In modern China under the rule of the Communist Party, torture is a routine component of law-enforcement and punishment. Indeed, there are laws prohibiting torture on the books, but these exist for the most part to create a facade of civilization and "rule of law" for the benefit of the West.

Anyone who is arrested in China for any reason is at risk of being tortured (with beating being the most common form), but those most at risk are individuals such as Falun Gong practitioners who have been declared enemies of the state. When Jiang Zemin issued his famous edict, "It is not a crime to beat a Falun Gong practitioner to death. If a Falun Gong practitioner is beaten to death, it is counted as a suicide."-- the police knew what it was they were supposed to do. Jiang made it clear to all that no abuse of any Falun Gong practitioner would be considered too extreme, and no abuse would be punished.

This section deals primarily with cases of Falun Gong practitioners being tortured over the past ten years of persecution. For more details concerning specific types of physical and mental torture commonly used in China's police stations, detention centers, prisons, labor camps, and psychiatric institutions, please refer to the sub-menus in this section.
