Case Description:

( Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Wang Kaiming from Panjin, Liaoning had a brain hemorrhage for the second time on January 19, 2011 at Ward 4 in Panjin Prison. He became unconscious and went into a vegetative state. To shirk responsibility, the prison sent Mr. Wang to the emergency room at the People's Hospital No. 2 in Panjin. Mr. Wang's hands and feet were cuffed while he was there. In March, the prison feared that Mr. Wang might die soon and sent him to Youtian Central Hospital in Liaohe for medical treatment. Mr. Wang Kaiming passed away on December 20, 2011.

Mr. Wang Kaiming started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996, and was a volunteer assistant at his local practice site. Mr. Wang followed the guiding principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and became a healthy, dedicated worker. Those around him saw him as a good supervisor, a good coworker and a good husband. Mr. Wang and his wife were persecuted many times after the CCP started the persecution of Falun Gong.

On April 28, 2008, policemen Han Shilong and Xing Baochang from the Gaocai Police Station in Panjin, Wang Guolin from the local neighborhood community office and others used the excuse of the upcoming Beijing Olympics Games to arrest Mr. Wang Kaiming outside of his home. They snatched Mr. Wang's house key from him and went inside his apartment. Policemen took away Mr. Wang's computer and many other personal belongings without the permission of any family members.

Mr. Wang Kaiming was secretly detained at the Panjin Detention Center for almost half a year. He was sentenced to 4 years in prison in October 2008 by a Panjin Court. Mr. Wang was first brutally tortured at Nanshan Prison in Jinzhou, then transferred to Squad 9 of Ward 4 at Panjin Prison in the later part of 2009. Squad leader Wang Junsong and other guards brutally persecuted Mr. Wang with various means.

On April 14, 2010, Mr. Wang became unconscious after being tortured by prison guards from Ward 4 at Panjin Prison. Mr. Wang's family was notified after he was sent to the intensive care unit at the People's Hospital No. 2. Mr. Wang was diagnosed with a brain hemorrhage and was in critical condition. His hands and feet were cuffed as he was lying on the bed. He received a large amount of medication through IV. He could not speak and only his daughters were allowed to care for him. Mr. Wang's wife, Ms. Yao Guilan, had passed away due to persecution in September 2009. His eldest daughter just had a baby, his second daughter is a college student. His daughters repeatedly requested permission to have their father released for medical treatment; however, Panjin Prison claimed that the Gaocai Police Station would not grant such permission, therefore the request could not be granted. Mr. Wang spent 11 days at the People's Hospital No. 2 and was then sent to Panjin Prison Hospital. The persecution continued there and the medication he received while he was there is unknown.

In January, 2011, Mr. Wang had a brain hemorrhage for the second time and went into a vegetative state. Panjin Prison sent Mr. Wang to the People's Hospital No. 2 at Panjin again, and again his hands and feet were cuffed. It was not until March, after Mr. Wang's condition did not show any sign of improvement and Panjin Prison started to fear being held responsible if Mr. Wang died, that Panjin Prison finally allowed him to be released for medical treatment. Mr. Wang was transferred to the Central Hospital of Liaohe Oilfield, where his two daughters took care of him. All of the family's over 100 thousand yuan in savings was spent on his medical treatment. Mr. Wang had no income nor health insurance ever since he was terminated from his job. His condition deteriorated rapidly in December 2011, and he passed away on December 20. His fellow practitioners went to visit him while Mr. Wang was at the Central Hospital of Liaohe. Mr. Wang had tears coming out of his eyes but he never spoke again.
