More Details of the Brutal Persecution That Led to the Death of Practitioner Zhang Jieping

October 01, 2006 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Mr. Zhang Jieping from Chongqing City died from respiratory failure on September 5, 2006. He died after over 4 months of torture by policemen from Baihelin Detention Center in Shapingba District.

Mr. Zhang Jieping was a 56-year-old retired worker from Jialing Plant in Chongqing City. He started to practice Falun Dafa in May 1995. He conducted himself according to the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." He worked very hard, and was kindhearted, honest and healthy. He had a good reputation and was well-respected at the plant.

Zhang Jieping was illegally arrested four times after Jiang Zemin's regime began the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999. He was taken by force to the plant's brainwashing center twice and detained at the county's detention center twice. He was sent to the forced labor camp and detained there for 2 years. The prolonged persecution did great harm to his body and mind.

In May 2000, the Party Secretary of the plant's subsidiary company deceived him into going to the plant's brainwashing center. There he was persecuted for one month. On November 9, 2000, he tried to go to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Dafa. However, he was stopped at the train station by policemen from his plant and members of the 610 Office. He was later detained at the plant's brainwashing center, and then he was sent to the county's detention center for four months.

On September 30, 2001, Zhang Jieping was arrested for clarifying the truth at his plant. His home was searched for money and personal belongings, which were confiscated. After being tortured for a month at the county's detention center, he was sentenced to two years of forced labor. During his detention at the Xishanping Forced Labor Camp in Chongqing City, he endured various tortures such as frequent beatings by policemen and drug addict inmates, lengthy periods of forced standing and confinement in a small room. His health suffered greatly and he lost the ability to walk.

On April 15, 2006, he was arrested again for clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa. The policemen from Jingkou Police Station sent him to the county's detention center. The policemen asked his family to sign the arrest warrant, but they refused. So, the policemen signed the form themselves and searched his home. Zhang Jieping was detained at the detention center for over four months this time. He was not allowed to make phone calls or have his family visit. He was totally isolated from the outside world and brutally tortured. On August 29, 2006, his son was finally allowed to visit him. He was already emaciated and paralyzed. He couldn't move his hands or feet and could only speak with a weak voice. That same day, he was sent to the No.1 People's Hospital in Shapingba District. The "treatment" he received at the hospital under the close surveillance of a group of policemen did not help. Instead, his condition deteriorated quickly. He passed away at the hospital on September 5, 2006.

Zhang Jieping was arrested and tortured several times. Each time he suffered tremendous mental and physical pain. Each time he returned home, he studied the Fa diligently, practiced the exercises and clarified the truth to people. Each time he recovered very quickly. He was very healthy before his last arrest. He died after suffering another four and a half months of ruthless torture at the detention center.
