Case 3. Practitioner Mr. Wang Chunde Shocked by a Ten-Thousand-Volt Electric Baton for Thirty Minutes
Mr. Wang Chunde is a practitioner from Dingzhou City in Hebei Province. He was held in the division of Sealed Management in the Baoding City Forced Labor Camp, and was brutally tortured. The guards, including Zhang Zhanqiang (male) and Liu Qingyong (male) tortured him because he and seven other practitioners, including Mr. Hu Zichun, Mr. Zhang Xiuqi and Mr. An Shilu, solemnly declared in October 2005, that the five statements they were coerced to write were null and void. On the morning of October 19, 2005, guards Zhang Zhanqiang and Liu Qingyong took advantage of the letter written against Falun Dafa by Mr. Wang Chunde's wife to worsen the torture against Mr. Wang Chunde. On the morning of October 19, they used a ten-thousand-volt electric baton to shock Mr. Wang Chunde for thirty minutes. According to eyewitnesses, Mr. Wang Chunde was very strong and did not make one sound during the entire process.
On the afternoon of October 20, practitioner Mr. Hu Zichun was pushed against the corner of a wall and shocked with an electric baton on his neck and the inner sides of his legs. On the same day, practitioner Mr. Zhang Xiuqi was shocked with an electric baton on his torso and thighs.
(1) Dead Person's Bed (http://minghui.ca/mh/articles/2004/12/5/90713.html)
The four limbs of the practitioner are stretched out and tied to the four corners of an icy-cold metal bed. The practitioner cannot move at all. Neither is he allowed to get up to eat, drink, or go to the bathroom. This treatment would last from several hours up to more than a dozen days. This type of cruel torture causes severe damage to the practitioner both mentally and physically. See illustration on
