In their conversation, lawyer Gao said during his 129-day period of detainment, he suffered different forms of torture carried out by inmates for extended periods of time:

He was handcuffed for totally 600 hours, tied to a specially made iron chair for 590 hours, surrounded by strong light for 590 hours, and was forced to sit on the floor with legs crossed for 800 hours; the longest time he was bound to a chair was 109 hours.

After the phone call with Gao, Mr. Hu Jia immediately called the German Embassy and said he would discuss with them the situation of Gao and his family. His call was monitored, resulting in his arrest.

As an AIDS activist and outspoken human rights advocate, Mr. Hu Jia was detained for 41 days early last year. Then he was under police surveillance for more than 200 days until Feb. 16, 2007 when he was allowed to make a trip to Hong Kong.

Mr. Hu Jia is said to be suffering from Hepatitis B and in the early stage of liver cirrhosis.
