( Mr. Li Zhengbing, a Falun Gong practitioner, was arrested in March, 2008 by police officer Zhang Xingtao of the Public Security Bureau of Chishui City and Chen Sen from the Cangxi Police Station. Then Mr. Li was illegally sentenced to two years of imprisonment. In Duyun prison, Mr. Li was physically and mentally abused and tortured. Mr. Li has changed significantly from a healthy, energetic person into a white-haired, emaciated man with a swollen face.

Mr. Li was locked in an underground cell, which is small, dark, damp and without any sunlight. Some inmates were instigated into supervising and persecuting Mr. Li and other practitioners. The practitioners were pressured to write guarantee statements to give up their belief, or they would not be allowed to leave the underground rooms.

Mr. Li Zhengbing was forced to work four to five hours every day like a slave. The work environment was extremely harsh. Mr. Li and others had to make colorful lanterns, lighters, flints, etc. and they could not rest until their quotas were filled. Sometimes the practitioners were forced to watch videos that slandered Falun Gong. All detained Falun Gong practitioners have been subjected to similar physical and mental tortures.
