Zhong Zhenfu - 钟振福
At around 11:00 p.m. on May 5, 2008, about twenty officers broke into two other practitioners' homes. They failed to arrest any practitioners, but entered a storage room using a key found on Mr. Zhong Zhenfu, and took three copy machines, a paper cutter, and some personal belongings.
Three days later, the practitioners were taken to the Pingdu City Detention Center, where the guards put shackles on Mr. Zhong Zhenfu and whipped him about the head with metal wires. His life was in danger after this abuse. He was then detained in a metal cage, and the guards ordered the criminal inmates to torture him. They tried to force him to curse the founder of Falun Gong. When Mr. Zhong refused, they whipped him with metal wires. The beating lasted for over an hour. Finally a kind person persuaded them to stop by telling them that this man was from his hometown. By then, Mr. Zhong was injured so badly that he was not able to stand up by himself.
The guards sent Zhong Zhenfu to the hospital. The doctor told them that Mr. Zhong's injuries were very serious. To avoid any responsibility, the detention center officials released him on medical parole. Mr. Zhong had to stay in the hospital for treatment for over a month, and pay over 10,000 yuan in medical expenses. He died on July 20, 2008.
