Mr. Yang Guang, 50, is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Changchun. Because of his steadfast belief, he was severely persecuted, and became paralysed from the waist down from a cruel torture used to extort evidence from him. He is currently being held in Jilin Prison's "naked district," where he suffers humiliation and misery in the company of psychotic, disabled inmates.
Mr. Yang Guang was held in the No. 7 Public Security Bureau, where officials brutally tortured him in order to extort evidence. The police beat him ruthlessly, using all kinds of torture devices and broke his right leg. Later his hipbone became necrotic. The police had to carry him into the prison. Now, his right leg is disabled, his toes are deformed and festering, and he can no longer take care of himself. He is fifty years old but looks like a frail old man with his white hair and emaciated body.
Mr. Yang Guang is held in the "naked district" of the prison, where inmates are forbidden to wear trousers all year long. Because of his paralysis, inmates made him a special chair, similar to a wheelchair. It has a steel pipe structure with four wheels, and a board for the back and sides, and with a big hole in the seat. Whenever he needs to relieve himself, other inmates wheel him to the toilet area, but because the side of the chair is blocked by a board, he cannot clean himself afterwards. He is surrounded by urine, faeces and filthy smells continuously.
This district where Yang Guang and other disabled and psychotic inmates are being held never receives any sunlight. The conditions are intolerable, and it is extremely hot in the summer and cold in the winter. The sleeping quarters measure less than 60 cm (24 in.) in length, and the food is very poor, with no fat or oils used. When it is time to clean, they wheel Yang Guang to the water room, spray him with a pressure hose, and wash him with a mop, calling it a "cosmetic shower."
Mr. Yang was recently sent to the Province Centre Hospital. His old injuries have not healed, and now his upper extremities are also disabled from intensified persecution. He is now completely disabled, yet the police are still persecuting him. They sent him back to prison from the hospital.
