(Clearwisdom.net) On October 12, 2007, Ren Baokun, a Falun Gong practitioner, was illegally detained by the Zhuozhou City Public Security Bureau. On October 31, he was sentenced to forced labor for one-and-a-half years by the Communist Party Labor Camp Management Committee in Baoding City.

At around 7:00 p.m. on October 12, when Mr. Ren Baokun and Mr. Liu Wen were watching a Falun Gong DVD at Ms. Xing Junhua's home, they were arrested by agents from the Zhuozhou Public Security Bureau. Later, the perpetrators detained Mr. Ren in the Zhuozhou City Police Department, where he was subjected to the iron chair torture for five days and six nights without being allowed to move.

Police officer Wang Hongen slapped Ren Baokun's face without stopping over 20 times. Mr. Ren bled from his mouth and nose. His mouth was severely injured and his ears rang as a result of the beating. Two or three days later, both his ears turned purple and black. Wang also covered his mouth with a towel so that Mr. Ren was unable to breathe or speak. Ren Baokun was tortured so badly that he shivered all over. On the evening of October 17, he was detained in Zhuozhou Detention Center. When he protested by going on a hunger strike, the police force-fed him twice.

On November 25, 2005, He Xuejian from the Zhuozhou City's Dongchengfang Area Security Office raped two female practitioners his mother's age in public. After this incident, Mr. Ren Baokun, along with practitioners from Beijing, went to the home of Ms. Liu Jizhi, one of the victims, to document the evidence so that the crimes could be exposed. After He Xuejian was put in jail, Liu Jizhi's case was still not resolved. Ms. Liu Jizhi agreed that Mr. Ren would appeal to Hebei Superior Court on behalf of her husband. Although the Superior Court accepted this case, still no decision has been handed down. Meanwhile, Ren Baokun's righteous action became an excuse for those in charge to torture him.
