(Minghui.org) A Jilin City, Jilin Province, woman was held in a secret detention facility and sexually assaulted by a torture expert from the Jilin Province Public Security Bureau after she was arrested on June 12, 2022, for her faith in Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Jiang Yongqin

Ms. Jiang Yongqin, 53, of Jilin City, Jilin Province, was a former lecturer at Zhejiang Sci-Tech University. A group of officers broke into her home at 7: 30 a.m. on June 12 and arrested her. Her cell phone and computer were confiscated. Her family members were also seized by the police and briefly detained at the police station.

Ms. Jiang was first held at the Xin’an Police Station. She was transferred to a hotel on the second day and monitored by the police around the clock. She was interrogated twice during the time. 

On the afternoon of July 7 (or July 8), the police covered Ms. Jiang’s head with a black hood, plugged her ears, and took her to a secret facility. 

Four men were present, including a torture expert from the Jilin Province Public Security Bureau, his assistant Li, and two men, surnamed Tang and Lyu, of Jilin City Domestic Security Office.

The four people handcuffed Ms. Jiang and demanded to know the password to her hard drive. She refused to answer. The police then force-fed wasabi water into her nose and inserted lit cigarettes into her nose. As they were inserting the cigarette, it broke. The police left half of the cigarette in her nasal cavity, which she eventually coughed out.

After the first round of torture, the police then began to sexually assault her. They lifted her shirt. The torture expert then ordered the police to touch her chest. 

After the police did it, the expert then used a special massager to stimulate her chest. Next, the expert forced Ms. Jiang to take off her pants. When her pants were halfway down, the police found she was menstruating. The expert claimed that the torture had the best effect during menstruation and ordered the police to continue. Ms. Jiang almost collapsed and was in deep despair. She gave in and was forced to cooperate with the police in the interrogation.

Before the expert left, he threatened that if Ms. Jiang didn’t cooperate with them, he would go through things in his “torture toolbox” every day, which had toothpicks, strange instruments, drug bottles, and electrical wires. He added that he was usually conservative in torturing regular suspects with the “toolbox,” but when it came to Falun Gong practitioners, he was given free rein.

In the evening, Ms. Jiang was taken to the Xin’an Police Station and completed another deposition. She was transferred to the Shulan Detention Center on July 21. Her lawyer has started to work on her case.
