Mr. Wang Xiaoping, a Falun Gong practitioner from Luzhou City, Sichuan Province, has been tortured many times because of his belief in Falun Gong. Currently, he is being detained at the Ganshan Psychiatric Hospital in Luzhou City, where he is forcibly given drugs and injections, and he is tortured both mentally and physically.
Mr. Wang Xiaoping, 36, lives in Shuikou Town, Gulin County, Luzhou City, Sichuan Province. He started practising Falun Gong in 1998. In January 2001, he planned to go to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. Chen Xuda, Wang Youyuan and two other thugs from Shuikou Town tracked him down and arrested him at the West Railroad Station in Beijing. They then took Mr. Wang with them to Tiananmen Square at the precise moment when the staged "Tiananmen Square Self Immolation Incident" was taking place.
Mr. Wang was then taken to Gulin County and confined in the Gulin Detention Centre. When Mr. Wang saw the news about the "Tiananmen Square Self Immolation Incident" on television in the detention centre, he realised the incident was staged to deceive the general public and instigate hatred toward Falun Gong. On March 15th, police officers from Gulin County paraded detained Falun Gong practitioners through the streets to humiliate them. Mr. Wang took the opportunity to tell onlookers that the "Tiananmen Square Self Immolation Incident" was staged.
The police took Mr. Wang back to detention centre and beat him mercilessly, but Mr. Wang insisted on speaking the truth. Later Mr. Wang was sentenced to a year and a half in a forced labour camp. He was detained in Xinhua Forced Labour Camp in Sichuan Province for 19 months (one month beyond his term). After being released, he went to Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province to find work. Xia Guoqing, the former party secretary of the Shuikou Township Communist Party Committee, followed Mr. Wang to Guangzhou City. Xia was dismissed from his post because Mr. Wang had gone to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. Xia also brought his wife to Guangzhou at the public's expense. Wherever Mr. Wang went, Xia Guoqing followed and joined with local police to harass Mr. Wang. Finally, Mr. Wang was forced to return to his hometown.
Zhong Shaoyan, party secretary of the Shuikou Township Communist Party Committee and former deputy director of the 610 Office1, assigned Wang Youyuan, Mr. Wang Xiaoping's brother, to monitor him. Zhong threatened that if Mr. Wang Xiaoping went to Beijing again, his brother Wang Youyuan would lose his job, and he would impound Mr. Wang's father's retirement pension. Zhong also tried to force Mr. Wang Xiaoping to give up his Falun Gong practice but Mr. Wang refused. In October 2005, Shuikou Township officials arrested Mr. Wang and detained him in the Ganshan Psychiatric Hospital in Luzhou City, where Mr. Wang was forcibly given drugs and injections designed to treat psychiatric patients. In addition, Mr. Wang was forced to pay two or three thousand yuan2 per month for this so-called treatment. The cost has reached tens of thousands of yuan by now. The torture has devastated Mr. Wang's physical and mental health.
We appeal to society to help rescue Mr. Wang Xiaoping immediately.
1. "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.
2. "Yuan" is the Chinese currency; 500 yuan is equal to the average monthly income of an urban worker in China.
