(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Deng Huaiying died at the “999 Emergency Center” after suffering torture at the Haidian District Detention Center in Beijing. This news reminded me of the persecution of practitioners at the “999 Emergency Center” that I witnessed.

It was year 2009. There was a hidden, enclosed four-floor building behind the “999 Emergency Center” in the Changping District. Many Falun Gong practitioners from various detention centers in Beijing had been sent there because they either went on a hunger strike to protest the torture or failed the physical examination.

Practitioners were first forced to have their blood drawn into four large glass tubes. This was carried out by a woman in a white coat. No practitioner was spared.

Some practitioners were then detained on the fourth floor. A female guard named Wan, who was in her 40s, was in charge of the floor. The police called her “instructor Wan.”


Torture re-enactment: Handcuffed to a bed

Upon seeing Ms. Cai Jinxiang from Huairou practicing the Falun Gong exercises, Wan handcuffed her to a bed with three-ring cuffs. Ms. Cai's hands were raised and fixed to the opposite sides of one end of a bed, and her feet were fixed to the other end. She was left in this painful position continuously for several days. She was unable to eat, drink or use the toilet; she was soaked in urine.

Wan held a cup of water and said to Ms. Cai, “If you say that you will no longer practice Falun Gong, I will let you drink water.”

Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Xiao Yao from Daxing refused to register and didn’t cooperate with the guards. Wan shouted, “Infuse her with the solution!”

Someone came in with a big bottle of pink liquid and was about to forcibly inject this substance into Ms. Xiao. She said, “If you dare to do this to me, I will see you in court.”

Angrily, Wan then called the Daxing Detention Center and told them to come and get Ms. Xiao. She was transferred there that night.

Another practitioner shouted daily with her remaining strength: “Take off my handcuff! Take off my chain! It’s not wrong to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance [the main principles of Falun Gong]!”

The above is the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners that I witnessed at the “999 Emergency Center.” Thus, it is not surprising that Mr. Deng Huaiying, who had earned a master's degree in economics, was tortured to death there under the pretense of “treatment.”
