(Clearwisdom.net) On June 7, 2005, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Xu Jishan from Daqing City died as a result of fatal abuse in Daqing Prison. It has been confirmed that five inmates drowned him, pushing him into a pool and holding his head under the water. The prison guards ordered them to do this.
Xu Jishan and his son
Those in Daqing Prison who participated in persecuting Mr. Xu Jishan include:
Jiang Shuchen, the deputy prison head; Guo Chuntang and Wang Debo, prisons guards from the 610 Office; and Li Fengjiang, head of No. 7 Prison Ward.
They ordered inmates Li Liancai, Wang Anhui, Bo Chong, and Guo Liyang to torture practitioner Xu Jishan without restraint in a cell of the No. 7 Prison Ward. Beginning May 13, 2005, they attempted to brainwash him and force him to write the so-called Three Statements to give up Falun Gong practice. They physically tortured him for seven days by forcing him to stand, beating and verbally abusing him, depriving him of sleep, dousing him with cold water, and tying him up with ropes, as well as other cruel methods. The political head of the No. 7 Prison Ward Zhang Dezhi led the inmates to tie Xu up, put him into a pool and pour water over him. Then they forced him to stand on the floor of the laundry, deprived him of sleep, and cruelly tortured him for eight days.
At 8:00 a.m. on June 7, 2005, inmates Li Liancai, Guo Liyang, Wang Anhui, Bo Chong and another one tore off Mr. Xu's clothes, dragged him into the laundry, and poured over 100 basins of cold water over him. As they were pushing Xu Jishan into a pool, many inmates in the cells heard him yell "Help!" He died at about 1:00 p.m. on June 7 as a result of this torture.
After his death, Mr. Xu Jishan was taken to the No. 4 Hospital of Daqing City. His body is being kept in the hospital's mortuary. So far, those responsible still dare not report the death to their superiors and are trying their best to cover up their crimes.
