(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Wang Wensheng from Wudalianchi City, Heilongjiang Province, was brutal beaten by corrupt officials after he went to Beijing to appeal. The beating seriously damaged his heart, and he died in April 2000.
Mr. Wang Wensheng was only 34 years old and was employed by the Scenery Region Petroleum Company in Wudalianchi City. Mr. Wang, although young, had poor health and suffered from a number of serious illnesses including high blood pressure and kidney disease. After cultivating Falun Dafa in April 1998, all his illnesses were eliminated.
Jiang and his regime began their coordinated persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. Because Mr. Wang Wensheng felt so many benefits from his practice of Falun Gong, he decided to appeal in person at the National Appeal Office in Beijing. On the way to Beijing, he was arrested by Ji County Police in Tianjin City. He was beaten severely for more than 24 hours from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. the next day. His entire body was covered with bruises, his face looked deformed and his jaw was dislocated.
Mr. Wang Wensheng was later picked up by the Wudalianchi City Police. His heart was severely damaged during the beating he received by the police in Ji County, and he was bailed out on medical parole. He went back to work after feeling better in the hospital. He was only back at work for three days when he was arrested again by the Wudalianchi City Political and Security Office. He was then released after paying five thousand yuan extortion money. Most of Mr. Wang's time in the detention center was spent receiving torturous beatings at the hands of the hard core prisoners who beat him with fists and kicked him into exhaustion.
From these torturous episodes, Mr. Wang Wensheng became very weak. His family had to pay another five thousand yuan to get him out on medical parole a second time. He spent an additional ten thousand yuan in the hospital. But the torture had its effect on his mind and body, and the damage was too severe. Mr. Wang died in April 2000.
