(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Liao Yuanhua, a resident of Wuxue City of Hubei Province, was illegally arrested for practicing Falun Gong. Prior to the arrest, he was the Discipline Committee Secretary of Wuxue City Forestry Bureau. He followed a high moral standard, and his work performance was outstanding.

In June 2000, Mr. Liao Yuanhua was detained. He was sent to Fanjiatai Labor Camp in Shayang City of Hubei Province, where he repeatedly suffered inhumane persecution. His effort to clarify the truth with a kind heart only caused more severe torture.

Below are the four major tortures Mr. Liao Yuanhua suffered at the labor camp:

1) Within a month after Mr. Liao was sent to the labor camp, policemen He Ping, Shi Huaping and Zu Jian instigated a group of criminals to beat Liao. One of his legs was broken during the torture and to this day he struggles to get around.

2) In the brickyard kiln of Fanjiatai Labor Camp, it is 80?C (around 160? F to 170?F), and the burning bricks are red-hot. One day the police pushed Liao Yuanhua onto a pile of burning bricks. With smoke coming from his burnt body, Liao Yuanhua fainted instantly. The police watched and laughed at his suffering.

3) Policeman Xiao Tianbo put Mr. Liao in handcuffs and foot shackles, and locked him into a room. Xiao then assigned four criminals to torture Mr. Liao for 21 days. Everyday, cries of pain could be heard from far away for at least two to three hours. Some kind-hearted policemen said, "It is horrible, even the birds wouldn't stop near that window."

4) The police forced the lame and hurt Liao Yuanhua to do heavy labor jobs. Later policemen Xiong Zuyong and other police started spreading rumors in Wuxue City and other areas in Hubei Province that Liao Yuanhua betrayed his conscience and Falun Gong. They wanted to destroy Liao Yuanhua mentally in this way.

Currently Liao Yuanhua has injuries all over his body, and his face and ears have suffered serious damage due to the torture.

The friends and relatives of Mr. Liao Yuanhua and other kind-hearted people are paying attention to Mr. Liao's situation. We hereby call upon the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong to set up a case and investigate the details of crimes committed by Fanjiatai Labor Camp in Division No. 4, Subgroup No. 7.
