Persecutors from the Yantai 610 Office Sent He Xiuling to the Mortuary While She Was Still Alive
(Clearwisdom.net) In 2003, while my wife He Xiuling was producing Falun Gong truth-clarification materials in Wendeng City, policemen from the Yantai City 610 Office arrested her. She was imprisoned at the Zhifu District Detention Center for a long time, where she suffered brutal torture. At 7:30 a.m. on March 11, 2004, persecutors from the Yantai 610 Office, the Zhifu District Detention Center, and Liuhuangding Hospital sent He Xiuling to the mortuary, even though she was still breathing. Her lower body was completely naked and frozen. After they were informed of her death, her family members arrived at the mortuary around 11 o'clock, and discovered tears flowing from her eyes.
I thought she was still alive, so I immediately went looking for a doctor. Because of the lies and propaganda spread by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the doctor totally disregarded my assertions, not wanting to listen to a steadfast Falun Gong practitioner who believes in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." At the insistence of He Xiuling's relatives, however, the doctor arrived at the mortuary with electrocardiogram instrument around 11:30 a.m. Examination with the device revealed that He Xiuling's heart was still beating. After the electrocardiogram had produced more than 10 centimeters of test paper, the doctor ripped up the test results and fled.
While discussing the arrangements for handling her body with medical examiners from Shandong Province Public Security Bureau and the Shandong Province Public Prosecutor, we raised the issue of the electrocardiogram test results, which had showed that her heart was still beating. All the examiners denied the accuracy of the test results, trying to help the hospital shirk their responsibility.
Zhang Futian from the detention center, who processed the transfer of the body, agreed in writing to the following terms while my wife's body was stored at the Yantai City Funeral Home:
- While He Xiuling's body was stored there, her family members could view it at any time. Police and detention officials would not be allowed to interfere with their visitation rights for any reason.
- Before any medical examinations were conducted, her family was to be informed. Medical examinations performed without the family's consent and presence would be considered invalid.
- Her body could not be cremated without the family's consent.
At around 8:30 a.m. on February 9, 2006, a relative and I went to see He Xiuling's body. A worker at the Yantai City Funeral Home told us, "I don't know the person who made this agreement with you. If you want to see the body, you'll have to find the policeman in charge of this case, and get his permission."
My relative and I went to the detention center, but the security guard wouldn't let us in. I explained the situation to the guard and showed him the agreement. He told me that Zhang Futian had left the detention center. I asked him, "Who should I look for now?" He called someone in the management office, who told him that the only one with the authority to help me was the director of the center, but he wasn't there either. We tried, but couldn't get in contact with him. The only thing we could do was go back home. After we got there, I called the current director, Ding Xianfeng, again. He told me that he didn't know anything about the agreement. He said he would ask his boss about it and have an answer for me by February 13.
At 8:30 a.m. on February 13, I went to the detention center to find Ding Xianfeng. He told me that he couldn't make a decision and advised me to go to the 610 Office. At around 10:00 a.m. I arrived at the Zhifu District Police Station. I explained the whole story to the director of 610 Office, Li Wenguang. He asked me to talk to his boss, Mr. Gao. I explained the situation to Mr. Gao and showed him the agreement, but he told me that he still had to check with his bosses. He also told me that the agreement was useless because it was given as a personal favor from Zhang Futian.
I told him, "That's okay. Even if Zhang Futian isn't here anymore, you must still investigate it. He would never dare to sign the agreement without consent from his superiors." I waited for the whole morning for an answer and nothing happened. Finally I had to go home.
I want to draw people's attention to the fact that He Xiuling was persecuted to death. Where is her body? Does it still exist? We have no hope or confidence that the evil CCP can give us justice in this or any other matter, now or in the future.
