Elderly Lady, Previously Handicapped due to Abuse, Again Arrested and Tortured
Name: Jiang Hailan (姜海岚)
Date of Most Recent Arrest: September 15, 2009
Most Recent Place of Detention: Jinzhou First Detention Center (锦州第一看守所)
Persecution Suffered: Imprisonment, home ransacked, extortion, force-feedings
(Clearwisdom.net) (By a correspondent in Liaoning Province) At about 9:00 a.m. on September 15, 2009, the Heishan County Domestic Security Division dispatched the entire team to arrest Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Jiang Hailan. Ms. Jiang had been persecuted since November 2002 and had become handicapped as a result.
The team pretended they were utility company technicians. After first disconnecting the power inside the building, they deceived Ms. Jiang into opening the door, using the excuse of inspecting her utility line. They spent nearly three hours ransacking the home. So far, it has been found that the articles taken away include a laptop computer, a desktop computer, cash totaling 4,000 yuan, and a savings account certificate for 10,000 yuan. Items kept in the storage room downstairs were all taken away, and Ms. Jiang was arrested.
At about 7:00 p.m. that evening, Wang Weijing, an officer from the Domestic Security Division, told Ms. Jiang, "Give me 100,000 yuan and write a statement [giving up practicing Falun Gong], and I will let you go home." Ms. Jiang said, "I do not have so much money." Wang said, "How about 50,000? If you pay the money, I will let you go."
Ms. Jiang said, "I did nothing wrong, why do I have to pay a fine?" Wang was furious, "All right. If you are willing to suffer, I will send you [to the detention center]."
Ms. Jiang started a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention, but the guards ignored her. On the morning of September 17, they sent her to the Jinzhou First Detention Center when she was still on the hunger strike. At the detention center, she continued the hunger strike to protest the persecution. On the 11th day of her hunger strike, four guards at the detention center pressed her down and inserted a thick tube through her nostrils to force-feed her. It was very painful for her. In addition, she was charged 100 yuan for each force-feeding.
The food at the Jinzhou First Detention Center was very poor. Every day, only a small amount of cornbread and cabbage soup was provided. The soup contained only cabbage and water. A layer of insects were floating on the surface and sand sat at the bottom. Detainees were allowed to order meals, but it cost them about 30 yuan for three meals during the day.
In November 2002, Heishan County police persecuted Ms. Jiang until she was handicapped. As a result, she completely lost her ability to work and lived a difficult life. Ms. Jiang could not even afford to buy food.
Right now, the Heishan County police and Procuratorate have approved the arrest of Ms. Jiang and have prepared to charge and sentence her.
