The 610 Office and National Security Team Cruelly Persecute Practitioners in Sheyang County, Jiangsu Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Police officers from the 610 Office in Sheyang County of Jiangsu Province, the National Security Team, and the Xingqiao and Yangma Township Police Stations have committed serious crimes in following orders from the Jiang Zemin regime to persecute Falun Dafa and its practitioners. They illegally ransacked practitioners' homes, burned their Dafa books, and implemented forced brainwashing sessions. They went to practitioners' homes to harass and terrorize them, illegally arrested practitioners and sent them to forced labor camps for detention, and illegally sentenced them to prison.
In early Spring of 2000, police officers from the Yangma Township Police Station went to practitioner Mr. Tang Xuebin's home to terrorize him because he insisted on practicing Falun Gong. They arrested him and detained him in the Sheyang Township Mental Hospital. (Initially they tried to send him to Yancheng Mental Hospital, but a doctor there wouldn't admit him and refused to issue a diagnostic certificate saying that he was ill.) At Sheyang Mental Hospital, he was subjected to electric shock treatments and was injected with drugs that damaged his nervous system. People from the mental hospital blackmailed Tang's family for nearly 2000 yuan as a "medication charge."
Over the past six years, police officers from the 610 Office and the National Security Team have arrested over 10 practitioners for clarifying the truth and exposing the persecution. They sent practitioners to forced labor camp and to jail. While they were detained, the practitioners were cruelly tortured. They were handcuffed and hung up, beaten, and deprived of sleep day and night. In the winter, practitioners were not allowed to wear clothes, and the National Security Team transferred "killers" (very cruel and violent people who cause pain but leave the body intact) in from the Criminal Police Force to specifically deal with practitioners.
In the fall of 2004, police officers took turns beating practitioners Ji Guowei and An Zixia, a couple from Wanlong Village, for nearly 100 hours in a padded room in the Xingqiao Township Police Station. After that, they sent Ji Guowei to Fangqiang Forced Labor Camp in Dafeng. At Sheyang County Forced Labor Camp, police guards Dong and Du handcuffed practitioners together. The practitioners had to bend at their waists in order to move, so they couldn't rest or use the bathroom. The police either beat the practitioners or instigated inmates to do it. They shoved practitioners who were on hunger strike to the ground and pressed them down onto the concrete. They covered practitioners' mouths and noses with dirty rags until the practitioners almost lost consciousness. The inmates forced open the practitioners' jaws with screwdrivers and wrenches in order to force-feed them with diluted congee. This kind of cruel torture happens every day.
Practitioner Mr. Tang Xuebin suffered from this kind of torture for 20 consecutive days, and then he was sentenced to 10 years. After practitioner Mr. Li Rongsheng was detained for 11 months at Sheyang County Detention Center, his legs became numb and he couldn't walk or stand normally. Even so, he was illegally sentenced to nine years of imprisonment after that. His wife couldn't take the pressure anymore and married someone else. Even with her relatives' help, his daughter almost couldn't afford to go to school. There are a lot of cases of families being ruined this way in Sheyang Town. Even in 2005, police officers from the 610 Office in Sheyang County arrested four practitioners and sent them to the forced labor camp. Among them, Bai Ruixia and Fei Daiyu from Xingqiao Town are already over 60 years old.
