(Clearwisdom.net) In late 1999, Falun Dafa practitioner Ma Xinxing from Shanghai was detained in a mental hospital for three months. The police and doctors claimed that practitioners detained in the hospital were suffering from psychosis. They also attempted to have practitioners give up their belief, threatening to turn the practitioners crazy. One of the tactics they used was to force practitioners to take harmful drugs. If practitioners refused to take the drugs, the police and doctors oftentimes resorted to force-feeding.
Ma Xinxing once went to Beijing to appeal and was brutally beaten by the police. Shanghai authorities sentenced him to three years of forced labor education in retaliation for his appeal. What Jiang Zemin fears most is when practitioners exercise their rights bestowed by the Constitution and go to Beijing to appeal. Jiang has issued orders to leaders at all levels in the government, ordering them to keep close watch on practitioners and not to allow practitioners to appeal. Once practitioners from a certain area are found appealing in Beijing, leaders in that area will be punished.
During the SARS epidemic in 2003, Jiang fled to Shanghai to hide. After his arrival in Shanghai, the police there became more rampant in persecuting Dafa practitioners. Authorities of the Third Labor Camp in Shanghai brutally tortured Ma Xinxing, which eventually led to his death. An earlier report of his death can be found at http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/2/27/45554.html.
