Persecution Death Cases of Falun Gong Practitioners in Hengshui City
(Clearwisdom.net) Since the persecution began on July 20, 1999, agents from the Hengshui City 610 Office and related officials closely followed the wicked Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and head perpetrator Jiang Zemin. They have brutally persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. In the past six years, 40 Falun Gong practitioners have died as a result of persecution in various counties and districts in Hengshui City. The names and circumstances of these practitioners are written below.
Ms. An Xiukun, 49 years old, was an outstanding teacher at the Zhongxin Street Elementary School in the Taocheng District, Hengshui City. During an "illegal detention" on June 11, 2004 she was force-fed by police officers Geng Zhanwu and Cui Deru, which caused her death.
Ms. Xiao Xingai, 39 years old, was beaten and tortured by Xin Kun and Cui Deru from the Police Division at the Hengshui City Detention Center. She died from the persecution on June 15, 2001.
Mr. Yang Yun, 43 years old, lived in Hengshui City. He started practicing Falun Gong in March 1996. He suffered from lung and heart disease, as well as bronchitis and many other illnesses prior to practicing Falun Gong. He was also allergic to more than twenty types of food. Mr. Yang became very healthy after he started practicing Falun Dafa. On May 22, 2000 he went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong and was arrested. He was subsequently sent to the Lubei Administrative Custody Center in Hengshui City and later sent to the Hengshui City Detention Center. The guards tortured him and demanded to know the person who organized the appeal. On March 1, 2002, the officials from Yang Yun's place of work, Zheng Genqi and Wang Changxin, both heads of the Hengshui City Brainwashing Class, and collaborators deceived Wang Yun. They told him to report to his work unit, where they arrested him and sent him to Hebei Provincial Brainwashing Center. The persecutors at the brainwashing center extorted 10,000 yuan "tuition" from his employers. Between 8:00 a.m. and midnight, the 610 Office agents and collaborators forbade him to eat or rest. They bombarded him with Dafa-slandering materials and tried to force him to attack Dafa and Teacher. They asked him about the source of Minghui/Clearwisdom truth clarification materials and tried to deceive him into betraying Dafa and fellow practitioners. Mr. Yang firmly refused to cooperate with them. The perpetrators took turns attacking him and would not give him a break. At around midnight, Yang Yun had difficulty breathing. He had shortness of breath and his face turned blue. His whole body, including his fingernails and toenails, were black and blue, and he was sweating profusely. He soon became dehydrated and confused. Yang Yun's family went to his employers and asked for his release and strongly protested the persecution. The next afternoon, officials from Mr. Yang's work unit took him back. After Yang Yun went home he never recovered and passed away in March 2003 at the age of 43. Two days prior to his death, officers from his place of work sent people to harass and monitor him, to see if he had gone to Beijing.
Mr. Yang Zhaoxiang, 76 years old, was a retired employee from the No. 3 Hengshui City Railroad Bureau in Hebei Province. He started practicing Falun Gong after "April 25", 1999. In October 1999, officers from the Hengshui City Police Department arrested his daughter under orders from the 610 Office and sent her to the Hengshui City Detention Center. Yang Zhaoxiang was frightened and fell ill. He was hospitalized and passed away in March 2000.
Ms. Liu Guifang, 60 years old, lived in Hengshui City, Hebei Province. She was previously very weak with rheumatoid heart disease, breast cancer, and cholecystitis, among other illnesses, all of which disappeared after she started practicing Dafa in early 1998. Her health improved greatly from Dafa practice. After the persecution against Dafa began in 1999, Ms. Liu used various means to clarify the truth and validate Dafa. In early 2000, she went to Beijing to validate Dafa. The local officials threatened Liu Guifang many times at her home and tried to coerce her to give up Dafa. She passed away on October 3, 2002, due to the severe persecution.
Ms. Wang Dongmei was in her 30s when she was persecuted in a Hengshui City brainwashing class, after which she was unlawfully sent to Division 5 of the Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp. Ms. Wang was physically tortured and mentally tormented in various ways. She was tied up with a rope, shocked with electric batons, deprived of sleep and isolated for a long time. The guards exhausted all kinds of tactics but failed to destroy her will, so they sent her to a mental hospital, where she was injected with drugs. After Wang Dongmei was released on medical parole, her family saw that she was confused, and slow-moving with blunted reactions and dementia. She forgot many things. When asked why she was sent to the mental hospital, she stammered and said she didn't know. When asked what had happened to her in the hospital, she slowly answered that she was given drugs and received injections. When asked if she was forced to take drugs and injections, she answered yes. There were black and blue marks on her arm from being tied with ropes. Her husband later abandoned and divorced her. Because she was not clear-minded, she fell into a pond on March 12, 2004 and drowned. This is another death that resulted from the Jiang group's persecution.
Mr. Liu Qiusheng lived in Qingdong Village, Cuimiao Township, Fucheng County. On February 22, 2002 he was tortured to death by Kou Wentong, the deputy head of the police department, and by Zhang Zhijun, head of the Political and Security Section. Mr. Liu was 44 years old.
On February 2, 2002, Mou Dafu, Cuimiao Township Party Committee secretary, Jing Shucang from Yinghe Police Department and other officers from the police department arrested Liu Qiusheng without presenting any ID or evidence against him. The only reason for the arrest was that Liu Qiusheng practiced Falun Gong. At the police department, Kou Wentong, the deputy head, and Zhang Zhijun, the head of the Politics and Security Section, tied up Mr. Liu and beat him for more than one hour until he lost consciousness. Later, other detainees said that Liu Qiusheng was savagely beaten many times and was brutally force-fed while being tied to the death bed. In the twenty days between February 2 and February 22, Liu Qiusheng, who was healthy before the arrest, was tortured to death by Kou Wentong and other perpetrators.

In August 2002, Ms. Wang's older son was arrested again and sent to the Hengshui Brainwashing Class where he was beaten and otherwise abused. Later, he jumped out of a second floor window to escape.
