(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Ma Liqin is a 47 year old retiree from the Qitaihe City No. 204 Geologic Exploration Team in Heilongjiang Province. She recovered from several chronic diseases after beginning to practice Falun Gong.
On March 5, 2002 Ms. Ma was arrested by policeman Qin Yong from the Xinxing District Dongfeng Police Station for practicing Falun Gong. She was later sent to the Beishan No. 2 Detention Center.
On March 15 the No. 2 Detention Center director, Yin Zhongliang, dragged Ms. Ma into his office and viciously tortured her. He kicked her, smashed her head against the wall, and punched her face. The torture caused bruises all over her body, and her head became terribly swollen. Ms. Ma lost consciousness at the scene, yet the police thought she was just pretending.
Later they acupunctured Ms. Ma's hegu point and administered medicine to resuscitate her heart. In order to avoid responsibility, they took Ms. Ma to the Xinxing Police Department, but the police department refused to take her. They passed by a hospital on their way back from the police department, yet the police from the Detention Center did not take Ms. Ma to the hospital for medical treatment. They also did not notify her family members. Later Ms. Ma's family members learned the news, and rushed to the detention center to insist they take her to the hospital.
The doctor diagnosed Ms. Ma with two clots of blood inside her brain. There were also bruises all over her lower back, legs, feet, and hands. Ms. Ma woke up four days later, but she had completely lost the ability to move her body.
