Mr. Han Yu Barely Able to Walk after Being Tortured in Xin'an Forced Labor Camp in Beijing
(Minghui.org) Mr. Han Yu is a Falun Gong practitioner allegedly from Hebei Province. He is about 50 years old and around 5'11” tall. Mr. Han has been placed in the intensive discipline team in Xin'an Forced Labor Camp in Beijing for refusing to renounce his faith in Falun Gong. After more than a year of torture, hunger strikes, and force-feedings, he is now barely able to walk. We implore the outside world to pay attention to his case and to rescue him from his incarceration.
Mr. Han Yu refuses to write the so-called three statements to renounce his faith in Falun Gong. On a hunger strike for more than a year, he has been subjected to force-feedings twice a day, not as a means of nourishment, but as a form of torture. He has become very skinny and frail. When the camp conducted physicals in December 2012, two men from the intensive discipline team had to hold him up, as he was unable to stand on his own. He had to lean against the wall when he was not supported. He looked as though he hardly had the strength to breathe. His situation is very worrisome.
Mr. Han was transferred to the No. 2 team, which specializes in torturing Falun Gong practitioners, after he refused to renounce his faith in Falun Gong. After he started the hunger strike, he was put in solitary confinement. He was no longer allowed to eat, drink, sleep, or use the bathroom. He has been forced to wash, urinate, and defecate in the same room. Although he has become very weak and frail, he was forced to sit on a stool for long periods of time. People who passed by his room saw him leaning forward, supporting his upper body with his hands pushing on the stool to mitigate the weight on his rear end. In addition, he was subjected to daily forced brainwashing. He has nevertheless never given in.
The camp authorities were at their wits' end, and they once transferred him to the No. 5 team before transferring him to the intensive discipline team.
These are just a fews of the tortures Mr. Han Yu has faced. It is difficult to obtain more details, but the facts will be eventually revealed. We hope that all who have read about him will try to make an effort to rescue him.
