Police Beat Liaoning Woman, Attempt to Falsify Her Body Temperature in Order to Detain Her

(Minghui.org) The police in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province didn’t only beat a woman after arresting her for practicing Falun Gong, but also tried to fabricate her body temperature in order to detain her, when the detention center previously rejected her admission due to her high temperature.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Gao Ying was arrested on May 24, 2022, when she was working in a field. She refused to answer any questions after she was taken to the police station for interrogation. Officer Chen Xinyu slapped her in the face, hit her in the ribs, and stabbed her ribs with a pen. The left side of her face, as well as multiple places in her body and arms, were covered with bruises.

When the police took Ms. Gao to the local detention center the next day, the staff refused to accept her, as her temperature was 37.5°C (99.5°F). They urged the police to try again seven days later.

The police took Ms. Gao back to the police station and held her there overnight. They took her to the detention center the next day, only to be turned away again as Ms. Gao’s temperature became higher at 37.7°C (99.86°F).

Xu Shilin, the head of Liaotun Police Station, called Zhang Xiaomin, the head of the Domestic Security Office, about what to do. Zhang instructed Xu to take Ms. Gao to the hospital and give her some antibiotics.

After two days of “treatment,” the police made a third attempt to take Ms. Gao to the detention center. They prepared a special thermometer, setting the temperature at 36.5°C (97.7°F), and attempted to replace it with the thermometer used by the detention center. Ms. Gao discovered their plan to swap thermometers and called them out in front of the detention center staff. She was thus denied admission again because of her high temperature.

The police were furious and upset about the situation. As when they took Ms. Gao’s temperature themselves, it was fine. But when the detention center took her temperature, it always became higher. With no other way to detain her, they finally released her.

Prior to her latest arrest, Ms. Gao has been living away from home to hide from the police, after she was arrested earlier and released on bail.
