Mr. Sun Hongchang Disabled as a Result of Torture in Qingyuan County, Fushun City, Liaoning Province
(Clearwisdom.net) On March 28, 2006, Mr. Sun Hongchang, a Falun Gong practitioner, was arrested by police officers from the First Division of Fushun City Department and the National Security Division of Qingyuan County. He was blindfolded and beaten by police at the Qingyuan Town Station. He was also tortured by being "Hung up by All Four Limbs Behind the Back" and enduring "Bamboo Stick Penetrates the Fingers" and other brutal methods. For three days and nights, residents close to the police station could hear Mr. Sun's cries. Since then, he has not been able to take care of himself. One of his legs was injured so badly during a beating he can no longer use it. The muscles have atrophied and he has no feeling in it. It has also become swollen.
Those mainly involved in beating him were Wang Xingchuan, the director of the National Security Division of Qingyuan County, and Guan Yong, a police officer from the First Department of Fushun City Department. Mr. Sun was tortured almost to death and then taken to the Dashagou Detention Center. He was denied admission because the guards in the detention center were afraid that Mr. Sun would die. Police officers bribed the guards with dinner and gifts, forcing them to accept him. Mr. Sun's mother went to the National Security Division to ask for his release. Wang Xingchuan, the director of the division, threatened her, "I regret we did not beat him to death. No one cares if a Falun Gong practitioner is beaten to death." Mr. Sun's family has asked to visit him many times, but they have only been allowed to twice, once on October 9, 2006, and the other time on November 14, 2006. A criminal inmate accompanied them each time.
On September 18, 2008, Mr. Sun was tried and sentenced to five years in prison because of "obstruction of implementation of the law" by agents of the Qingyuan County Court. However, the verdict was put into effect five days earlier, on September 13, 2008. When the hearing was held, there was no defense attorney. Reportedly, agents from the city government had already notified the county court agency to announced the verdict. Agents from the county police department took Mr. Sun to a forced labor camp and a prison, but he was turned away because of his physical condition. He is still in Dashagou Detention Center in Qingyuan County. According to the CCP's own law, Mr. Sun is qualified for a medical parole. His aging parents went to the police departments and procurators in Fushun City and Qingyuan County to ask for his release, but Xu Jinrong from the police department will not release Mr. Sun, although he claims that he is helping to ask for Mr. Sun's release and deceiving these two seniors.
Zheng Zhiwen from the Qingyuan County Appeal Office in the Police Department took Mr. Sun to check whether or not he was qualified for a medical parole. Zheng Zhiwen is now in charge of this case.
