Quick Deaths in Police Custody: Don’t forget the Olympics’ Victims in China

Posted by Author on August 29, 2008

Press Release, Falun Gong Human Rights Working Group, Aug. 28, 2008-

Full report PDF version is at here.

Betting on international society’s acquiescence, the Chinese government not only refused to fulfill its promise to improve human rights for the Beijing Olympics, but, in fact, used security concerns for the Olympics as a pretext to cleanse the whole country. As a result, a large number of innocent people have suffered incarceration and torture, and many have been killed, making them victims of the Beijing Olympics.

The escalation of human rights violations leading to and during the Olympics was alarming. In the past few months, over 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been rounded up in various cities in China, and many have been tortured to death after only a few weeks in custody. The arrests have been so wide spread that many citizens and residents in other countries have had their relatives arrested in China. Considering that only a very small percentage of Chinese people have overseas connections, the situation is really very severe.

The following are a few examples of Falun Gong practitioners tortured to death recently:

Mr. Bai Heguo, 45, lived in Liaoning Province. The police from the Tongerpu District Police Department sentenced him to 11 years in the Liaoning Province Huazi Prison. Because he remained firm in his faith, he was then taken to Nanguanling Prison where he was tortured to death in less than 2 weeks. His body was covered with bruises; he had a bump on his head and a cut on his tongue, which protruded outside his mouth; his leg was broken; his testes had been crushed; and he was emaciated. He was clearly tortured to death. The authorities hurriedly cremated his body.

Ms. Gu Jianmin, 53, lived in Shanghai. Although she was perfectly healthy, she died just 13 days after the police arrested her. On the day of her death, the authorities asked her husband to process a medical parole. However, when he finally saw her, her eyes were protruding from her head, she was bleeding from the mouth, and she was left alone. He begged the doctors to save her life. They made a quick attempt and then declared her dead.

Mr. Gu Qun,
50, worked for the Xigang District Industrial and Commercial Bureau in Dalian City, Liaoning Province. They arrested him a total of 5 times. One time, they wanted to make a “typical example” of him. They shackled his hands and legs, focused a TV camera on his face, and ordered him to renounce Falun Gong. He refused. After his most recent arrest, he went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. They violently force-fed and tortured him, severely damaging him physically. They took him to the doctor, who said he needed urgent care, but they merely brought him back to the detention center. He died less than 3 weeks after his arrest.

Mr. Sun Guanzhou, 62, lived in Henan Province. He was a professor at Yuzhou City Education College. Shortly after his last arrest, the authorities took him to the hospital where the doctor said he should not remain in detention. They then demanded 25,000 Yuan to release him, but the family didn’t have that much. He died in the detention center within a week of his arrest.

Ms. Zong Xiuxia lived in the Fangzi District in Weifang City, Shandong Province. The police arrested her at 9 a.m. while she was shopping. She died after only 4 hours in police custody. The police alleged that she “jumped” to her death from the hospital elevator after they took her there for a check-up. Her family was in shock and kept asking questions to find out what really happened.
