How Practitioner Wang Xiuyun Was Persecuted to Death
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Wang Xiuyun from Huadian City, Jilin Province was illegally arrested by police officers from the Huadian City Public Security Bureau on June 3, 2002. The police officers intimidated, interrogated and tortured her severely. When she was dying, they sent her to the Changchun (Heizuizi) Women's Prison. Seven days later, Ms. Wang Xiuyun passed away.
Afterwards, Yu Jinji, the director of the Political Security Section in the Huadian City Public Security Bureau, claimed publicly, "We deal with Falun Gong too lightly. It was proper to persecute Ms. Wang Xiuyun to death. Her family members can not do anything."
In June, 2002, practitioners Ms. Wang Xiuyun, Ms. Xiao Ling, Mr. Xu Guijun, Mr. Wang Xiaohu, Ms. Yu Cuifan and Ms. Ban Huijuan were arrested. Director Yu Jinji used various methods to torture them, including beating them mercilessly, shocking them with electric batons, the "big hang-up" (1) and tiger bench tortures, hanging them while their hands are handcuffed behind their backs, tying them spread-eagle onto a bed, depriving them use of the restroom, covering their mouths and noses with wet table napkins, and gagging them with dirty cloths. Ms. Wang became very weak after such persecution.
In the Huadian City Detention Center, Ms. Wang Xiuyun went on a hunger strike to protest. Zhou Jian from the 610 Office and Yu Jinji ordered the deputy director of the detention center, Liu X Jun, (full given name is unknown) and the prison doctor Li Gui to force-feed Ms. Wang, and claimed, "If she dies from force-feeding, then it'll be called a suicide."
One day in June, Li Gui and Liu, together with several inmates and the nurses from the Gangtie Hospital of Huadian City, held Ms. Wang Xiuyun to the ground while more than ten people carried out a brutal force-feeding. Some held her neck, and others held her arms, her head, and her legs. Meanwhile, Ms. Wang could hardly breathe, but they continued to force-feed her. Several inmates at the scene were so frightened that they started to scream. Ms. Wang Xiuyun was choked in the process, and after a few minutes, she stopped struggling and moving.
Some people were so frightened that they cried. The police officers kept on shouting and cursing while taking Ms. Wang Xiuyun to hospital. From that day on, even though Ms. Wang was rescued, she became short of breath and could not lie down. She was sent to the town hospital several times.
Afterwards, she could not lie down and could only sit up. Five months later, her family members asked the police officers to release her, but the 610 Office refused their request and asked them to pay 30,000 yuan. Ms. Wang's brother said, "You have already fined us forty-five thousand yuan during the last several years. Where can we get more money now?" The police officer then laughed maliciously and replied, "Then, we cannot help you."
From then on, Ms. Wang Xiuyun's abdomen was distended so badly that she could not lie down for six months. When the Huadian Detention Center and the 610 Office found that Wang Xiuyun was in critical condition, they secretly gave her an injection and sent her to Changchun Women's Prison immediately.
After she arrived in the prison, the prison doctor said that she had pneumonia and could not be cured. Seven days later, Ms. Wang Xiuyun died. Both Changchun Women's Prison and the Huadian 610 Office tried to shirk the responsibility. Her family could do nothing but bear the grief.
Those responsible for Ms. Wang's death include Yu Jinji (director of the Political Protection Section in the Huadian City Public Security Bureau), Zhou Jian (from the 610 Office), Liu X Jun (deputy director of the detention center), prison doctor Li Gui and the nurse in the Gangtie Hospital.
We hope that the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong will record Ms. Wang Xiuyun's case and bring the murderers to justice.

1. "Big hang up": There are two forms in this torture: (1) With both hands cuffed behind the back and only the toes touching the ground, one is hung by a rope that is tied to the metal window frames. (2) One hand of a practitioner is cuffed to one bunk bed and the other hand to another bed, and the two beds are pulled in the opposite directions. One feels extreme pain as the body is pulled.
