Another Police Rape

Serial Rape of Falun Gong Practitioners in Hebei


...Ms. Liu pleaded with him, saying, "I am thinking for your own good. You shouldn’t do this to me! You are a policeman and 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...

At around 2:00 p.m., November 25, 2005, 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 lying 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, pressed her against a bed and started groping her breasts. He lifted her shirt up and shocked her breasts with a stun baton. While watching the sparks from the stun baton, He Xuejian repeatedly told the others, "This is fun! This is fun!" The policeman surnamed Wang watched and egged him on, "Beat her up! Beat her up good!" Then he left the room. Although Ms. Liu protested and struggled, He Xuejian stripped off her shirt and sat on her stomach, poked at her genitals with his finger and then removed her pants.

During the struggle, Ms. Liu pleaded with him, saying, "I am thinking for your own good. You shouldn’t do this to me! You are a policeman and 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, took out his penis and penetrated her. During the rape, He Xuejian repeatedly slapped Ms. Liu’s face and choked her. Ms. Liu screamed out for help, but no one outside of the room responded.

Afterwards, He Xuejian put on his pants and made lewd comments. Ms. Liu burst into tears. While she was leaving the room, she saw that He Xuejian was taking the other practitioner, Ms. Han Yuzhi to the room. He Xuejian also raped her. After the rape, the police forced Ms. Liu to mop the floor, and clean the rooms and the office. According to Ms. Liu, her legs were weak and she was in shock from the horrible rape. After Ms. Han Yuzhi was raped, she was also forced to mop the floors and wash police cars.

The rapes happened while the U.N. Special Rapporteur on the Question of Torture was in Beijing conducting an investigation of torture in China.

More persecution, including rape

More on the persecution:


(RAPE )- Zhongba Forced Labor Camp Officials in Guizhou Province

A Dafa disciple with a last name of Zhou, 28 years old, was illegally detained at the Zhongba Women's Forced Labor Camp, in Guizhou Province. Police team leader Gu Xingying said that supervisors were coming for an inspection so he blocked all detainees inside the iron door, not allowing them to go out. Only Zhou was locked up in the guard office on the first floor for an "intensive assault." After a while, three men went into the office on the first floor from outside. After about forty or fifty minutes, the three men walked out laughing. The first asked the second, "Wasn't that fun?" The second replied, "Not when she tried to resist." The third said, "We raped her, but nobody will dare to do anything to us.
The "inspection" finished after these people left. Later, another two supervisors came to do an inspection. Zhou was locked up in the "intensive assault unit" on the third floor. Gu Xingying brought in two people from the outside again. They had inmates handcuff Zhou's hands and feet to the metal bed, and proceeded to rape her.

Persecution of Practitioners from Xinhua Forced Labor Camp, Mianyang, Sichuan Province

Xinhua Labor Camp in Mianyang City, Sichuan Province is an evil place especially designed for persecuting male practitioners from Sichuan Province. Since July 20, 1999, countless Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted at the camp. They have endured many different tortures such as serious beatings, being bound by a police rope, shocked by electric batons, beaten by spiked batons, sitting on the tiger bench, standing facing the wall for long periods of time, being hung up, two practitioners shackled together, wearing cotton coats in the summer, being forced to do long-term labor without sleep, being force fed, being forced to take drugs, being injected with unknown drugs, being locked in a small cell, having a dirty cloth stuffed into one's mouth, not being permitted to talk, not being permitted to move, and having one's forced labor sentence illegally extended......

Guards Li Changjun and Zhang Xiaogang called over 10 security guards to come in and hold Mr. Jing Changxu down so they could shock him with electric batons. They also knocked him down on the ground, stepped on his back, tied his legs up with police rope, and forced him to take off his clothes and wear only a single layer for several hours in the chilly winter. Even now Mr. Jing still has the marks on his face where he was shocked and carries bruises on his neck and his chest.

When practitioner Mr. Ma Zhigang finished his labor term and was about to go home, the police officers asked him, "Is Falun Dafa good? Will you practice it after you go home?" Mr. Ma replied, "Falun Dafa is good. I will practice it after I go home!" The police then prohibited him from leaving the prison and tortured him for two more months.

Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zhu E and Her Family Relentlessly Persecuted

The abusers at the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City tortured Ms. Zhu savagely. They forced her to squat, stand and "fly an airplane" (1). Other gross abuses included forcing her to sit in a double-crossed leg position with her hands behind her and forbidding her from moving or using the restroom for three days. They made her sit in this uncomfortable and painful position for more than eight hours each day, until she was in agony. The abusers frequently hit her with bamboo planks, rubber hoses, and wooden sticks.

Ms. Zhu was also handcuffed to the door of the solitary confinement cell for ten hours until her arm and hand were so swollen she could not make a fist. Electric shock is commonplace, which often resulted in large blisters and scorched flesh all over her body. In July 2000, guard Zhang Guimei disfigured her face with electric baton(s). Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhu felt her face was on fire, and she could not sit or stand at ease. She could not sleep at night due to pain, so she sat up and held her face.
Ms. Zhu went on a hunger strike many times to protest the persecution and demanded her unconditional release. The frequent force-feedings made her nose and mouth bleed, often putting her in a state of near-suffocation. This made her cough and vomit blood long after the force-feeding.
