Mr. Deng Wenyang Tortured to Death in Hebei Province

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Deng Wenyang lived in Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. Since the start of the persecution he was arrested and detained at a forced labour camp multiple times. On September 26th, 2007, he was arrested again, and died from mistreatment ten days after being detained in the Gaoyang Forced Labour Camp.

Mr. Deng Wenyang was arrested on August 15th, 2007. On the same evening, 22 practitioners were arrested together by police officers Zhang Deyue (male) and Fu Yong. Mr. Deng Wenyang was taken to the Gaoyang Forced Labour Camp on August 30th. Later, he was taken home because he failed the physical.

On September 26th, Shanhaiguan District Police Department Director Zhao Ran and 610 Office1 Chair Zhang Deyue lead more than thirty police officers to storm into Mr. Deng's home when his physical condition had not yet recovered. They arrested him from his bed and carried him to a police vehicle in his under wear. Mr. Deng's old mother fainted when she saw her son being abducted under such conditions.

On the same day, police arrested another five Falun Dafa practitioners: Ms. Zhao Chunming, Ms. He Xiujie, Ms. Deng Guiyun, Ms. Dong Yuxian and Ms. Wang Guiqin.

Police detained Mr. Deng Wenyang in the Shanhai Guan District Detention Centre overnight then took him to the Gaoyang Labour Camp without fulfilling any legal procedures. In only ten days, Mr. Deng Wenyang died in the Gaoyang Labour Camp. Details are yet to be investigated.

Mr. Deng Wenyang, in his 30s, was formerly employed by the Shanhaiguan Bridge Factory. Because he firmly cultivated Falun Dafa, he was sentenced to three yeas of forced labour in 1999, which he served. He was severely mistreated in the Kaiping District Labour Camp in Tangshan City, Hebei Province and later transferred to the Gaoyang Labour Camp in Baoding City, where he continued to be tortured. For example, one day in the Gaoyang Labour Camp towards the end of 2000, guards forced more than one dozen practitioners to squat in the working plant. Then they cuffed the practitioners' hands apart, and electric baton shocked each of them for thirty minutes. Guards forced Mr. Deng to go through such torture for more than ten days until he passed out. Mr. Deng was released from the Gaoyang Labour Camp in 2002.

One practitioner detained in the same camp stated: "On November 18th, 2000, the Kaiping Labour Camp Administration was ordered to transfer all detained male Falun Dafa practitioners to the Gaoyang Labour Camp, which was known for its severe torture and vicious guards. Practitioners Mr. Gao Shucun, Mr. Deng Wenyang, Mr. Li Qiyue, and I, with 6 more practitioners, were assigned to the fifth ward, which is the most malicious ward. That evening, when we had just arrived, we were forced to stand in the yard and were not given any food. Guards and prisoners shocked us with electric batons and old-fashioned hand-crank phones: they attached our four limbs to the phones and cranked the handles nonstop, torturing us until past midnight.

Zhang Deyue and Fu Yong have been actively serving the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and working hard to persecute Falun Gong; they joined in on almost every practitioner mistreatment session. In June 2003, police from Shanhaiguan District and Qinhuangdao City arrested several dozen practitioners under the 610 Office's orders, even elderly women over fifty. Among these practitioners, many were forcibly taken to labour camps, and many were injured or disabled.

On April 14th, 2007, Zhang Deyuw and Fu Yong led the arrest of practitioners Mr. Wei Danquan, Mr. Liu Changfu, Ms. An Yumin, Mr. Zheng Zhicheng, Mr. Cheng Chao and Mr. Yang Xiaoyong. All practitioners' homes were ransacked. In the past several years, several dozens of practitioners in Shanhaiguan District were taken to forced labour camps, and several hundreds of practitioners have been detained, extorted money, forced to go through brainwashing sessions, tortured, forcibly taken to mental hospitals, severely injured and/or tortured to death.
