Print

Dafa practitioner Mr. Li Shuzhong from Beipiao City, Liaoning Province was arrested at around 6 o'clock on October 21st, 2005. Mr. Li was held at the Liangshuihe Detention Centre in Beipiao City. He has been on a hunger strike for 28 days in protest against the persecution and is extremely weak. The officials at the Beipiao City Politics and Law Committee, as well as those from the 610 Office1 and National Security Division, declared, "Last time after we arrested him, he held a hunger strike for 11 days and got out. This time no release will be granted, even if he dies!"

Li Shuzhong had his feet shackled when he was sent to the No 2 Hospital in Beipiao City for an IV infusion. He was also chained to the bed. Right now he is being force-fed and abused in other ways. According to witnesses, Li Shuzhong has lost consciousness and is very weak. He is sometimes in a coma. The perpetrators left the feeding tube in his stomach for long periods of time and covered up the tube with a face-mask.

Despite Li Shuzhong's condition, personnel from the Beipiao City National Security Division still insisted that he be present at an illegal trial. At around 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 13th, 2005, they carried the comatose Li Shuzhong from the hospital to the courthouse and held a secret trial that lasted less than ten minutes. They sentenced Li Shuzhong to five years in prison. On November 11th, Li Shuzhong's family went to intercede for him at the Beipiao City National Security Division, Beipiao City Procuratorate, Beipiao City Court, the 610 Office and the Liangshuihe Detention Centre, but the persecutors refused to take any action and absolved themselves from responsibility.

Li Shuzhong is affixed to a bed, shackled, and his ankles are red and bruised. At around 8:30 p.m. on November 15th, Li Shuzhong's stomach bled after long-term force-feeding, and he went into a coma. His oesophagus ulcerated and emitted an odour, and the perpetrators put a face-mask on him to cover it up. Li Shuzhong is held at the No 2 Hospital. The orders are to treat him until he recovers somewhat, so they can then send him to prison.

Li Shuzhong was detained eight times altogether for persisting in Falun Gong practice. On June 5th, 2001 he was sentenced to forced labour. He was held at the Xidayingzi Forced Labour Camp in Chaoyang City and at the Huludao City Forced Labour Camp. He was tortured until he sustained a massive brain haemorrhage and heart palpitations. He was very weak and coughed for long periods of time each day. During the detention, his employer unreasonably fired him. Beipiao City "610 Office" personnel and those from the National Security Bureau threatened his wife with firing her from her job. His wife could no longer endure the threats and intimidation and divorced Li Shuzhong on March 10th, 2005.

At around 6:00 a.m. on October 21st, 2005, three officers went to the home of Dafa practitioner Zhu Yunqin and tried to take her to the police station. Zhu Yunqin and her family resisted the attempted arrest. Li Shuzhong was at their home around that time. The police made a phone call, and soon four additional officers led by police chief Bai Guangwu arrived. They smashed the glass door and barged inside. Six officers dragged Zhu Yunqin off her bed. Zhu Yunqin's family confronted the police, "Why are you arresting people for no reason?" The police said, "There is no justice! The Communist Party doesn't care about 'reason', so what can you do?"

According to a reliable source, the No. 2 Hospital is unwilling to continue treating Li Shuzhong because he is in critical condition. He has been returned to the Liangshuihe Detention Centre for further persecution.
