu Ai-yun, from Yujia Village of Jinling Town. On the evening
of July 21, she and the other 4 Falun Gong practitioners were dragged to
the residential area of the local government officials. Local officials
and their family members, including the secretary of the Party Committee
Zhuang Yue-lin, came over all together. After verbally abusing practitioners,
they started to force them to practice the exercises, saying that they
would make practitioners practice as much as they want. First they ordered
practitioners to raise their arms to the eyebrow high. Then they ordered
them to bend two legs to 90 degrees and told them not to move. Then
they started to punch and kick them. When these Falun Gong practitioners
told them peacefully that the gesture was not from Falun Gong, they said
it was "Falun Gong" they created by themselves. When the Falun Gong practitioners
refused to do the exercise like that, brutal beatings ensued. They tortured
them like this for about 20 minutes.

gentleman of 78 years old. He was forced to stand barefooted on the asphalt
