Practitioner Mr. Zhang Zhagen Tortured to Death in the Kaifeng City Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhang Zhagen from Kaifeng City, Henan Province, was tortured to the brink of death in the Kaifeng City Forced Labor Camp in Henan Province. He was sent to the Kaifeng City Medical Institute Hospital for emergency treatment on June 24, 2005. On the night of June 27, 2005, he died. An investigation seeking more detailed information on how Mr. Zhang Zhagen was persecuted to death is currently underway.
The doctor who treated Mr. Zhang said that he was dying when he arrived at the hospital from the forced labor camp, and that if he had survived, he would have most likely remained in a comatose state. In the hospital Mr. Zhang was completely unconscious and in a deep coma. He had such difficulty breathing that he had to be put on a ventilator. His face and legs were swollen, and all of his major organs were malfunctioning. While he was in the hospital, he was monitored 24 hours a day by police guards from the forced labor camp, who stayed outside the emergency room, and his family members were not allowed to visit him.
Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhang Zhagen was a 52-year-old former employee of the Kaifeng Guest House as well as a retired military officer. He was repeatedly and illegally detained. On March 6, 2005, the police from Daxing Police Station of Kaifeng City took him from his home, sentenced him to a two-year term of imprisonment, and detained him at the Kaifeng City Forced Labor Camp for further persecution. Although Mr. Zhang had gone on a hunger strike to protest the persecution he was subjected to at the forced labor camp, the officials and police guards there kept torturing him. The forced labor camp authorities didn't send him to Kaifeng City Medical Institute Hospital for emergency treatment until June 24, when he had been on his hunger strike for nine days and had been tortured to the brink of death. At that time, Mr. Zhang Zhagen's bloodshot eyes were wide open, his face was swollen, and he had difficulty catching his breath. His arms were covered in purple bruises from the beatings he had received.
It was generally known that Mr. Zhang Zhagen had been illegally detained at the Education Division of the forced labor camp. Xu Yinhai, the Head of the Education Division, had instigated criminals to deprive him of sleep, drag him, force him to stand under the baking sun on hot days, and to torture him using several other methods.
Xu Yinhai, over 40, is a police guard at the Kaifeng City Forced Labor Camp. He is quick-tempered and is called one of "the four wicked evils" by the criminals at the forced labor camp. He has instigated criminals to torture several Falun Gong practitioners.
