Ms. Pan Xiuming Brutally Tortured at Nanling Police Station in Changchun, Jilin Province
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 16, 2008, Ms. Pan Xiuming, a 59-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Changchun City, Jilin Province, was arrested by the Changchun Nanling police.She was distributing truth-clarification materials.
At the police station, she was tortured by Officer Dong, who is about 40 years old. He slapped her in the face until her mouth bled. He punched her in the chest and arms until her arms were black and blue, shoved her, and dragged her by her hair. He also struck her on the head using a copy of the book "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party." The attack was so vicious that she had suffered from vertigo, nausea, and vomiting. Another policeman handcuffed her behind her back and pulled the cuffs upward until she almost fainted. He then used pens to stab under her fingernails until her fingers were bruised and swollen and stomped on her feet with his boots. During the torture, Dong shouted his questions at her, "Where did the materials come from? Where did the other person go? " Despite the torture, Ms. Pan replied. "I cannot tell you."
Due to the intensity of the torture, Ms. Pan's blood pressure rose to 105/190. Even then, the Nanling police still tried to transfer her to the No. 3 Detention Center in Changchun for further persecution. She ended up at Weizigou Forced Labour Camp in Changchun.
Ms. Pan Xiuming was eventually released on October 29, 2008.
