Young Man Partially Paralysed Due to Mistreatment in Police Custody in Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province, is Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison

Mr. Chen Gang, a thirty six year old Falun Gong practitioner from Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province was arrested by the authorities of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) including police, court and procuratorate. During his detention, because of his practice of Falun Gong, he was mistreated to such an extent that his appearance was that of a man in his fifties. On July 10th, 2009, the corrupt court sentenced him to three years in prison.

In the court Mr. Chen stated openly, "Falun Gong is not an evil cult, but is persecuted by the CCP. I practise Falun Gong because I want to be a good person, so I do not accept this verdict." Mr. Chen's father attended the trial but was forbidden from talking to his son. He was told if he did, that he would be immediately evicted from the court. The verdict stated that Mr. Chen's three year sentence had already been shortened because the court had taken into consideration the fact that his elderly father was living alone and that he was in poor physical condition.

One day in the beginning of 2008, when Mr. Chen was working, he was arrested by eight CCP officials including police officers Su Jianhua and Zhou Jun, from the Police Department of Nanjing City, Huang Shuicheng, from the Domestic Security Squadron of Baixia District, Pan Xiaozhong, a police officer from the local police station and Chen, an official in charge of the residential area. Without any legal procedure or permission these CCP officials ransacked his home. Huang found two bank deposit books belonging to Mr. Chen's perished mother and two golden earrings of his grandmothers and wanted to take them away. Seeing this, Mr. Chen's father seized them from Huang's hand and questioned him, "Are these things also to be used as evidence to incriminate my son for his practice of Falun Gong?"Knowing that he was wrong, Huang did not dare to take away this private property.

Before Mr. Chen was sentenced by the court he had been held in the Detention Centre of Baixia District, Nanjing City for one and a half years. During this time he was repeatedly mistreated. As a result he suffered a stoke, memory lose, paralysis in his lower body amongst other diseases. He also became lame and extremely emaciated.
