Practitioner Mr. Guo Shijun from Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province Tortured to Death
Mr. Guo Shijun was a Falun Dafa practitioner who lived in Hongqi Township, Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. In 2004, he went to Dongfu Village, Dongguan Town, Shuangcheng City to clarify the truth, and was reported on. He was arrested by police and locked in the Shuangcheng City Second Detention Center. When arrested, his pockets contained more than 360 yuan cash and his family housing license. Mr. Guo's wife was already detained in Wanjia Labor Camp at that time, and thus their ten-year-old daughter was left home alone until his wife was released in July 2004.
Mr. Guo Shijun was subjected to brutal tortures in the detention center. He was later sentenced to three years of forced labor and sent to Changlinzi Labor Camp. Inside that camp, he was tortured by many means, that his back skin was covered with purple black marks from electric baton shocks; his buttocks were all beaten and misshapen. The uniformed guards forced him sit on an iron chair (1), first for 48 hours, then for four consecutive days, resulting in his buttocks becoming infected. He went on hunger strike three times to protest the persecution. He used to be a very healthy man, but after torture he looked like a completely different person.
On February 1, 2005 Mr. Guo was dying, and so the police sent him home. He was unconscious, unable to move, coughing, and in extreme pain. The police in the camp said to him, "No one would take care of you in our patient's cell, and you would have died in a few days. So you'd better stay alive here; we do not want to be held responsible for your death."
On February 3, 2005, guards from the camp came to take him for a check-up at the hospital. They had to send him back home, and said, "He has lung and liver cancers, and he won't live more than a week."
Mr. Guo Shijun died at noon on February 9, 2005, Chinese New Year Day. All the villagers know that Mr. Guo was very healthy before, but died after police locked him up for 18 months.
His death is another crime that Jiang and his regime have committed toward people who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance." It is another blood debt owed by Changlinzi Labor Camp.
