Fifty-nine-year-old Mr. You Dabing is a practitioner from the Hulan District in Harbin City. He was sent to the Second District of the 9th Ward at Hulan Prison in 2003. Political instructors Zheng Hua and Liu Kai had prisoner Chen Xuejun beat Mr. You mercilessly. Liu Kai even dragged him and hit his head against the wall. Mr. You was forced to stand for more than ten hours a day for four days, and monitored day and night by other inmates that prevented him from moving around at will and speaking with other practitioners. Mr. You's teeth became loose due to the mistreatment, and his legs swelled, causing him unbearable pain. All of this was done in an attempt to force him to sign a guarantee statement. Then Mr. You was forced to perform slave labor, and he became so ill that he was sent to the hospital for a few months. In January 2006 prisoner Chen Xuejun beat Mr. You to the floor because he exchanged a few words with practitioner Mr. Zhang Guangli.

On March 6 a prison guard ordered Mr. Zhang to write a guarantee statement, but he refused. The prison guard told the other inmates to prevent Mr. Zhang from sleeping before 10 p.m. And to interrogate him all day long. On March 8 an officer ordered prisoner He Yan and other inmates to bring Mr. Zhang into a house, where they beat him severely. Then they dragged him out and forced him to stand for many long hours. Mr. Zhang's legs swelled and he was unable to walk. On March 10 the inmates were told to keep Mr. Zhang from sleeping for three or four days, and four inmates watched over him in shifts. Several practitioners went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution of Mr. Zhang. The guards separated them into different wards, and Mr. Zhang was sent to the 9th Ward on August 3, 2005.
