Ms. Shang Shiying from Tangshan City Arrested and Tortured
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Shang Shiying is an employee of the Tangshan City Worker's Hospital in Hebei Province. On October 12, 2008, officers from the Lubei District Police Department arrested her. Dong Zhisheng, an officer from the Diaoyutai Police Station, searched Ms. Shang and took her house key. Several officers, including Dong, then went to her home and ransacked it without anyone present from her family. When Ms. Shang's husband returned home later in the day, the police returned and ransacked the home a second time.
Ms. Shang is currently being held at the Tangshan City Detention Center. She was originally detained at the Diaoyutai Police Station in Lubei District.
Ms. Shang is a medical worker who once suffered from hyperthyroidism. She had frequent fainting spells and had to be treated in the hospital. But after she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995, she regained a healthy body.
After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, the officials of the Tangshan City Worker's Hospital detained Ms. Shang six times. They tortured her by forcing her to pull grass under the blazing sun during the summer.
In October 2000, the hospital officials detained her again and sent her to the Tangshan City First Detention Center. Zhang Xin, an officer from the detention center, was in charge of her. She was held in solitary confinement, placed in shackles, forced to sit on an iron chair, and not permitted to visit the restroom. After she held a hunger strike to protest this mistreatment, she was transferred to the Ankang Hospital in Tangshan City.
In 2000, Mo Shujun was in charge of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners at Ankang Hospital. He had Ms. Shang tortured using a method called "carrying a sword on the back": she was handcuffed with one arm over her shoulder and the other behind her back. They kept her in this position for so long that the handcuffs cut into her flesh. They also shocked her with electric needles.
Ms. Shang was also injected with unknown drugs, which left her in great pain. She was disoriented and unable to move her eyes or tongue. Her strong belief in Dafa gave her the strength to endure it; otherwise, she would have suffered a mental breakdown.
Officers at the Diaoyutai Police Station have persecuted practitioners on other occasions. In April 2007, officers from this station, including Zheng Tao and Li Yang, broke into the home of Ms. Zhang Zongsu and her husband, Mr. Li Guocai. The police ransacked their home and arrested the elderly couple along with their son. (He is not a practitioner and was released later.) Ms. Zhang was sentenced to seven years in prison and Mr. Li to four years.
On the morning of July 10, 2007, officers from the Diaoyutan Police Station had Ms. Zhang Yueqin's home under surveillance. Later that day, they arrested Ms. Zhang, her husband, their son-in-law, Mr. Sun Fengli, and their daughter, Ms. He Yan. Ms. He was sentenced to forced labor and is being held at the Kaiping Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City. Other family members are being held at the Tangshan City First Detention Center.
