High School Teacher Sues Jiang Zemin for Mental and Physical Torture
(Minghui.org) Ms. Ou-yang Rurun, a high school teacher, filed her complaint against former dictator Jiang Zemin on May 30, 2015, for initiating the persecution of Falun Gong, which resulted in her unlawful arrest, imprisonment, and mental and physical torture over the past 16 years. She asked the judge to investigate and bring Jiang Zemin to justice.
Below is a transcript of her complaint.
Injected with Nerve-Damaging Drugs
I was stopped at the Hankou Train Station on my way to Beijing in July 2000 to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. I was taken to the Wuhan City Mental Hospital the following day.
There, I was tied to a bed and injected with psychiatric drugs that damage the central nervous system. After being given the injection, I started to drool, my hands started to shake, my tongue became stiff, and I lost my balance when I walked.
They also examined my heart, liver, kidneys, blood, and stool, which reminded me of the crimes of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Doctors in the mental hospital later assigned two “specialists” to talk to me. After the discussion, they suggested that I had a paranoid psychosis.
Photos of Me Taken Against My Will
I had to leave home in March 2001 to avoid further persecution. Unfortunately, our telephone had been tapped, and other practitioners and I were arrested. In the violence that occurred during our arrest, I sustained a head injury and broken bones.
I was held in the hospital for three months. Because I refused to allow them to take my photo, six strong men grabbed my hair, held my limbs, and photographed me against my will.
Torture and Forced Labor
I was arrested again in May 2002, when my mobile phone was tapped. During the interrogation at the police station, I was handcuffed to a metal fence. The police tightened the handcuffs so that they cut into my wrists.
They also poured water up my nose. I was pushed against the wall and slapped in the face repeatedly.
I was transferred to Wuhan First Detention Center the next day. Some of the inmates cried when they saw how swollen and bruised my face was.
I was forced to do hard labor most of the time. Some days we had to work for over 21 hours, while the inmates who worked for the guards bullied us.
Brain Atrophy and Stroke Symptoms
As a result of being persecuted my blood pressure became very high. The detention center authorities didn't want to be held responsible if anything happened to me, so they got the 610 Office to move me to the brainwashing center in April 2003. I needed oxygen and IVs every day of the week while I was in the brainwashing center.
I was transferred to a local hospital when my condition worsened. Two people were assigned to monitor me around the clock. I was diagnosed with brain atrophy, stroke symptoms, and problems with my liver, heart, lungs, and kidneys. To avoid taking responsibility if I died, the police notified my family to pick me up. By then I had lost half of my original weight.
In July 1999, former dictator Jiang Zemin initiated the persecution of Falun Gong. Since then millions of Falun Gong practitioners have been arrested, tortured, and even had their organs harvested for profit.
According to the Minghui website, several thousand practitioners have been confirmed to have been tortured to death so far.
Over the past few weeks, more than 60,000 people have filed lawsuits against Jiang Zemin.
