33 Year-Old Practitioner Mr. Zhang Jun in Dalian City, Liaoning Province Died From Persecution

December 19, 2004 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhang Jun in Dalian City, Liaoning Province was savagely tortured by Jiang's minions for persisting in his belief. He was held at the Dalian City Forced Labor Camp and died in October 2004.

Zhang Jun lived in Dalian City, Liaoning Province. He was a leading technical expert at a foreign investment company and had obtained the Fa in 1997. In 2000, a collaborator [former Falun Gong practitioner who gave up his belief after torture and brainwashing] reported Zhang Jun to the police. The police then arrested Zhang Jun. He was illegally sent to the Dalian City Forced Labor Camp where he was tortured beyond belief. He was hung up, otherwise physically tormented, not allowed to sleep, threatened and shocked with electric batons. One of his legs lost its function as a result.

On March 12, 2001, Dalian City Forced Labor Camp set up Division 8, specializing in persecuting male Falun Gong practitioners. On March 19, the guards ordered detained Falun Gong practitioners to be tortured according to government orders. Guards Wang Jun and Zhu led four inmates into Class 3. They stripped practitioners Qu Bin, Qu Fei and Chang Cheng of all their clothes and then beat them with rubber clubs. The authorities gave the inmates sentence reductions in exchange for them torturing the practitioners. They used multiple electric batons to shock the soles of each practitioner's feet, the backs of their knees, their cheeks, mouths and genital areas. The guards found a hand-written Hongyin [Falun Gong book-a collection of Master' poems] on practitioner Zhang Jun. They handcuffed him to a heating pipe and shocked him with electric batons. They tried to force him to give up Falun Gong practice, to curse Dafa and Master and write a "Guarantee Statement," but Zhang Jun refused.

After Zhang Jun was released from the Dalian City Forced Labor Camp, perpetrators from the local "610 Office" and from the Party Committee constantly harassed him, which caused him tremendous stress. Zhang Jun passed away in October 2004.
