Female Falun Dafa Practitioner Sexually Assaulted in Police Custody in Taiyuan City
(Clearwisdom.net) In June, 2008, at around 3 a.m., 56-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhao Xiuyun from Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province, was distributing informational materials and was illegally arrested by policemen from the Xiaodian District Police Station. During her detention, policemen incited a group of derelicts to attempt to rape her. She struggled to defend herself and shouted loudly, attracting the attention of nearby people. This caused her assailants to back off.
Ms. Zhao reported this attempted rape to the Xiaodian District Police Station. Ms. Zhao's elder brother also complained about the detestable treatment she had received when he visited her in detention.
On the morning of April 26th, 2009, Ms. Li Hong, also from Taiyuan City, was arrested and sent to a forced labor camp by police from the Yingpan police station in the Xiaodian District, Taiyuan City. She is now detained in the Xindian Forced Labor Camp in Taiyuan City and continues to be persecuted there.
