Practitioner Miao Fu of Heilongjiang Province Suffers Torture-Induced Mental Disorder

August 02, 2012 |   By a Minghui correspondent from Heilongjiang Province, China

(Minghui.org) On the morning of February 2, 2012, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Miao Fu from Dongning County, Heilongjiang Province accompanied seven families to the police department. They asked for the release of their seven Falun Dafa practitioner family members who were arrested on January 9. Mr. Miao was arrested right there, and the police proceeded to interrogate and torture him. As a result Mr. Miao has become mentally disordered.

On June 27, Mr. Miao and the other seven practitioners were put on trial in Dongning Court. Mr. Miao appeared quite confused and disoriented during the court session. He had scars and bruises on his arms and face and had difficulty standing and walking. His voice was very low and he could not remember much. He only remembered that the ex-state security captain Lin Xiaowei hit his head; someone hit his hip with white tubes made of hard plastic which caused three of the tubes to snap in half. As a result, he could not even lay down on his back and could only sleep on his stomach. The prisoners used towels with salt to rub his back and tortured him with other methods. He was once a very healthy person but now looked very dull.

Mr. Miao fell asleep during the court session. He also fell asleep before the court session while his lawyer talked to him. It is for certain that he is having a very serious mental problem. He is emaciated, and although he's just over 40 years old, he looks like an old man.

The lawyer turned in an application for medical parole to the court before the court session. However, it has been more than 10 days since the court session with no response. Mr. Miao's family members are very worried about his condition. His mother is over 80 years old and so worried that she has barely slept or eaten. Mr. Miao's younger sister saw that Mr. Miao was tortured to such an extent and she is determined to seek justice for him. The family has asked the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) to help rescue Mr. Miao.
