Crimes Committed by Zhang Daming, Domestic Security Division Head in Pinggu, Beijing
(Minghui.org) Zhang Daming is head of the Domestic Security Division of Pinggu District in Beijing. He has persecuted over 100 Falun Gong practitioners. This article lists some of the crimes he has committed.
Zhang Daming, accompanied by staff from the Pinggu Political and Legal Affairs Committee, the Binhe Police Station, and the Pinggu Detention Center, arrested Mr. Wang Zicheng and his wife Ms. Zhang Aiping on October 29, 2013, and detained them. They broke into and ransacked the couple's home, and searched the pockets of their relatives who came to the house, looking for keys. Zhang Daming tore Ms. Zhang Aiping's clothes, just as he often does whenever he arrests Falun Gong practitioners. The perpetrators also blocked relatives from seeing the couple.
Mr. Wang Zicheng's legs became paralyzed after his arrest, and he also became incontinent. He is still being detained at Pinggu Detention Center. Mr. Wang worked at the Paifeng Hotel in Pinggu, but was dismissed from his job in late 2000 for practicing Falun Gong. He was sentenced to five years in prison in 2003 for distributing Falun Gong materials, and was detained and tortured in Qianjin Prison. He was arrested again in November 2009 and sentenced to a three and a half-year prison term. His lower limbs became numb due to mistreatment, and he could not take care of himself. He was imprisoned for eight years, from 2003 to 2013, and he was not able to walk for more than two years.
Mr. Wang's wife Ms. Zhang Aiping was sentenced to a four-year term in 2003 for distributing Falun Gong materials, and was tortured in prison. During the couple's years of being persecuted, their family members, especially their young children, also suffered great pain and mental trauma. This once happy family has suffered great mental and physical torture from this cruel persecution and is now living in poverty.
Zhang Daming, along with officers from the Xingu Police Station, ransacked the home of Ms. Yang Xiaofeng's aunt in Liudian Township on July 2, 2013. They forcibly took Ms. Yang and her aunt to the police station for interrogation, and then sent them to Pinggu Detention Center.
Zhang Daming led several officers to force their way into the homes of Yang Peihua in Zhushui Village and Ma Haichun of Shuiyu Village in Jinhaihu Town on January 23, 2008. The police took their Falun Gong informational materials and took them to a brainwashing center. Ma Haichun is a handicapped practitioner. This caused great trauma to both families.
Zhang Daming also participated in a 2008 arrest of Mr. Zhao Jiandong and his wife, who work at the power supply bureau.
Zhang Daming, along with personnel from the Pinggu District Binhe Police Station, abducted the couple Lu Jianping and Mu Dongya from their home on August 6, 2006.
Zhang Daming participated in the arrest of Mao Zhenjiang, a practitioner in Yukou Township on August 3, 2006.
On June 20, 2006, Zhang Daming participated in the arrest of five practitioners in Zhangzuo Village, Jinhaihu Town.
On July 20, 2006 , Zhang Daming, Wang Xiaohua, along with Zhang Peihua, director of Yukou Township Police Station, abducted practitioners Cui Ruyi, Zhang Chunhong, Liu Guifen, Chen Youwen (deceased).
Zhang Daming and police officers from the local 610 Office broke into Ms. Li Xiaofeng's home in March 2006. They ransacked the home and sent her to a forced labor camp. This is the second time she was persecuted in a labor camp. She was sent to a labor camp for a year and half in November 2001, and was tortured there. She was little more than skin and bones when she was released, and her body was covered with bruises and scars.
In 2002 and 2005, Zhang Daming participated in the arrest of Ma Zhanquan and Tian Shurong. Both practitioners were incarcerated in a labor camp for two and half years, followed by three years in prison shortly after they were released from the labor camp. They suffered much physical and mental pain. Their family members were also often harassed and threatened. This caused tremendous physical and psychological harm to their young children and the couple's elderly parents, who live in economic hardship. During their imprisonment, the children's grandmother died and the grandfather was taken to a brainwashing center.
Zhang Daming participated in the arrest of Ms. Ji Guixia from Zhangzuo Village, Kaoshanji Township in August 2005. Ms. Ji had suffered from epilepsy for many years until her illness was cured by practicing Falun Gong.
In 2001, Zhang Daming participated in the arrest of Ms. Zhang Zhiyun and her husband Mr. Wang Jianfu, from Xigao Village, Donggaocun Town. Ms. Zhang was imprisoned in a labor camp for a year and a half. It deeply affected her and she was disoriented for some time. Mr. Wang Jianfu was tortured by police and sentenced to seven years in prison. Deprived of her parents and their house, their daughter went through a lot of hardship during that period of time.
Zhang Daming has been involved since 2001 in the repeated persecution of Ms. Gong Ruiping, an excellent teacher from Pinggu County.
