Print  E-mail 


Qi Bingshu, female, 60 years old, resident of Beijing


Location of Detention and Torture:


Daliushu Mental Hospital, Dabeiyao Town, Chaoyang District, Beijing




1.      Staff of Daliushu Mental Hospital, Dabeiyao Town, Chaoyang District, Beijing

2.      Head of Beijing police station, Beijing


A Brief Report of the Incident:


Ms. Qi Bingshu is the granddaughter of the famous Chinese painter, Mr. Qi Baishi. She is a well-known painter in her own right. On April 25 of 1999, Ms. Qi Bingshu went to Zhongnanhai (Chinese central government compound) to appeal to the government for the legitimacy of the practice of Falun Gong. After July 20, 1999, she was arrested because of this. Because Ms. Qi refused to renounce Falun Gong, her brother, under high pressure from the police authorities, allowed her to be committed to the Daliushu mental hospital. The local police sub-station and the doctors in Daliushu Mental Hospital forcibly escorted her to the Daliushu Mental Hospital. She has been detained there for over one year now. Though she was healthy when she entered, the doctors in the mental hospital have been torturing her with forced injections and drugs. They also stated that she couldn't be released until she gives up Falun Gong. Before Ms. Qi was detained, she looked as young as a lady of 40. Since she was illegally detained, Ms. Qi was tortured to such an extent that the hair on both sides of her head has all become white and her hands constantly shake, making it extremely difficult for her to paint any more.
