Case Description:

Mr. Lei Ming, 30 and single, lived in Baishan City, Jilin Province. Mr. Lei, Liu Chengjun and other practitioners worked together to broadcast Falun Gong videos in Changchun on March 5, 2002 to clarify the truth to the public deceived by slanderous CCP propaganda. They were arrested and Changchun City Intermediate Court officials sentenced Mr. Lei to 17 years in prison.

Mr. Lei Ming was brutally tortured at Division 1 of the Changchun City Police Department and at Jilin Prison. The torture methods included the tiger bench, and electric shocks to the face, mouth, neck and anus. The police wrapped Mr. Lei's head in a plastic bag and nearly suffocated him. They put a metal barrel over his head and banged on it; they burned his neck with a red-hot screwdriver; they beat him, flicked his eyeballs, squeezed his testicles, and tied him onto a stretch bed for seven days. They also made him sit on a small stool from 4:50 a.m. until 7:30 p.m., which made him vomit blood. He was disabled and emaciated from the torture and could not take care of himself. He developed heart disease, tuberculosis and other conditions. He passed away on August 6, 2006.
