Posted by Author on January 16, 2007

The Falun Gong Human Rights Working Group

Evidence has surfaced of over 100 torture methods being employed against Falun Gong practitioners in China’s labour camps, detention centers, and mental hospitals.

Torture Methods (6) – Savage beatingsSavage beatings

Thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been routinely beaten while in police custody for refusing to renounce Falun Gong. Police frequently beat practitioners with plastic truncheons, wooden boards, belts, and spiked batons, to name just a few.

Many practitioners have had their bones broken or have incurred internal bleeding as a result of these beatings, and dozens – if not hundreds – have died.

In most cases, their bodies are hurriedly cremated to destroy evidence of abuse in custody.

Cases

1. 25-year-old female worker extremely beaten in custody

The police grabbed Ms. Liu by her shoulders and arms, punched her fore-head, and slapped her face repeatedly. As a result, Ms. Liu was covered with bruises, and her forehead, face, and lips became swollen.

On the evening of June 6, six drunken policemen dragged three Falun Injury on Ms. Liu Aiqing's leg (2)Gong practitioners, including Ms. Liu, to a room and started another round of savage beating. The policemen grabbed the practitioners’ hair and took turns beating the them on the torso or the legs with metal batons. They also used high-voltage electric batons.

During the torture, a group of policemen beat Ms. Liu with leather belts, “Billy Clubs” (an iron or lead bar covered by rubber), and electric batons. When she passed out as a result of the extreme pain, the police poured cold water on her to re-vive her, and then resumed beating her.

The torture continued for several hours.

The next day, Ms. Liu was near death and was sent to the hospital. A medical examination revealed many serious injuries including hematuria, hypotension, and dehydration. Many blood clots were pumped out of her swollen legs.

Several days’ later, surgical drainage was performed leaving her right leg with two large holes.

One morning at the hospital, Ms. Liu was forcibly given an injection. Shortly afterwards, she lost consciousness When she awoke at around 4 p.m., she noticed that plastic surgery had been performed to re-place the damaged skin on her legs. (photo above).
