China: 20 Falun Gong Adherents Persecuted to Death In June 2007

Posted by Author on August 8, 2007


(excerpt) Falun Dafa Information Center, 8/7/2007-

NEW YORK – During the month of June, the Falun Dafa Information Center has recorded the deaths of 20 Falun Gong adherents as a result of the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of the practice.

Some of the deaths took place as early as January 2007 but only became known in June due to the difficulties and dangers involved in obtaining such sensitive information from inside China…….

Below are a few of the death cases compiled during the month of June:

1. Teacher Dies from Torture and Neglect

Wei Fengju was a well-respected teacher at Dongfeng County’s No. 4 Middle School inWei Fengju Jilin province. She started practicing Falun Gong in the late 1990s.

On December 30, 1999, five months after the communist regime began persecuting Falun Gong, she went to Beijing to petition to Chinese government to reverse its policy. She was illegally sentenced to the First Division of the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp for a year where she was forced to work for 17 to 20 hours a day and was shocked with electric batons on her breasts and mouth causing her mouth to become disfigured.

After being released in March 2001, police continued to harass her and her school refused to reinstate her. Her husband divorced her, leaving the unemployed Wei alone to care for their 15-year-old son. In January 2002, Wei was arbitrarily arrested again and sent to Changchun city’s Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp for over three years.

In October 2005, she was again sent to Heizuizi, this time for one and a half years. While she was detained, her mother passed away, but Wei was not allowed to attend the funeral. The camp also never allowed her 70-year-old father to visit her.

After the prolonged detention, Wei began feeling severe pain in her abdomen and could not eat. She asked to see a doctor, but her request was denied and labor camp officials neglected her.

She was released on April 30, 2007, extremely emaciated. Her condition rapidly deteriorated and blood began appearing in her urine.

She died at 4:15 p.m. on July 12, 2007, at the age of 50.

Officials responsible for Ms. Wei’s death:

Zhang Baocheng, the local political-legal committee secretary: 86-437-6216968, 86-437-6210265
Zhang Zhiting, Dongfeng Police director: 86-437-6222794, 86-13904375928 (Cell)
Pan Dong, Dongfeng County Police Deputy director: 86-437-6224393, 86-13504375166 (Cell)
Li Wensheng, director of the Dongfeng 610 Office: 86-13504372728 (Cell)
Gu Jiahai, National Security Team Chief: 86-13904371222 (Cell), 86-437-6215022

2. Woman tortured to death after Family Told She Would Not be Released before the Olympics

Wang Minli, 43, was the former secretary of the Communist Youth League at the Jilin City Fur Factory in Jilin province. She had been arrested and persecuted many times since 1999. A United Nations Special Rapporteur had previously called for her rescue on May 21, 2003.

On March 15, 2007, Wang was arrested again by a group of officers from the National Security Division at Changyi District Police Department led by Du Xingze. They detained her at the Yueshan Road Police Dog Training Base in Jilin city where National Security agents beat her. They poured mustard oil in her eyes, causing blindness in one eye, and broke one of her legs by beating her with wooden sticks.

Her family went to the National Security Division following her arrest to inquire about her condition. The officials said they would neither sentence her nor would they release her until after the 2008 Olympic Games.

Wang suddenly died at 2:00 p.m. on June 19, 2007.

3. 58-year-old Woman tortured to death after Two Weeks in Custody

Falun Gong practitioner Fu Guiju, 58, died on June 18, 2007. She was a retiree from theFu Guiju Zhangjiakou city Petroleum Corporation in Hebei province. For eight years she and her husband suffered from beatings and persecution in and out of detention centers.

On May 12, 2007, when Fu was reading a Falun Gong book inside the home of an elderly fellow practitioner, authorities suddenly arrived and seized them. Fu was locked up at the Shisanli Detention Center in Zhangjiakou city. She was tortured severely until her life was in danger.

On May 21, 2007, her family members were allowed to take her home. Before she was able to recover, however, Meng Gang, Guo Long and other officers from the Qiaoxi District Police Department kidnapped her from her home on the morning of June 4.

On June 19, 2007, the South Mingde Police Station notified her family that Fu had died the previous day.

According to insiders, the Shisanli Detention Center officials ordered Fu to be force-fed. This torture method involves prison guards or inmates inserting a hard plastic tube through the nose or the mouth, down the throat, and into the stomach. Then various solutions ranging from diluted porridge to salt water to human urine and feces are poured down the tube and into either the stomach or the lungs, depending on how the tube is inserted.

Approximately ten percent of all recorded deaths of Falun Gong practitioners from torture in custody have come as a result of this torture method. While details remain incomplete, it appears that this was the cause of Fu’s death as well.

China Arrests 4 Underground Catholic Priests

Posted by Author on July 29, 2007


Press Release, Cardinal Kung Foundation, July 28, 2007-

Stamford, Connecticut, U.S.A.  —  In the afternoon of July 24, 2007, at the home of a Catholic faithful in the Ximeng (錫盟) region of Inner Mongolia (內蒙古), three underground Roman Catholic priests from Xiwanzi (西灣子), Hebei (河北), were arrested by eight civilian-clothed policemen, because they refused to join the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association and because they are loyal and obedient to Pope Benedict.

They were hiding in Inner Mongolia in order to avoid the arrests, but they were finally hunted down by the Security Police.

The names of these three priests are:

Father LIANG Aijun (梁愛軍), 35 years old, Chong Li county (崇禮縣), Hebei (河北).

Father WANG Zhong (王忠), 41 years old, Gu Yuan county (沽源縣), Hebei (河北).

Father GAO Jinbao (高金寶), 34 years old, Shang Yi county, Hebei (河北).

During the initial phase of the arrest, the priests were locked up in an iron cage. They were not allowed to talk to anyone. Water brought to them was refused by the police. They have now all been transferred to an undisclosed location.

In addition, a fourth priest, Father CUI Tai (崔太) of Shuangshu Village (雙樹村), Zhuolu County (琢鹿縣), 50 years old, was involved in a minor motorcycle accident in early July, 2007. After the accident was resolved, the authority transferred him to the public security and religious bureau. He has been detained in the Zhuolu County detention cell ever since.

Father CUI has also refused to register with the Patriotic Association. He belongs to the diocese of Xuanhua (宣化教區), Hebei.

Joseph Kung, the President of the Cardinal Kung Foundation, said: “In his China letter published about a month ago on June 30, Pope Benedict, apparently referring to the Patriotic Association, said: ‘the proposal for a Church that is ‘independent’ of the Holy See, in the religious sphere, is incompatible with Catholic doctrine.’ The Pope continued to say: ‘Many bishops have undergone persecution…..lay faithful….even paying a personal price for their faithfulness to Christ.’ The Pope also assured the Chinese government that Catholics can also be “good citizens” and respectfully asked the Chinese government to guarantee them ‘authentic religious freedom.'”

“Let us not forget that there are, as far as we know, still five bishops in jail; many other bishops are under house arrests and severe surveillance; and approximately 15 priests and some Catholic lay persons – an unknown number of them – are also in jail. While we need to ‘love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us,’ as Pope Benedict told us in his China letter, we also need to awaken the world to the ongoing persecution of the Roman Catholic Church in China. The freedom-loving and powerful countries of the world should take into greater consideration – consistently, and persistently, and not haphazardly – all human rights violations in China when forming and implementing their political and commercial decisions in relation to China.”

“In the meantime, we urge the Chinese government to take steps immediately to stop all persecution throughout China and release all Roman Catholic bishops and clergy together with those faithful of other faith from prisons as a goodwill gesture to Pope Benedict and to restore the world confidence in its leadership.”

China: Cyber-dissident beaten in prison by inmates at behest of guards

Posted by Author on July 10, 2007


Reporters Without Borders, 9 July 2007-

Guo Qizhen, a cyber-dissident who was arrested on 12 May 2006 and was sentenced to four years in jail for “inciting subversion of state authority,” was beaten by fellow-inmates in his cell in Shijiazhuang prison (in the northern province of Hebei) at the behest of the prison’s guards. His wife said she found him covered with bruises when she was finally able to visit him on 18 June, after two months of being refused permission by the prison authorities.

Guo had a broken leg at the time of his arrest and has not received adequate treatment in prison. His health had deteriorated considerably.

Four-year jail sentence against cyber-dissident Guo Qizhen

Reporters Without Borders has condemned a four-year jail sentence handed down to cyber-dissident Guo Qizhen, a human rights activist, after he was found guilty of “incitement to subversion”, the eighth such conviction against a journalist or cyber-dissident this year.

Guo, 49, was sentenced on 16 October 2006 for having posted articles on foreign-based websites denouncing the government’s crackdown on fundamental freedoms.

“President Hu Jintao is following as repressive a policy against the Internet as his predecessor Jiang Zemin,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.

“China is today fully integrated into the consultations of nations but this country does not respect the international promises it makes relating to respecting human rights and freedom of expression,” said the organisation.

Guo’s lawyer, Li Jianqiang, said that the court in Cangzhou in Hebei province, central China had also deprived his client of his political rights for three years. He added that Guo had been allowed to speak at length during the hearing and he even voiced his confidence in the court which was trying him.

His wife, Zhao Changqing, told Reuters that her husband’s conviction was illegal and that she would appeal.

Among a large number of articles critical of the government which Guo posted on foreign-based sites, was one in which he said it was time for the Chinese people to “sound the knell of this dire regime”. His arrest, on 12 May 2006, appeared to be linked to his joining a “rotating” hunger strike started by lawyer Gao Zhisheng to protest at human rights violations in China.

China is by far the world’s largest prison for journalists and cyber-dissidents, with 72 such people in its jails. Eight of them have been sentenced during 2006 to up to ten years in prison for “espionage” or “subversion”.

5 Newborns Found in Stolen Car in Northern China

Posted by Author on June 8, 2007


Reuters, Wed Jun 6, 2007-

BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese police have found five babies abandoned in the back of a stolen car and have no idea who they are but suspect they may have been kidnapped, state media reported on Wednesday.

Officers in the northern province of Hebei flagged down a “suspicious” black car in the early hours of Sunday and two men inside, brandishing knives, fled the scene.

Police found the babies, three boys and two girls about 10 days old, in the back, newspapers said.

Police later found the car had been stolen in Shanghai but belonged to somebody from the eastern province of Zhejiang, the Beijing Youth Daily said.

At least one of the male babies could have been taken from a hospital in Zhejiang provincial capital Hangzhou, it added, and DNA samples had been sent to Hebei.

The babies were in good health and being looked after in a local hospital, the newspaper said.

The kidnapping for sale of children, and women, is a nationwide problem in China.

Stringent rules on family planning allow most couples to have just one child, at least in cities. The restrictions have bolstered a traditional bias for male offspring, seen as the mainstay for elderly parents, and have resulted in abortions, killings or abandonment of baby girls.

73-year-old Underground Bishop Arrested 10th Time in China

Posted by Author on June 7, 2007


Press Release, The Cardinal Kung Foundation, June 6, 2007-

Stamford, Connecticut, U.S.A. — Bishop Jia Zhiguo (賈治國), the underground Roman Catholic bishop of the Diocese of Zheng Ding (正定) in Hebei (河北) Province, was arrested again by the public security bureau at approximately 9:30 in the morning (Beijing time) on June 5, 2007. We do not know why the bishop was taken away, nor do we know where he is. As of this press time, which is approximately 12:30 midnight Beijing time 15 hours after his arrest, he has not been released.

Unconfirmed sources have reported that, while the bishop was being taken away, in a conversation between the police and the crowd, the police were overheard to say that the bishop would be incarcerated for approximately 10 days.

Bishop Jia is 73 years old and was ordained a bishop in 1980. He was previously in jail for approximately 20 years and has been under strict surveillance for many years by the Chinese authorities. He takes care of approximately 100 handicapped orphans in his house.

As far as we know, he has been arrested ten times since January 2004.

Ever since Bishop Jia was released from police custody on September 25, 2006 after being held there for more than 10 months, his pastoral activities were more severely limited by the Chinese authorities than previously. He was not even allowed to step out of the courtyard of his residence, was not allowed to administer the “Last Rites (anointing of the sick)” for his dying parishioners, and was not allowed any visitors. When his uncle, an elderly priest, fell and was severely injured, after numerous requests, the bishop was allowed to briefly visit him only once under strict surveillance of the police.

Joseph Kung, the President of the Cardinal Kung Foundation, said: “I once again urgently call on the Olympic Committee to take note of this arrest of Bishop Jia together with other serious violations of the human rights in China and urge the Committee to cancel the 2008 Olympic Games in China because it is so obvious and transparent that these violations of the human rights in China, as exemplified by the repeated arrest of this peaceful religious prelate, are not in conformity with the principle, spirit and good name of the Olympics.”

China Leader Admitted for First Time Regime is Facing Crisis

Posted by Author on January 16, 2007


By Luo Bing, Chengming Monthly Magazine (Chinese), Hongkong, Jan. 1, 2007-

Chinese President Hu Jingtao admitted recently that the Chinese Communist PartyCover, Chengming Monthly, Jan. 1, 2007 (CCP) regime is facing three unprecedented crises: A political crisis, a crisis revolving around social infrastructure, and a crisis concerning overall governance within the regime. Among them, the crisis of governance is the most threatening.

CCP is Faced With Three Unprecedented Crises

It was at the Annual Conference of the 12th Central Committee Political Bureau of 2006 that Hu admitted to the enormous pressure that the ruling party is facing. This pressure comes in the form of three unprecedented crises. These are: a political crisis, a social infrastructure crisis, and a crisis concerning governance. All three of these crises are triggered by and amplified by one another, creating a very difficult situation.

Among the three crises, the one revolving around governance of the regime is most serious. Hu wasted no time in pointing out that the most serious and urgent issue the CCP is facing is the implementation of the party’s principles and policies to the entire country. This is critical in that it is needed to check, reverse, and ultimately solve the crisis. It is directly related to the country’s fate, the interests of 1.3 billion people, and the vitality of the party as a ruling party.

Vice Premier Wu Banguo said at the meeting that the escalation of the governance crisis at the local level had all but destroyed the stability of society, economic development, financial order, and any potential for a harmonious relationship between the people and the government.

Disclosures: 200 to 250 reports regarding political issues, social stability, or accidents submitted by local governments account for half of the various reports every day.

A new trend has appeared recently, which is, more reports are about superstructure, democratic parties, and appealing events in religious circles. For example, legal proceedings against various party committees and government departments are used to put the heads of the respective government departments and legal departments into a passive state.

Premier Wen Jiabao said, “Lawsuits against the party or its government organs from all circles reflect not only the progress in the legal system and its law-making procedures, but also the administrative gap between the party, government organizations, and the law, which serves to worsen the crisis in governance.”

Summary of the 31-Province Questionnaire on CCP and its Organizations

The assessment questionnaire of CCP and its organizations of the 31 provinces, autonomous regions and the municipalities directly under the central government are summarized below:

(1) None of them are listed as Category 1 (good, very good, very satisfied), or Category 2 (good, satisfactory).

(2) Category 3 (normal) consists of: Beijing City, Tianjin City, Jiangsu Province, Zhejiang Province and the Tibet Autonomous Region. Ningxia Muslim Autonomous Region, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Hainan Province.

(3) Category 4 (unsatisfactory, bad) consists of: Liaoning Province, Jilin Province, Guangdong Province, Fujian Province, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Shanghai City, Shandong Province, Sichuan Province, Guizhou Province, Gansu Province and other provinces.

(4) Category 5 (very dissatisfied, poor) consists of: Hebei Province, Shanxi Province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Heilongjiang Province, Anhui Province, Jiangxi Province, Henan Province, Hubei Province, Hunan Province, Chongqing City, Shaanxi Province, Yunnan Province and Qinghai Province. Among them, Henan, Anhui, Shanxi, Hunan received very low points. In the provinces (autonomous regions) which are classified as Category 5 (very dissatisfied, poor), city government, police officers, and the legal system are going through judicial darkness and collusion with the business sector. The society is chaotic and wide gaps have developed between the rich and the poor, resulting in fierce, often violent protests.

The Central Committee of the CCP dispatched teams to 19 provinces (autonomous regions) in light of the current situation.

Central Authorities Have Introduced New Plan For Dealing with Social Gatherings

The Central Committee and State Council of the CCP recently promulgated a number of regulations detailing ways to strictly deal with group activities.

It includes five topics in total. It stresses that the accidents resulting from local governments’ violation of regulations and policies made by the Central Committee of the CCP would be investigated for dereliction of duty. If large-scale protests occur and cause casualties and economic losses, the corresponding people in the local government must be held responsible for serious misconduct and receive criminal prosecution.

The so-called “scale” criterion means above 5000 people in the provincial cities and above 2,000 people in other cities are involved in an accident, or above 20 people wounded, including five or more death in an accident, or with economic losses( direct and indirect) of more than 20 million yuan (about U.S. $ 2.5 million).

Photo: China Modern Torture Methods (3)- Sexual Abuse

Posted by Author on December 31, 2006


[tweetmeme source=’chinaindepth’ only_single=false]

Falun Dafa Information Center

Evidence has surfaced of over 100 torture methods being employed by Chinese  police against Falun Gong (see also video on Youtube) practitioners in China’s labour camps, detention centers, and mental hospitals.

Torture Methods (3) – Sexual Abuse

Well-known Chinese lawyer Gao Zhisheng wrote in his third open letter to Chinesesexual abuse of Falun Gong Chairman Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao on Dec. 12, 2005 that, “…… the immoral acts that shocked my soul the most were the lewd yet routine practice of attacking women’s genitals by 6-10 Office staff and the police. Almost every woman’s genitals and breasts or every man’s genitals have been sexually assaulted during the persecution in a most vulgar fashion. Almost all who have been persecuted, be they male or female, were first stripped naked before any torture. No language or words could describe or re-create our government’s vulgarity and immorality in this respect.” This letter was written after his 15 days investigation of the persecution of Falun Gong ( see video on Youtube) in East and Northeast China.

(Picture above: illustration: Sexual Abuse on Falun Gong practitioner)

The forms of sexual torture include rape, molestation, shocking genitals with electric batons, raping Falun Gong practitioners with foreign objects (including toilet brushes and batons), shoving hot peppers into vaginas, pinching genitals or nipples even to the point of tearing them off, kicking genitals, piercing nipples with hot irons, stripping practitioners naked and beating them, forcefully administering drugs that cause menstruation to cease, and more.

The victims of such sexual abuse include young, unmarried women and seniors.

Cases

1. Young woman suffers mental breakdown following untold torture and rape (in 2004)Ms. Zhu Xia -2Ms. Zhu Xia

NEW YORK (FDI) – Thirty-two-year-old Ms. Zhu Xia cries, laughs, and often bangs on doors and windows madly. She soils her clothing uncontrollably, and has frequent hallucinations, tossing and turning restlessly amidst unseen enemies.

(Photo above: Ms. Zhu Xia, before and after sent to Brainwashing Center )

At night Zhu often throws her arms around her head defensively, screaming “Are you going to rape me?”

She has removed her blankets to sleep in the cotton fibers of her mattress and often curses “those terrible men,” muttering she “can’t take it anymore.”

This is not the young woman her family members described as “healthy and vibrant” before the police took her away because she practices Falun Gong.

Like hundreds of thousands – perhaps millions – of others in China, Zhu was detained by Chinese authorities and sent to brainwashing classes in order to force her to renounce Falun Gong.

She was held at the Pi County Brainwashing Center in Xinjin County, Sichuan Province.

On April 2, 2004, Pi Country authorities released Zhu. According to her family, Zhu’s mental and physical well-being had been devastated, and she had suffered a complete mental breakdown.

Zhu is no longer able to take care of herself, and is under the care of her mother.

The exact details of what Zhu went through in the Pi Country Brainwashing Center are unknown, although family members say her mental state and behavior leave little doubt she suffered untold torture and was repeatedly raped.
……

At the Dalian forced labor camp, numerous reports say women detainees have been hung spread-eagle from the ceiling as sticks and pepper oil are shoved into their vaginas – a torture technique known as “hip-splitting.” The men are stripped naked and shocked with electric batons shortly after being doused with water to intensify the electric currents. ( Full report of this torture case)

2. Genitals shocked with electric batons for several hours (in 2001)

Ms. Li YinpingOn June 4, 2001, Ms. Li Yinping was visiting a fellow practitioner’s home in Majia Village of Shouguang City, Weifang region (Shandong Province) when police from the Shouguang Police Station arrested her and all other Falun Gong practitioners who were there. They were all detained at the Sunji Police station, although no legitimate criminal charges were brought against them.

(Photo left: Ms. Li Yinping)

On the afternoon of June 6, 2001, Ms. Li, along with the other detained Falun Gong practitioners, requested unconditional release. The policemen dragged Ms. Li into the hallway and beat her with a rubber baton.

After drinking alcohol, five to six policemen began another round of torture. They slapped her face, twisted one of her arms behind her back, grabbed her hair and pulled her head back, hit her all over her body with rubber batons, and shocked her with electric batons. The policemen stripped Ms. Li of all of her clothing to inflict more pain by beating her unprotected skin. After beating her, the policemen chained her to an “iron chair.”

After taking a break, later on in the evening, the director of the detention center, Team Leader Wang, and other guards took turns shocking her genitals with electric batons. Her whole body was shaking, and had turned dark purple and black. She suffered severe pain, and lost consciousness several times. Each time, the guards revived her by pouring cold water on her so they could shock her again. One of the officers threatened to rape and kill her.

They continued to shock her with the batons even after she began spitting up blood. This torture lasted for several hours. Ms. Li was left chained to the iron chair, and she kept vomiting all night.

By early the next morning, June 7, 2001, Ms. Li had lost consciousness and her pulse was faint. She died later that day……. ( more details from Faluninfo.net)

3. A female practitioner raped by a police officer on the street ( in 2001)female practitioner

On the evening of May 14, 2001, a female Falun Gong practitioner from Beijing was beaten and raped on the street by a patrolling plainclothes police officer. The right-hand side photo was taken 9 days later after the incident.

“Finally, I was beaten to the ground and was not able to get up. Two of my front teeth were knocked out; several places on my head were hurt; my body was swollen and turned purple; my bones felt like they were falling apart. He then hit my right ear and temple hard with a stick and I lost consciousness. At this moment he pulled me under a bridge, tore my pants apart, and raped me. After that, he inserted a plastic baton forcefully into my vagina, and rode on my body. When I regained my strength and was able to shout, I shouted with all the strength I had: ‘Help! Catch this hooligan!’ The man seemed to have no fear. Finally, he got on his bicycle and rode away in a hurry, leaving me behind.”

4. Authorities order criminal inmates to strip, beat, and sexually abuse Ms. Liu Runling ( in 2002)

“Liu Runling, aged 38, resident of Hebei Province, was reportedly arrested on 28 September 2001 and detained at the No. 1 Detention Centre, where she remains.

“In January 2002, guards allegedly ordered several inmates to torture Ms. Liu because she refused to renounce Falun Gong. According to reports, they took her to a bathroom, where she was stripped naked and beaten. They reportedly inserted hair and used tissues into her vagina, and pierced her with needles for 40 minutes. It is reported that this left her covered with wounds and needle holes, and both her breasts allegedly turned black.”

Report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences; UN document number E/CN.4/2003/75/Add.2

5. Chinese Police Raped Female University graduate student while the other inmates watched ( in 2003)

NEW YORK (FDI) – On May 13th, 2003, policeman from the Chongqing City Detention Center stripped and raped a female graduate student as other prison inmates looked on, according to sources from Chongqing University in China.

Ms. Wei Xingyan, a 28-year old Chongqing University graduate student, was arrested on May 11th along with a group of other students and teachers for hanging banners and balloons commemorating May 13th, the official anniversary of the introduction of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong).

According to witnesses, on the evening of May 13th, several policemen took Wei to a cell in Baihelin Detention Center of Shapingba District. There, witnesses say the police officers forced two female inmates to strip her, and one of the uniformed policemen pushed her to the ground and raped her as the other inmates watched…….

6. Two Female Falun Gong Practitioners Raped by Chinese Police after Shocked by Electric Baton (in 2005) Liu Jizhi

“Around 2:00 p.m., a policeman named He Xuejian took Ms. Liu to a room with two beds in it. A very tanned policeman in his early 30’s with the nickname Dajun was laying on one of the beds. There was another policeman in his 40’s surnamed Wang in the room.

“He Xuejian savagely beat Ms.Liu as soon as they entered the room. Next he pressed her against a bed and started groping her breasts. Then he lifted her shirt up and shocked her breasts with an electric baton. While watching the sparks from the stun baton, He Xuejian repeatedly commented, “This is fun! This is fun!”

“The policeman surnamed Wang watched and said fiercely, “Beat her up! Beat her up good!” Then he left the room.

“Despite Ms. Liu’s protest and struggle, He Xuejian stripped off her shirt and sat on her stomach. Then he began to poke at her genitals with his finger. Then he switched to another position in order to remove her pants.

“During the struggle, Ms. Liu pleaded, “I am thinking for your own good—don’t do this to me! You are a policeman! You must not commit such a crime! This is totally wrong! You are a young man! I am an old woman. Please spare me.” He Xuejian ignored her plea and violently raped her. During the rape, He Xuejian repeatedly slapped her face and choked her.” …… ( more details from The Epochtimes’ report)
