(Clearwisdom.net) On July 4, 2007, Falun Gong practitioner Li Wolong from Pingjiang County, Yueyang City, Hunan Province was sentenced to three years of imprisonment for publicly talking about the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong. He refused to do slave labor in Jin City Prison, then was tortured by over twenty people using multiple torture methods and hit with fists countless times.
On July 4, 2007, Mr Li went to Yuping township to hand out flyers that stated: "Belief is not a crime, Stop the persecution", because he was trying to rescue eighteen practitioners who had been arrested. He was himself arrested by CCP personnel Dai Wenming and Tang Huhai who were monitoring Falun Gong practitioners. The Pingjiang County 610 office and the Police Bureau sent him to the Pingjiang County Detention Center. While there he was beaten by inmates. Later he was sentenced to three years in the Hunan Province Jin City Prison by the Pingjiang Court.
Handcuffed and hung up
In the prison, Mr Li refused to do slave labor. They handcuffed him to the stair rail, and left him hanging so the cuffs would cut into his flesh. It was very painful.
Multiple Torture Methods
Between May 2009 to June 2010, guards used over twenty different inmates and multiple torture methods. They beat him when he refused to wear the prison uniform, refused to squat, did not answer when called, took a quick nap in the workshop, or did his Falun Gong exercises. They hit him with fists, and kicked and beat him using shoes, belts, electric batons and electric wires. They poked him with needles and sharpened tooth-brushes, sprayed him with hot water, pushed his head under water, and hit him with a hammer using books as a pad. They force-fed him feces, poured cold water on him in winter, and inserted a toothbrush into his anus. They beat him with a bamboo stick covered with thorns. They tied his four limbs onto a bed, then pulled his ears, twisted his flesh, and bent his fingers backwards. They did not allow him to eat or go to the restroom.
Guards told the inmates who monitored him that they should only beat him on his chest and head. This would result in internal injuries which could not be seen. They were told: "If anyone asks you, don't admit you beat him."
Those people hit him thousands of times in one year. Once his head bled so much the blood covered the floor. As a result of the constant violence, his stool was black and bloody, and he would vomit up blood. Mr Li tried talking to the leader of the guards, but they said he deserved it.
No One Taking Care of Sick Relative at Home
Li Wolong's wife, who is not a practitioner, is critically ill. She suffers from a brain tumor, cirrhosis and schizophrenia. When police took him away no one was there to take care of his wife. She attempted to commit suicide several times, and was sent to hospital for treatment.
The following people participated in the persecution and torture:
Jiang Xiaobing from Yueyang City Pingjiang County Yuping Police Station
Dai Wenming from Pingjiang County Government
Xiao Jian, Wang Hui, Yang Yu, Peng Sidong, Li Benan, Weng Xiangjian, Cai Jianghong from First Ward of Hunan Province Jin City Prison
