(Clearwisdom.net) So-called "psychiatric treatment" is one of the various torture methods that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) uses on Falun Gong practitioners. Li Guangxiong is an employee at the Material Company of the 5th Bureau of China Rail. Deceived by years of CCP propaganda contrived to demonize Falun Gong, he sent his wife Nie Tiemei to a psychiatric hospital three times, where she was mentally tormented and physically tortured. More details follow:


Nie Tiemei, 36, was an employee of Huaihua Electricity Plant. Her husband, Li Guangxiong, who works at the Material Company of the 5th Bureau of China Rail, believed the deception and lies in the CCP's media propaganda since the launch of the persecution on July 20, 1999, and for a long time he had physically abused his wife because she persisted in her practice of Falun Gong.

At the end of 1999, Nie Tiemei went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. She was arrested and detained. During a period of seven days, Li Guangxiong brutally beat her three times, whipping her with his leather belt until her head was cut and bleeding. She lost her job for appealing for Falun Gong, so Li Guangxiong released all his anger on his wife. He tied his wife's hands and feet to a water pipe in the bathroom for eight hours every day, until he came back from work. Sometimes he tied her in the corridor of his work place. Many people at his workplace witnessed it. When he was on a temporary assignment at Dajiangkou, once after drinking, Li Guangxiong hit his wife with a stool. When someone blocked him, he then tried to hack at her with a knife. Someone hid the knife from him. When it was snowing, he forbade her to go to bed and forced her to stay outside in freezing temperatures and snow wearing only underwear. On two occasions, he tore up her clothes in front of a crowd of people. She was left with only a bra on her upper body. He then insulted her. He beat her almost every day. In 2001, Nie Tiemei gave up practicing Falun Gong under this pressure. The insults and beatings lessened afterwards.

In August 2004, when more and more people were learning the truth of Falun Gong, Nie Tiemei resumed the practice. Her husband tried all he could to stop her. Again, he started beating her every day. Nie Tiemei's body was always covered in bruises.

Once, two practitioners came to visit her. When her husband heard they were Falun Gong practitioners, he beat the male practitioner with a brick. The practitioner's body was covered with blood. Li Guangxiong also called the 110 police line [similar to 911 in North America], causing them to be arrested and taken to Yingfeng Police Station. The police station chief Tang Guangqun also slandered the practitioners and accused them of having an intimate relationship. Li Guangxiong kicked and hit the practitioners, brutally attacking them. When he went home, he continued abusing his wife, either beating or scolding her. Nie Tiemei lived in terror and was under enormous pressure. In September 2004, her family sent her to a psychiatric hospital, the Fourth People's Hospital in Huaihua City for a month, where she was forced to take medicines and injections.

In February 2005, a practitioner was arrested at his own shop. Nie Tiemei heard the news and went to the city police station and the 610 Office to ask for justice. They didn't give her any direct answers. Her husband called her a psycho in public. He and Nie Tiemei's family once again sent her to the psychiatric hospital, this time for ten days.

On May 30, 2005, while Nie Tiemei was clarifying the truth at work, someone reported her to the authorities. Officers from the 610 Office and police station came over. Her family thought that sending Nie Tiemei to the psychiatric hospital could prevent her from being arrested, so they forced her into the Fourth People's Hospital in Huaihua.

The seven so-called experts at the hospital diagnosed her as having "Falun Gong schizophrenia." Nie Tiemei clearly told the hospital, "I practice Falun Gong. I don't have neurosis." She went on a hunger strike and refused to take any medication. She was nevertheless injected with unknown drugs and was forced to take pills. After that her mind became blurry. She felt dizzy and sleepy all the time. She couldn't stop her arms and legs from shaking. Li Guangxiong felt that something was wrong. He told the doctor, "Don't make her take injections and medications anymore." Tong Zijin, the doctor-in-charge said, "If no injection or medication, then why put her in here?" The doctor also said to Nie Tiemei, "A doctor will determine whether or not you are sick. Of course, I may not be able to persuade you. But you must take injections and medication." Their goal was to force her to give up cultivation. This hospitalization continued for three months. She was not allowed to go home until August 30.

Nie Tiemei insisted that she would continue to practice cultivation. But her husband threatened her as usual. She was in extreme misery and under extreme pressure, and she eventually suffered a mental collapse. After she became mentally distraught, she cut the vein on her wrist (The cut took nine stitches to fix). Later she was forced to leave home to avoid further persecution. To date, she still feels numb all over her body. She cannot keep her balance while walking and has lost her memory.

There was another incident, in which the Fourth People's Hospital of Huaihua persecuted Falun Gong practitioners.
