Torture Methods: Assaulting the Senses of Smell and Taste (Part 4 of 5) (Graphic Images)
(Minghui.org) Editor's note: Many Falun Gong practitioners released from the Chinese Communist Party's detention centers, prisons, or police stations have recalled being tortured in an astounding variety of brutal ways. This report, the fourth in our new five-part series on torture, describes how officials use human excrement and urine and other foul-smelling and irritating substances to torture Falun Gong practitioners.
Inmates at the Huairou Detention Center in Beijing tortured a Falun Gong practitioner who refused to give his name and address to the officers. They tied his feet with a rope and hung him upside down from a beam, then set a pot of boiling water with hot peppers in it under his head.
A female practitioner, in her 50s, was detained in the Nanyuan Residential Area in Weifang City, Shandong Province, for appealing in Beijing for the right to practice Falun Gong. Because she refused to give up the practice, they smeared her with human excrement and urine.
In an attempt to force practitioners to renounce their belief in Falun Gong, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) pawns force-feed practitioners with rancid substances, smear feces on their faces and in their mouths, pour feces over them, or make them soak in it. They push practitioners' heads into latrines, spray them with toxic liquid, and hold them in pigsties or other filthy settings.
Besides feces, hot pepper water and hot mustard water, phlegm, used sanitary napkins, acid, ammonia, pesticides, insecticides, tear gas, and fire extinguishers have also used to torture practitioners.
1. Ms. Yang Hailing Died after Being Force-fed Hot Mustard Water
Ms. Yang Hailing was arrested in March 2002 for producing Falun Gong informational materials. She was detained at the No. 1 Detention Center in Mishan City, Heilongjiang Province. The perpetrators handcuffed her arms behind her back while interrogating her. The police poured hot mustard water into her mouth, and some of it went into her lungs. Ms. Yang coughed constantly. She died on April 12, 2003, at the age of 34, reportedly of a heart attack. Her body was quickly cremated that night, without her family's consent.
2. Hot Mustard Water Poured into the Nose
In the Chengying District of Jilin City the police poured eight bottles of hot mustard water into Mr. Wang Liqiu's nose, causing him to pass out several times. Officer Di Shigang revived him with cold water and continued to torture him. Mr. Wang suffered a heart attack and almost died.
Mr. Liu Yuhe, in his 30s, was a practitioner in Jilin City. He was arrested on June 22, 2005, in Huadian City and was tortured during interrogation by police from the 610 Office and Domestic Security Division.
Mr. Liu was brutally beaten, then tied to a chair, his head pulled backward and his mouth covered with a towel. The officers poured hot mustard water into his nose. He couldn't breathe and vomited uncontrollably.
3. A Middle School Teacher Force-fed Feces, Becomes Mentally Disordered
Mr. Liu Ze, in his 40s, was a middle school teacher. Because he practiced Falun Gong, he was taken to the Zhongba Men's Forced Labor Camp in Guizhou Province. He was deprived of sleep for more than 20 days, beaten, and verbally abused. The perpetrators slammed his head against the wall, resulting in swelling and bruises. They forced him to eat feces. In the end he became mentally disordered and began to eat the feces
4. Doctor: “Feeding Feces Could Result in Coma”
In Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp, six female practitioners were beaten for more than 60 hours, but they still refused to renounce Falun Gong. The guards force-fed them feces for two days. All six ran a high fever and had diarrhea. They were taken to a hospital.
After learning what had happened, the doctor raged against the guards: “Feeding them feces could result in a coma.”
5. Mr. Du Jingguang Had Feces Poured into His Mouth and Nostrils
At a brainwashing session in Shuangkou Forced Labor Camp in Tianjing City, the guards tortured Mr. Du Jingguang for more than three hours. They shocked him with electric batons and poured cold water over him.
Guard Du Yingxin tied Mr. Du to a chair and ordered the inmates to pour feces into his mouth and nostrils. Guard Fu Zhensi injected hot mustard water into his nostrils. He was tortured for more than 20 days.
6. Mr. Wang Nanfang Had Cigarette Smoke Blown in His Face
The guards lit three cigarettes and put them under Mr. Wang Nanfang's nose. Deciding that this was not torture enough, they made a funnel with a newspaper, put the smaller end of the paper against Mr. Wang's nostrils and lit the bigger end. Mr. Wang fainted from smoke inhalation. The guards poured cold water over his head to revive him. He suffered extreme chest pain and coughed up blood and phlegm. He could barely breath.
7. Spraying Tear Gas in the Face
Mr. Liao Banggui, 66, is a practitioner from Suining City, Sichuan Province. He was arrested in April 2011 for clarifying the truth. He was taken to Wumaping Prison in Leshan City. Because he did the Falun Gong exercises, the inmates dragged him into a small cell. Several of them held him down, while others sprayed tear gas in his eyes and nose. The pain was excruciating and he couldn't open his eyes.
