Fushun Police Ruthlessly Torture Mr. Sun Hongchang
(Clearwisdom.net) At about 5:00 p.m. on March 28, 2006, as Mr. Sun Hongchang worked in the Xinlong Community in Qingyuan County, eight officers from Fushun Police Department's Domestic Security Division arrived and arrested him, then detained him at the Qingyuan Town Police Station.
That night, six agents from the Fushun Domestic Security Division brutally tortured Mr. Sun. Those involved included Guan Yong, Hao Jianxiu, and Zhao Dazhuang. The person chiefly responsible was Guan Yong.
At about 11:00 p.m. on March 28, one person used electric batons to shock Mr. Sun's genitals after Guan Yong and other policemen had beaten Mr. Sun for an hour. They then pummeled Mr. Sun's penis with their fists. They also used both hands to force one of Mr. Sun's legs above his head, a torture method called "splitting hip." (Fushun Domestic Security Division people are also using this cruel tactic. Victims subjected to such extreme physical agony can easily become handicapped.) To carry out this torture, four to five policemen took two wooden sticks and wrapped them tightly with wide tape to Mr. Sun's legs, preventing him from bending them. They then immobilized his right leg on the bed. They used both hands to force Mr. Sun's left leg over his head. Each time the abuse lasted one or two hours. It was so painful that Mr. Sun fainted many times. Residents near the police station could hear Mr. Sun's agonized painful screams. They continued until 5:00 a.m. the next morning.
When they were torturing Mr. Sun, the officers yelled, "We simply have no human nature. We have beaten your wife to death. If you die here, it is just another 2000 yuan." Wang Xiuxia, Mr. Sun Hongchang's wife, died as a result of abuse under persecution on June 15, 2003, in the Fushun First Detention Center, at the hands of people from the Domestic Security Division.
On the evening of March 30, police again beat Mr. Sun and "split his hip" and kicked his left foot hard. While they tortured him, they asked him if it hurt. Mr. Sun's left leg swelled badly and became black and purple. It was injured to the point that he could not stand or walk. Mr. Sun became bedridden and he could not take care of himself.
On March 31, police officers carried Mr. Sun to the Dashagou Detention Center in Qingyuan County and detained him there. Ever since, Mr. Sun's left leg has been handicapped. While at the detention center, the pain kept him bedridden for more than one month. Detention center officials took Mr. Sun to the Qingyuan County Central Hospital for an examination. The diagnosis was nerve damage. On May 25, an examination at the Fushun City Central Hospital showed injury of the common peroneal nerve. On June 12, Shenyang Medical University Hospital examined him and found injury to the left sciatic nerve. After some time Mr. Sun's left leg and foot showed significant atrophy and became thinner than his right leg, with the left toes curved.
Although Guan Yong and other police at the Fushun Domestic Security Division had beaten Mr. Sun so severely that he became disabled, they took no responsibility. Instead, on September 18, 2006, Qingyuan County Court sentenced Mr. Sun to five years of imprisonment. The prison refused his admission because of poor health, but he was not granted release for medical reasons.
Mr. Sun's elderly parents went to the Fushun Procuratorate and to the Qingyuan County Police Department, requesting their son's release for medical reasons. Xu Jinrong with the Qingyuan County Police Department made up excuses for not releasing him. Zheng Zhiwen from the Qingyuan Police Department examined Mr. Sun for medical release. However, Guan Yong was afraid of his brutality being exposed, so he did everything in his power to stop Qingyuan Police officials from releasing Mr. Sun. Mr. Sun is still incarcerated at the Dashagou Detention Center in Qingyuan County.
