(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Zhang Xiaoping from Xingqing District, Yinchuan City, was illegally arrested and detained for one month because she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. She was sentenced to a forced labor camp for three years for handing out Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials in December 2000. In the labor camp, Zhang Xiaoping was deceived by the false pretense and lies, and was "transformed." In 2004, after studying the Fa and with the help of other practitioners, Zhang Xiaoping realized her mistake, and rejoined the mighty current of Fa-rectification. She then helped other practitioners who were "transformed" under duress to return to the righteous path again. Because of this, the police see her as a thorn in the eye.

On May 14, 2005, the Yingchuan Police Department and Xingqing Public Security Sub-bureau used sinister schemes to entrap and arrest Dafa practitioners. On May 15, the police arrested Zhang Xiaoping and another practitioner from her hair salon. The police searched the Salon, but they didn't find any evidence they needed. They then robbed Zhang Xiaoping of all her private possessions - cash, bank deposit book and jewelry. They also searched the homes of Zhang Xiaoping's parents and her sister. After that, they arrested another five Dafa practitioners.

In the first five or six days, the police without any factual or legal basis attempted to extort a confession from Zhang Xiaoping by torturing her in the 610 Office and Xingqing Public Security Sub-bureau. In order to extract information about the Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials production sites, the police targeted Zhang Xiaoping. Other practitioners were subjected to threats, deceit, isolation and various cruel tortures. Zhang Xiaoping was tortured by being tied up and hung up for as long as ten hours, made to sit on the tiger bench three times, vicious forced-feeding, being handcuffed with her arms behind her back and having her feet shackled for extended periods of time, as well as other brutal tortures. However, the police still didn't get what they wanted from Zhang Xiaoping.

From October last year to March this year, Zhang Xiaoping had both her hands and feet shackled like death row criminals. The longest period lasted 46 days. The police didn't allow other prisoners to give her help. Zhang Xiaoping refused to answer roll call, recite the prison regulations, or perform slave labor, and openly practiced the Falun Gong exercises. She went on hunger strike three times to protest the persecution.

The lengthy period of persecution took a toll on her health, and Ms. Zhang became very feeble and unrecognizable. Not until March 2, did the Xixia District Investigation Department and the Yinchuan Detention Center notify Zhang Xiaoping's family after Zhang Xiaoping had been on hunger strike for 12 days, and was rushed to the Emergency Resuscitation Center.

Many scars from being tied up and from being tortured on a metal chair were clearly evident on her body. At present, Zhang Xiaoping is at home.
