(Clearwisdom.net) While imprisoned in Jiamusi Prison on August 18, 2010, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Dai Qihong refused to participate in hard labor in order to protest how terribly he was being treated. Subsequently, Wang Yantao, leader of the 3rd Brigade in the 1st Prison Area, ordered inmates to beat him. Later, they dragged Mr. Dai to the workshop and used electric batons to shock sensitive areas of his body. Mr. Dai's mouth was injured from the electric batons. He is in very serious condition and cannot eat. More details are forthcoming.

Mr. Dai was previously a civil servant in Mudanjiang Prison and a policeman. He is kind, always happy to help others, and was recognized as a key production technical worker. Mr. Dai was reported to authorities by a soldier on August 3, 2008. Mr. Dai had handed out information that explained the facts about Falun Gong. He was arrested by officials from the Mudanjiang 610 Office and police station, then sentenced to five years in prison.

Mudanjiang Prison officials took Mr. Dai to the 4th Brigade, 2nd Prison Area, Lianjiangkou Prison, Jiamusi, Heilongjiang Province, on July 3, 2009. His activities are currently monitored by two inmates.
