[Editor's note: After the original Chinese article was published, it was reported to Minghui that Mr. Liu is now doing alright at home.]

Greetings to members of the "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" who are coming to China to begin a complete investigation of the persecution of Falun Gong!

I want to provide the "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" with information about the Public Security Bureau and the hospital conspiring to kill a Falun Gong practitioner. I also want the coalition to help look for fellow practitioner Mr. Liu.

The Public Security Bureau in Zhucheng Committed Murder

During spring of 2004, I heard news of the Public Security Bureau conspiring with the local hospital to kill a Falun Gong practitioner. Through many obstacles, I was able to meet the eyewitness. This is what the eyewitness described.

In May or June 2001, one morning at around 9:00 a.m., the eyewitness was working in the field. There were a series of cars that drove from the city. One belonged to the Public Security Bureau, one was an ambulance and the last car was either a "110" security car or a car from the courthouse. They drove towards the southeast of town to Chenjiahuayuan west of the village. They turned west on a narrow dirt road. They stopped at a shallow ditch, where a person lifted a body out of the ambulance and left it lying on the hill. They did not dig a hole but began to scoop dirt from the slope. They were in such a hurry, they only buried half of the body so that the part below the knee was all exposed. The body had on a pair of men's leather shoes.

Many villagers came to watch, and one elderly villager asked the person from the ambulance, "Who are you burying?" The person was cold and detached, "A Falun Gong practitioner!"

They left in a hurry also. Many villagers were very upset. The village administrators went to the Public Security Bureau and demanded that they remove the body. They stated that many villagers were very scared and were refusing to go work in the fields. The villagers said that they would return the body to the front door of the Bureau if they did not remove it. Three to five days later, when the eyewitness went back to work in the field, the body had disappeared. He did not know when that had happened.

Mr. Liu from Jiaozhou was Missing

Mr. Liu was from Jiaozhou, Shandong Province. His family of five all practiced Falun Dafa. In January 2001, after he went to Beijing many times to appeal for Falun Gong and was persecuted to the brink of death. Mr. Liu left home and became homeless. His body became severely deformed by the brutal torture. He was illegally arrested again in May 2001. When the police found out through the Internet that the Public Security Bureau had promulgated an order for the arrest of Mr. Liu, the police intensified the torture. He was tortured until he passed out many times the very day he was arrested. Each time he passed out, the police woke him up with cold water and continued the torture. Mr. Liu was carried out that night from the Public Security Grand Hotel on the second floor. There has not been any news of him since.

Mr. Liu was forty-five years old in 2001 and he was about 1.65 meters (5 ft. 5 in.) in height. One young female Falun Dafa practitioner who used to study and do the exercises at his house stated that Mr. Liu and his wife had two sons and one daughter. All five of them practiced Falun Gong. When the police first arrested the couple, they were held in different locations. The elder son was in a boarding high school, the younger son was in a boarding middle school and the daughter, who was less than ten years old, was the only one left at home. The police forced their relatives to bring food on a daily basis. Several days later, the relatives were deceived by the Party. They then refused to allow the food because the couple refused to write a guarantee statement. With no choice, the little girl took on the responsibility of begging for food to bring to her parents. In order to make sure that her parents were able to eat, the little girl ran from her grandparents, uncle, aunt, cousin, neighbors and her parents' work unit around the clock. When she went to beg for food, no matter how they blamed her parents, how they cursed at her parents, she kept silent as long as they would give her the food. As time went on, some people not only would not give her food but also told her to stop delivering food to her parents. Some of them even shut the door and refused to let her in. The little girl had no choice but to sit in front of the door and cry. She didn't stop crying until they gave her the food. One month later, the relatives gathered enough money (about 10000 yuan) to pay the couple's bail.

After they came out, they went to Beijing to appeal again. After they were sent back the first time, the couple and their son were held in different places. The little girl had to take on the responsibility of begging and delivering food to her parents and her brother. Their elder son was forced to leave school, and he went to a different city to work in order to make a living. After they were sent back the second time, the police emptied their house and did not even leave one set of bedding for the little girl. The couple was released on the brink of death. After Mr. Liu went to Beijing the last time, the police in Beijing beat him unconscious. The Jiaozhou police sent Mr. Liu, who was dying, back to his family. Due to his firm belief in Falun Dafa and Teacher, he escaped death. When he recovered to the point of becoming independent, the police began their harassment again, and Mr. Liu was forced to leave home. His body had become deformed from the persecution. We met in January 2001. He had severe kyphosis (a condition of having one's back severely bent). Both his legs were deformed and his left leg was worse than the right one.

In May 2001, Mr. Liu was arrested in Zhucheng City, Shandong Province. The perpetrators were Zhu Pengde (head of the 610 Office), Cao Jinhui (Political Security deputy director), and Zhu Wei, Yuan Wei, Wang Jun, Lu Jun and Mao Yulong (the hired thugs). Since they could not force any information from Mr. Liu, they went on the Internet. They found that the Public Security Bureau had issued an order for the arrest of Mr. Liu, so they intensified the torture. They were inside the Public Security Grand Hotel, a place where all the police eat, drink, gamble and engage in prostitution. The hotel has been exposed many times on the Minghui.net website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net) and it has changed names numerous times. It is now called the "Judetiantianjugang Jiujia-Dongsheng Dajiudian, the fifth subhotel." The previous front door on the northeast side is sealed, and there is a gas station outside.

I was arrested the same day as Mr. Liu. Cao Jinhui tortured me, saying, "I know your situation, I do not care if you do not speak. Your so-called Mr. Liu was unconscious many times today already, and each time he was awakened with cold water. He finally gave us your name." I trusted Mr. Liu and disdained this thug's lie. After I woke up from the torture, a 110 female dispatcher (calling 110 is similar to calling 911 in the U.S.) who was guarding me said, "A guy called Mr. Liu lost consciousness many times today. He was carried out. Aunty, I really don't want to see you..." Before she could finish her sentence, Cao Jinhui, Wang Jun, Yuan Wei and Zhu Pengde came back. Zhu ordered the girl to find some clothes for me to wear, and asked the others to bring me food. Since I refused to cooperate, he began showing his true colors and yelled at me, "Do not get carried away. Mr. Liu from Jiaozhou is much tougher than you are. After being close to death several times, he knew what that felt like. He still gave us your name. I will give you ten more minutes. If you still refuse to tell us, then don't blame us for being rough." They brought in a fellow practitioner, Xiao Zhang, who was arrested the same day in an attempt to have him persuade me. As soon as Xiao Zhang saw me covered with blood, he began to cry. The police took him away right away, cursing along the way.

After a while, Xiao Zhang came back. He was much calmer this time. From what he said and his expression, I guess he could not handle the torture. He gave out my name and Mr. Liu. I did not remember whether I was in the Public Security Grand Hotel or not. The 110 female dispatcher told me that when the police arrested me, they sealed my eyes and mouth with tape and dragged me to the second floor. I was tortured for days and had passed out numerous times. The police grabbed my hair and hit my head against the wall, and slapped my face left and right. They had kicked and severely beat the inside of my legs. After they handcuffed my hands and shackled my legs, they used the electric baton to shock my hands and feet, shock the inside of my mouth, and shock my ears, neck and knees. I was tied to an iron chair and not allowed to use the restroom. I was deprived of sleep, and they slapped my face whenever I fell asleep. Wang Jun, the thug I mentioned above who was about age 30 in 2001, said that he did not have the patience to serve me, as his wife was just about to give birth. I did not know whether he was moved from Xiangzhou Town Police Station or Shijiaozi Town Police Station. He used a nail to pierce my ankle and pressed it down forcefully with his shoes. My feet were so swollen that I could not wear shoes even when I was sent to Wangchun Labor Camp on June 11.

My hearing has not recovered as of today. I cannot hear anything if I go to a noisy area. All my teeth are loose, so I can only eat soft food. The inside of my left leg muscle has turned into hardened mass and is still black blue without sensation. When I was released in 2003, there was still a large hardened mass inside my left leg.

At the labor camp, they interrogated me many times. Mao Yulong mentioned Mr. Liu again. He said, "Mr. Liu betrayed you after he was tortured, why are you still covering for him?" They mentioned Mr. Liu so many times. I am really concerned for his life. I never went to Jiaozhou and have not connected with any fellow practitioners there. I want to use the Minghui/Clearwisdom website to look for Mr. Liu.
