Liu Jianli Drugged at Mental Hospital in Tangshan City, Hebei Province  
Print  E-mail 


Liu Jianli, male, a worker from the Nancang Coal Mine of Yutian County, Hebei province


Location of Detention and Torture:


Tangshan city Mental Hospital (also named No. 5 Hospital of Tangshan city), Tangshan city, Hebei province




1.      The head and communist officials of Nancang Coal Mine of Yutian County, Hebei province

2.      Doctors and nurses at Tangshan city Mental Hospital, Tangshan city, Hebei province


A Brief Report of the Incident:


On August 29, 1999, Mr. Liu Jianli tried to contact the local authorities to clarify a case defaming Falun Gong, but nobody would listen to him. Without any other channels to make his voice known, he went to Beijing to appeal, as is his right under the Chinese constitution. He was arrested there for engaging in such an appeal.


To prevent practitioners from going to Beijing to appeal, the communist regime has ordered the local officials to control the practitioners in their workplaces. If a practitioner does go to Beijing to appeal, the officials of the practitioner's workplace will be criticized and punished by the higher authorities. To avoid the punishment, the communist officials of Mr. Liu's workplace falsely reported that Mr. Liu was mentally ill (although Mr. Liu was very healthy), and threw him into the Tangshan city Mental Hospital in Tangshan city, Hebei province. Mr. Liu was forcibly medicated and injected with gradually increasing dosages. In the end, Mr. Liu could hardly walk after being so abused in the hospital.
