Torture Survivor Arrested Again While Attempting to Sue the Former Chinese Dictator
(Minghui.org) On June 26, 2015, Mr. Deng and six Falun Gong practitioners were arrested when they went to the Tonghua County Post Office to mail their criminal complaints against former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin. They have been illegally detained in Tonghua City Detention Center since then.
Falun Gong Restores Health
Mr. Deng Yuqing and his wife, residents of Xinbin County, started practicing Falun Gong in January 1996. Before he found Falun Gong, Mr. Deng used to gamble, smoke and drink. He walked with a limp due to severe leg pain. However, the pain disappeared six months after he started practicing Falun Gong.
Mr. Deng became scared and stopped practicing when the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999. The pain came back and he could not walk any more. He was diagnosed with femoral necrosis in 2001. He had tried every kind of medicine, but to no avail. He thus resumed his Falun Gong practice and within six months, his health returned and he could walk again.
Tortured in a Labor Camp
In order to speak out against the persecution of Falun Gong, Mr. Deng and his wife put up banners in Yongling Village on January 30, 2008. They were arrested by officers from Yongling Police Station and illegally sentenced to one year in a forced labor camp. Mr. Deng was detained in Fushun Labor Camp, while his wife was incarcerated at the Masanjia Labor Camp in Shenyang.
Mr. Deng was brutally tortured in the labor camp for his belief. The pressure was so intense that he finally gave in. Four months later, he suffered severe headaches and was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia. The surgery and hospital fees cost him 200,000 yuan.
After returning home from the hospital, he could not walk by himself and his face was deformed. Once again, he returned to practicing Falun Gong. He gradually regained his health and the ability to walk.
