Posted by Author on January 20, 2007

Falun Dafa Information Center

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 (7) – Freezing and Exposing

Many Falun Gong practitioners in China’s northern provinces have been exposed toFreez in Snow extreme cold as a form of torture. They are routinely doused with cold water and left outside or in unheated cells to freeze.

Some have been forced to stand in or run through snow wearing only a thin layer of clothing. Thousands are left to sleep on the concrete floors of unheated prison cells in the dead of winter, and to make the cold even more unbearable.

Prison staff have been reported to leave the windows open in practitioners’cells during the night, even when practitioners badly injured or on the verge of death.

They are also exposed to extreme heat, being forced to work long hours in unventilated sweatshops or being left outside in the scorching sun.

Mr. He HuajiangMr. He Huajiang ( photo left) , male, 42, employee of the 6th Daqing Oil Factory, resident of Daqing City, Heilongjiang Provinc ( in North-east China)

Police abducted Mr. He Huajiang from his workplace, then sent him to the Daqing Labour Camp, where policemen ordered several prisoners to force him into writing a “repentance letter” denouncing Falun Gong.

That night, from around 9-11 p.m., prisoners poured cold water on him, tied him to a steel chair, stuffed his mouth, opened the windows and doors, and sometimes took him outside to freeze.

Other prisoners and Falun Gong practitioners detained there could hear Mr. He moaning terribly from the pain.

Because he was kept in the freezing cold for too long, his heart stopped beating. He froze to death at around 11 p.m. in the 2nd unit bathroom. ( details can be found from here )

2. “Hot Weather”

3. Seventeen other Falun Gong practitioners from Taitou Township, Shouguang City, Shandong Province

In July 2000, nineteen Falun Gong practitioners from Taitou Township, Shouguang City went to Beijing to appeal to the government to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. They were arrested and detained by the local authorities.

During their detention, twenty people, led by the local Communist Party Committee Secretaries (Wang and Ma), beat the practitioners with wooden clubs.

They then forced the practitioners to lie on the scalding cement surface so as to expose them to the burning sun for as long as six hours per day, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m..

The practitioners were given no food or water for three days. The practitioners were also confined in a garage with no airflow. It was so hot that it was hard to breathe. The secretary, Wang, directed several people to beat the practitioners.

Since Mr. Wang Hongsheng was suspected as the organizer of the appeal, they tied him to a tree using iron cables. Then they covered his head with a plastic bag. Over ten people beat him with wooden sticks and leather whips. Some hit him on the head until he lost consciousness. They burned his chest and stomach with cigarettes and then poured cold water on him to revive him up for more torture.

Location of Detention and Torture: Cuijiayu Town, Yishui County, Shandong Province (East China)

In July 2001, the Cuijiayu Town Government tried to force local Falun Gong practitioners to sign their names or put their fingerprints on a statement of renouncing Falun Gong. Liu Zhengxing refused to be fingerprinted. Mr. Liu was beaten with wooden sticks and rubber batons. Then the staff poured boiling water on his body, which left bruises, scars and burns all over him. To avoid any further torture, Mr. Liu left home. Learning about his departure, the police detained his wife. (Reported on 10/3/2001)
