Ms. Yang Wenling Tortured to the Point of Mental Breakdown at Tianjin Forced Labour Camp

Ms. Yang Wenling, a Falun Gong practitioner, lived in the Xiqing District of Tianjin City. Officer Liu Yu with the Liqizhuang Police Station in the Xiqing District conspired with multiple other officers from the District Police Department to ransack Ms. Yang's home. Then they forcibly arrested Ms. Yang in 2006. Liu and other officers also frequently harassed practitioners in his jurisdiction.

Ms. Yang was sentenced to one year in Banqiao Forced Labour Camp in Tianjin. She refused to give up Falun Gong, so Chinese Communist Party personnel forced her thumb print on a document that they wrote. The guards also incited criminals to beat her mercilessly and force-fed her with unknown drugs, causing her to become mentally unstable. Ms. Yang was forced to do physical work well over normal hours making paper cartons, which resulted in both of her thumbs being injured.

After she was released, the local Chinese Communist Party (CCP) personnel still did not leave her alone. Policeman Liu Yu frequently went to her home to harass, threaten, and intimidate her. He dispatched people to monitor Ms. Yang and tried to force her to give up practising Falun Gong.

The persecution caused Ms. Yang to suffer a mental breakdown, and sometimes when she goes out she cannot find her way home. At present she cannot lead a normal life.

Officer Liu Yu, Liqizhuang Police Station, the Xiqing District, Tianjin City: 86-22- 23922000
