Chengdu Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zhong Fangqiong Brutally Tortured by Unlawful Police

March 23, 2003 |  


(Clearwisdom.net) Zhong Fangqiong, a 37-year-old female Dafa practitioner in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, was in the transportation business. Before practicing Falun Gong, she had congenital angioma [a tumor composed chiefly of blood vessels or lymph vessels] After having surgery in 1995, her condition deteriorated. In 1997, over 30 experts from Sichuan Medical College held a consultation and unanimously expressed that internationally, there was no effective treatment for this disease. At the end of 1997, she started to suffer from serious chronological blood shortage in the brain. Medicine became her long-term companion. On her face, there were also large areas of deep-colored "butterfly spots."

The miracle happened after she obtained the Fa and started practicing Falun Gong on March 5 of 1999, -- the entire grouping of "butterfly spots" on her face completely vanished within a week. Within two months, the angioma and shortage of blood in brain were all completely cured. She gained a new life and was free from the pain.

On October 1, 1999, she and other five practitioners went to the office of the "Commercial Morning Paper" to clarify the facts and correct the misleading reports, confusing right and wrong. With her personal experience, she validated that Falun Gong was beneficial to physical health and mind. However, she was detained for 15 days by the lawless police in the name of "besieging a newspaper office." Soon, the news media in Chengdu twisted what she said and published a distorted report. They lied, saying because she practiced Falun Gong, she caught this cancerous disease. The report also lied that Falun Gong did not permit her to go to the hospital to get injections and medicine, etc. They even made a television program and repeatedly showed it on Sichuan TV station's "Ten O'clock Tonight" column.

On December 19, 1999, Zhong Fangqiong went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. On March 7, 2000, she once again went to Beijing. She had been detained six times successively by the public security, and once by the criminal section, for a total of 120 days. During those periods, on numerous occasions she requested to go home and take a shower, and take a look at her child, the very basic human requests which were rejected without any reason. Since Zhong was a single parent and as she was constantly detained, her nine-year old son was forced to be left alone at home. Zhong Fangqiong's mother, Chen Guoxing was 65 year old. Because the grandmother practiced Falun Gong, she was also deprived of the right to look after her grandson. Furthermore, she was even deported from Sichuan and forced to go back to her hometown. A family was hence separated. Afterwards, Zhong was repeatedly detained again. On June 14, 2000, once again she was arrested by Chengdu police. At the same time, the public security also rummaged through her home and confiscated her personal property. To prevent her from telling people the truth, Chengdu City Police Station sentenced her one-year of forced labor when her 11th detention term ended. They imprisoned her in the Nanmusi Female Detention Center in Zizhong City to continue to persecute her.

On December 28, 2001, Zhong Fangqiong was snatched by police in Pengzhou City, and was illegally imprisoned in Pengzhou Detention Center for many of days. In about April, 2002, Zhong Fangqiong was kidnapped at home by Jianyang wicked police who took her to Jianyang to brutally torture her. She was beaten, which resulted in cuts and bruises, and her head was bleeding. Under this situation, the wicked police unwillingly sent her to Chengdu 416 Hospital to treat her wounds. She was able to escape from the hospital, and became destitute and homeless in order to avoid illegally arrest.

In mid December, 2002, Fangqiong was abducted by several unlawful police in her residence in Chengdu. She was locked up in a hotel room in Chengdu Baifurong Hotel, and was interrogated under torture and extorted a confession by the police. They tied her hands in back on a chair for nearly six days and nights. During this period, they often beat and kicked her and slapped her face. They even poured cold water on her head, from her neck down to her undergarments. Some drunken police also poured alcohol on her face and head, from her neck, soaking her undergarments, in order to humiliate her [note: Falun Dafa practitioners do not smoke or drink alcohol]. They would not let her sleep for several days in succession. Hence, a couple of days later, Zhong fell down from the 4th floor and was in coma for several hours. At that time, her hipbone and leg suffered serious damage. Thirty-one days later, near death, she was sent home. Now she is bedridden and cannot take care of herself.

This is the bitter experience a kind-hearted Dafa practitioner who believes in "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance" has suffered since July 20th, 1999.
