(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Chen Jiansheng, a Falun Gong practitioner from Xi'an City, Shaanxi Province, died on October 11, 2005 as a result of the torture he endured at Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp in Shaanxi Province. (Minghui.org/Clearwisdom.net reported his death in 2005 http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2005/11/13/66813.html)
Mr. Chen Jiansheng was an employee at the Xi'an Branch of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and was commonly regarded as a very nice person at work. After he started practicing Falun Gong, his physical ailments were cured without the need for medical treatment. Since the persecution began in 1999, Mr. Chen had been publicly spreading the truth about Falun Gong. At the end of 2004, the police spotted and arrested him when he was distributing Falun Gong materials on Dongda Street in Xi'an. He was thrown into Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp where he suffered torture.
The following is the direct cause of Mr. Chen Jiansheng's death. In September 2005, Mr. Chen went on a hunger strike as a way of civil disobedience to protest the cruel tortures forced upon him. To punish him, prison guards, including Yang Jianbin, Yang Yalong, Zhang Weilong and Wang Jinlong, ordered prison inmates to escalate the torture of Mr. Chen.
They subjected him to the infamous "Death Bed torture" as well as the torture of force-feeding. The purpose of force-feeding is never to nourish the victim, but just the opposite. In fact, violence is always used in the process of force-feeding Falun Gong practitioners. In Mr. Chen's case, it caused profuse bleeding in his nose and mouth. The torturers force-fed Mr. Chen with salt water. In fact, it was so over-saturated with salt that there was still undissolved salt in the liquid. As a result, Mr. Chen's lips became dry and cracked and kept bleeding. He experienced intense stomachache and stomach burn. Mr. Chen was dying due to the torture, but he refused to give up his practice of Falun Gong. Finally, a drug addict named Gu Aimin added his urine to the IV, bound Mr. Chen to the Death Bed and administered the IV solution mixed with urine, which caused Mr. Chen to die in terrible agony.
In order to cover up their crimes, the prison guards and the involved prison inmates at Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp kept the death of Mr. Chen Jiansheng in high confidentiality. Although Mr. Chen's family traveled over 100 miles to see his body, the prison guards allowed his family only a quick glance at his face before they cremated him.
We urge the world to pay attention to Mr. Chen Jiansheng's death, help bring the culprits to justice, and prevent additional tragedies from happening to Falun Gong practitioners.
