(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Yang Wenqiang is from Huangzhai Town, Shangshui County, Henan Province. Due to financial difficulties in paying for his child's tuition, he went to Haicheng City, Liaoning Province, to make a living as a professional recycler. He lived in Daiqian Village, Wangshi Town, Haicheng City. On May 16, 2006, Mr. Yang went to Nantai Market to do his job. While clarifying the truth of the persecution of Falun Dafa in front of a school, he was reported by a teacher at the school. He was arrested by officers Li Qingzhu and Wang Zhiping from the Wangshi Police Station. After a 15-day detention, Mr. Yang was taken to Anshan Forced Labor Camp.
While he was in the detention center, the guards ordered other inmates to beat Mr. Yang and burn him with cigarettes. At the Anshan Forced Labor Camp, Mr. Yang was subjected to more inhumane torture. His family was notified to take him home around August 6, 2006, when he was on the verge of death after the labor camp medical personnel discovered he had blood clots from the torture.
When Mr. Yang's family members saw him, they noticed that from his hips to his ankles he was bruised to a black-purple color. He couldn't straighten up. He was hunchbacked and could barely walk. He could no longer recognize family members, and he had developed serious mental problems. The labor camp's Captain Ping extorted 600 yuan from the family, claiming it was a "transportation fee."
Afterwards, Mr. Yang had pains throughout his body every day and his mental state was unstable. Three months of treatment in a hospital did not improve his condition. When he was clear-minded, he said that Captain Ping took him to a place far away. He wasn't allowed to sleep, an object with sharp spikes was pulled across his skin, and he was beaten with wooden boards, leather belts, and a triangular belt with a lump on top. The guards told him that they were checking to see if he was sick and injected needles into him. A guard called Wang Yang beat him every day. On December 11, 2006, a mentally disordered Mr. Yang hanged himself.
Anshan Forced Labor Camp tortured many people to death
Anshan Forced Labor Camp tortured many practitioners to disability and death. Some became mentally disordered from the torture.
Ms. Kou Xiaoping was a 40-year-old practitioner from Anshan City. In February 2001, she was arrested and taken to Anshan Forced Labor Camp. She was imprisoned in the strict-control ward and tortured physically and mentally. Even when she went to the bathroom, there would be people following and monitoring her. In February 2002, after over a year in the labor camp, she went on a hunger strike to resist the persecution. She was force-fed and developed sickness symptoms. She passed away in a matter of days.
Mr. Zhao Yulong, about 30, from Haicheng City was arrested and taken to Anshan Forced Labor Camp in 2000 after he clarified the truth about Falun Gong during his appeal. He became mentally unstable from the torture in the labor camp.
Ganwang Town practitioner Mr. Zhou Huisheng was tortured in Anshan Forced Labor Camp and had a cerebral hemorrhage. The labor camp authorities were afraid of being held responsible and released him. After Mr. Zhou's family members placed him in a hospital, the police continued to harass and threaten him. Mr. Zhou passed away in August 2006.
