Article from German Newspaper Westfalen-Blatt: Torture Victim has Operation in Brakel and Receives Hip Replacement

Torture victim Zhen Wang is leaving St. Vincent’s Hospital in Brakel (Höxter County). Both of his hips were broken in a Chinese labour camp.

The mechanical engineer was arrested in 2001 because he is a follower of the Buddhist School Falun Gong practice. He was taken to a labour camp for re-education.

“After it became clear to them that I wasn’t willing to renounce Falun Gong or to write statements against the meditative practice that adheres to Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance, they tortured me,” he reminisces.

Other prisoners forced him to crouch down and stretched his legs, pressing them into the ground in such a way that both of his hips were broken and joints and tendons snapped. Later, Wang was able to move only painfully and with the help of crutches.

The operating surgeon, Dr. Rolf Haaker, chief of the Department of Orthopedics said: “These vicious tactics combined with additional brutal stresses in the forced labour camp caused serious damage that could only be alleviated by replacing the two hip joints with prosthesis.”

Wang, who escaped imprisonment in 2003 and has been living in Bielefeld with his wife since 2006, has other serious allegations against the communist system and its disdain for human rights. He is certain that prisoners are taken from the Chinese labour camps to have their organs harvested. He claims that the appropriate blood tests were done on him as well.

He had his first hip replacement in Brakel in 2006. The insurance paid the cost.
