(Clearwisdom.net) On the evening of December 14, 2007, practitioners Ms. Liu Yanchang from Tongjiang City and Ms. Wang Yingxia from Jiamusi City, were illegally arrested by the Qinghe Township, Tongjiang City, police and severely beaten.

Shortly after, Ms. Wang's older sister and fellow practitioner Ms. Wang Yinghua went to the Tongjiang Municipal Police Department to request their release.

The following day, Yang Hua (male), the deputy director of the Tongjiang City Detention Center, mercilessly beat Ms. Wang Yingxia. Seven days later, Ms. Liu went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. Yang then incited inmate Fu Guoshan to brutally attack Ms. Liu.

On February 19, 2008, Yang pressured all the prisoners held at the detention center, saying, "If you cannot force Liu Yanchang to eat for me, don't even think about getting things from your family or smoking. You won't need to think about the better things in life."

Feeling pressured, six male inmates (Ge Changkun, Zhao Guoqing, Zhao Zhiguo, Guo Quanlei, Jia Dalin, and one other ), began beating Ms. Liu while her hands and feet were tied to a bunk bed. This cruel torture method is known as the "Big Hanging Bed."

Because she was tied up and could not relieve herself, her whole face became swollen with edema, turning purple and blue. Despite the physical pain and mental anguish Ms. Liu was suffering, Yang still jokingly said, "This is not a beating you're receiving, but a massage!"

On May 5, 2008, practitioners Ms. Wang Yinghua and her sister, Ms. Liu Yanwei, were again arrested. Four days later, Yang savagely beat them, too. In spite of the brutality they experienced at Yang's hands, they both firmly resisted the evil persecution and shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!"

Later that afternoon, Yang left the building with Ms. Wang. About three hours later, inmate Li Fulong carried an unconscious Ms. Wang back into the detention center.

Around 9:00 a.m. the following day, Ms. Wang was carried out of the detention center, her head completely covered in bandages. Nevertheless, Yang still kept her in shackles and handcuffs.

Ms. Wang was reportedly transferred from the Tongjiang City Detention Center to Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp.

Secretary Han Tao of the Tongjiang Political and Judiciary Committee, Deputy Secretary Zhao Jing, Chief of the Party Committee Mo Yapu, and Chief of the police department Guo Jilong carried out the Chinese Communist Party's policy in sparing no effort to persecute Dafa practitioners.

In the short space of a year (2007-2008), this trio of hoodlums arrested and persecuted eight practitioners: five were sentenced to prison terms, two were put in forced labor camps, and one was taken to Jiamusi Detention Center.
