On October 31st, 2005, Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Ma Qinghai was illegally arrested1 and detained at Aohan Detention Centre in Inner Mongolia. He has been on a hunger strike lasting 130 days in order to protest the persecution. Mr. Ma was unlawfully sentenced to nine years in prison and was sent to Chifeng Prison, where he has been brutally tortured.
While being held at Aohan Detention Centre, guard Miao Guangli and others savagely tortured and beat Ma Qinghai. Miao Guangli ordered about seven inmates to force-feed Mr. Ma through a contaminated rubber tube. The inmates inserted and pulled out the tube a dozen times until blood gushed from Ma Qinghai's nose and mouth and he lost consciousness. Due to the unbearable pain, Ma Qinghai bit the tube in half and part of the tube is now lodged inside his throat, obstructing his breathing. Guard Miao Guangli beat Ma Qinghai until he lost consciousness several times in a day. Gao Liang, head of the detention centre, forced Ma Qinghai, who had been on hunger strike for more than two months, to stand barefoot in the snow. They tied him to a torture bed 24 hours a day, severely bruising his body.
During this period, perpetrators from the Aohan Police Department and from the court fabricated charges and sentenced Ma Qinghai to nine years in prison, without Mr. Ma's signature and without notifying his family. On January 12th, 2006, they sent Ma Qinghai, who was weak from more than 70 days of hunger strike, to the Chifeng Prison. Recently, prison authorities force-fed Ma Qinghai with concentrated saline solution. Inmates knelt on his chest and held his neck with their hands; they nearly suffocated Ma Qinghai several times during the force-feeding and pinched his philtrum (acupuncture point in the indentation between the nose and upper lip) before he came to. Ma Qinghai sustained severe bruises on his face and neck. Yang Chunyue, head of the Chifeng City 610 Office2 and group head Ge denied knowledge of the inmates committing such an atrocity. Ma Qinghai has reached the limits of his physical and mental endurance. We hereby call on the assistance and support from people inside and outside China, to help free Ma Qinghai.

1. Illegally arrested: Contrary to what former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, who initiated the persecution, and the Chinese Communist Party would like the world to believe, practising Falun Gong is NOT illegal in China. Although the Public Security Department issued an unconstitutional set of restraints on the practice at the onset of the persecution in 1999, no laws have been passed by the only legislative body in China, the People's Congress, banning Falun Gong or granting the police the authority to arrest Falun Gong practitioners for practising the exercises or distributing flyers. For a more complete discussion of the illegality of the persecution of Falun Gong, please refer to the article "The Ban on Falun Gong—A Dictator's Whim, Not the Rule of Law". (Variation: "illegally sentenced")
2. "The 610 office" is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.
