Case Description:

( Ms. Wang Haohong, a resident of Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province, was sentenced to seven years in 2009 and brutally tortured in Shandong Province Women’s Prison. She was also given unknown drugs. Six months after she was released, she suddenly developed severe symptoms and died on June 16, 2017. Her family recalled that she had a very good memory before her imprisonment, but she could barely remember anything after years of being given unknown drugs.

Shandong Women's Prison

The drugging of Falun Gong practitioners detained at the Shandong Women's Prison was done on a daily basis. An insider working in the prison later revealed that prison officials would claim practitioners having a family history of mental disorders. This would allow them to implement long-term drug “treatment” programs on practitioners who refused to renounce their belief, without consequence.

Such Falun Gong practitioners were caught in a hopeless Catch 22: as the drugs forced on them took effect, they caused hallucinations, memory loss, agitation, muddled thoughts – all symptoms of psychosis and mental illness. Officials then used this as an excuse to use more drugs to treat it, worsening the situation.
