Suzhou Prison Guards Use Boiling Water to Burn and Cripple Hu WenKui

April 15, 2006 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) In January 2005, the staff of the First Jail Area of the Suzhou Prison in Anhui Province brutally persecuted Mr. Hu WenKui, a Falun Dafa practitioner. He had burns on his body and on his feet. He is now permanently disabled.

From 6:00 p.m. January 5, 2005 to 4:00 p.m. on January 6, 2005, the prison warden, Lu Yang, of the First Jail Area Propaganda Room, and group supervisor Yu Weizhou, had the windows opened widely in 10ºC below zero (14ºF) weather, and had the electric fan turned on.

They tortured Mr. Hu Wenkui by kicking and punching him, and striking him with their elbows. They tied one of his hands to a window and tied his other hand to a rope. They then had several people pull on the rope, causing his body to be hung in the air. They struck him in the chest and on the back. They had several prisoners push him against a wall. They also sat on him. Several others pulled his legs apart as far as they could and punched his genitals. They did this repeatedly. Thus, Mr. Hu Wenkui was not able to move his legs or walk for several months. They also shocked his genitals and other places with an electric baton for more than thirty minutes. His body was covered with burns and blisters.

Lu Yang stomped on Mr. Hu Wenkui's feet over and over, causing swelling so severe that he could not fit in his shoes. During this torture, Mr. Hu fainted three times. They then used hot-water bags filled with boiling water to burn his left leg, causing deep, third degree burns, and the connective tissue around his bones died from the heat. His left leg is crippled. On his right leg, they gave him second-degree burns and did severe damage to the blood vessels. He has not recovered from this torture after over a year.
