(Clearwisdom.net) A March 4, 2001 news report revealed that Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Chen Guibin from Wucheng County, Shandong Province died as a result of being beaten by security officers at his place of employment, a cotton manufacturing facility. Below are some additional facts.

Even after Mr. Chen Guibin became paralyzed from the beatings he remained mentally quite clear. During treatment at a hospital, he told all his friends and relatives about how he was grossly abused and persecuted. Before he was beaten, the three e people who were with him, his wife Zhou Haitao, Falun Gong practitioner Chen Wentian and he had already been illegally locked up for over ten days in a small dark room beside the Political and Security Division area.

On that particular day they summoned Chen Guibin to the Political and Security Division. When he entered the room, four men, including Political and Security Division chief Hou Jincai and Wu Xiaogang, Yang Jiangong and Yao Jinshan surrounded Chen Guibin and put him in handcuffs. The four of them were drunk. They stood on either side of him and beat him severely.

Chen Guibin said, "When they were beating me, my head banged against the strongbox and I lost consciousness. They continued beating me for a long time. Later they carried me out of the Political and Security Division into the open and left me in the freezing snow for over one hour. Eventually they carried me back to the Political and Security Division and left me on a wooden bed. They opened all the windows, locked the door and left."

Around 8:00 p.m. Chen Guibin heard his wife who was detained next door say she wanted to go to the toilet. He shouted to her, "Haitao (his wife's name), they beat me up till I am paralyzed." Through the window Zhou Haitao saw Chen Guibin lying motionless on the wooden bed.

The next day in the morning, Zhou Haitao saw the company's vice-president Wang Jinzhu and asked him, "What is going to happen, now that Chen Guibin is paralyzed from the beatings?" Wang Jinzhu's attitude was extremely bad. He indicated he couldn't be bothered with her. Zhou Haitao saw the general manager Wang Yumin and she asked again. Wang Yumin also ignored her. Later, the security guards forcibly dragged Zhou Haitao back into the small dark room and handcuffed her to the head of a bed.

The next morning, Chen Guibin's mother came to the factory. She discovered that Chen Guibin was beaten until he became paralyzed. She requested a doctor to examine Chen Guibin. The doctor used a needle to prick Chen Guibin's sole, but he did not move his leg. Zhou Haitao, still in handcuffs, asked Chen Guibin, "Where are you hurting?" Chen Guibin, also in handcuffs said, "My neck hurts."

At 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. on the 9th, Chen Guibin was then sent to a hospital. By then he had already been lying paralyzed on the wooden bed for one day and one night. According to the doctor's examination, two sections of his cervical vertebra were badly fractured. A CT scan found that the bone had even protruded. The doctor said, "If you had come a few hours later, he would have died at the factory. His bladder would have burst, as he no longer could pass urine."

Half a month after Chen Guibin became paralyzed, the Yinhe Company manager extorted 3,000 yuan bail money from Zhou Haitao before releasing her. Chen Guibin had already undergone three surgeries at the Shengli Hospital in Jinan Province.

On January 25, 2001 Chen Guibin went home, equipped with an oxygen tank. He passed away on February 7, 2001.

Information from an insider: The reason the security officers at his place of employment dared to beat Chen Guibin to death was their backing from the police and from the 610 Office.

During the beatings of Chen Guibin, police vehicles from the Wucheng County Police Department and from the "610 Office" were parked at the company. Zhang Ruijun and Xu Bingxin from the Political and Security Division of the police department were also present at the scene. The county Party security also gave orders to get a fine of ten thousand yuan from the Yinhe Company, saying it was to pay for the costs of incarcerating the Falun Gong practitioners from the Yinhe Company who went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong.
