Acts of Violence Committed in the Handan Forced Labour Camp

Li Qingsong, a Falun Gong practitioner in Handan City, Hebei Province, served his term of forced labour and was supposed to be released on July 25th, 2006. However, he was directly transferred from the forced labour camp to a brainwashing class by the Handan Municipal Government. His mother, who went to the Handan Forced Labour Camp to pick him up, was beaten and consequently suffered a fracture, as well as high blood pressure and a stroke.

On July 25th, 2006, at 5 a.m., Li Qingsong's sister and mother went to the Handan Forced Labour Camp. They asked to see Li Qingsong and requested that he be released, since he had already served the term. However, the camp authorities rejected their request, instead responding that they would never set him free. At around 8 p.m., Li Qingsong's cousin also arrived to pick him up. The camp authorities did not show any intention of releasing him. Instead, they called the police.

After a while, several police officials from Haocun Police Station of Fuxing District came. As soon as they arrived, and without a word, they began to beat the three ladies. One man covered Li Qingsong's sister's mouth. Another man slapped her mother's face, and rammed her head into the car. A policeman twisted her hand, causing her wrist to fracture. Finally, the three ladies were dragged away to a police vehicle, taken to a police station and locked up in three separate rooms.

Later, when Li Qingsong's sister heard her mother groaning loudly, she asked if she could take care of her mother, and she noticed that the old lady was lying on the ground, looking as though she was in extreme pain. She asked the police station to call an ambulance. When the physician of Handan No.1 Hospital came, the woman's systolic blood pressure was measured to be as high as 210. She was immediately hospitalised. Upon medical examination, it was revealed that she had a fracture in her left wrist, cerebral thrombosis, poor blood flow to the cardiac muscle, and urinary incontinence.

On the morning of July 26th, Li Qingsong's mother, with an infusion bottle in one hand, and accompanied by the other two ladies, went to the forced labour camp once more to ask for Li Qingsong's release. The police from the same station forced them to go back to the hospital.

It was said that Li Qingsong was sent to Qian'an brainwashing class on July 27th.

On July 28th, Li Qingsong's sister saw the section head Guo to find out for sure about Li Qingsong's whereabouts. However, Guo evaded her question and said that Qian'an brainwashing class had not responded to his call.

It has been confirmed that Li Qingsong has been sent to Qian'an brainwashing class, and that he went on a hunger strike to protest the detention. He is vomiting blood, and his life is in danger.
